Varicose veins are weak blue colorations, which appear mostly in the legs, and which are mainly due to a disorder of blood circulation. Begin to develop normally due to a diet too high in starches, concentrated sugars and the excess consumption of processed food products that cause an impurity in the blood. When this type of diet is in addition to a more sedentary activity, especially the veins begin to suffer. When vascular problems are not addressed in time and begin to worsen, the varicose veins usually begin to be accompanied by pain, fatigue and weakness in the legs (especially when long standing or walking for long periods).
Function of veins is to return blood to the heart. The valves in the legs prevents the blood is returned by the gravity effect of preventing inflammation in the leg and dilatation of the varicose veins. When these valves weaken or do not work properly, they lose this ability, thus the blood is circulating properly and with adequate strength of the lower body toward the top, the veins are procrastinating progressively with time to become visible and tangible, and the consequences that result are not only aesthetic but is a problem that affects health by promoting the development of ulcers, infections and other serious problems.
Varicose veins, as many of the central problems of many diseases, have their root in the food and the emotional factor. Our entire body is built based on minerals, vitamins and proteins. At the time this begins to happen to miss, the body will suffer a series of imbalances that a little bit will weak or miss pace and build up in that part of the body less strong or healthy, as if the body in some way to protect healthy parts of the body and accentuate the not very strong (in this case the veins) to somehow be more weakness in this area and the body ads more quickly to pay attention to it.
It is very important that if you suffer from varicose veins, you take into account the factor of food as a fundamental principle. To combat the varicose veins is very important to start avoiding their causes (the maximum possible reduction products in the diet above), then consume vitamins and detoxify the body with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. To detoxify the body is important, if we really want to see results, spend at least two weeks of your life eating only the food and vegetable juices and fruit and then we suggest you remove any food, especially do not let any kind of sausage, bread and refined sugar and saturated fat (fried goods). The detox diet will cleanse your whole body and will begin a process of strengthening your veins. The diet is that every morning you take half a liter of citric juice (either pineapple, lemon, mandarin, guava, kiwi, etc) combined with two tablespoons of oatmeal. You must not eat anything until lunch, when only a soup and a salad rich in fresh vegetables to choose from. If you are going to follow this diet is necessary to buy many apples, then at night eat at least two, with three nuts. If you continue this for two weeks, the third can begin to include in your diet whole grain breads, cheese and fresh olives and oil. It is important that after the second week, every evening after dinner, you take a pint of carrot juice with spinach, celery, parsley and a little beet. You can replace the beets by seaweed, alfalfa sprouts or 2 tablespoons of brewer's yeast in the week. This juice will begin to dramatically revitalize all your systems and your veins. It is important that in this afternoon juice you add one of the following herbs which are very effective in eliminating this condition:

The emotional factor in varicose veins
The blood is associated with the satisfaction and joy in life. When this is in a problem, does not run properly or becomes stagnant, it is because there is some cause in our life that is keeping us really enjoy or experience life with satisfaction. When there is something that really disappointed us in life and did not find how to solve it then the message to body is "I do not want to move," or "weakly circle, without desire, without effort" When we feel we do a lot of effort and not obtain what is desired, then the message for body is "It is costing me to move on”. The body speaks exactly what you feel deeply. Listen. If you honestly look within yourself, you may find what is disappointing you, and can try a new movement.
