By Dr. Shrikhrishna, Homeopathy

‘Varicose Veins’ is a common problem that affects the legs of a person as the veins become swollen or enlarged. The veins are blood vessels which perform a very crucial function of ensuring the flow of blood from the different parts of the body to the heart. In most cases, this blood lacks oxygen which is why the veins appear to be blue in colour.

Varicose veins occur in the superficial veins of your leg. In most cases, these veins cause immense pain while indulging in any physical activity. In severe cases, it can also cause swelling, eczema and thickening of the skin.

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.
