So, the vein issue seems to be a universal one. Spider veins may seem superficial, but they are strongly indicative of a less than healthy blood quality and the deoxygenation of  blood. The way most vein problems are commented upon and treated  here in the USA is on a very superficial level. Unbelievable to me, most vein issues are talked about as a cosmetic problem. This non-approach -approach defines the dumbed down view of health by the media, doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. That is how it is handled here in the States. And there are enough people who, on some level, want it dumbed down. I know that sounds arrogant, but I feel it is true. Why? In the moment these quick fix non-solution-solutins seem easier.

Connecting spider veins to poor circulation and other personally resolvable health problems is an inconvenient truth. When something deeper is going awry there is always some kind of red flag that shows itself on the surface. Spider Veins are one of those red flags surfacing. Varicose veins are more often associated with heart disease. Still the treatment is often surgical and does not get to the root cause. The core source of vascular dysfunction is usually NOT connected to an unhealthy digestive and eliminative system. The only mainstream connection I have heard with Varicose Veins is to stop straining on the toilet, aka constipation. Why poor bowel health is happening and what to do about it is not mentioned.  That says volumes right there.

The primary cause of poor circulation is poor gut health. This weakness in digestion and gut health compounded and due to exposure to toxins, especially heavy metal poisons. The most commonly discussed reason for poor circulation – cardiovascular illness- is a diet high in poor quality fat and sugar. These are some main contributors toward reasons that go unaddressed. One reason is that these foods are primary carriers of toxins that the body can not eliminate and protect itself from without help. So, poor quality fats and sugar are not the primary culprits of cardiovascular disease.


Ingesting clay is NOT a new approach to healing unhealthy vein issues of all kinds. Michele Abeshera, author of The Healing Power of Clay has been advocating the ingestion and the external application of clay for, at least, a couple of decades. The use of clay to heal goes way beyond that.

For a website that give more information on the uses of Sodium and Calcium Bentonite Clay treatments for spider, varicose and other veins problems click here. For more clarity as to why some recommend Calcium over Sodium Bentonite Clay read up. As far as I know, I would not sweat it and SBC is just fine for this purpose. Don’t take my word for it if you have some haunting doubts,

LL’s Magnetic Clay. This company has something powerful going on with their clay for external application. I instinctively know that the way to go primarily  is consuming SB Clay internally. External use is a great adjunct. I  can personally endorse LL’s Clay, but go easy with it. It is strong stuff. LL’s has different kinds for all types of heavy metal and toxicity poisoning. I would start with the plain clay. Of course, I did not do that, extremist that I can tend to be.  Looking back it was not such a good idea. The external application can start a big cleansing reaction and it cause strong symptoms. Anyway, LL’s has lots of info on their site about recommended use. One thing I found helpful is to take Cal Cit in larger  amounts than usual when using the LL’s Clay for packs or baths. The LL’s website recommends more Calcium when using their products. I am sure the reason is to balance the amount of acidic – toxic material being drawn out of the organs and tissues into the blood from the use of the clay.


I usually feel great right after the bath or pack, but by late afternoon or evening I am having some of the symptoms I described above. I have not had a good experience taking these baths or packs at night. What I experience is some stiffness in my extremities, feeling a bit wired, hard to sleep, etc. I can also feel foggy headed  and quite tired switching to the opposite end that I just described. The Cal Cit really worked to resolve this. I make sure that if I take Mag Cit I do not take Cal Cit at the same time in the evening. I wait an hour or so. My experience.

Also, one year and change into UHP, the LL’s Magnetic Clay works much better for me. The symptoms are less, but still there. More easily quieted. Really benefit more from the LL’s at this point on UHP.

Donna Pessin told me that the last part of the body to heal are the legs. I remember her saying this when I asked her about healing my leg injury and some minor spider veins. Also, I have noticed very clearly while on The Unique Healing Program that there is a distinct ebb and flow to my healing. I can see and feel great progress and then feel like I have gone backwards a bit. Don’t be discouraged with veins looking better, a bit worse. The same 2 steps forward one step back pattern seems to exist within all facets of any healing process. All these facets are deeply connected to the health of our gut. Sorry to sound like a broken record on that one. If you are on The Unique Healing Program you already know this or will be convinced of it at some point.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
