Herbal Treatment for Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are a common issue for women who are pregnant, or for those that are over the age of 50. Over 50 percent of women and 40 percent of men have spider veins, varicose veins, or other vein-related issues. When varicose veins start to occur, they can often be aesthetically displeasing. Over time, varicose veins can become painful and bothersome, causing the legs to feel heavy and the veins to bulge. For many men and women that suffer from leg pain in Pompano Beach, herbal remedies can help to sooth the pain that develops as a result of varicose veins during pregnancy.

Certain herbal remedies contain chemicals that can help the veins form a better elasticity, and prevent the blood from pooling and causing every day pain. Some herbs and tonics can be found at the local drug store, while others you may have to order or get from the local health food or vitamin store that carries them.

  • Horse Chestnut is just one of many herbal remedies that can be used to tighten tissue and treat varicose veins.
  • Witch Hazel is an astringent that can be found in most drug stores that can also be used as an anti-inflammatory in conjunction with horse chestnut in a lotion to be applied to the varicose veins.
  • Prickly Ash is another shrub that can be used to help treat poor circulation and varicose veins. It can be infused in a tea or applied topically.

It is important to consult with your physician prior to beginning any herbal treatment regimen, especially if you are pregnant.
