In today’s article you will learn about a simple and natural plan to help you deal with retained liquids that make you feel bloated and cumbersome. Learn how to eliminate excess water from the body in 30 days by following few simple tips regarding your diet and making the natural supplements your ally.
One of the foods that will bring the greatest benefits in those 30 days is onions. It is a therapeutic food used since ancient times for its diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties. Onions stimulate the process of restoring the function and health of the kidney and have a “gentle” effect on the body and all that with no side effects.
It is advisable for a month to eat onion soup. In the beginning, prepare a large amount in order not to make it every day.
Another major benefit of onion soup is that you can season it with a little sea salt, which will give it a better taste. Obtain sea salt from a health store or the supermarket. This salt doesn’t contain only sodium, but also assist the process of removing excess fluid from the body. Its consumption is recommended as an alternative to the standard table salt, which is present in the recipes.
• 4 cups water
• 3 large onions
• 1 teaspoon sea salt
Cut the onion and boil it in salty water for at least 1/2 hour. Strain and save the liquid. You can flavor your soup with a little lemon juice.
