Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural medicine and founder of draxe.com. In this video I’m going to share with you the seven ways 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 spider veins as well. Here’s what we’ve got to know about varicose veins. 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. Those are the key things we need to do in order to get rid of varicose veins.
Step number one is use essential oils, especially cyprus topically. Cyprus essential oil helps increase circulation of the area. What I recommend is doing a mix of cyprus oil with witch hazel daily, typically about five drops each. You’re going to rub it on the area three times a day. Again, essential oils such as cyprus oil are very effective with varicose veins. The next thing you’re going to do, step number two, is exercise. That’s right. Any type of exercise is beneficial, but especially weight training 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 one perfect type of exercise.
Just get out and exercise 20 to 30 minutes every single day or 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 weight training or burst training or getting in the gym and doing a spin class. Getting out there and 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 you have them let’s say on areas such as your calves and leg muscles, we know that compression can help. The next thing here, and this is probably one of the most effective things you can do in terms of diet, is consume more antioxidant rich foods, especially bilberries.
You can get bilberry in a supplement form. I’d recommend taking about 500 to 1000 milligrams of bilberry extract daily. We know bilberry is very effective as well as horse chestnut, another one, at actually supporting that area. Bilberry and horse chestnut. But other berries are great as well such as blueberries contain resveratrol and bioflavonoids which really help in healing those areas and strengthening the connective tissues. Again, bilberry is probably the number one antioxidant food though when it comes to helping heal varicose veins. The next thing you want to do is consume a diet rich in collagen. That’s a diet rich in bone broth. We know collagen helps support connective tissue.
If you think about this, as you start to age and get wrinkles, the biggest reason you start to get wrinkles is because your body stops producing as much of 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 structure and tightening and firming things up. It’s why collagen and bone broth are so great for getting rid of wrinkles, getting rid of cellulite, and also varicose veins. You want to start doing a bone broth diet and drinking a glass of bone broth about 8 to 12 ounces 2 to 3 times daily. Do bone broth soups. You can also take a bone broth protein powder or a collagen protein powder.
Doing these things on a regular basis is really so beneficial when it comes to supporting healthy connective tissue. Last but not least, another thing you can look at doing is something called prolotherapy or stem cell therapy. They actually remove your body’s own stem cells from your own hip and then reinject it to an area. You can also do something called PRP. It’s platelet rich plasma or prolotherapy in an area. This helps in regenerating and healing damaged tissues in the area. You can look up a stem cell or a PRP doc in your area.
Just look up PRP in Nashville or Orlando or Los Angeles or wherever you live and you can find somebody. Specifically, you might look for somebody that does PRP. That’s platelet rich plasma. They remove your blood. They actually inject your own platelets back into the area which helps the area heal. It’s another cutting edge thing most people haven’t heard of. If you have more severe spider veins or varicose veins, it’s actually a very effective treatment for that in that area as well. One other thing here. I mentioned earlier with the essential oil cyprus that witch hazel is also very effective. Mixing witch hazel with cyprus, using that topically, it’s a very effective treatment.
