Countless people will find themselves struggling with some form of venous disease or insufficiency at some point in their lives, whether these vein conditions are spider veins, venous ulcers, superficial phlebitis, or swelling of the legs due to vein problems or varicose veins. Though many of these conditions are without serious symptoms, others struggle with swelling, itching, fatigue of the legs, cramping, tingling, and leg heaviness due to veins that are not performing well. If you’re considering trying out natural varicose vein solutions, keep reading!
For some people, natural remedies such as some simple changes in lifestyle and alterations in their diet and activity with the addition of certain natural supplements might help to alleviate some of the side effects associated with varicose veins.
Some simple changes in lifestyle can help treat varicose veins that are causing discomfort and embarrassment. A loss in weight can do a lot to relieve pressure on the legs and veins as they try to pump blood to the heart without pooling. Those who live an especially sedentary lifestyle spending lots of time sitting at an office desk or at home should make an effort to take daily walks or runs or simply make sure to take more breaks during the day in which they can stretch their legs and help encourage blood flow.
Medical grade compression stockings can be worn to help encourage blood flow as well and to assist with the tingling and restlessness often felt in the legs of those who are suffering from a spider or varicose vein.
Many people would rather try natural vein solutions before they turn to surgical treatments for vein problems. There are several over the counter and prescription dietary supplements that are available for those who are looking to relieve the symptoms associated with varicose veins. Supplements such as “Diosmin” and “RELIEF” (Reflux Assessment and quality of Life Improvement with micronized Favonoids) are two such supplements which may significantly improve cramps, leg heaviness and general pain associated with vein insufficiencies.
In taking supplements as the main method for treating a varicose vein or other vascular diseases, it’s important to recognize that the results and effectiveness on a patient-by-patient basis are hard to determine and while some patients may see a significant improvement in symptoms, others may not. It’s always a good idea to schedule a consultation with a vein specialist at the Skin and Vein Center, to have your individual vein circumstances assessed and expert advice given for the best treatment and hope of healing.
