Fluid Retention— Dropsy (Kidney Failure)

OptimalU tip with Dr Bob.

And behold, there was a certain man before
Him who had dropsy. …And He…healed
him, and let him go. —Luke 14:2,4

Dropsy—fluid retention, swelling, edema, and swollen ankles—is the result of a toxic liver. Increasing protein consumption can also relieve the body of extra fluid.

TODAY’S TIP: Avoid white potatoes, which are a nightshade vegetable and may create water retention. Parsley is an excellent kidney purifying herb.
