Varicose veins are weakened veins that appear with a blue color especially in the legs, thighs, etc., and which are mainly due to a disorder of blood circulation. Hemorrhoids, on the other hand, also due to sick and swollen veins in the rectum or anus that can be internal (veins inside the rectum) which often bleed easily on exertion, may also be prolapsed (hang from the rectum and can return to it) and external hemorrhoids (which are outside the anus), which cause itching, pain and bleed.
Both conditions are mainly due to very poor diet, high in refined flour, excess white sugar products, refined, fatty food, starch, dehydrated products, processed food and fried, all of them cause an excessive buildup of toxins and bad fats which not only obstruct and undermine the veins, but can cause constipation, overweight, and a number of impurities in the blood wearing veins, making them brittle and unhealthy, causing severe vascular and circulation problems.
If the diet remains inadequate, the problem will tend to deteriorate, and more frequently varicose veins will appear and hemorrhoids will become increasingly more painful and large.

Food should be always accompanied with a glass of fresh vegetable juice (freshly made) which includes carrot, alfalfa, celery and sprouts 5 times a week at least.
