Do Natural Cures for Varicose Veins and Natural Cures for Spider veins Exist? Minimally-invasive technology makes it easy to avoid surgery, but can you avoid seeing a doctor entirely?

Natural cures for varicose veins and natural cures for spider veins include:

  1. exercise
  2. weight loss
  3. compression stockings
  4. leg elevation
  5. Certain Supplements
  6. The efficacy of these interventions depends on a number of factors.

Are you looking for a natural cure for Varicose Veins and spider veins? The phrase “all-natural” has increased in popularity over the past few years, often used by companies advertising their newest product. Anything from pre-packaged deli meats, to hair care products, to yogurt are now touting their ingredients or processes as “all-natural.” What’s driving this trend? Consumers today are more keenly aware of what they’re putting into their bodies, and strive to eliminate chemicals or side-effects that are not in their body’s best long-term interest.  Chronic Venous Insufficiency – the condition that causes many varicose veins and spider veins – is extremely common. So many people have started to ask if natural cures for varicose veins and natural cures for spider veins exist. 

When it comes to treating unsightly and painful varicose veins, there are some natural varicose vein treatments that you can try as a first step. Vascular doctors will agree that working with a holistic approach to find a natural cure for varicose veins is a great start, but also acknowledge that they may not provide long-term solutions for every person. Here, we will provide some safe and natural varicose vein treatments, and suggest what the vein doctors at the Vein Treatment Center can do for you if these steps are not effective.

Spider veins can make you reclusive and give you social anxiety, especially during the summer. In this article, we discuss how sclerotherapy gives you summer ready legs so you can reclaim your self-confidence!

Who is Affected by Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

As we age, the natural elasticity of our vein walls decreases. Often, we also gain weight and become less physically active. The result of all of these factors can create what vein doctors call “venous insufficiency”, where the valves designed to keep blood moving forward begin to fail. This causes blood to pool in the vein, which is when you begin to see a large, bluish protrusion known as a varicose vein. Spider veins are similar in their origin, but are much smaller, thin and red, often resembling a spider’s web.

Even though we think of women as most often seeking varicose vein treatment, the condition also is common in men. In fact, approximately 50% of men and women over the age of 50 will experience varicose veins or spider veins. Since this is a common problem, you can see why people search for natural cures for varicose veins. Vein doctors recommend that the following steps are a great way to find natural cures for varicose veins and natural cures for spider veins. If they are not effective, we can recommend minimally-invasive, non-surgical spider vein treatment.

Exercise

Not only is exercise good for your heart, waistline, energy levels, and emotions, but it’s also great for your vein health. Sitting or standing for long periods of time without moving is one of the reasons why people develop varicose veins. This occurs because the lack of activity allows the already faulty vein valves to keep pooling blood, and makes it difficult for the veins to pump this blood back to your heart. For jobs that require sitting or standing for long periods of time in the same position, vein doctors recommend taking a quick break every 30-60 minutes to move your legs, march in place, or do a quick lap to get your blood moving.

Vein doctors also recommend low to moderate exercise on a regular basis in order to promote a healthy heart, lower blood pressure, and to regulate your hormones. Since varicose veins and spider veins primarily occur in the legs, vein doctors recommend calf raises, side-to-side lunges, and leg lifts as excellent ways to isolate leg muscles and promote good circulation. You can also add riding a bike, swimming, or playing tennis to your fitness regimen as natural varicose vein treatments.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

The more you weigh, the more pressure is put on your lower extremities, and the harder it is for your veins to pump blood back to your heart. Since your veins already have the difficult job of fighting gravity when they pump blood, maintaining a healthy weight gives your hard-working veins a little break. For overweight individuals, varicose veins will take longer to become noticeable, which means that by the time you can see it, the vein is often inflamed and irritated. This can lead to heavy legs, painful veins, and restless legs. The vein doctors of New York and New Jersey recommend that combining regular exercise with a healthy diet is a great way to regulate and maintain a weight that’s healthy for you.

Modify Your Diet

We know that exercise alone is not enough to help maintain a healthy weight and provide a natural cure for varicose veins. By consuming too much sodium, trans fats, alcohol, sugar, and caffeine, you are inhibiting your blood’s circulation and possibly increasing your blood pressure. Help out your heart and your varicose veins by focusing on foods that are high in fiber, such as fresh vegetables and fruits, and also whole grains. If you’re not sure where to start, search in your area for a local co-op or farm share, which will have a plethora of tasty, healthy ingredients for you to transform your eating habits. The vein doctors of New York and New Jersey at the Vein Treatment Center know that you can’t out-train a poor diet.

Supplements 

There are various supplements including collagen and horse chestnut seed oil that have been suggested as natural cures for varicose veins over the years. Unfortunately, there is no scientific evidence that any of these remedies are effective. Likewise, apple cider vinegar including compresses with apple cider vinegar is a popular home remedy without any basis in fact.

What If This Isn’t Enough?

These 3 steps are the start of a natural cure for varicose veins, and are also great ideas for improving your overall health. If you’ve followed these steps and are still not feeling relief from heavy, tired legs caused by varicose veins, it’s time for you to contact the vein experts at the Vein Treatment Center. Here, you’ll find vein doctors who are highly-trained in how science and medicine can best be combined with these natural steps in order to get your legs looking (and feeling!) great again with the best treatment for varicose veins.

Assisted by the newest and most high-tech procedures, the expertly-trained vascular doctors will create a treatment program that works best for you and your long-term health. Using minimally-invasive treatments such as sclerotherapy, Clarivein, and radiofrequency ablation, the Vein Treatment Center will work with you to develop a plan that is designed to be a long-term varicose vein treatment.
