Swollen foot remedy: Foot baths
Hydrotherapy is a fancy name for alternating dips between hot and cold water baths. The hot water allows the blood vessels to dilate, while the cold water causes them to contract. This helps improve circulation, which can reduce and prevent pooling of fluids in the feet and ankles. Try putting your feet in the hot water for three to five minutes, and then into the cold water bath for 30 to 60 seconds. Continue alternating between the two for 15 to 20 minutes. Do this a few times a day.
Swollen foot remedy: Epsom salt
Give your bath a boost by adding Epsom salt. The magnesium sulfate in Epsom salt works to reduce swelling and improve circulation, and is easily absorbed through the skin, giving you immediate relief from swelling and the pain associated with it. Mix half a cup of Epsom salt in a foot tub with either warm or cool water for 10 to 20 minutes. Repeat up to three times a week—and get some anxiety relief as a bonus.
