Mari: Since a lot of years I have large edema around ankles. When the time is warm they enlarge. My doctor said, that this is liquid lymph and edema does not heal. Thank you!
Walter Last: This is probably due to weakness of the blood vessels. Use nutrients to strengthen connective tissue, all vitamins and minerals, especially zinc, copper, calcium and magnesium, glucosamine, L-lysine, eat legumes (e.g. lentils) instead of grains, avoid sweetened food, lots of vegetables, broth of chicken bones and fish heads.
