Your strategies to avoid or minimized varicose veins are varied and some may be more beneficial to you than another person, depending on your risk factors. They include:

 Nutrition
AVOID or REDUCE  WHY ACTION
Refined/processed foods
  • Starves your veins of essential nutrients.
  • Increases the toxic load of your blood by the presence of artificial ingredients (colouring, preservatives, synthetic components).
  • Eat fresh, wholesome foods.
  • Add bitter vegetables and salads such as artichokes, chicory and endives.
  • Increase your intake of fibre using a flaxseed-based fibre supplement such as Linoforce.
Salt
  • Increases water retention, causing heaviness and pain in your legs.
  • Consider Herbamare, an aromatic sea salt made with fresh organic plants.
  • To enhance your recipes, use lemon juice
  • Drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day.
Tendency towards constipation
  • Develops haemorrhoids and increases your risk of reabsorbing toxins from the bowel.
  • Haemorrhoids may be an indication of a susceptibility to varicose veins.
  • Drink more than 2 litres of water per day.
  • Switch to a diet rich in fibre.

 

Lifestyle
  • The body is built for movement. In this particular case, exercise of the leg muscles assist the flow of venous blood back to the heart and prevents blood pooling.
  • Walking and going up and down stairs are most beneficial. If you suffer from tired legs, raise them from time to time to help move the blood to the heart.
  • Weight is sometimes a contributing factor. Staying fit, exercise and proper nutrition are paramount. Thyroid Support Kelpasan and Molkosan can also help.
  • Swimming and treading water in particular will activate the muscle-vein pump.
  • Do not cross your legs when sitting down and avoid clothes that are too tight or constrict your waist, groin or legs.
  • If you smoke or drink too much alcohol, you are polluting your blood. If your blood becomes like sludge, it is more difficult to move it – especially against gravity.
  • Avoid excessive heat and too many hot baths.
  • Massaging the legs gently in the direction of the venous flow (i.e. towards the heart).
  • Using essential oils such as Aromaforce Rosemary and Peppermint to stimulate foot circulation and reduce swollen feet.
Consider detoxifying your body:

With vegetable and fruit fasts using Biotta juices.

Boldocynara is also an excellent and safe herb complex that can be used long-term to cleanse and support your liver in its detoxification process.
