A patient recently passed along a great tip for swollen ankles and I thought I'd share it here. It's simple and easy to do (and I've heard it makes your house smell wonderful).
What you need:
1/2 gallon of water
2 bunches of parsley
Bring 1/2 gallon of water to a boil and add 2 bunches of parsley.
Let simmer for 2 hours.
Strain the parsley and drink water as needed.
**Drink 16oz to start and then a glass every two hours till the batch is gone. Be careful not to drink too close to bed time or you might be releasing that extra fluid into the wee hours. :)
Let us know how it works for you!
