10 Natural Remedies for Swollen Ankles

10 Simple Home Solutions for Swollen Ankles
Do you have swollen ankles? It is likely that your ankles have retained some fluid. The body has a system of maintaining the fluid balance between the cells, bloodstream, and lymphatic system. If the ankles retain fluids, then one or more factors are offsetting the balance. If your ankles swell for more than a few days, seek medical attention. Before that, here are a few remedies to ease the pain and reduce swelling.

Eat Foods Rich in Potassium

Potassium can help balance the electrolytes and the fluids in the body. If you take enough potassium, you will have no cases of fluid retention. Bananas provide enough potassium for your body’s function. You can blend them in fresh milk or yogurt and add cocoa to create a sweet smoothie, or you can eat them just the way they are. Other sources of potassium include dry fruits, green vegetables, and beans. If you have a kidney problem, keep your potassium intake low.
