Homeopathic varicose vein cures and treatments include vitamins, natural supplements, and items such as compression stockings. When these items are used alone or together, many people’s health has found relief from mild to moderate varicose vein discomfort using these remedies.
The most important vitamins for varicose veins are A, B6, C, E, and K. Some natural supplements include grape seed extract, butcher’s broom, horse chestnuts, and Japanese Pagoda tree extract.
Compression stockings are available over the counter and by prescription; prescription compression stockings are more expensive and more durable. Over the counter compression stockings are economical, but they are much less effective and should only be used for mild varicose vein discomfort.
Some medical procedures have been known to help or cure varicose veins; some of these treatments include varicose vein ligation, sclera-therapy, laser treatment, and radiofrequency treatment. With the exception of sclera-therapy, all of these treatments may cure varicose veins by cutting the damaged vein and removing the damaged part of the vein, or tying it off and reconnecting it to promote natural blood flow.
The difference in each of the varicose vein cures is the delivery of the incision, with varicose vein ligation considered the most traditional surgery. Laser procedures and radiofrequency treatments use methods that are basically described by their names to make the incision and cauterize the incision site.
Sclera-therapy uses a chemical to cure the varicose vein problem; this procedure usually works best for small veins. The sclerosant is injected into the damaged vein or lining of the vein causing the vein to close.
An Ounce of Prevention
Prevention, as the name suggests, can eliminate the need for varicose vein cures by cutting down on the occurrence rate in the first place. You can help prevent varicose veins by eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding sitting for long periods of time.
A well-balanced diet should include vitamin-rich foods such as broccoli, spinach, mango, carrots, papaya, kiwi, bananas, eggs, lean meats, fish, and nuts. The overall diet should also be low in sodium and fat, as well as rich in fiber.
Exercise is important for everyone, but especially for people with a family history of varicose veins. Exercise increases circulation and can help to maintain weight, which will ultimately relieve pressure to the veins. When sitting for long periods of time, bring relief to your legs by wearing compression stockings, stretching the legs, and standing or walking for brief amounts of time.
Most varicose vein cures have a good to excellent success rate, with 85-90% of patients enjoying a full recovery with no complications. Varicose vein cures that involve compression-only have also been known to have good success rates at between 60-75%.
