2. Epsom Salt

After discussing how too much salt can be the cause of bloating, it may seem counterintuitive to use Epsom salt to reduce it. However, adding 2 cups of Epsom salt to your bath and soaking in it for 20 to 30 minutes can help drastically reduce bloating as well as repair muscle damage (8).

Epsom salt also contains magnesium, which makes its way into the bloodstream through the skin. This can help treat edema caused by a nutritional deficiency.

While the healing properties of Epsom Salt are powerful, it’s suggested to keep your salt baths to once a week instead of daily.


3. Parsley

This herb holds very similar properties as dandelion tea, as it is also a powerful diuretic and detoxifier. Parsley also helps smooth over the digestive process and promotes faster waste elimination. It also protects the urinary tract, from infection and kidney stones (9).

To take, steep a few teaspoons of dried parsley in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Drink 3 times a day.
