Varicose veins

This condition is caused by deposits of inorganic calcium, cholesterol and

other inorganic elements in the walls of veins, causing them to clog up

and bulge outward through the skin; refined starch and sugar are primary

dietary culprits.

Spinach: raw spinach detoxifies and stimulates the lower bowel, so that

wastes are eliminated there rather than accumulating and polluting the

bloodstream; builds and balances blood; as juice, mix 6 oz with 10 oz

carrot juice, 2 pints daily.

Red beet juice: another potent purifier and builder of blood, raw beet

juice eliminates the blood toxemia that causes varicose veins; best taken

half/half with carrot juice, 1-2 pints daily; or sip 8 oz of the straight

beet juice slowly throughout the day.

Garlic: raw garlic dissolves the deposits of inorganic calcium and

cholesterol that lead to varicose veins.

Parsley juice: raw parsley juice is one of the most potent of all vegetable

juices for enhancing oxygen metabolism, cleansing the blood, dissolv-

ing sticky deposits in veins and maintaining elasticity of blood vessels,

especially delicate capillaries; it's too strong to take straight and

should be mixed with 4 oz to 12 oz carrot juice, or with other blends, 1

pint daily.

Other beneficial foods: lettuce juice; turnips; watercress; black grapes

(exclusively for 1-5 days, depending on severity). Black Fungus; mo-

lasses; lecithin.

Foods to avoid: pasteurized milk; refined starch, especially white flour;

refined sugar; cooked eggs and overcooked meats; hydrogenated fats.
