A healthy diet and lifestyle along with proper fitness and a few stretches are enough to prevent varicose veins. Also, one of the biggest problems in today’s society is sitting for long periods of time. A toxic diet and lack of movement along with tightness of the soleus muscle which is the lower part of the calf muscle will cause varicose veins. This muscle acts as a pump to force blood back up the leg and eventually to the heart. Stretching this muscle and walking at least 30 minutes a day will also help prevent varicose veins. Also, make sure you’re on an organic plant based diet with lots of healthy fats like coconut oil and olive oil. You should also be juicing vegetables and blending fruits every single day. Veggie juice and blended fruit contains soluble fiber which can be absorbed into your bloodstream and actually cleans your blood vessels much like insoluble fiber from eating raw veggies cleans out your colon. This will improve blood flow throughout your body including the blood from your legs back up to your heart where varicose veins develop. Proper diet, healthy blood, and proper exercise are the 3 keys to preventing and reversing varicose veins.

The Soleus Stretch
The Soleus tends to be extremely tight in most people that sit for long periods of time. Place the ball of your foot on a brick sized object (3inches) and lean your knee forward directly over your toes. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds at a time on each foot and do it at least once a day. I also recommend walking barefoot if possible at least 30 minutes a day. Walking barefoot is a fantastic way to strengthen the intrinsic muscles of your feet which will improve blood flow throughout the legs and help with varicose veins.

Here’s a video that demonstrates this stretch:
