Causes of fluid retention or oedema

Oedema or fluid retention can occur in the body due to:

  • stagnation - standing or sitting for long periods
  • hot conditions - hot weather or other high heat environments such as a sauna
  • pregnancy - extra fluid is often retained during pregnancy
  • menstrual cycle due - women's bodies sometimes retain fluid prior to their menstrual period
  • diet - excess salt or deficiencies in vitamins or minerals
  • drugs - some medications for certain conditions can cause oedema
  • ill health - diseases of the heart, kidney or lungs, thyroid problems, arthritis, lymph issues

Acupuncture for fluid retention

Acupuncture can assist with the reduction of fluid retention by encouraging blood flow and the movement of fluid through the body. This further helps to reduce joint inflammation and swelling of limbs.
