Varicose veins of the leg

What are Varicose Veins

A common problem affecting the legs is that of varicose veins. In simple terms, varicose veins are enlarged or swollen veins. For those who don’t understand what veins are, let me explain. Veins are blood vessels that perfom the function of returning the blood from various body parts back to the heart. This blood is devoid of oxygen. It is bluish in colour. That is why varicose veins often appear bluish in colour.

How do Varicose Veins occur?

Varicose veins develop with age. It is more common in old people. At the same time, those who have to stand still for long hours are at increased risk. When we stand for long time, the blood stagnates in the legs. The normal pumping mechanism of the body weakens over a period of time. It becomes less effective with age. Therefore the body is unable to push the blood upwards to the heart. This causes the veins to swell and become tortuous. This causes pain or a feeling of heaviness in the legs. Some people even develop ulcers in such veins.

Treatment of Varicose Veins

Treatment of varicose veins in allopathic system of medicine is rather disappointing. The only thing that allopathy can offer is surgery. For those who are not willing to go in for surgery, allopathy has just general advice on management of varicose veins. The general precautions are that one should not stand still for too long. One should keep moving one’s legs if one has to stand for some length of time. Also, while sitting or lying down, the legs should be elevated a bit. Wearing tight stockings is also of help. Exercising or walking can help improve blood circulation, thereby improving the varicosities. Losing weight and keeping it within one’s advisable weight limit is also helpful.

Homeopathic treatment for varicose veins

When it comes to homeopathic treatment of varicose veins, one can confidently say that the homeopathic treatment of varicose veins is much more successful as compared to the allopathic treatment. The homeopathic medicines work by improving the blood circulation in the body and specially the legs. At the same time, the valves in the veins of the legs are strengthened. This means that the valves are able to perform their function optimally. This does not allow the blood to stagnate in the legs or the lower part of the body. Over a period of time, the blue discoloration and the swelling in the veins disappears.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for varicose veins

Some homeopathic medicines have been found to be very effective for treating varicose veins. These medicines not only relieve pain and the heaviness, they also improve the elasticity of the veins. The swelling reduces.

Here are the 5 best homeopathic medicines for varicose veins-

  • Hamamelis

  • Pulsatilla

There is sometimes the need to prescribe a constitutional medicine. Such a medicine varies from patient to patient and may have nothing to do with varicose veins. The medicines mentioned here are those that are based on therapeutic indications. That is how this list of 5 best homeopathic medicines for varicose veins is intended to be.
