Varicose veins may not be a huge health concern, many people simply don’t like having them, and feel self conscious showing their legs.
Not only that, they can become very irritable, often times causing itching, swelling, and leg pain. Fortunately, there are ways to stop this from happening.
Sure, minor surgery can fix varicose veins, but wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to take care of them on our own?
As with many medical problems, there are things WE can do to make those varicose veins disappear. One may not even have to leave their kitchen to find that veinless look they’ve been seeking!
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is an incredibly strong detoxifier, and helps improve our bodies’ circulation. If your body is circulating blood well, then those veins should go away fairly quickly.
Top 10 Home Remedies recommends taking two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in some water twice, daily. Hopefully you’ll notice a difference within the first few days!
Who knew parsley was chock full of vitamin C? The rutin in it helps strengthen capillaries as well, so eating fresh parsley will pay off in dividends, if you want to get rid of those varicose veins.
The following instructions are for applying parsley as a solution directly on the affected areas:
3. Olive Oil
To get rid of varicose veins you need to increase circulation in your legs, and a nice massage will do just that.
Simply mix some olive oil together with vitamin E oil, warm it up, and apply it to your legs. Massage your legs twice daily using this method, and your legs should look noticeably better in a month or two.
Studies show that garlic reduces blood pressure, increasing circulation in the body (noticing a pattern, yet?). Not to mention, garlic breaks up toxins in blood vessels.
While garlic should be apart of everybody’s diet, there are other things you can do to get the most out of the herb.
5. Witch Hazel
Sounds pretty scary, right? Witch Hazel is a plant that contains gallic acid, as well as several essential oils, making it great for reducing swelling.
All you have to do with Witch Hazel is soak a wash cloth in it, and rub it on the affected areas. You can also pour around 20 drops in a warm bath, and give your legs a good rub.
6. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne pepper is another herb that is packed with vitamin C. The bioflavonoids in it also assist in easing the swelling in varicose veins.
To treat veins with cayenne pepper, simply add a teaspoon of powdered cayenne pepper to cup of hot water, and stir. Drinking it two to three time a day for a month should improve the looks of your legs dramatically.
