Patient Comments: Varicose Veins - Treatments

What treatments have been effective in treating or preventing varicose veins?

Comment from: CD, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 02

I cut out all sugar and started eating lots of fruits and veggies. I also started taking vitamins and minerals, including B with high C, magnesium oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin D3, fish oil, CoQ 10, and a multivitamin. I cut out all processed foods, and in just a matter of days my veins improved – they appeared to no longer bulge or ache. In addition, my feet are no longer swollen and purple. I hope to continue to see improvement.
