Home Remedies for the Treatment Varicose Veins

The condition implies swollen veins, particularly in the legs, but may occur elsewhere also. Veins in the legs contain one-way valves which allow blood to flow back up towards the heart. If, for instance, muscles of calves weaken due to poor nutrition, obesity, pregnancy, lack of physical activity, in old age, after prolonged standing then the valves fail to function efficiently as a consequence of which the blood stagnates and collects in the veins, causing swelling. The veins look like a bunch of tangled ropes, and their prominence is quite visible. Varicose veins become more prominent as the person ages and tend to be inherited. These veins occur in the superficial veins in your legs.

Vericose veins are of three types -

  1. Trunk varicose veins - are thick, large and usually visible as they are near to the surface of the skin.

  2. Reticular varicose veins - are closely grouped together like a network.

  3. Telangiectasia varicose veins - that sometimes appear on your face or legsor and are harmless.

Home Remedies

  • As a supportive measure, do not let the legs hand down, rather keep them slightly raised above the thigh-level, by keeping a cushion or pillow under the feet, making an angle of 60 degree, so that gravity helps the venous system. Prepare diluted version of essential oils by mixing base (vegetable) oil to essential oils of chamomile, cypress or even juniper, and massage the vericosed veins and areas around, in the upward direction going from downwards towards the heart side to reduce congestion.

  • Prepare a dilution of water and tinctures of Witch Hazel, Marigold and apply externally over the vericosed area. Lime Blossom infusion is capable of improving peripheral blood circulation, whereas Horse chestnut (Aesculus Hippocastanum) may be taken in water, or else its tablets. Dosage as 30 drops twice daily.

  • Herbal treatment can be more effective if regular and sustainable physical activity is also resorted to, as both are complementary to each other.
