This is an interesting and educational 6-minute video about varicose veins and hemorrhoids by a chiropractic and nutritional physician who is a colleague of Dr. Godo’s.
The cause of both of these conditions is explained in simple terms and some suggestions are given for how to remedy them.
Comments from Nutrition Breakthroughs: Particularly applicable to menopausal women, this information can be helpful. Walking and keeping the body moving is a good thing to do when one has varicose veins and/or hemorrhoids as this assists with blood circulation. Magnesium foods and supplements have been proven to help with leg pain or cramping. Elevating the legs also helps.
Other menopause symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes or insomnia can be helped by using absorbable forms of magnesium, calcium and vitamin D. Here’s a quote on this from the Nutrition Breakthroughs blog:
The pioneering nutritionist Adelle Davis says, “The amount of calcium in a woman’s blood parallels the activity of the ovaries. During the menopause, the lack of ovarian hormones (estrogen and progesterone) can cause severe calcium deficiency symptoms to occur, including irritability, hot flashes, night sweats, leg cramps, and insomnia. These problems can be easily overcome if the intakes of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are all generously increased and are well absorbed.”
