If you’ve ever felt tired and noticed unusual swelling in your hands and feet, your kidneys may need a little love. My favorite kidney-soothing trick: sipping two cups of dandelion tea each day. This bittersweet brew contains powerful diuretic compounds that stimulate the kidneys to release excess fluids, flushing bloat from your hands and feet and replenishing potassium, a mineral that helps prevent fluid buildup in the future. A brand to try: Traditional Medicinals Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Tea.
You can slash energy-sapping inflammation just by kicking off your shoes. When the body comes into contact with the earth (called “grounding”), it absorbs free electrons from the ground, neutralizing harmful free radicals enough to cut inflammation by 277%!
