Dr Oz: Swollen Feet Causes, Home Remedies & Pitting Edema

By on May 26, 2010

Doctor Oz was asked by a lady what is causes swollen feet?  She told Dr Oz that her feet have been swollen for over a week.  How can you prevent your feet from swelling?  And how do you make the swelling go down? Swollen Feet Home Remedies

Dr Oz pushed on her foot lightly and showed how pushing on her foot creates a pit that takes a few seconds to go away – this is called Pitting Edema.  If you have just one swollen foot or leg, this could be a sign of an infection or a blocked vein in one leg.  If the swelling is in both legs, you could have high blood pressure or the swelling could be caused from standing all day or eating too much salt.

Swollen Feet Home Remedy

Dr Oz suggested that if you have swollen feet, you should elevate your legs above your heart when you sleep at night.  My problem is that I always find that position very hard to sleep in.  Does anyone else have another Swollen Feet Home Remedy?
