Causes of water retention in the body
These are just the fundamentals of healthy eating. If you’re eating a poor diet right now, then this information will help lower your problem a whole lot within just a few months.
Fighting Other Reasons For Water Retention
A lot of men and women suffer from water retention due to nutritional deficiencies. Quite simply, if you eat and drink a lot of sugary food or deep-fried food, and not enough fresh fruit and vegetables, you won’t get enough of the minerals and vitamins your body has to produce the hormones which help avoid water retention.
A few of the causes of water retention are rather simple, like eating a lot of salty food or not drinking enough water. Salt contains a compound called sodium, which slows down your excretion of water. Not drinking enough water makes you dehydrated, which teaches your body to continue to water.
If your physician gives these organs the all-clear, you can be extremely thankful. It means your fluid retention likely has causes that are much easier to take care of.
If you believe you suffer from water retention (also called fluid retention, or occasionally oedema or edema), you probably have a bloated stomach, or bloated hands, face or feet. Water retention causes swellings in any area of the body. The surplus water leaks from your tiniest blood vessels and accumulates from the areas between the cells that make up the cells of your body (muscle, brain, skin tissue and so forth). These spaces can store extra water, and as they do this, they expand, which causes the swelling.
Histamine is a chemical your body produces when it’s inflamed. Have you ever heard of taking medications called ‘anti-histamines’ for hay fever? Hay fever is a sort of inflammation that occurs when someone who’s sensitive to pollen inhales it. The eyes and nose flow as the body releases water from its little blood vessels in an attempt to wash the pollen away. However, in the case of water retention that the water isn’t released from the body via the nose and eyes.
If your water retention is more intense, and is making your feet, ankles or legs really swollen, you should consult a physician to check your kidneys and heart are OK. Another cause of acute fluid retention–in this instance in the gut–is alcoholism. Liver damage brought on by alcohol misuse can cause as much fluid to accumulate in your tummy which you could really feel it swishing around.
If you wish to eliminate this issue, the first thing to do is consume dark blue and purple fruits in addition to green vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli or dark green lettuce daily. Cut deep-fried foods, hamburgers, red meat and fatty sauces like mayonnaise down to no more than twice per week. Cut candies, candy, sodas and chocolate down to once per week. And do not forget to lower salt and salty food to a minimum and drink two litres of water daily.
If you don’t begin to lose your water retention by following this information, you might have to test to find out whether any particular foods are developing plenty of histamine within your body. The waterfall diet book (see below) includes a test procedure, and it has helped a great deal of people.
But if the offending substances are still impact the entire body, swelling and inflammation can become irreversible. I am not speaking here about severe food allergies such as peanuts or shellfish. I’m referring to a milder form due to not properly digesting some foods. This situation can begin suddenly and go on for quite a long time. The longer it goes on, the worse your water retention will get.
