Varicose veins are actually weakened, enlarged veins visible below the skin surface. They are normally blue or dark purple in appearance.
There are a number of issues that contribute to this common condition – genetics, pregnancy, obesity, prolonged standing, age, straining etc.
When varicose veins first appear, they are normally treated with compression techniques such as wearing compression stockings. However, with the advancements of the condition, other health issues arise including painful inflammation, swelling, and a feeling of heaviness in legs. Spider veins, dilated capillaries on the skin, often accompany varicose veins as well. This only aggravates the condition.
One of the most beneficial natural remedies for soothing inflammation and stimulating blood flow is garlic. This vegetable has some amazing medicinal properties such as breaking down toxins in the body and supporting their elimination through body waste.
For long-term improvement, add garlic to your daily diet or take garlic supplement on a regular basis. For more immediate results, apply some garlic mixture directly on the affected area.
