Varicose Veins

Foods to Eat:
Large quantities of dark red berries, such as cherries, blackberries, black currants, and grapes - they contain plant compounds that restore the veins and capillaries.

Garlic, onions, cayenne pepper, and bromelain (an enzyme found in fresh pineapple and also available in supplement form) which help to break down fibrin and keep the blood thinned and moving.

1,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin C and at least 1,000 mg of bioflavonoids daily.

Make an essential oil blend of 5 drops of cypress, 2 drops of lemon, 3 drops of yarrow, 3 drops of frankincense, and 2 drops of rosemary. Place fifteen drops of the essential oil blend into one ounce of calendula or St. Johns wort oil. Massage this combination gently onto varicose veins two to three times a day.
