Defective valves, or compression of the vein by a nearby structure, can cause dilatation of the testicular veins near the testis, leading to the formation of a varicocele.  Most of the male infertility problem is due to varicocele. Homoeopathic treatment for varicocele without surgery shows the marked improvement in parameters of semen, both total count and motility.  When a person diagnosed as varicocele, usually the testicles are hot and painful to touch.

Vein Thrombosis

To prevent deep vein thrombosis, some common preventive measures include the following:

  • Take any prescribed medications as directed. If you're having surgery, such as orthopedic surgery, you'll probably be given blood thinners while you're in the hospital. Your doctor may also prescribe aspirin or other medications that help prevent clots to be taken for a while after surgery.
  • Avoid sitting still. If you've had surgery or have been on bed rest for other reasons, try to get moving as soon as possible. If you're sitting for a while, try not to cross your legs because this can limit blood flow. If you're traveling a long distance by car, stop every hour or so and walk around.

    If you're on a plane, try to stand or walk occasionally. If you can't do that, at least try to exercise your lower legs. Try raising and lowering your heels while keeping your toes on the floor, then raising your toes while your heels are on the floor.

  • Make lifestyle changes. Lose weight and quit smoking. Obesity and smoking increase your risk of deep vein thrombosis.
  • Get regular exercise. Exercise lowers your risk of blood clots, which is especially important for people who have to sit a lot or travel frequently.

Homeopathic Remedies for Varicose Veins

Homeopathic Remedies for Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are known to be a very common problem, which result in the inflammation of veins in the body. Veins are the blood vessels, which are responsible for the transfer of deoxygenated blood from the different parts of the body to the heart. Because the blood does not contain oxygen, it has a bluish tinge. As a result varicose veins are most likely to appear bluish when swollen. 

This condition is quite common in old people and some are even likely to develop slight ulcers in the vein.

Homeopathic treatment for varicose veins

Certain Homeopathic drugs are said to work wonders for this condition, as they not only offer pain relief, but also make the veins more elastic. This helps with effective circulation and thus, the swelling reduces. The following is a list of some homeopathic medicines that work best to cure varicose veins.

  1. Hamamelis: It is known to be the best cure for varicose veins. It effectively stops any sort of bleeding from the veins. It also offers relief from pain and from a sensation of heaviness of the legs. 
  2. Pulsatilla: This medicine is greatly recommended for women who develop varicose veins during the course of their pregnancy. It immediately does away with the pain. The medicine especially works well for swollen veins of the legs and the hands. Application of a cold pack also helps relieve the pain and reduce swelling. 
  3. Calcarea: It is generally recommended to patients who have varicose veins, but do not suffer from any pain. In case the patient feels chilly and suffers from various other symptoms like some sort of burning sensation in the veins or cold hand and feet, calcarea is a good cure. 
  4. Graphites: It is known to be a great cure for varicose veins that is accompanied with some amount of itching and cramping. 
  5. Arnica: This homeopathic medicine effectively deals with varicose veins accompanied with symptoms like soreness and bruising.

Hello, the appearance of enlarged or twisted veins usually on the legs or feet is referred to as varicose veins. This medical condition is common among people who are prone to pretty long hours of standing or sitting work. Varicose veins may also appear during pregnancy. These are dark purple or bluish in colour, with or without pain symptoms of vaicose veins:- aching, heavy and uncomfortable legs. Swollen feet and ankles. Burning or throbbing in your legs. Muscle cramp in legs, particularly at night. Dry, itchy and thin skin over the affected vein. Treatment part -homeopathy is a very effective natural mode of treatment for varicose veins. Homeopathic medicines are very safe as these are made of natural sources. Homeopathic medicines treat varicose veins by stimulating the restorative processes of the body. They work by strengthening the wall of the veins. Homoeopathy goes to the root of the problem and the medicines are not habit-forming. These natural remedies are also free from any side-effect. Homoeopathic treatment also does not involve harmful and painful surgical interventions.
