Water retention is normally caused because of malfunctioning of urinatory system. At times urine or kidney infection is equally responsible . Best way to treat this ailment is to walk regularly. In the beginning one may have problem in walking. Do not get disheartened and do not overstretch. Walk as much one can easily and without overburdening the body or stretching it . After some time the body gets tuned to this exercise and you will find that two months of continuous walk say forty to forty five minutes will change your life.

You should eat food containing vitamins A and C. Drink lemon juice mixed with grapefruit juice; this works as a diuretic. One should chew food thoroughly and eat probiotic curd.

Maintain a low salt diet. You could try some Diuretics (water pills) from the doctor/pharmacist. In fact see a doctor anyway to check whether or not there is a medical cause for the water retention.

Water retention is a symptom of a disease which needs to be attended to. Once this is done your water retention problem will be taken care of. Malfunctioning of kidneys/liver are some of the causes.
