Home-made Varicose Veins Treatment
April 25, 2013
According to National Institutes of Health, Veins are blood vessels that return deoxygenated blood from the outer parts of the body back to the heart and lungs. When veins become abnormally thick, full of twists and turns, or enlarged, they are called varicose veins. This happens most commonly in the veins in the legs and thighs.
Many people have no symptoms at all from their varicose veins, except for the fact that they are noticeable and their appearance can be embarrassing. Other than cosmetic embarrassment, the most common symptoms of varicose veins are aching, discomfort and heaviness of the legs, which are usually worse at the end of the day. Sometimes the ankle can swell, too. These symptoms are not medically serious, but can be treated if they are sufficiently troublesome.
The goals of varicose vein treatment are to reduce symptoms and prevent complications. For some, the goal may be improved appearance. Home treatment – especially exercising, wearing compression stockings or any kind of home-made varicose veins treatment – is the first and often best approach.
