1. 按著時辰睡覺 — 晚上11時至凌晨1時為膽經當值時間,凌晨1時至3時為肝經當值,此時睡覺就能讓負責代謝身體廢物的肝腎得到充份休息,加強排毒能力,水腫問題自然減少。

2. 不過分進補 — 過份滋陰也會出現水腫,不宜過份食用滋膩食物如花膠、紅棗及奶類製品等。肥甘厚味食物容易令身體出現水腫,尤其是醬汁、精製食物、火鍋、燒烤、煎炸食物等等,鈉含量比較高,吃後翌日特別容易出現水腫問題。

3. 健脾袪濕 — 脾胃健康身體不會聚濕,適量進食健脾袪濕的食物如淮山、眉豆、茯苓等,有助排走濕氣,每日喝一杯米水,減低脾胃負擔。

4. 適量運動及補充水份 — 每星期做適量帶氧運動,讓身體微微發汗,運動後記得補充水份,有人怕多喝水會引致水腫,事實是身體水份不足才會引致水腫。

4 important points to fight away edema

These bad habits include eating too much fried, oily and heavy flavored food like hot pot, barbecue, thick sauce, cold/raw, spicy food, or stay up all night and having inadequate sleep.
