I've been suffering from varicose vein from 08 years and most of the treatment are surgical so I wanted to know if there's any treatment besides surgery.

Hi. Surgery is indicated only for particular conditions only. Lik pain, skin changes n ulcer formation. But they won't get cure with medications. Medicines can delay surgery only.

The ten most important things you need to know about Vitamin D, with AITD or not:

Vitamin D is not really a vitamin. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble steroid hormone precursor that you get primarily from either sun exposure or supplementation. A very small amount comes from a few foods we eat.
Vitamin D has been known for its contribution to the maintenance of normal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the bloodstream. Current research has discovered that vitamin D levels can also impact a wide range of health issues, such as:
Cancer (Breast, Ovarian, Colon, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Kidney, Endometrial, Prostate)
Type 1 Diabetes
Fractures/Osteoporosis
Pregnancy Complications
Multiple Sclerosis
Cardiovascular disease
High Blood Pressure
Asthma
The vitamin D that you take into your body is changed by your liver into a substance called 25(OH)D. Vitamin D (25 (OH)D) is usually measured on a scale of 30 – 100 ng/ml. Below 30 is commonly considered deficient.
To determine whether you need to supplement vitamin D, you should test your vitamin D level by doing the 25-hydroxy D lab test, which measures 25(OH)D. The Vitamin D Council recommends testing every 3-6 months when you’re trying different regimens to figure out how much vitamin D you need to maintain your optimal level. Once you’ve reached your optimal level, GrassrootsHealth recommends, “From that point forward, testing should be done at a minimum of once a year, ideally in the early spring (late March, early April) when your vitamin D level is the lowest. It’s a good time to adjust to make sure you don’t get too low.”
The optimal level of vitamin D is a matter for debate. The Vitamin D Council suggests that “a level of 50 ng/ml is the ideal level to aim for, with a range of 40 – 80 ng/ml.” And there used to be mention that ideal is 60 – 80.
Dr. Mercola says, “At present, based on the evaluation of healthy populations that get plenty of natural sun exposure, the optimal range for general health appears to be somewhere between 50 and 70 ng/ml.” GrassrootsHealth Scientists like to see the serum level ‘between 40-60 ng/ml.” Dr. Davis of Wheat Belly feels the optimal level is 60-70 ng/ml. Since people with AITD aren’t healthy and have factors that impair their production, absorption and utilization of vitamin D, the minimum 25(OH)D level for those with AITD may be need to be higher than for healthier people.
The recommended daily amount of vitamin D is also a matter for debate. For example, this amount ranges from 400 IU/day by the US government, 1,500 – 2,000 IU /day by the Endocrine Society to 5,000 IU/day by the Vitamin D Council. Grassroots Health has a chart on its web site that tells you how much vitamin D to take to change your level and says that intake of 35 IU/lb of body weight estimates the ideal daily dose. These amounts can be affected by amount of body fat, gut inflammation, high cortisol levels, auto-immune issues, impaired fat absorption, use of drugs that reduce absorption, aging, and genetic defects, Since intake amount doesn’t guarantee optimal levels, testing on a regular basis is highly recommended. But many thyroid patients have discovered that they don’t begin to raise their levels until they are at 5000 IU at the least, probably due to absorption issues inherent with our low stomach acid levels. See #9 below.
The Vitamin D Council recommends taking vitamin D3 rather than vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 is the type of vitamin D naturally produced by your body in response to sun exposure, while vitamin D2 is not. In the United States, most over-the-counter vitamin D supplements are D3. Other than that, it doesn’t matter what form of vitamin D you take, whether it’s in a capsule, tablet or liquid. For most people, vitamin D is easily absorbed in the body and you don’t need to worry about what time of day you take it or whether you take it with meals.
Vitamin D is fat-soluble, which means your body has a hard time getting rid of it if you take too much. The Vitam

Hi there, I am very glad for your question. I appreciate that you got the courage to have your question answered on a public forum. Thought challenging in cognitive behavioral therapy Thought challenging—also known as cognitive restructuring—is a process in which you challenge the negative thinking patterns that contribute to your anxiety, replacing them with more positive, realistic thoughts. This involves three steps: Identifying your negative thoughts. With anxiety disorders, situations are perceived as more dangerous than they really are. To someone with a germ phobia, for example, shaking another person’s hand can seem life threatening. Although you may easily see that this is an irrational fear, identifying your own irrational, scary thoughts can be very difficult. One strategy is to ask yourself what you were thinking when you started feeling anxious. Your therapist will help you with this step. Challenging your negative thoughts. In the second step, your therapist will teach you how to evaluate your anxiety-provoking thoughts. This involves questioning the evidence for your frightening thoughts, analyzing unhelpful beliefs, and testing out the reality of negative predictions. Strategies for challenging negative thoughts include conducting experiments, weighing the pros and cons of worrying or avoiding the thing you fear, and determining the realistic chances that what you’re anxious about will actually happen. Replacing negative thoughts with realistic thoughts. Once you’ve identified the irrational predictions and negative distortions in your anxious thoughts, you can replace them with new thoughts that are more accurate and positive. Your therapist may also help you come up with realistic, calming statements you can say to yourself when you’re facing or anticipating a situation that normally sends your anxiety levels soaring. As you explore your anxiety disorder in therapy, you may also want to experiment with complementary therapies designed to bring your overall stress levels down and help you achieve emotional balance. Exercise – Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. Research shows that as little as 30 minutes of exercise three to five times a week can provide significant anxiety relief. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least an hour of aerobic exercise on most days. Relaxation techniques – When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, controlled breathing, and visualization can reduce anxiety and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Biofeedback – Using sensors that measure specific physiological functions—such as heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension—biofeedback teaches you to recognize the body’s anxiety response and learn how to control them using relaxation techniques. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.
