Varicose veins and telangiectasia (spider veins) are the visible signs of an underlying venous insufficiency problem, where venous blood escapes from the normal flow of blood into an already congested leg. 

Spider Veins are a mild form of venous insufficiency, which are cosmetically unappealing, but generally not dangerous or health-threatening.

Varicose Veins are a more serious form of venous insufficiency that can accompany other symptoms, including pain, soreness, burning, aching, throbbing, cramping, muscle fatigue, and restless legs. Over time, chronic venous insufficiency can lead to skin and soft tissue breakdown.

Venous insufficiency is caused by valves in the veins that have broken down.  These valves prevent blood flow back to the arteries.   If their integrity is compromised, blood can accumulate and collect.  This condition is aggravated in people who are sedentary or obese and likewise aggravated by hormonal imbalances found in pregnancy or with the use of HRT and chemical birth control.


There are several extra steps you can take for the treatment of spider veins and varicose veins. 

Nutrition:  Several changes in diet can help with the appearance of spider and varicose veins.  There are several herbs, listed below, that will keep blood thin and flowing smoothly.  Also, consider the nutrients required to keep veins and capillaries strong.  Increasing your intake of monounsaturated and saturated fats can help.  All cells replace themselves on a regular basis, including the cells in your circulatory system.  A diet heavy in polyunsaturated fats is inadequate for tissue repair and can often exacerbate the problem with an increase of free radicals.  Your body requires cholesterol and saturated fats for the building of strong cell walls.  If you have been eating mostly seed oils, your body is not getting the right kind of fats.  Consider switching to olive oil for salad dressings and coconut oil and butter for cooking.  Also, the dietary enzyme bromelain can improve overall circulation by reducing the build-up of fibrin along the walls of the blood vessels.  It is very inexpensive and good for circulation disorders of all kinds.

Cleansing:  When cleaning your skin, use your washcloth or loofah to massage the area around the broken veins first in a circular motion and then in a brushing motion upwards towards the bowels.  This will improve circulation.
