Varicose Veins Treatment
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and swollen. They’re caused when the tiny valves in your veins stop working and are usually found on the legs and feet and can cause your legs and feet to become painful, ache and look unsightly with the veins appearing as blue or dark purple in colour.
Symptoms of varicose veins tend to be particularly bad in the warm weather or if you have been standing a lot, here are some things to look out for:
- The skin over the vein may become dry and itchy.
- Aching, pain, burning or throbbing in the legs
- Leg cramps
- Your legs and feet may feel heavy
- Feet and ankles becoming swollen
Varicose Veins Home Treatment
At Tower Health we offer natural remedies for varicose veins: Ex-Veins Leg Spray. This unique Swiss-formula spray helps to ease the symptoms of varicose veins by reducing inflammation, relieving itching and helps to improve circulation.
While you can’t really stop varicose veins from forming or worsening, avoiding standing for long periods usually helps to ease the symptoms. Exercising regularly increases circulation and can help you lose weight, both of which will have the knock-on effect of helping prevent and improve varicose veins.
