Varicose Veins and a Raw Food Diet

Hi:

I found your address and hope you may be able to help me.

I have huge varicose veins, spider veins, broken blood vessels in my legs and feet. Will just a raw diet clear them up?

My right foot looks like a truck ran it over. I am rather young to live with it forever.

I am in search of alternative ways to heal my body.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

AD


Hi, AD:

By all means, I do believe a Raw Diet would heal most if not all your health problems, however only if it is predominantly "green," meaning derived from lots of fresh, leafy green vegetables.

Many people make the mistake of consuming too much fruit when they change to a Raw Food diet, and although that is certainly better than the Standard American Diet, and improvements will be made, it is important, I feel, to insure the majority of the food content be from fresh veggies.

This is even more important when the body is diseased.

You might wish to read some of the articles on our webpage and start with the following to give you a good overview: http://www.all-creatures.org/cb/a-calcif.html  

Another excellent website is:

Click on "Testimonials" and then use the search engine to find a subject of interest.

A proper diet and appropriate exercise are the keys to bringing all the other of life's important aspects into focus, I believe. And these are keys within most people's grasp.

Good Luck!;-)
