hey guys, dr. axe here, doctor of naturalmedicine and founder of draxe.com. in this video i'm going to share with you the sevenways to get rid of varicose veins fast. i'm telling you, these diet tips, these supplements,they are very effective at getting rid of varicose veins and also beneficial for spiderveins as well. here's what we've got to know about varicoseveins. it's typically caused by weak structure of the connective tissue and circulatory tissue.we've got to really work to strengthen that up as well as increase circulation. thoseare the key things we need to do in order to get rid of varicose veins. step number one is use essential oils, especiallycyprus topically. cyprus essential oil helps
increase circulation of the area. what i recommendis doing a mix of cyprus oil with witch hazel daily, typically about five drops each. you'regoing to rub it on the area three times a day. again, essential oils such as cyprusoil are very effective with varicose veins. the next thing you're going to do, step numbertwo, is exercise. that's right. any type of exercise is beneficial, but especially weighttraining or burst training on a regular basis. we know that exercise improves circulation.it also helps enhance and strengthen cell structure. i don't have necessarily this oneperfect type of exercise. just get out and exercise 20 to 30 minutes every single dayor at least five days a week. walking is good and that can be somewhat beneficial,but ideally you're going to be working up
a little bit of a sweat whether that's weighttraining or burst training or getting in the gym and doing a spin class. getting out thereand exercising is another great way to help you get rid of varicose veins. the third step is wearing compression socks.you can do this especially while exercising. getting compression socks especially if youhave them let's say on areas such as your calves and leg muscles, we know that compressioncan help. the next thing here, and this is probablyone of the most effective things you can do in terms of diet, is consume more antioxidantrich foods, especially bilberries. you can get bilberry in a supplement form. i'd recommendtaking about 500 to 1000 milligrams of bilberry
extract daily. we know bilberry is very effectiveas well as horse chestnut, another one, at actually supporting that area. bilberry andhorse chestnut. but other berries are great as well such asblueberries contain resveratrol and bioflavonoids which really help in healing those areas andstrengthening the connective tissues. again, bilberry is probably the number one antioxidantfood though when it comes to helping heal varicose veins. the next thing you want to do is consume adiet rich in collagen. that's a diet rich in bone broth. we know collagen helps supportconnective tissue. if you think about this, as you start to age and get wrinkles, thebiggest reason you start to get wrinkles is
because your body stops producing as muchof its own collagen and it doesn't have enough collagen. that's why you start to wrinkle.if you get more collagen, it's going to help tighten things up. it's a similar thing. collagen helps with connective tissue structureand tightening and firming things up. it's why collagen and bone broth are so great forgetting rid of wrinkles, getting rid of cellulite, and also varicose veins. you want to startdoing a bone broth diet and drinking a glass of bone broth about 8 to 12 ounces 2 to 3times daily. do bone broth soups. you can also take a bone broth protein powder or acollagen protein powder. doing these things on a regular basis is really so beneficialwhen it comes to supporting healthy connective
tissue. last but not least, another thing you canlook at doing is something called prolotherapy or stem cell therapy. they actually removeyour body's own stem cells from your own hip and then reinject it to an area. you can alsodo something called prp. it's platelet rich plasma or prolotherapy in an area. this helpsin regenerating and healing damaged tissues in the area. you can look up a stem cell or a prp doc inyour area. just look up prp in nashville or orlando or los angeles or wherever you liveand you can find somebody. specifically, you might look for somebody that does prp. that'splatelet rich plasma. they remove your blood.
they actually inject your own platelets backinto the area which helps the area heal. it's another cutting edge thing most people haven'theard of. if you have more severe spider veins or varicose veins, it's actually a very effectivetreatment for that in that area as well. one other thing here. i mentioned earlierwith the essential oil cyprus that witch hazel is also very effective. mixing witch hazelwith cyprus, using that topically, it's a very effective treatment. if you want to get the best overall results,use all of these things i've talked about when it comes to getting rid of varicose veins.if you want to learn more about how to get rid of varicose veins, visit my website draxe.com.that's draxe.com. also, if you want to learn
