Varicose Veins

Vericose veins are veins which have become enlarged and twisted due to a weakening in the vein's wall or valves.

Wearing compression stockings for Varicose Veins is often the first approach to try before moving on to other treatments. Compression stockings are worn all day long. They steadily squeeze your legs, helping veins and leg muscles move blood more efficiently. The amount of compression varies by type and brand. Stockings for varicose Veins come in a variety of strengths, styles and colors and are sold at most pharmacies and medical supply stores. Prescription-strength stockings also are available. Prices vary, and stockings generally last from four to six months.  With the variety offered, you’re likely to find a stocking that you're comfortable wearing.

When purchasing compression stockings, make sure that they fit properly. Using a tape measure, you or your pharmacist can measure your legs to ensure you get the right size and fit according to the size chart found on the stocking package. Compression stockings should be strong but not necessarily tight. If you have weak hands or arthritis, getting these stockings on may be difficult. There are devices to make putting them on easier.

Other remedies:

· Putting your feet up and applying a compress made with sage tea (Salvia officianialis) can minimize the swelling of your varicose veins. Rich in anti-inflammatory compounds, sage reduces swelling by shrinking vein walls. Steep 6 teaspoons dried sage in three cups boiling hot water for 30 minutes (double the recipe if you're treating both legs) and strain. Dunk a medium-size hand towel in the tea and gently wring it out. Sit in a spot where you can put your feet up above your heart and wrap the towel snugly around your problem leg.

· Apply apple cider vinegar, just as it comes from the bottle to the varicose veins night and morning. Shrinking of the veins should be noticed by the end of the month.

· Berries. Eat large quantities of dark red berries, such as cherries, blackberries, black currants, and grapes - they contain plant compounds that restore the veins and capillaries.

· Garlic, onions, cayenne pepper, and bromelain (an enzyme found in fresh pineapple and also available in supplement form) which help to break down fibrin and keep the blood thinned and moving.

· Black strap molasses. Take two to three teaspoons of black strap molasses orally daily. This also treats all kinds of circulatory ailments.

· Supplements. 1,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin C and at least 1,000 mg of bioflavonoids daily.

· Make an essential oil blend of five drops of cypress, two drops of lemon, three drops of yarrow, three drops of frankincense, and two drops of rosemary. Place fifteen drops of the essential oil blend into one ounce of calendula or St. Johns wort oil. Massage this combination gently onto varicose veins two to three times a day.
