Varicose veins and natural cure

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins and natural cure


Avatar m tn Horse chestnut is the best-known natural treatment for varicose veins. It helps prevent swelling and strengthens capillary and vein walls. The usual dose is 300 mg a day. Side effects are pretty rare, but if you start feeling itchy or nauseous, taper back your dose. Nature’s Way has a widely available, quality product. Grape seed extract also supports the walls of blood vessels. Take 150 to 300 mg in divided doses over the course of a day. I like the Activin product.
1504778 tn?1321398245 It is packaged and distributed in the U.S. by Natural Factors. Look them up on the internet. Good luck. My legs are varicose free and I am 82 years old. You might get a quicker result than I did, but as long as you get a surgeryless cure, it doesn't matter how long it takes. As a bonus, your skin, hair and nails get a boost.

Avatar n tn My mum has pretty bad thread veins and also varicose veins on her legs, I have some small patches of thread veins, and I think I shall get varicose veins when I'm older so I don't know if that has anything to do with it?? Does anyone have any ideas?! Thank you for reading and for any help I get!!
Avatar n tn Now the skin at the tip seems unwilling to heal properly, and where it has tried, more brownish skin has formed. This is not raised, but I have also noticed that small varicose veins now seem to be branching from the corona out towards these freckles. Also the corona itself has recently become darker and dryer. All in all my glans is looking pretty unhealthy and I'm very worried. I'm not sexually active, and haven't been for a few years, now.
695915 tn?1228669552 Infarct disease is arterial supply side disease and leads to hypoxia in the tissues. I joked about varicose veins, but that is one of the most common forms of venous pooling. CCSVI is a venous outflow issue that causes pooling in the post capillary zone. Infarct causing TM is the equivalent of a stroke in the cord. It is an arterial event. You can infarct other major nerves outside the CNS in a similar way. If you infarct the brain, you don't get demyelination, you get TIAs or Strokes.
Avatar m tn Hemorroids and varicose veins are related conditions. I suffered the latter. At their worst I had a sac of purple stagnant blood on each ankle, The skin was paper thin and on the verge of ulcerating. It was a horrible sight. It was quite by accident that I found a cure. At some point I added liquid trace minerals to my drinking water because I didn't want to be bothered with pills. I also added BioSil (a bioavailable for of silicon).
Avatar dr m tn Other options include, again, radiofrequency energy, where a little needle is inserted into the muscles and a slight burn is caused. There is even a scarring agent that’s used for varicose veins that used for snoring called injection snoreplasty. It’s a shot that’s given into the mucous membrane to cause a small ulcer, and again, as it heals, it scars and tightens the palate. And, lastly, the laser can be used to trim the free, soft edges of the soft palate.

Avatar m tn I have noted that when I stand still they quickly become more visible, so moving around seems to be kind of a good thing. I haven't found any cure for penile varicose veins in the net yet, and some sites say that you can't cure them at all! Is this true? A researcher named Andrew K. Fletcher claims in some sites that his invention, Inclined Bed Therapy, has cured varicose veins from the legs of many people, but can this be trusted and could it help for penile veins also?
Avatar n tn I stopped the scratching and started using “Saforelle Fem” soap helped cure the skin and infection, which alleviated the itching. 4. I would say RSS is actually Scrotal Neurodermatitis which means it will cure when the issues in your head are solved. 5. Look inside your mind and you will find the answer. I have not seen a doctor or psychologist but I do believe in the power of the mind… it’s very powerful to do amazing and beautiful things, but it can also work against you.

Avatar n tn In extreme cases blood can actually flow backwards from portal circulation to systemic circulation, leading to varicose veins in stomach (gastric varices), esophagus (esophageal varices), and rectum (hemorrhoids). Ruptured varices bleed massively and are often fatal. Bilirubin levels may build up in the blood, causing jaundice and bright yellow to dark brown urine. Cirrhosis can also cause insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus.
Avatar n tn I recently gained about 10 lbs and immediately started to have health problems. Varicose veins and ankle swelling. My calves have become hard and painful and when I press on an ankle where it's swollen, the tissue dents and slowly reforms. I have no idea what's going on.
Avatar f tn Butcher's Broom Butcher's broom has a long history of traditional use for hemorrhoids and varicose veins. It is often used when there is underlying poor circulation in the veins. Horse Chestnut The herb horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum), like Butchers broom, is often recommended when there is poor circulation in the veins, or chronic venous insufficiency. In folk medicine, it is used to relieve symptoms such as swelling and inflammation and strengthen blood vessel walls.
Avatar n tn It was this belief that that immediately gave a massive leap forward towards my recovery, and the effects were immediate. I felt my blood flowing through my veins in my arms and hands and with that went some of the pain. It felt like a massive release when I believed that this was infact the source of my pain. It all started to make sense as I myself have deep down repressed feelings and as my stress levels increased, so did my physical pain.
Avatar n tn I took an antibiotic a few months ago and it went away briefly but came back so I know that antibiotics may not cure it at all. I am going to stick it out and see what happens and hopefully I won't have to resort to steroids to cure it all completely.
Avatar n tn - Sometimes after the firm-flaccid condition 'releases' for a bit, there is itching on the left and right penile shaft. This can be a symptom of varicose vein formation. - 50-100% of the time very firm or hard, while retracted to less than normal flaccid length. - Varicose and/or spider veins forming. - A 1/2" 'dimple' forming on the fatty pad of the groin, right where the shaft connects. - A feeling of the penis being 'pulled' in.
298579 tn?1192250448 Every article I've read says that they really don't know what causes this painful disorder and that there is no known cure. Typical treatment recommendation is (get this) "REASSURANCE"! You better believe they'd be offering more than "reassurance" if lots of men experienced this. = ) Can you tell that I've gotten really PO'd after realizing that what I have is a real disorder and how just how many women are going through the same thing as me?
Avatar m tn I eat a bananas every day and drink 2 glass of milk per day to try to keep my calcium and potassium up. I have noticed if I sleep with my legs spread apart as far apart as I can get them it keeps my legs from hurting when I sleep. I recently had a physical exam my cholesterol is 131, HDL 47, LDL 73, Triglycerides 94, VLDL 19, blood pressure 69 over 120. When I was young I road my bicycle 30+ mile every day.
Avatar n tn I have had similar pains as the rest of you. For just over a year now i have had shooting pains in my vagina and abdominal pains, both sides and sometimes in the middle. There is no pattern to it and can happen at anytime and anywhere. i went to my doctor who gave me an internal examination and said that my ovaries were 'slightly raised' (whatever that means) and said i should go for an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts.
Avatar n tn Many people swim in icy water, even in winter time, Scandinavians, Japanese, and thereby strenghten their immune system. Icy water will contract your veins and vessels, stopping short hemoragia and reparing broken vessels. It will also strenghten them for when you will have sexual intercourse again. Do it for a period of two to three weeks. As a whole, cold water will do good to your body, it will help your bodily energies and immune system focus on problem areas.
Avatar n tn 1 Witch hazel also is used to treat damaged veins. Its ability to tighten distended veins and restore vessel tone is employed in varicose vein treatment and is also valuable for bruises and sprains. 1 , 2 This hemostatic property of witch hazel is said to stop bleeding instantly and, if used as an enema, offers a rapid cure for “inwardly bleeding piles.” 3 In Europe, an alcoholic fluid extract is taken internally to treat varicose veins.
Avatar n tn However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control. Remember, too, that acute co-morbid events, ie: coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state.
1408746 tn?1283678948 I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion after complaining for many years of Chronic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs. My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus. I did, however have low ovarian reserve for someone my age. They finally listened to my pleas of pain in my pelvic and did a pelvic MRI on me only to discover I had Pelvic Congestion. I was dumbfounded.
Avatar n tn It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical... The aches come and go without warning and sometimes it's much worse than other times.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, I have been making detailed notes, documenting and recording mine and others symptoms for about 2 months now and reading these forums, comparing everything. Here is what I have: Can anyone relate to all or most of these points? 1. Great variations in size, texture, feeling: - 25-50% of the time is loose, normal size - Sometimes light-weight sorta like it has an internal sponge cake texture or filling. Has a basic structure and shape, almost 'normal.
Avatar n tn Don't sit still for too long. Hemorrhoids are a form of varicose veins, and exercise (walking) can help prevent & treat hemorrhoids. Don't lift heavy luggage. Lifting heavy items can cause or aggravate hemmorhoids. Use wheels on luggage, instead. Thanks for your thanks! :-) Concerned lady, ***@**** and website http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.
Avatar f tn My husband struggles with varicose veins and the pain seems very similar. Aching, and burning. Can't find a doctor that knows anything about it. It is VERY discouraging and they all say there is no pain. The location is behind my left knee and I have no other symptoms or signs of it anywhere else. Hearing others talk about their similar problems does help me feel not so alone in this!
