How does it work?
It is confusing because salt intake causes swelling and high blood pressure, but this powerful salt solution over the skin has the opposite effect because through the skin it helps in reducing the liquid from the body and acts as a diuretic.
You can get rid of swollen legs in similar way.
This is what you should do:
Dissolve 0.5 kg of salt in 5 liters of cold water. Soak a soft towel in the solution, gently squeeze it and put it on the lumbar back for about 20 minutes. Repeat the procedure for 10 days, every night before sleeping.
You will have increased urination after this procedure,and that’s the reason why the swelling will be eliminated.
Another way to use this saline leg compress is to soak a gauze in a warm saline solution, squeeze it and put it around the swollen legs. Keep you legs under a warm blanket for 20 minutes.
