For fast relief for constant and irritating fluid retention, I use the remedy Phytolacca in my clinic. This remedy is great for treating a sluggish lymphatic system, swollen glands, and excessive fluid. This remedy also relieves wandering pains, cracked nipples from breastfeeding, tonsillitis and sinusitis. I use this remedy a lot for those who have congestive heart failure, diabetes, kidney problems, and who are overweight.
I also use this remedy to prevent and treat tonsillitis and glandular fever so it is a common remedy that I use for teenagers and college students who get run down from late nights and little sleep.
My best results this month with this remedy was with a patient who had pain in her face and mouth that felt like an electric shock. This remedy has done wonders for her demeanor as well as diminished her reliance on her pain medications from her neuralgic pain.
