If someone from your family was suffering from varicose veins, you might be asking yourself if the condition is hereditary. The bad news is that it’s definitely possible, but the good news is that varicose veins are treatable with simple natural remedies.
Varicose veins can affect both sexes, although it mostly affects women. The condition usually appears in the late twenties. The main factors for varicose veins are genetics, the aging process, lack of exercise, hormonal and circulatory problems. Luckily, the condition can be easily treated with a natural remedy that can resolve the problem in no time.
Half a cup of carrots (chopped)
Half a cup of Aloe Vera pulp
Apple cider vinegar
Mix the Aloe Vera pulp and carrots in a blender, then add the ACV and mix until you get a homogenous mixture.
Apply the mixture on the affected areas and let it work for half an hour. Rinse with cold water in the end and repeat the process every day. Natural remedies are effective, but need time to work so being patient and consistent is of vital importance. Keep applying the mixture every day and you will see the results in a few weeks.
Besides the mixture, a daily massage around the affected areas (never directly on the veins) might also help you get rid of varicose veins. Start massaging your feet lightly and gradually progress towards your hips. Use your palms and avoid putting pressure with your fingertips. You can use cypress essential oil for this massage as it can reduce fluid retention and improve your circulation. Juniper essential oil can help as well as it is an excellent local stimulant. For best results, elevate your legs at a 45-degree angle while massaging them.
