Many women experience issues such as swollen and painful feet, capillaries, and visible veins. These valves usually stop blood flowing backwards through the veins, and when they are damaged blood can pool in the veins. These problems mean that the blood vessels are weakened, usually due to external, and sometimes due to internal factors.
Sometimes, the condition can become worse in just a few months, and sometimes, in a few years. It can often happen due to longer periods of standing. Moreover, the condition may be significantly aggravated due to the wearing of uncomfortable shoes, high hills, pregnancy, or malnutrition. Veins can weaken due to the consumption of sugar and fatty acids as they lead to inflammation.
Varicose veins can develop when small valves in the veins become weak. Varicose Veins are twisted and bulgy veins that protrude on the surface of the skin. Spider veins are similar, but less obvious. These blue and red tattoos like lines on the skin, as well as the varicose veins are commonly found in the legs located on the inside of the calf or thigh and occur primarily due to enlarged and weakened vein walls and faulty valves.
Under the pressure of gravity, they continue to enlarge, and in the course of time, they may become elongated, twisted, pouched and thickened. This leads to a painful and problematic condition that sometimes necessitates spider / varicose vein treatment.
The symptoms of Varicose Veins are:
- Appearance of spider veins
- Prominent veins (worsen during sitting or standing for long hours)
- Burning or itching of the skin
- Skin Colour changes
- Swollen ankles & calves
- Heaviness and fatigue in the legs
- Bulging veins
- Intense Pain
- Muscle Cramping
- Leg Throbbing
- Venous ulcers and bleeding
A large pool of patients having professions like chefs, beauticians, policemen, surgeons, dentists, field job salesmen, marketing professionals, gym trainers, actor/actress, models, defence personnel, sailors suffer from Varicose veins.
This is commonly observed in patients who have:
- Work involving long hours of standing/sitting
- Smoking/Tobacco Chewing
- Increasing age
- Heavy lifting
The consumption of high amounts of vitamin C prevents the weakening of veins.
Fortunately, you can naturally treat these issues, and this is how to prepare it:
- 3 Tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel
- ½ Cup of finely chopped Carrots
- ½ Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
Method of preparation:
Place all the ingredients in a blender or mixer, and blend them in order to prepare fine paste. If you need more paste you can double the amounts of ingredients used.
Apply the paste on the affected areas and cover it with a bandage, if needed. Leave the paste to act for half an hour and rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, keep the legs raised during this time. Repeat on a daily basis until you feel the improvements.
The beneficial effect of this natural remedy is due to its ingredients. Namely, apple cider vinegar prevents blood clots, as it can act as an anticoagulant.
Carrots are rich in antioxidants, which are extremely advantageous for the skin, and the aloe Vera gel has been appreciated for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties for ages.
