I’m desperately seeking a natural homeopathy way to combat water retention. On hot days I become a sweat-ball, particularly my face and neck. Thanks

  • Eat less salt, get your kidney function checked and your heart.

  • in our home we add salt to our water especially salt with minerals like himilayan salt might help keep your fluids in more and last longer..

  • I’d visit GP to ensure there are not medical issues… If all is well then you need to reduce your sodium intake. High sodium diets will cause you to hold water. So decrease sodium and increase water. The more you drink the more you will expell

  • limit your salt intake and keep up the fluids

  • I would check with your doctor just to make sure something else is not wrong.

  • agree, drink more water and avoid salt

  • It sounds weird but drink more water!

  • there are some good comments here

  • you have my problems i glad you have the courage to ask

  • I find peppermint tea reduces water retention, also apple cider vinegar. Though you can down a shot of ap. cid. vinegar straight, you can also put it on a salad or in a smoothie.

  • I hope you found a solution

  • Interesting answers. I hope some helped you

  • hope it all works out

  • Some good answers here that i can try too

  • Reduce salt and try a good brand celery seed tablet combined with vit B6. This combo reduced my water retention as much as one size in jeans. You need to go to the loo heaps though so best on days you are home.
