When the vein walls become weak and/or the blood flow going through the veins becomes restricted in some way the blood can clot or thicken and create spider veins. These veins are purple and usually visible to the eye. They are more common in women than men.
A way to prevent or reverse this condition would be to clean the blood first of all by utilizing a combination of green juice therapy, super herbs & foods, rebounding & lymphatic movement through acupuncture, skin brushing with essential oils & hot/cold therapy.
First we want to target the blood by cleaning it out with juice fasting & powerful herbs. Herbal Blood Formula is a potent blood detoxifier and contains grape seed extract which is known to strengthen the elasticity of the vein walls. The powerful synergy of herbs in this blend assists in cleaning the blood and maintaining a healthy circulatory system. This is key in reversing varicose veins & spider veins.
Juice Feasting can also cleanse and purify the blood and circulatory system. Combining the following together is a powerful choice when juice cleansing:
- Habanero Pepper
- Leafy Greens such as amaranth, dandelion, cilantro & parsley
- Green Tart Apple
Juice Cleansing coupled with drinking Raw Organic Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar will play an important role in cleaning up the vein walls from calcification and blockages in the circulatory network. Apply the Apple Cider Vinegar topically to the veins day and night.
Next we want to look at what super foods & herbs can greatly assist the cleansing and healing process.
Gotu Kola is powerful tonic herb used in the treatment of varicose veins. It seems to decrease blood pressure in the vein walls and assists with lessening inflammation. It is a powerful brain tonic as well and has been said to be great for memory, meditation and longevity.
Next we want to take a look at Pine Bark Extract or Pycnogenol. This also strengthens the walls of the veins which is crucial in keeping them healthy and thriving. Look for a high quality source of Pine Bark without any fillers or excipients. Quality versus Quantity is key.
The other two herbs that work synergistically together are the Chinese herbs Ginseng & Astragalus. In women it is common to see a leaking of the chi energy of the body and there for the blood sinks into the legs so to speak. In order to gain upright chi and better blood circulation this powerful herbal blend can do wonders. It must be taken consistently and over a 3 month period to see real results.
Lymphatic movement through rebounding will naturally helps to strengthen the vein walls. A good rule of thumb would be to rebound 15-20 minutes per day or on a more therapeutic level you might try rebounding 20 minutes 3 times per day to dissolve calcification, tumors or cysts.
Skin brushing with high quality oils that target vein healing is a great part of this protocol. You might try oils like cypress, germanium and juniper berry for alleviating fluid retention, lymphatic flow and strengthening connective tissue. Simply place a small amount of these oils in the palm of your hand and take your skin brush and coat the brush with the oil. Begin skin brushing. Please see my post on skin brushing for more assistance. Clean your skin brush once a week with hot water and castille soap. Dry in the sun.
Last but certainly not least hot/cold therapy will strengthen the lymph system and vein walls. Do this for 10 minutes a day if you can alternating b/t super hot and then cold water. It is invigorating and has youthful effects on the skin.
**** My latest findings tell me that Bone Broth is an incredible way to reverse cellulite. Cellulite is simply lack of collagen, it is not just on people who are considered over weight, many thin people have it too. So Grass Fed Bone Broth can help restore collagen levels, also check out Dave Asprey’s Bullet Proof Exec site for a product called “Upgraded Collagen”.
