Magnesium for Varicose Veins?

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 12/19/2011

Hi Ted, I became aware that I have Varicose Veins a month back. This is more appearing on the right leg and with a little bit on the left leg. I have started on Inclined Bed immediately. I did not find much improvement with the use of IBT on the aspect of varicose Vein, however, I do not know if this is benefiting otherwise.

You indicated use of Magnesium Supplement in Varicose Vein Remedies. It was mentioned that use of Magnesium supplement 500 mg helps relax heart muscles and enables normal circulation. I wish to know whether this will also help to restore Varicose vein to normal state.

I am regularly using ACV 1tsp + 1/4 tsp Baking Soda + 1/2 tsp honey in 8 Oz warm water two times a day and I plan to use Magnesium Supplement recommended by you. Now this is to request you to advise me on any other remedies to restore my veins to normalcy.

Looking forward to your valuable response.

This is a common occurrence in my clients and the remedy I use is my own, it is bromelain 10% in glycine 90%, I am doubtful they have that commercially. However there are ways around it in finding the appropriate supplements. But you have to understand why they happen. It is caused by inability for the body's enzymes to break down the fibrin. So you can use a powerful enzyme such as bromelain or other digestive enzymes, taken on an empty stomach, several times a day. It will take time, about 2-6 months depending on the strength of the dose. Mine takes around 3 months taken at 1/3 teaspoon 3 times a day. The other that was popular in the 60s was the use of vitamin E around 200 iu should be safe. The vitamin K is somehow involved in this process and is taken at 1 a day, on a 100 mcg dose.

The cause of inability of enzymes to break down comes from several things, overeating, insufficient enzymes, and deficiencies (vitamin K, lysine, vitamin C) and some changes such as menopause, obesity, phlebitis, dermatitis, and others. If for example you are smoking that increases the varicose veins as the vitamin C is insufficient. In Thailand we used centella asiatica as the common remedy against varicose veins and bruises too. I have found EDTA taken everyday helps, as it is anti clot, but also a simple baking soda 1/4 tsp after meals at least 2 times a day mixed in a cup of water. The remedy is slightly weak as I purposefully make it weak so you can adjust up the dose if need to, as it will help the circulation, and hence less fibrin.

This has reference to Ted's note on 23 Dec. 2011.

Is it advisable to use Bromelain 500mg 2400 GDU/mg ( in capsule form) alone?

Is combination of Bromelain with Glycine essential for the supplement to be effective?

Is ETDA recommended to use simultaneously with Bromelain or Bromelain Glycine combination?

Is Baking Soda 1/4 tsp mixed in a cup of water effective for blood circulation and anti-clot

I request Ted's advise in order to commence treatment for Varicose Veins?
