My mom is 50 years old and she's a nurse she's got varicose vein so Dr. please suggest some home remedy or treatments for a faster recovery.
I am facing problem of varicose ven. I want to know any treatment available in Ayurveda and homeopathy and which one is more effective?
I suffered from varicose veins in last trimester of my pregnancy. They were visible and protruding on both of my legs due to which I suffered from restless legs And after delivery they subsidised. Its been only 6 months since birth of my baby but of late I can see those spider veins again in legs becoming black they have not protruded yet. But due to them I am unable to stand for sometime. I have tried stocking but did not find them of much use. Is there any treatment available except surgery.
Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that look blue and are close to the surface of the skin. A vein is said to be varicose when it is dilated, lengthened and tortuous. These twisted, swelled and bulging vessels are commonly found on the insides of the legs between the groin and the ankle, at the back of the calf and as hemorrhoids (veins around the anus).
They form because the blood flow is too slow and the veins get slowly dilated and tortuous in order to accomodate more blood in the lumen. Another possible reason is that the valve in the vein are not working properly so the blood drops down with gravity and collects in the veins of the legs. It is believed that upto 15% adults in the western world are affected by this condition. Varicose veins are more likely to occur in women than in men.
