Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins – The Safe Way

Using Natural Products to Treat Varicose Veins – The Safer Alternative to Surgery
Varicose veins – those blue, twisted blood vessels that bulge up around the legs – are notorious for their unsightly appearance and the great deal of pain and discomfort they cause.
You may think that the only way to successfully rid yourself of varicose veins involves a traumatic operation where the vein is poked, prodded, and removed. If you’ve cringed at the idea of surgery, keep reading to learn about the natural alternatives that exist, and how they’re just as effective in eliminating varicose veins – without the harmful complications of invasive surgery.
The Danger in Surgery
Surgical removal of varicose veins, also called vein stripping, involves the surgeon tying off the vein in the affected leg and then removing it with a wire. This invasive procedure is painful, and can cause bruising and bleeding. There is even the risk of cutting or damaging a nerve, especially if the vein is located behind the knee. Other dangerous side effects to surgical removal include scarring, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. More rare but serious complications from surgery include blood clotting (deep vein thrombosis) and permanent nerve damage!
Even less invasive vein-removal procedures like laser treatments can still cause scarring and nerve damage. Sclerotherapy, which involves injecting the vein with a saline solution, can cause blood clots, headaches, lower back pain, skin discoloration, fainting, vision impairment and even more serious problems like strokes.
For any of these vein-removal procedures, several treatments are required before the vein fades completely – meaning more risks, and more money out of your pocket.
Mother Nature Knows What’s Best
Poor blood circulation and loss of vein elasticity are what cause veins to bulge and swell, resulting in varicose veins. Fortunately, there are several natural herbs and skin-repairing proteins that have been clinically proven to treat varicose veins and improve overall vascular health. Check them out below:
Gotu kola is a valuable herb, clinically proven as an effective treatment for varicose veins. Used for thousands of years as a medicine in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition and in African and Chinese healing, Gotu kola rebuilds weakened connective tissue in the veins by stimulating collagen production, thus strengthening the internal lining of the vein. Having stronger veins means fewer varicose veins! Gotu kola also keeps the veins flexible, encourages blood flow, keeps veins from swelling and even decreases blood pressure.
Beta glucan is a soluble fiber known for soothing irritations and speeding up the skin’s healing process. It also increases the skin’s resistance and accelerates its cell regeneration. When treating varicose veins, Beta glucan improves the flexibility of blood vessels and prevents them from expanding or breaking. It is also known to prevent the formation of spider veins.
Wheat Germ Oil
Wheat germ oil is a great source of Vitamin E, which helps to improve blood circulation and tissue elasticity. It also helps prevent blood build-up at the top of valves.
Green tea, scientifically known as camellia sinensis, is rich in bioflavonoids that strengthen blood vessels and inhibit the formation of blood clots that lead to varicose veins. Green tea also contains a certain bioflavonoid called quercetin, known for possessing anti-viral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties – which is great for the circulatory system and the prevention of varicose veins.
Licorice Root Extract
Licorice root is known as the natural equivalent of cortisone, having an anti-inflammatory effect, reducing swelling and relieving pain in veins. Applying this extract topically greatly improves the appearance of varicose veins and speeds up the healing process.
Elastin is an important protein needed in the body for supporting and strengthening vein walls. If the walls of the veins become damaged, blood and fluids can escape into surrounding tissues causing inflammation and swelling – eventually resulting in varicose veins. Elastin is an element of healthy skin that gets lost as the body ages, so it’s important to always to find ways to help the body replenish it.
The medicinal, antibacterial and antiviral properties of aloe vera are well known. In the treatment of varicose veins, aloe vera increases the synthesis and strength of vein tissue. Its anti-inflammatory properties also relieve pain and decrease vein swelling.
Oats have been used in natural skin care even as far back as ancient Rome. Mostly known for their healing virtue, oats can help reduce swelling and relieve pain in varicose veins. They are also known for enhancing the skin’s overall appearance, with their skin lightening effects and ability to smooth out skin tone and texture.
