Natural treatment to prevent varicose veins

1- Improve circulation:

The cause of varicose veins has to do mainly with the liver, since it is the body that regulates our circulation and purifies our blood of toxins. For this reason we have to keep in mind that a full treatment to fight varicose veins should start with a good diet, based on the following foods:

Fruits and vegetables: highlight the lemon, grapefruit, artichokes or chicory.
Vegetables: cooked with cumin, fennel or kombu seaweed
Whole grain cereal: especially the rice, millet, quinoa or buckwheat
Egg, preferably organic
White meat
Nuts and dried fruits raw or toasted, but not fried nor salting
Seeds: raw or germinated
First cold-pressed oils: from Sesame, olive, sunflower, flax, wheat germ, etc.
Vegetable drinks, oat, rice or almond
Spices such as pepper and turmeric
On the other hand, we will avoid or limit the consumption of these foods:

Red meat and sausage
Milk and dairy products
Fried and pre-cooked food
Alcoholic beverages

2- Regular bowel:

The intestine is another organ which directly influences the movement of the body since being in our belly, the central part of our body, if it is malfunctioning, originates a lock which does not allow a correct circulation throughout the body.
Therefore we have to naturally treat our intestines, especially if we suffer constipation, tendency to diarrhea or irritable bowel, which are the most common problems.

3- Circulatory infusions:

We must guard from inside and from outside, and for this reason we recommend taking every day teas that help improve blood circulation. We can choose, for example, the following medicinal plants:

A plant to improve the function of the liver: boldo, tooth of lion or thistle (caution in patients with significant hepatic problems).
Rosemary or gotu Kola to improve circulatory function of limbs (Rosemary not will take it if you suffer from hypertension).
A plant to improve the micro circulation: ginkgo biloba.
Flax seeds to regulate bowel function.
We can add to this infusion the juice of half a lemon and a little stevia or honey to sweeten.

4- Cold water:

Cold water is the more immediate for circulation problems relief, provided we apply it in the right way.
In a moment in which we have no cold, we get wet legs with cold water. We can do it in the shower, the bath, a swimming pool, in the sea, with a hose, etc.
We'll keep a few minutes, if possible while we are on the move.
Then we dry our legs to make them warm and get the contrast of temperatures, which is actually the most healing.
If we have not yet got warm we will make any exercise or massage.

5- Moisturizer and massage:

To further improve the blood circulation in our legs we massage them at least once a day with a specific product, we always recommend to be natural, with no harmful ingredients for our health.
We can opt for a gel or cream, or else prepare our own oil by mixing a base of vegetable almond oil with a few drops of any of the following essential oils:

Witch Hazel
We massage the legs making circles, always heading upwards, towards the heart. Finally with the clenched fist we will make parent moves.

6- Inverted posture:

Every night before going to sleep we bust on the ground, in bed or on a couch and we will put the legs in high, possibly with the buttocks touching the wall and completely vertical legs, creating a right angle with the body.
We will remain in this position between 15 and 30 minutes, unless fall asleep us legs before.
This simple exercise, which is similar to some other body therapies, and yoga postures is very effective and relaxing if we practice it every day.
