Edema is a symptom of a bigger problem. The problem might be oxygen levels in your blood due to the higher altitude. I would suggest possibly taking a good multivitimin with iron. Iron increase red blood cells, which is very helpful at high altitudes because more red blood cells are needed to transport oxygen to the cells (and remove toxins which could be the source of your swelling problem). Also, you might look into pharmeceutical grade hydrogen peroxide - 35% I think, (NOT the over the counter drugstore stuff!!!!). It does a great job of oxygenating the body and can boost cellular oxygen levels considerably. It is also a very good cancer preventative. Also, upping your Vitamin C level to as high as two grams per day can help with oxygen intake. There are also products in health food stores which you can put into regular water that increases the oxygen levels.busybee870 said:ok, i never go to the doctor unless im in unbearable pain. since ive been living in the mountains i havent really been sick. here lately im tired alot, short of breath and my hands and feet swell up. any ideas? what herbal diuretics do you know of?

It works good!busybee870 said:ok, i never go to the doctor unless im in unbearable pain. since ive been living in the mountains i havent really been sick. here lately im tired alot, short of breath and my hands and feet swell up. any ideas? what herbal diuretics do you know of?
