Home Remedies For Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged veins that appear close to the skin’s surface. They occur usually in the calves and thighs and is the result of malfunctioning valves inside the veins due to prolonged pressure or obstruction of the veins.

Common factors contributing to varicose veins are heredity, occupations that require a lot of standing, obesity, use of birth control pills, constipation and hormonal changes in the body during pregnancy, puberty, and menopause. A deficiency of Vitamin C and bioflavonoids can weaken the collagen structure in the vein walls, which can also lead to varicose veins.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, varicose veins affect an estimated 25 percent of women and 10 percent of men. As medical and surgical treatments for varicose veins can be very expensive , you can try some home remedies to decrease the severity of varicose veins as well as reduce some of the discomfort they can cause.

Here are the top 3 home remedies for varicose veins.

Garlic Oil

Garlic is an excellent herb for reducing inflammation and the symptoms of varicose veins. It is one of the most effective natural treatments for varicose veins. It also helps break up harmful toxins in the blood vessels and improve circulation.

How To Use It

Put a few drops of garlic oil on your fingers and gently massage the area affected by varicose veins. Cover the affected area with a layer of non-absorbent material (such as a plastic sheet) and wrap it with a warm cloth or a bandage. 

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is anti-inflammatory, helps heal wounds and stimulates collagen. It helps soothe inflamed and painful veins.

How To Use It

Apply a few drops of jojoba oil on the area affected by varicose veins. Gently massage. Leave this for a few minutes and rinse with warm water.

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper is considered a miracle treatment for varicose veins. Being a very rich source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, it increases blood circulation and eases the pain of congested, swollen veins.

How To Use It

Add one teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder to a cup of hot water and stir it well. Drink this mixture three times a day for one or two months.

Varicose veins are seen more often in women and in people who have to work in a standing position for long hours. Pregnancy and obesity worsen the condition since they put extra strain on the legs. Uncomplicated varicose veins are usually treated by either surgically removing them or treating them with lasers or injections. These home remedies will surely help to relieve pain during treatment.

i bought dermalmd varicose vein treatment serum for my friend and after around 3 weeks of using it daily plus massaging. The varicose vein on her leg are flattened and are disappearing!! For the veins that were quite visible but not bulge out are more or less gone. It is really WORKING, she had tried quite a few method before, but this works the quickest and the most effective.

I work out a lot and have started to get spider veins in my calf muscles. I bought Dermalmd Varicose Vein Treatment serum and it has definitely helped lessen the appearance of the spider veins in my legs. My legs also also looks more toned and smooth, and I have been happy with the results. Also, I have sensitive skin, and have had no issues with skin reactions. I would recommend this product to those who have spider or varicose veins.
