Dandelion Root for Edema

I arrived at the hospital a little dehydrated from the preceding weekend's HG battle so they put bag after bag of i.v. fluids into me. I looked like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in no time at all and I had severe swelling (edema) in my legs afterwards.

I made powdered Dandelion Root capsules to help me shed the fluid. I took 4 450 mg capsules 2-3 times a day. This helped me pass the bulk of the fluid in 48 hours. I highly recommend staying near a bathroom if you have a lot of fluid accumulation and you try this herbal remedy.
