Mild symptoms of imbalance include swelling, discomfort, and weight gain. Edema can occur anywhere, and the severity of symptoms depends on the fluid:
Blood Vessels: inflammation elevates blood pressure, plasma leaks into tissues.
Extremities: pooled plasma causes puffy hands, feet, arms, or legs, the skin stretches.
Heart: Weak hearts allow blood plasma to leak into the lungs, abdomen swells.
Joints: Acid and inflammation cause pain and prevent synovial fluids from flowing.
Kidney: Inflammation of tubules (nephrons) elevates sodium, fluid accumulates.
Liver: Scarring (called cirrhosis) causes fluid to accumulate in the abdomen and legs.
Lungs: Fluids cause difficulty breathing and pain (pulmonary edema is deadly).
Lymph: Requires movement to pump waste and nutrients, lymph can stagnate.
Veins: Structural damage reduces blood flow and causes plasma pooling in the legs.
Causes & Complications
Fluid regulation has natural variations:
Pregnancy: The body retains water and sodium so there is enough for the baby.
Menstruation: Estrogen induces retention, causing breast tenderness.
Temperature: When it’s hot we sweat more to keep the body cool.
It’s also disrupted by lifestyle choices:
Dehydration: Urine output, and blood pressure, reduce when you don’t drink
Diet: Non-natural foods, high in sodium and toxins, impair fluid regulation.
Disruption: Endocrine toxins, from plastics, mimic estrogen causing retention.
Inflammation: Damaged cells exude fluids and mucus to help themselves heal.
Inactivity: Sedentary lifestyles create stagnation, muscle movement pumps fluids.
Malnutrition: Lack of nutrients causes structures to deteriorate, like rusty pipes.
Medication: Often drugs disrupt the fluid balance, addressing symptoms, not the system.
Although early symptoms are mild if left untreated complications can develop. Prolonged edema results in increasingly painful swelling, difficulty walking, stiffness, stretched itchy skin, circulatory issues, and ulcers.
