Edema/dropsy
 taken from  "Back to Eden" by Jethro Kloss

  .



Causes -- Dropsy is an accumulation of watery fluid in the cellular tissues or in any of the cavities of the body, as the chest or abdomen, and may be due to disease of the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, or peritoneum.  Anything that will cause the blood to become poisoned or the red corpuscles to die may result in dropsy.  In most cases it is caused by a crippled heart or kidneys. Sometimes the liver and gall bladder are so diseased and inflamed that they will not function normally, and a dropsical condition will arise,  causing the abdominal cavity to fill up with fluid.  It may  be that the kidneys are the cause.  In the case of  Bright's disease, when the kidneys are not able to function properly dropsy will result. 

Treatment:  --  Generally a complete change should be made in the diet, leaving off all alcoholic drinks, cocoa, chocolate, tea, coffee, coca-cola, and all other such drinks.  No flesh foods, (fish, meat, chicken, pork).  pies, cakes, or rich pastries should be indulged in. All foods should be eaten as dry as possible, thereby causing the patient to chew his food thoroughly. No fluid should be taken with the meals, but water can be taken one hour after meals.  Do not use any salt.  Fruits or tomatoes should compose a large part of the diet.  One vegetable meal a day (preferably at noon) should compose the diet of all patients.  Never eat fruit and vegetables at the same meal.  Sprouted lentils and sprouted soybeans are very good as well as all the soybean preparations mentioned in this book.("Back to Eden" by Jethro Kloss)  Eat freely of vegetables, as eggplant, young beets, parsley, celery, okra, kale, asparagus, collards, mustard, lettuce, spinach, parsnips, onions, cucumbers, watercress, pumpkin, potatoes, peas, yellow corn, swiss chard, cauliflower, endive, fresh beans, and peas.
     Fresh grapes should be eaten freely in season, and if they cannot be had, the dried ones should be used.  Thoroughly ripe bananas may be eaten often.  Nuts or nut preparations should take the place of meat.  Coconut is also good.  If a patient cannot take the whole coconut, the coconut milk is good.  Whole wheat zwieback should be eaten instead of fresh bread.  Never eat bread made with soda or baking powder. 
     Drink plenty of water and fruit juices to flush the kidneys and bladder.  A hot bath daily (preferably at night) to produce perspiration will help rid the body of impurities. Cold morning baths and the washing of the limbs and abdomen two or three times a day with cold water are also very beneficial.
or  Hanna Kroeger's      Drinking plenty of herb tea of red raspberry or pleurisy root will produce perspiration. If this is in powdered form,  take a half teaspoonful to one cup of boiling water.  Let it steep thirty minutes, and drink; or the powder may be taken in capsules four to six times a day.  An excellent herb combination for this purpose is one-half teaspoonful each of wild yam and black cohosh,  with a pinch of cayenne pepper added, to a cup of water.  Keep the bowels active, so that they move at least three times a day, (see Dr. Christopher's  Lower Bowel, or Quick Colon Cleanse Mover or Spinal Touch's LB Cleanse)    A tea made of  the following may be taken freely, as much as four to six cups a day with benefit:  Wild carrot (blossoms or seeds ground), dandelion root, yarrow, burdock root, Gravel Root, dwarf elder, and broom.  This may  be mixed equal parts, using one teaspoonful to a cup of boiling water, and steeping twenty or thirty minutes.  (Any or all if available)
     Burdock and broom make a good combination.  They are also prepared in the same way.  Dwarf elder is especially good, since it cleanses the kidneys. 
     The following remedy has been known to cure dropsy many times:  Take grapevine root and burn to ashes.  Use one dessert spoonful of this in a glass of water three or four times a day, always drinking plenty of water with it.  the inner bark of the vine is good too, prepared in the same way.
     Frequent bathing in the ocean is very helpful for dropsy. If one cannot do this, take one pound Epsom Salts and one pound table salt and add to to your bath.
     Wild carrot, which grows so abundantly in many of the states of the United States, has been known to cure dropsy, together with the proper diet after leaving off the harmful drinks, foods, and habits. .
