The trusted Old Remedy

Hi, everyone!  Easter came and went and we are all now back to our usual.  My Easter was good, playing host to my in-laws and cute little niece, Frances but it could have been better had I not have my back pain.  The injury I had (I had a protrusion of disc from my injury during a yoga session a few weeks ago) became worst at the worst time possible, when the house was full with guests and as if that was not enough, the anti-inflammatory medication I was given messed up my system so bad that I was so bloated and put on at least 1.5 kilos of mostly water.  

So, when my guests retuned to Italy, I decided to do something about the water retention problem at hand and turned to the remedy I trust –

The Cranberry Dandelion Water Buster! 


Pure concentrated cranberry juice, no sugar added about 2-3 tablespoon

2 dandelion tea bags

2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

1.5 liter of water

Leave the tea bags in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes.

Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a jug.

Then add the tea mixture (i usually put the bags in as well) in the jug.

Chill if you like.

Drink the mixture throughout the day for a week and the water will go slowly but surely and yes, you will ‘go’ a lot too!


  1. What a great, natural remedy - I hope you're feeling better!

  2. Ooo I love this. Fabulous remedy, love. Thanks so much for sharing. If you get a sec, I'd love if you'd check out my shoot in front of the Father of the Bride house. xo
