Nina's Health Protocol:
It may seem counterintuitive, but drinking enough water can actually help reduce water retention. When your body is adequately hydrated, it is less likely to hold onto excess water.
Reduce Sodium Intake: Limit your intake of high-sodium processed foods, such as salty snacks, canned soups, and fast food.
Include potassium-rich foods in your diet, such as bananas, avocados, spinach, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes.
Eat Foods with Natural Diuretic Properties: Examples include cucumber, celery, watermelon, asparagus, and parsley. Including these foods in your diet can help with fluid balance.
Certain herbal teas, such as dandelion tea and nettle tea, have mild diuretic properties and may help reduce water retention. Enjoy them as part of your hydration routine.
Exercise Regularly: Regular physical activity can help stimulate circulation and lymphatic flow, which may aid in reducing water retention.
Engage in activities like walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming. Limit Alcohol Intake: Alcohol can dehydrate the body and contribute to fluid retention.
