Rosemary wine and vine tea for better circulation during the summer
Vein diseases are the most common diseases of modern man – according to the statistics of the World Health Organization (about 30% of people over 25 years of age have problems with veins, while women have 4 times more vein diseases). Predispositions for the onset of the disease are overweight, pregnancy, hormonal changes during menopause, family history and jobs where a person stands for a long time.
- Regular exercise, especially walking is recommended
- Reduction of body weight
- Use medical socks for varicose veins
- Eat fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains that promote good digestion (because poor digestion is also one of the main causes of varicose veins).
- Eat blueberries, cherries, blackberries and black grapes (because they are rich sources of anthocyanin pigments that can strengthen veins).
- Add garlic, onion, ginger and cayenne pepper to the dishes (because they help the body to overcome fibrin, that is, the protein that creates hard tissue, a lot of lumps around varicose veins).
- Strengthening circulation is possible by showering alternately with hot/cold water every day. Use lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus baths (aromatic oils). In the morning, a foot and hand massage is useful (and a foot massage is especially useful because it stimulates blood circulation and better oxygen flow).
- Avoid fatty and spicy dishes. With the intake of bread, cereals, legumes and potatoes, you will give your body enough energy. A good choice is lentil and soy soup, wheat (or oat) soup with the addition of rosemary, celery and onion (because they provide the body with the necessary nutritional ingredients).
- The summer heat is particularly conducive to the worsening of circulation problems, which are increasingly common today. The symptoms are variable in nature and largely a reflection of the weather (low blood pressure symptoms worsen: blurred vision, dizziness, increased heart rate, i.e. the number of beats per minute, buzzing and ringing in the ears and cold sweating of the hands).
- Put pine needles, nettle leaf, mint leaf, basil, laurel, rosemary and geranium with chavanda flower, lemon peel, cinnamon and almond fruit in a cloth bag. Hang the bag on the faucet so that the stream of water flows over it. You can rub the body with a bag of plants at the end of the bath.
- Homemade wine made from dried rosemary – put 20 grams of dried rosemary in a liter of wine. Leave for 7 days. It is drunk strained and a small glass every morning.
- Consume fruits that contain potassium (bananas, apricots, citrus fruits, peaches) and vegetables rich in vitamin C (pepper, lettuce, spinach).
- Homemade vine tea – add one tablespoon of dried vine leaves to 2 dcl of water. Drink fresh tea three times a day for two to three weeks.
- Excessive heat should be avoided. Walking and cycling are moderate physical activities during hot summer days.
