How to relieve swelling in leg varicose
If you know what varicose veins are witha deep anatomical point of view, the causes and mechanism of the occurrence of varicose veins. then it becomes clear that this is an almost incurable disease that can only be stopped surgically. How not sad, but true. First, varicose can disturb a young woman only as an aesthetic, cosmetic defect, but in the future, with age, the process progresses, and there are swelling, pain, heaviness in the legs, in addition, thrombophlebitis and the most dangerous - thromboembolism.
In this article we will talk about the treatment of varicose veins at home, however, the reader should understand that:
Conservative methods of treatment of varicose veins havemeaning only as a supporting therapy before and after surgery, no cream, no ointment, no lotion, can not help change the pressure in the deep veins of the lower extremities.
Wearing compression underwear with varicose veins. of course, has its positive, sufficiently effective effect, but also only as a preventive measure, to stop the progression of varicose veins and the further appearance of dilated veins (see treatment of varicose veins).
Variants of deception and cheating of patients with varicose veins
- "Personal phlebologist" and "no varicose veins"
I would like to warn our readers thatdid not fall on the websites of scammers with the advertised advertising on the Internet, which offers unique disks with a magic method of getting rid of varicose veins under the names "Personal phlebologist" and "Varicose is not" - this is the real trickery of gullible citizens. On these discs, in addition to exercises with varicose veins, there is no information about the treatment of varicose veins. Indeed, simple exercises help reduce the severity in the legs, relieve swelling, but it can be completely free of charge found on any site about varicose veins.
- Treatment of varicose veins with leeches
Treatment of varicose veins with leeches is also the mostdoctors consider quackery and cheating. Many patients, not knowing the essence of the disease, confuse varicose veins with thrombophlebitis and believe that with varicose blood should be "diluted", and leeches help in this. If a person has thrombophlebitis, then it is better to use safe drugs that promote blood thinning. And with varicose treatment with leeches may contribute to the development of allergic dermatitis, trophic ulcers, after bites often remain pigmented spots.
- Medical product "Botfort" or "Varifort"
The company "Healthy" advertises a medical product"Varifort" - is also a swindle of clean water, in advertising this falsehood, the cause-and-effect mechanisms of the occurrence of varicose veins are involved. The phrase "in order to eliminate the cause of varicosity - thrombi, it is necessary to remove the positive charge from blood clots and thereby dissolve them, at the expense of spherical glass balls located inside the boot" - otherwise you can not call delirium. Clots are not the cause of varicose veins, but rather, with prolonged varicose veins, complications may be thrombophlebitis, but thrombi sometimes form without varicose veins. And glass balls and biological electricity in the body have absolutely different physical properties.
Creams, ointments, lotions - it can help relieve pain, swelling, but not reduce the dilated veins
The most effective herbal remedy, helping to relieve fatigue in the legs, reduce swelling - is horse chestnut. Therefore, if you want to choose a cream, ointment fromvaricose veins, choose the remedies that include horse chestnut extract. Here are a few recipes for using this remedy to treat varicose veins at home:
- Grind as much as possible finely the fruit of the chestnut, thenmelt on a water bath pork inner fat and add a mixture of chestnut, in a ratio of 1/1. This composition can lubricate the dilated veins and varicose veins.
- Dry flowers of horse chestnut 50 g. Pour 500 ml. vodka, insist 3 weeks, drain. use this infusion follows 2 r / day for 30-40 drops before meals.
- Shred the fruits of chestnut, add alcohol, fromCalculation of 2 cups of alcohol 2 tablespoons of chestnut, insist 10 days, periodically shaking, strain. Take 20-30 cap. tincture 2-3 r / day before a meal, course of 20 days, then break 10 days and again repeat the course.
These are the recipes our ancestors used,when it was not possible to use plant extracts, which today can be found in many creams. So, for example, horse chestnut in different dosages is in the following creams, which can be purchased either in a store or in a pharmacy.

Doing fitness with varicose veinsit is better in a special compression underwear, which is produced today in the form of very beautiful stockings and tights. Doctors-phlebologists strongly recommend persons with a disposition to varicose veins or already existing disease to treat varicose veins with the regular performance of therapeutic and prophylactic gymnastics, which is easy to conduct at home.

The article is useful, topical. But somewhat pessimistic. It turns out that if there is a predisposition to varicose veins or there are stars and wreaths have come out, this will inevitably lead to surgery. Prophylaxis or not - the outcome is one. In my opinion, this is also one of the myths. At the initial stage of great importance are daily exercise, swimming, gymnastics, exclusion from the diet of harmful products, trays, contrast showers, compression underwear, decoctions and herbal tinctures, in particular, on the basis of chestnut, hazelnut, needle, etc. natural ointments, prepared at home. In general, active prevention, and throughout life. You can recover or minimize pathological changes.
I agree, but the fact of the matter is that very few peopledraws attention to the emerging "stars" and wreaths, until they make themselves felt pain or other discomfort. And no one, I'm sure, no one is involved in prevention at a young age, baths and decoctions, natural ointments, gymnastics, etc. Those who love themselves very much and can afford to devote so much time to caring for their bodies - yes, they can suspend the process. In the turmoil of the modern life of the urban philistine - it is almost not realistic, sad as it may seem ...
I have varicose veins only on oneright leg is already a long time since heredity and hard work that I want to probyvat to treat myself because it still does not hurt much and now I'm afraid the sense at least will be?
