Brand new here and on the BTD (about 9 days) - i was wondering if some of you could share your success stories in relation to edema. I am thin and healthy but have dealt with unexplained edema in my feet and legs for years. I am trying the BTD in hopes that I can get some healing and would love to hear some of your stories to keep me pressing on.   Thanks!

DJH,

Welcome to the forums.  You're on the right track with the BTD and you'll learn alot as time goes on.

I'm dealing with some edema only on my left calf and ankle.  I unfortunately have a varicose vein on my left calf.  

I don't believe this is your particular issue at all as you would have mentioned it and you said otherwise you are thin and healthy.

Edema can have alot of causes and I'm not going to presume I have the answer for you.

I do suggest though that you take a look at the two sites I listed under my post for "Anyone dealing with varicose veins".  I just started taking a supplement called rutin 500mg by Solgar that I never knew existed.

As with all supplements read the cautions but it did say side effects are rare.  One of the benefits, and there seem to be many is it may reduce edema.  Also, it helps with blood circulation.

Just a suggestion.

Are you otherwise healthy?  Sometimes it can be a sign of congestive heart issues.

Yes, healthy, 42 years old. I have had it for years (since my 20's) and docs have never been able to figure it out (they call it lymphodema, but there is explanation as to why I have it). I've been on my own path now the past few years trying to figure it out and haven't had success (have gone various forms of GF, soy and dairy free, and the list goes on). The only time I had relief was for a short time after having my babies. So maybe I should avoid all grains with gluten? I guess that would take out some of what I have been eating following the BTD? Thanks

I had edema in the past and do not have it now - so the diet may have fixed it.  Magnesium seemed to help.

Thanks - glad to hear there is someone out there who has experienced edema in the past and are now free from it. I am on magnesium right now, too, so hopefully diet combined with that will work!

Thanks, Joy. I don't have any varicose veins at all. I did have surgery in my foot (the one that swells worse than the other) at 18, but I have experienced a time, after I had my girls, when the swelling was all gone. So I believe it can be gone again!

DJH,

Perhaps I should not have given a reason for my taking Rutin.  I know that you do not have varicose veins and for that you should be glad in some sense.

Given what the doctor says you do have you may want to give rutin a "test run" as they say.  Maybe a trial for a month or so to see if it helps in any way.

The benefits specifically state that it is good for circulatory system and makes the capillaries stronger and improves blood circulation.  

It has anti-inflammatory properties which are good for alleviating inflammation caused by diseases.
It may be beneficiary in reducing venous edema of the legs.

Since you do have a diagnosis, wouldn't you want to at least try to alleviate to some degree the symptom of edema?,

I can advise you based on my experience:
no gluten and sugar (cakes and biscuits)
no buckwheat, quinoa, rice for dinner
no dairy cow
No ice cream with cow's milk proteins and cereals
No legumes with cereals (rice and lentils, pasta and beans etc. ..)
ok dinner fish (cooked, ham) with legumes permits
ok dinner meat with vegetables or legumes permits
I think that the night my legs hurt less, you'll sleep well though ..... just like all the Zeros
ciao

There is no doubt in my mind about any illness, discomfort, or feelings of misery, you will get better with BTD of any kind over a long time, keeping with mostly beneficials and super/diamond foods.

If you find one or the other helpful tip, follow it and things might even get miraculously better.  

For instance..----I suffered for decades with all kinds of labels, and most went away.  Yet, I have been battling headaches over decades, along with BTD and nothing worked.  Then I took Dr D's Trehalose Complex (sugar replacement / with Ribose) for the clearing up of some brain debre and other issues, (considering that getting Alzheimer when older, because I am diabetic is a 50% possibility)  The side effect TC for me was that my daily headaches slowly became fewer and I could focus on what might be a CAUSE of them.. Without that temporary relieve of frequency it was not possible for me to decide what might be behind it.  Recently I seem to feel that it is stress related which start in severe neck tension.  THIS week I address this by taking Milk of Magnesium as soon as a tension situation makes itself known to me.. IT seems to possibly be a way to have stopped getting the stress related headaches.---  

There would be no possibility of this if I was not on BTD/Swami.. because without adherence to that, I would be tons overweight (lost 50) and puffy beyond anything I wish to think about.  

All the best, and take your time.. time will heal. BTD is a great start.      


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
