      Here is a website on ascites: http://howshealth.com/ascites/ . It recommends a low-salt diet. It also states that herbal diuretics like dandelion, or Taraxacum officinale, can help in eliminating excess fluids and also provide potassium which balances the presence or intake of excess sodium. Foods rich in potassium include mackerel, cantaloupe, and low-fat yogurt and baked potatoes.

      I drink hot dandelion tea sometimes because its supposed to be good for your liver and gall bladder. It doesn't taste that great so I combine it with peppermint tea.
