Varicose veins & witch hazel
Just a note to let you know that the information I found on this site about the use of witch hazel for circulation problems involving varicose veins, was good.
Although I found sites that recommended soaking a cloth to put over the veins and letting sit for a half hour, I have only been using cotton balls soaked in witch hazel and just rubbing it over the sites of the veins around my ankles, behind my knees and the prominent veins on my hands and wrists.
After doing this nightly for only a few days, when I started to do the ritual tonight, I noticed that the varicose vein patches are getting noticably lighter and smaller. It really works! Thanks to you and the people who write their experiences here. I keep coming back to this site and have added the forum to my Favorites.
On another subject, I read so many messages here that said that apple cider vinegar worked for them for indigestion. That one I didn't get. I had starting taking vinegar for it's health benefits, but it GAVE me indigestion until I started using baking soda with it. One time, to kill the taste, I added a couple of ounces of regular apple juice, and it killed the taste very well. Then, I tried the concoction without the baking powder and no indigestion today. I really don't want to be taking in so much sodium as I have high blood pressure. Anyway, try the vinegar mixed with apple juice. It just tastes like apple juice with a pleasant tang.
Thanks for the forum and everyone who takes the time to tell how things work for you. Keep up the good work!
