Apple Cider Vinegar and Varicose Veins

No one wants varicose veins. Everyday, people spend money to cure varicose veins, when they do not have to spend as much money as they do. If you are looking to fix varicose veins, then you have come to the right place, because I have found a cheap cure for varicose veins: apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is something that I am sure most of us are familiar with, but did you know that it is also a natural varicose vein treatment? There is a lot of information out there that claims that apple cider vinegar will great for removing varicose veins, and I believe that it will. You don't need to go through costly treatments like laser removal. With this method, all this will cost you is the price of purchasing the vinegar from your local market.

Odds are, you are embarrassed about your varicose veins and would like to remove varicose veins discreetly. I don't blame you—I understand that not everyone wants to see a specialist, because you do not want a stranger to see your varicose veins, and you do not want to have to live with the embarrassment. This is a huge factor for many in deciding whether or not they seek treatment for their problems, and many people simply choose to live with their varicose veins instead of trying to fix it. If this is you, then you can rest assured that I have looked far and wide for the best varicose vein treatments that you can do by yourself, right at home.

So what is the first step when it comes to getting rid of varicose veins? Be willing to try out different things in getting rid of your vein problem. Once you have done this, then finding the cure for varicose veins is very easy. I have looked into several cures, and I think that the apple cider vinegar cure is probably one of the most one.

How to Remove Varicose Veins Using Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is such a great cure for varicose veins because it is so inexpensive, and you can find it just about anywhere. Nature always seems to know best, and nature seems to know the way to get rid of those bulging veins, which may be putting a damper on your social life, because they are so embarrassing. Well, you don't have to hide those bulging veins anymore, when you can simply get rid of them.

Here is the proven cure for varicose veins using apple cider vinegar:

  1. Find some quality apple cider vinegar. This can usually be found at your local grocery store, and it can also be found online if you so desire.
  2. Make sure that the apple cider vinegar that you buy is undiluted. This will make it an extra effective treatment option for varicose veins.
  3. Take the undiluted apple cider vinegar, and apply it to the varicose veins every night by rubbing against them.
  4. Repeat this varicose vein treatment in the morning, in the same way that you applied your treatment at night.
  5. Every day, mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water.
  6. Drink this mixture of apple cider vinegar and water twice a day.
  7. Wait about one month, and you will see your varicose veins disappear!

I hope that this guide to removing varicose veins has been helpful. Good luck to removing your varicose veins, once and for all!

      its not the cider vinegar. It's the rubbing. What your doing when you apply the vinegar is massaging it in. You can get the exact same effect with a stick!!! Or simple lotion. When you massage your varicose veins your repeatedly emptying them and after a short period of time you collapse them. If your drinking it your simply thinning your blood. You can get the same blood thinning effect from sucking on a willow leaf or drinking willow tea.

      I have tried this method and it really only is a temporary solution. The reason that is shows signs of shrinking of the vein is due to the fact it is a vinegar. Pickling from the outside thus shrinking the vein in the process.

      It caused me problems because when the vein was slightly shrinking the build up in pressure caused varicose eczma which is no joke.

      I do wish people would not make statements on these pages that say, it will cure without considering that different people have different size varicose veins. and that the conditions need to be dealt with properly and not like this. And no i don't believe surgery is the answer.

      However, i have found apple cider vinegar to be very useful for digestion, which makes more sense than to put it on your skin for a temporary solution that just casused me pain.

      Apple Cider Vinegar is a great varicose vein supplement, however be very careful when applying it undiluted to the skin. I had real problems with eczema appearing and irritating the skin. This happened even though i also applied moisturiser afterwards.

      I am carrying on with it orally mixed with water, but am unable to apply due to this problem.

      If anyone has any ideas that could prevent this, please post them on here.

      Thankyou Ay - UK

      I have been trying for just over a month, but in the UK we have been experiencing very wet humidity at 94% which as everyone should know contributes to the veins swelling.

      Orally i have been using Apple Cider Vinegar with the 'mother' for more than 5 months. Orally it has helped and eradicated my lactose intolerance which is great.

      The eczema caused by my varicose veins has subsided, and noticeable reduction slightly with my veins has been apparent. But i am still hoping the weather will change, and i will be able to have a bit more success with the ACV. Also the feeling of the veins has changed.

      At the moment i am still hoping for more improvement, as i have had my problem for nearly 19 years.

      I always add a emulsifying ointment to my legs after treating with the Apple Cider Vinegar to stop drying of the skin, which is good.

      Good to know about this. I would like to share about the combination of ayurvedic herbs and homoeopathic remedies which gives wonderful results.These remedies work specifically by correcting the incompetence of the valve within the veins, reducing venous congestion by improving blood circulation, using natural bioflavanoids to strengthen the walls of the arteries and veins, optimizing the function of the valves in your veins and promoting the flow of blood in the right direction.

      Some of the frequently used remedies are OM5 VARICease formula, C28 VARICease formula and C28 HEMRH formula.

      Thanks Sonia for the tips! I'm getting Bragg's vinegar from my supermarket. A pity my country doesn't really carry Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and the price is really marked up a lot. I can only get 300 ml at $5

      I've read that only Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother would work. Gonna try it now!

      Btw i've been using Heinz for the past few weeks... Didn't work at all!

    • profile image

      Sonia 5 years ago

      Hi! Don't use Heinz or any other vinegar that's clear. It's been pasteurized and filtered which gets rid of the enzimes. I use Bragg vinegar which I get at Whole Foods or Henry's for around $3. It's raw and unfiltered.

      I'm only 19 and I have rather huge (but short) varicose vein behind my knees. They are really BIG and swollen but they do not extend to my calves though. I'm very bothered by it and I dare not wear shorts out. :( I have just started on the ACV treatment though my ACV is diluted to 5% (Heinz's product) (I really hate the smell and taste though) and I would definitely try this out for one or two months to see if it really works. Thanks so much for this information!

      ok, im 34 and i have big bulging veins in hands, feet and spider veins. These are not varicose because they don't hurt. The Apple cider vinegar is way to disgusting, i puke it even before drinking it. Can i get rid of my veins just by rubbing the vinegar in the veins and taking apple cider vinegar pills?
