    Swollen Ankles and Feet relief?

    With the warmer weather and being on my feet all day at work I have real problems with swollen ankles and feet. Very red and uncomfortable. Any non-medicine tips that would help? Either exercises or herbal. Many thanks in advance for advice given.

    reduce salt intake and  give rest to your feet as often as you can. do some leg excersice when you ge a free time. when you are sleeping keep pillows under your legs which will to elevate your leg and helps to reduce the swelling.

    Yes seeker 7, I know how much this hurt. You'll not emagine that the cure is in your kitchen. Just grab the olive oil bottle and rub your ankle and feet gently while your legs are lefted up on a chair or a table with a folded towel or a little pillow under the cavity over you feet. Try keeping your feet lefted as long as you're sitting.

    Try and keep your feet up as much as you can.  Drink plenty of water.  I would also personally have an MOT with the doc just to make sure something else isn't going on.  Probably not, its more than likely nothing, just warm weather as you say, but our bodies have a habit of letting us know in advance so better to put yr mind at rest.

    If you have a partner, spouse, sibling, etc. living with you, ask them to massage your swollen ankles and feet. You can massage yourself too, of course (it just is nicer when someone does it for you).

    You want to stimulate circulation by massaging toward the direction of your heart (up vs. down). You don't have to press hard to get a good result.

    Do a search on lymphatic massage; this will help alleviate the redness and reduce the swelling. As mentioned elsewhere, watch your salt intake and be sure you are taking in the right amount of fluids.

    Feel better!

    massage your feet and hands.  these are the furthest from the heart so it promotes circulation.  get a rebounder or a trampoline and bounce on it.  helps the body to move fluids, lymph, etc. through it.

    Give a gentle rub under your feet and then soak in lukewarm water for half an hour. It should be able to relieve the swollen ankle.That is what I do when that happens.

    As complimentary to the advises by the other comments, try also Pycnogenol. It has many beneficial properties, among which is its strong anti inflammatory effects.

    Here is an excellent product:

    You might try those foot bath tubs. They heat up the water and massage the bottoms of your feet.  You might also try adding minerals to the water.
