Whether it's curable or not is unknown.  The natural approach is to use herbs that help to strengthen the integrity of the blood vessels.  A good place to start are the horse chestnut combinations from Planetary Formulas, one internal, one external in cream formula.  Nature's Way and other companies also make such a product.  Taking CoQ 10 in addition might help as well.  Good luck.

I had an extremely serious case of varicose veins. On the inner sie of each ankle was a sack of blackish stagnant blood, a horror to look at. The skin was thinning and close to rupturing.

At some point I adding liquid trace minerals to my drinking water, with no purpose in mind other than adding to my general health. I put one tablespoon in each gallon of filtered water. I also added 16 drops of BioSil. All sorts of unexpected benefits resulted from this supplementation, but perhaps most notable was the disappearance of the varicosities. I should point out that this cure took two years. Today I have no trace of varicose veins. My doctor was very surprised as he had never seen this happen. (I think a large part of the cure had to do with BioSil.)

Hello Community,

Herbs for varicose veins include circulatory stimulants, vascular tonics, anti-inflammatories and astringents. These herbs contain chemicals such as alkaloids and flavonoids that may help vein tissue heal and regain elasticity, allowing proper circulation and preventing blood from pooling in your legs. You can use herbs as teas, tinctures, extracts and lotions, but check with a knowledgeable practitioner for instructions about dosage and how long to use these herbs.


Thanks and Regards,
Daquan Gibson

Start by investing in a good pair of compression stockings.

Start exercising. exercises that work the leg muscles, such as squats and cycling, help push blood back up through your leg veins to your heart.
It’ll also help you lose weight, and even a 10- to 20-pound weight loss can make a big difference when it comes to easing the pain of varicose veins.
Vein-strengthening supplements
Here are a few supplements that are worth trying.
Horse chestnut is the best-known natural treatment for varicose veins. It helps prevent swelling and strengthens capillary and vein walls. The usual dose is 300 mg a day. Side effects are pretty rare, but if you start feeling itchy or nauseous, taper back your dose. Nature’s Way has a widely available, quality product.
Grape seed extract also supports the walls of blood vessels. Take 150 to 300 mg in divided doses over the course of a day. I like the Activin product.
Bilberry best known for supporting healthy vision, it can also be useful for varicose veins. It’s similar to grape seed extract. Use 24 to 320 mg a day.
Bromelain, an enzyme from pineapple, can help prevent the hard lumpy skin that develops around varicose veins. Take 500 to 750 mg two or three times a day.
Butcher’s Broom is also another supplement that’s helpful. It works by constricting your blood vessels and improving your overall blood flow. Its anti-inflammatory properties have been used for over two thousand years to relieve the swelling and pain of varicose veins.
Butcher’s Broom, can increase blood pressure.
If none of these measures work for you and you do wind up needing surgery, there’s a new laser technique that’s safe and non-invasive, and it makes varicose veins slowly fade and disappear. It works by sending strong bursts of light onto the vein.

I know this is an old thread but I was very interested in the BioSil working on varicose veins. When you put the 16 drops in your water, did you drink the full gallon throughout the day? The recommended dose is 5 drops, twice a day. The bottle also says to drink immediately...so this is another reason I'm curious. I'm wondering if drinking it slowly through the day might improve absorption rather than only two times a day.

Also, do you think this would work on spider veins, since they're essentially also weakened walls?

I am wondering the same as yayaya750. When you put the 16 drops of BioSil in the water did you drink the gallon throughout the day? The reason why I am asking is because on the bottle of the BioSil it says to drink immediately.

I  only drank water when I was thirsty. That certainly was not one gallon a day. Also when I started using the trace minerals and BioSil I was not looking for any special result and had no idea of the things they would cure . I used only 16 drops because more than that made the water taste bad. Later on, when I saw the benefits of the regimen, I added about 5 drops separately for a while. Personally I think it is not so much the amount you use as the consistency. I have been following the same routine now for a few years. Maybe upping the dosage is overdosing. I would rather just let everything take its time.

As  to drinking it immediately, I never knew about that. It is just as well because apparently it doesn't matter.

I have seen so many recommendations for getting rid of varicose veins. All are complicated and none promise total cure (not even surgery because new veins become varicosed).

My legs are completely clear - there is not a spot or blotch to be seen. I am sorry that I never took a picture of them at their most horrible, but it never occurred to me that the condition would be cured.
