Treat Fluid Retention and Bloating with one easy trick!

Treat Fluid Retention and Bloating with one easy trick! - By Bellabaci Cupping and Natural Massage Oils

Want to treat fluid retention, belly bloating and swollen ankles? Fluid retention makes us feel heavy and uncomfortable. Cupping Massage is so much more than just a pain relief treatment, it is also a simple solution to bring balance and comfort to stressed fluid-retaining bodies.

Scientists say certain foods play a major role in our body’s water balance. Eating the right foods can help you expel the excess fluid retention naturally. Now, combine that with an 8 minute Bellabaci Cupping Massage or Lymphatic Drainage treatment, and you are well on your way to the land of comfort!

Cupping Massage is different to the ancient form of Cupping where cups are left stationary, giving those tell-tale circular marks which we call cup kisses. Massaging yourself with hand-squeezed suction cups allows you to pick up the water-retaining layers to help move it along. When we work towards the heart, meaning from your ankles to your knees and so on, we support our body’s natural expelling mechanism. A bonus is that it brings immediate relief, right where and when you need it.

Due to the fact that Cupping Massage also assists product penetration, make sure that what you use as a massage oil, is a healthy choice. The Bellabaci Circuflow Kit also contains the award-winning Kese, a mitt made of natural fibres which visibly boosts your micro-circulation when used to exfoliate the body. FYI – It is also great to treat ingrown hair! Contact us today to find out more about the Bellabaci Product line and find your perfect health-boosting choice!

Here are the food facts..

Water

Think restricting your water intake will reduce your bloating? Dehydration will actually make your body hold on to water. If you want to treat fluid retention, drink, drink and drink some more. Drink a glass as soon as you wake up and keep sipping all day. Aim for eight (8-ounce) glasses daily. Slip in a few slices of lemon, lime, or orange. Citrus is high in potassium and can help relieve bloating.

Fruit

Melons, raisons, coconut, avocados, bananas and citrus fruits will help reduce fluid retention because they are high in the mineral potassium that balances sodium levels. Start your day with a fruit salad or a fruit smoothie.

Watercress

Watercress, an often overlooked leafy green, is a natural diuretic that is also high in potassium. Other bloat-fighting foods include other leafy greens, celery, tomatoes, carrots, onions, and peppers. The flavonoids in vegetables (and fruit) can help treat fluid retention. Get your fill by tossing veggies into a salad at lunch and dinner.

Salmon

Loaded with omega-3s, salmon is a super food that is not only food for the heart, brain, and joints, it can also fend off PMS. Other rich sources of omega-3s include tuna, mackerel, herring, and flax. Include salmon and other fatty fish in your diet at least twice per week.

Whole grains and nuts

Tasty sources of vitamin B6, a nutrient associated with PMS relief, whole grain products and nuts are a good snack-choice when you’re feeling bloated. Make sure the whole grains you choose are low in sodium and avoid salted nuts. Bonus: Whole grains are a great source of fiber and nuts are packed with good fats.

Herbs

Some herbs are also believed to help reduce fluid retention. Celery seed (do not take if you are pregnant), oregano, and dandelion root are just a few bloat-fighting options. Talk to a naturopath or herbalist about these herbs and others that are natural diuretics.

Foods to avoid

Putting down the salt shaker is only one way to treat fluid retention. More importantly, limit your intake of processed and packaged foods, which are nearly always loaded with sodium. Instead, comprise your diet of fresh, wholesome foods, which in addition to reducing your risk of bloating, are a boon to your health.
