Edema of the legs

Today I treated a patient with very bad swelling of the lower legs and ankles. His condition is essentially idiopathic, meaning doctors don’t know what caused it. His heart is fine, his circulation is fine, and water pills/blood pressure pills are not doing the trick.

I put him on herbs, and this is his third acupuncture treatment today. He reported that after the first 2 treatments, he is feeling a little lighter on his feet already!

Pretty quick results considering it has been well over a year of very badly swollen ankles. The swelling was so bad that it was painful and would keep him up at night.

Exciting to see results already!
