Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and visible veins under the skin surface. They are often painful, and have dark purple, red, or blue color. They appear as a result of different factors including age, pregnancy, genetics, straining, and prolonged standing.
However, the main culprit of varicose veins is impaired function of the small valves inside them.
These small valves prevent the blood from flowing backward, so if they are damaged or weakened, there’ll be nothing to stop the blood from flowing backwards and collecting in the veins. The result is enlarged and swollen veins – varicose veins.
Varicose veins are usually treated with the help of compression stockings or other compression techniques at the beginning. However, as the symptoms worsen, they can lead to other problems like feeling of heaviness in the legs, painful inflammation, and swellings.
They can come with spider veins and dilated capillaries which can further aggravate the condition.
One of the most effective natural treatments for varicose veins and inflammation includes garlic. This nutrient-dense vegetable stimulates blood flow, breaks down toxins, and eliminates them as waste from the body.
Therefore, if you consume raw garlic or take garlic supplement on a regular basis, your condition will be drastically improved. What’s more, the improvements won’t be just temporary, but long-term.
For faster results, apply garlic directly on your varicose veins.
Here’s how to prepare this Ayurvedic remedy for treating varicose veins.
- Finely grated garlic cloves
- Orange juice – 1/2 a glass
- Olive oil – 1 tbsp.
Mix all ingredients together, and let the mix stay for 12 hours.
