How to get rid of varicose and spider veins naturally

🌞🌺🌞 Summer is just around the corner, and some of us struggle with how the beauty of our curly and swollen varicose veins or blue spider veins. Especially annoying when you want to put shorts or a summer dress on… argh the unsightliness and that plain discomfort,  of to mention pain!

I know exactly that feeling because I have struggled with varicose veins since I had my first child, 11 years ago.  Or something I signed up for, but unfortunately pregnancy induced varicose veins are quite common. Thankfully, there are some natural remedies which women have passed down from generation to generation and used with success for centuries. Below are the remedies which I have been using for the past week with exceptional results! I am surprisingly impressed since I have always used compression stockings while at work, and all sorts of topical creams with very minimal results, and now with only a week of daily use of the below supplements and essential oils (no compression stockings), I have seen noticeable improvement 🤗 Varicose vein cream with essential oils in another post!

I was literally ready to make an appointment to have the veins surgically removed, but decided to do some last minute research on remedies for getting rid of these ugly varicose and spider veins at home. After reading about the supplements and all of the positive comments from people who have used them, I decided to give them a try! I only used the supplements for a week as I said, but I am positive that I will see even more remarkable results with long-term use. I am on my feet a lot, and not just at work! You know.. being a mom, running after kids, keeping my home in order and cooking meals for my tribe does keep me on my feet, literally, all day long.

I use a combination of both Butcher’s Broom supplement and Horse Chestnut for more effective results.

These are both proven to help relieve the swelling of the varicose veins, to strengthen veins and improve their elasticity, and to decrease swelling in your lower extremities. Haemorrhoids are a form of varicose veins but in the bowels, so you will find relief as well if you suffer from haemorrhoids.

The 2 supplements and topical gel that I use right now:

1. VEINsmart

This is a wonderful supplement which has not gained much popularity online as I have not seen many reviews. But I personally am very pleasantly surprised by the results after 1 week of use, along with the next 2 products.

VEINsmart is formulated with horse chestnut extract, butcher’s broom, diosmin and hesperidin, which work together to support vein health and reduce varicose veins, eliminate swelling and the feeling of heaviness in the legs, and reduce chronic venous insufficiency. You can read more about this product here.

2. Venaforce Topical Gel   

A Vogel Venaforce™ Description
Soothing Horse Chestnut Leg Gel. Swiss Product.

Venaforce Gel, made with fresh Horse Chestnut Seeds (standardized to 2% Aescin), covers and helps improve the appearance of broken capillaries, varicose veins and spider veins. This modern gel is designed to complement Venaforce tablets. Venaforce tablets help maintain the healthy integrity of the veins of the legs, promoting normal circulation, which supports the well being of the legs (so legs feel less tired, less heavy). Venaforce Gel and tablets are the result of years of research.

I apply the gel on my leg after shower, when the pores are open and ready to absorb all of the nutrients! It absorbs quickly and is not greasy.  I also apply at bedtime.

3. Venaforce Tablets/Tincture 

Compared to the tablet, the tincture (also known as drops, which I use as well) has the advantage of being more quickly absorbed and of allowing a fine-tuning of the dosage according to each person. I have to warn you though that it tastes awful, even if diluted in water (which is how you are supposed to take). But I find that if I use really cold water and take it when I am thirsty, it is easier to swallow. Then after a few days, you get used to the taste. I could not find the gel online, so I bought mine at the local food store. There probably are online drugstores or health food stores that you can find that may sell and deliver this product, or you could check your local health food store, or request it from the store manager for ordering.

Also make sure you drink plenty of water, at least 2 liters daily. Dehydration can cause the tissues to hold onto excessive amounts of fluids which puts extra pressure on the affected veins.

You can find the supplements at any local health food store, or on Amazon.

I will keep you posted with how my legs look after longer use of these supplements and gel! Until then, enjoy the sunshine 🌞🌺🌞
