Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen and visible veins under the skin surface. They have dark purple, red, or blue color and are usually very painful.
They appear due to different factors including age, pregnancy, genetics, straining, and prolonged standing.
The main function of these small valves is to prevent the blood from flowing backward, so if they are damaged or weakened, there will be nothing to stop the blood from flowing backwards and collecting in the veins. The result is varicose veins.
The main treatment for varicose veins is the use of compression stockings or other compression techniques. However, symptoms can get worse and patients are left with the feeling of heaviness in the legs and painful inflammation and swelling can also appear.
Spider veins and dilated capillaries occur which can further aggravate the condition.
One of the most effective natural treatments for varicose veins and inflammation includes garlic. This vegetable stimulates blood flow, breaks down toxins, and eliminates them as waste from the body.
Therefore, consuming raw garlic or taking garlic supplements on regular basis will improve your condition drastically. Moreover, the improvements will be long term, not only temporary.
For faster results, apply garlic directly on your varicose veins.
