The season of shorts, summer dresses and swimming suits is upon us and I would like to help you manage this bothersome ailment, if not help you get rid of it completely.
If you suffer from spider veins you know how unsightly they can be. And if you suffer from varicose veins you know they are not only unsightly, but can be painful. Today I’m going to cover how drinking alkaline ionized water has not only helped my spider veins, but also how it has helped many others and why.
What are spider veins and varicose veins?
Spider veins are dilated veins close to the skin’s surface. They are usually red or blue and look like a spider’s web or tree branches. They are normally found on the legs and/or face.
Varicose veins are red or blue swollen veins where blood has pooled and caused the distention of the vein due to poor circulation. The valves in the veins which are supposed to prevent blood from flowing in the wrong direction are malfunctioning and so the blood starts flowing back down, away from the heart, and so blood pools in the affected veins. They are usually found on the legs and are most common in women above the age of 50. However, anyone can suffer from them and they can be hereditary.
Both problems stem from the same issue, malfunctioning valves in the veins, however, varicose veins are a more extreme case of malfunction.
How Does Alkaline Water Help?
As I have previously written in a former blog post and in my own testimonial page , I have noticed that drinking alkaline ionized water with higher than -400 ORP levels has helped get rid of my spider veins! The rest of this article is devoted to explaining why this is, and giving you tips to help you replicate what I did, i.e., rid yourself of spider veins.
There are two reasons why I believe drinking of alkaline water helps spider veins.
- The abundant antioxidants in alkaline ionized water help to fight free-radicals which are constantly bombarding the circulatory system, at their starting point. When we breathe in, we take in Oxygen, O2 +. The majority of this Oxygen is in the form of free-radicals, because each Oxygen pair is missing one electron in its outer ring. It will seek out and steal that electron from surrounding molecules, tissue and cell walls. The first place Oxygen goes is into the circulatory system, where it robs the walls of the veins of its needed electron. Read more about the free-radical theory of aging. Alkaline ionized water has an abundance of anti-oxidants, negatively-charged spare electrons, to donate to the active Oxygen molecules, causing them to neutralize instantly and become more bio-friendly.
- It is a well-known fact that when the body rids itself of acidic wastes it rejuvenates the circulatory system of the body. This is otherwise called "cleansing". Alkaline ionized water helps to cleans the body of toxins. When you cleanse the body, and keep the vessels of circulation clean, it makes sense that you will improve the health and strength of those vessels. Read more about the benefits of ionized water.
Drink enough alkaline ionized water to make a difference.I personally recommend drinking at least 1 gallon of water per day when you’re trying to rid your body of a specific ailment or malady. The suggested formula to determine your minimum daily requirement of water is: Take half your weight in ounces of water every day. So if you’re, say, 200 lbs, that would mean drinking 100 ounces of water per day, or roughly 12.5 cups of water.
