The True Cause of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are unsightly and often times painful. If you go to a medical vein specialist they will tell you that varicose veins are usually hereditary and that they cannot be prevented and only solved through the use of medical procedures.

The truth is that there is a physical cause other than genetics. The beauty of that news is that it puts you back in control of your health. Let’s take a look at why veins become varicose and how to help your body combat that possibility and potentially heal if you already have them.

The real cause?

Chronic dehydration.

When a person develops varicose veins or even spider veins it is because their blood has become thicker than it should be due to lack of water content, chronically, over time. It can take years to see the full effect.

Contributing to this is the ongoing pattern of high-fat eating. If someone were to consume three high-fat meals per day for several years, it can thicken the blood. This coagulation isn’t easy on the circulatory system. The body does its best to adjust but due to the viscus nature of this now thickened blood flowing through it moves more slowly through veins and arteries. This causes problems.

Water naturally expands the veins. This new thicker blood leads to more narrow arteries. Because of this your heart now has to pump harder and the blood is not only less water based but also more toxic as it is less able to be easily filtered. This slowed movement of the blood also puts the brain on alert.

The brain will see the slow down and try and increase the flow back to normal. Certain enzymes, proteins, and hormones start new cell production to try and stretch back out the pathways and even push the body to try and grow new ones, in a way mutating your existing blood vessels.

That is when you will visually start to see spider veins and eventually varicose veins. It is your body trying to compensate for the lack of water in the body. They are meant as a warning sign. If more water isn’t added in daily to rehydrate the body, more will form.

The solution

Drink more water. 1 gallon a day is standard. This helps with rehydration but in order to try and heal the toxic levels caused by chronic dehydration a dietary change is needed, often working with a qualified nutritionist can be incredibly helpful. A liver detox is needed to help clear the blood as well. When these steps are taken it can halt the formation of new vein issues and even heal up already exiting visible pathways.
