Bloating, Swelling and Water Retention
Sometimes, however, we suffer from bloating, swelling and fluid (water) retention. Water retention is an excessive build up of fluid in various parts of the body, including tissues, body cavities and the circulatory system.
The most common causes of fluid retention are a high sodium (salt) intake, weak circulation in leg veins, congestion or blockage of the lymphatic system and, in women, hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
Other causes can also include prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medicine, overweight or obesity, low-calorie and acidic diets, a build up of metabolic wastes (toxins) throughout the body, allergies, inflammation and various health issues.
