Varicose veins occur when the valves inside veins become weak or disappear, as well as when blood returning from congested areas within the body is inefficient. Veins become enlarged and swollen and can cause aching, tenderness, muscle cramping and itching. Varicose veins are most commonly found in the legs. Because insurance companies are reluctant to pay for varicose veins when they pose no risk, many people seek out home remedies on their own to try and correct their problem.
Mix three parts raw carrot juice with two parts raw spinach juice and consume at least 500 ml daily. Take this with a vitamin C supplement of around 3,000 mg. Avoid eating potatoes and other starchy foods as well as coffee, alcohol, condiments, white flour or white sugar. Consider remedies such as pulsatilla, carbo vegetabilis, and hamamelis, which are often used to treat milder cases of varicose veins. If you are experiencing brusing from your veins, take arnica montana, and take calcarea carbonica or lycopodium if you are experiencing pain. Adhere to the dosage recommendations on the package unless advised to do otherwise by your doctor.
You can apply many different oils and liquids to your varicose veins to help them improve. Put cider vinegar on your varicose veins every morning and evening until you begin to see progress. You can also use vitamin E oil, witch hazel tea and oil of rosemary. Consider applying a mudpack to your varicose veins and letting it set overnight. You should take Epsom salt baths twice weekly. Sunbathing is also a good option for your varicose veins because of the vitamin D your body absorbs. Be sure to stretch the affected areas daily to improve blood flow. Also, stop smoking, if you are.
