[YEA] My first pregnancy is when I first noticed visible veins in my legs. During my second pregnancy I drank a combination of nettle and raspberry leaf tea and I actually ended up with better leg veins than I started with. I would definitely recommend nettle leaf tea for anyone who is pregnant or has varicose veins.
Just thought I'd let u know of something I'd heard of to assist varicose and spider veins : stinging nettle tea. I'm pretty sure it's not an overnight cure, like most worthwhile cures. It is full of vitamins (A, C, E, B's and K) with important minerals (magnesium, zinc, many more) and of course, other agents, which a scientist could explain, and even more that, apparently, they can't yet! I have started taking it, just one cup A day. In about a week or so I will increase it to two cups per day. I have some varicose veins, which are sometimes very noticeable, and sometimes not. I also have spider veins. I'm also 15 weeks pregnant. I am taking Ted's lemon juice and baking soda remedy. I love it. Haven't noticed a difference in veins though. Maybe that's because of my pregnancy.
Anyway, I will let you know, in awhile how I am going with the nettle tea. Has anybody else had success with this???
|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||100%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] Varicose veins unfortunately run through our family. My grandmother suffered from them, as does my mum and when I was in my early 30's, I was diagnosed with it as well. I have had Phlebitis and my right leg has been operated on. My veins aren't visible on the outside; my legs look smooth, but upon touch it feels as if there are cables inside my calves.
Most annoying is the feeling of 'heavy legs'. On warm days, my ankles swell up despite the support hoses I wear every day.
But am seeing great results using essential oil of Cypress with Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) as carrier.
I make a small amount of salve which I apply twice a day, or more often when it's warm weather or when I expect to do a lot of standing and walking. The reason I make a small amount is I like it to be fresh.
The recipe is simple, two tablespoons of VCO; 15 drops of Oil of Cypress. Personally, I started with 7 drops to test for allergic reactions, none came, and the dosage of Cypress could be increased. Store in a glass jar, essential oils eat away at plastic. Keep in a cool place.
Apply twice a day on feet and calves, even thighs if you want or need. Massage gently and only stroke upwards. Works great to reduce fluid retention around the ankles, and my legs don't feel as "heavy".
Hope this helps!
[YEA] I have been oil pulling for about 5 weeks now. First thing I noticed was my sweet tooth completely gone, needless to say with that came weight loss. Also it is true that your ailments first worsen before getting better. My biggest thing was leg pain from my varicose veins. When I first started OP it hurt for about a week since then I haven't had any pain. Thank you for all your great help.
