You can easily gain 1-2 kg, even a dress size, if you are experiencing fluid retention.
For most women, hormonal fluctuation is the main cause of fluid retention. Food allergies and intolerance can also be a cause for water retention. Although you may not be able to get rid of all the fluids that Mother Nature imposes on you, there are a few things you can do to reduce the “impact”:
- Stay hydrated
- Reduce salt intake
- Reduce sugar intake
- Reduce toxic load and detox regularly
- Use herbs with diuretic properties such as dandelion greens, uva ursi, corn silk, alfalfa, stinging nettle, celery seeds and parsley
- Use sauna to help relieve stored water
- Discover if you may have any food allergies or intolerance by having a consultation with me.
