Drainage: How the body loses water retention

Dehydration of the body: what to watch out for

The goal of drainage is to flush out excess water in the tissue. If the body does not manage to regulate itself, dehydration can help.

If the water retention is due to health reasons, the body should never be dehydrated without prior consultation with a doctor, as important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron are flushed out of the body during dehydration. While a healthy person can compensate for this deficiency, it is much more difficult for a sick body to regulate it. Schüssler salts, for example, can help to build up the mineral content in the body.

In the case of effective dehydration, however, the right diet plays a major role and can be supported by it. Water-containing and detoxifying foods and a lot of water are therefore on the main program during the dehydration phase. Sufficient exercise should also be part of the agenda. Whether in the form of a long walk, the morning sun salutation or a fitness workout, physical activity is essential for healthy drainage. However, since the diet is restricted during the time, each body has a different amount of energy. So it is up to you how much you can do during this time. Of course, it is advisable to avoid alcohol, caffeine, sugar and table salt during dehydration.
