All About Natural Varicose Vein Remedies

Natural_Varicose_Vein_Blog_May09.jpg Clearly, varicose veins are a nuisance: from discomfort to aesthetics, they plague millions of people each year. Generally the first form of treatment is invasive or rather minimally invasive procedures which are efficient and effective at removing the gnarled veins. However, prior to jumping on board the surgical path, there are a number of home remedies available to ease the pain or aid in remedying the varicose veins. Personal Liberty News wrote about natural remedies saying, "In particular, moderate muscle-toning exercise or yoga help veins preserve their natural shape, while the cholesterol-lowering effects of exercise may act to boost vein health from within. Herbal supplements, such as horse chestnut extract are also commonly used to treat varicose veins. Studies have shown the active component in horse chestnut called aescin appears to block the release of enzymes that damage capillary walls, according to the alternative health section of About.com, an informational website." Similarly, a number of holistic websites say that eating an ample supply of antioxidants, buckwheat, fruit are great preventative remedies. While avoiding heavy consumption of red meats, salt, alcohol and cheese is a wise choice. So perhaps prior to undergoing surgical treatments, stick to home remedies and see if a healthy lifestyle will promote healthy veins.
