The issue with varicose veins is quite common and the U.S Department of Health and Human Services reported that about 25 percent and 10 percent of men are affected by it.
This health condition is manifested by enlarged veins which occur close to the surface of the skin. They often appear in the calves and thighs as result of weakened walls or poorly functioning valves, which are responsible for regulation of blood flow.
The issue with varicose veins is very uncomfortable as it causes burning sensation, throbbing, tingling or heaviness in the legs, fatigue, pain, and restlessness. Many people are also concerned about the occurrence of bulging veins.
This article presents the story of TI who has been struggling with this issue for 20 years. TI was constantly looking for the reason why this happening is and found that capillaries are not spreading quickly. He drew a conclusion that they have spread over the past 3 months due to the long hours of standing and walking in flip-flops.
There are various triggers of varicose veins, including sitting, standing, wearing uncomfortable shoes (too high or too low heels). Nutrition is also an important factor and the prevention of weakening the vein wells heavily depends on the animal protein and vitamin C intake. Pregnancy is yet another trigger, especially second pregnancy.
Sugar and trans fats are known to cause inflammation and weaken capillary walls. Therefore, you need to avoid them.
On the other hand, the thing you need is the Horse Chestnut, an ornamental tree in the parks. Consider the following treatment:
- ½ cup of finely chopped carrots
- ½ cup of apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp. aloe vera gel
All you have to do is to put all the ingredients in a blender and mix well to create a homogenous paste. The amount of the ingredients depends on the area that needs to be coated, so feel free to adjust the amount according to your needs.
Apply the paste onto the affected area and secure it with a bandage. Let it work for half an hour before rinsing it off with lukewarm water afterwards. For optimal results, raise the legs upward while the paste works. Repeat the procedure on a daily basis for as long as you need it.
How it Works?
Carrots: abundant in antioxidants and widely used in many skin care products
Apple cider vinegar: works as anticoagulant and blood thinner, which makes it effective in preventing blood clots
Aloe vera gel: has anti-inflammatory properties
