Varicose veins are usually a genetic condition, meaning that if your mother has it there’s a high chance you’ll have it eventually. It’s not a 100% chance, but the risk is higher. They usually appear in the late twenties and if left untreated, the condition worsens as time passes by. Men can get them too, although not as often, but there are cases of men suffering from this condition as well.
There are many factors which contribute to the appearance of varicose veins such as:
- Lack of exercise
- Hormonal changes
- Circulation problems
The good news is that there is a natural and effective solution to counteract the discomfort that varicose veins cause you. A mixture of aloe Vera, carrots and ACV can do wonders for you and we’ll show you how to prepare this amazing remedy.
Here’s what you need:
- Half a cup of carrots
- Half a cup of Aloe Vera pulp
Add the chopped carrots and aloe vera in a blender and blend them until smooth. Start adding ACV, mixing continuously until you get a creamy texture. Once you’ve prepared this remedy put it in a small container and use it when necessary.
How to use it
Apply the mixture on the affected area and put your feet up for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water when you’re done and repeat the process until you feel better. Soon you’ll notice significant improvements and as time passes by your varicose veins will become a problem of the past.
You can also try massaging your feet and legs, but never directly on the areas with varicose veins. Start at the feet and move gradually to the hips, without applying too much pressure. Use the palms of your hands and avoid exerting too much pressure with the fingertips. You can use cypress essential oil, it’s excellent for massage because it helps reduce fluid retention and improves circulation. Juniper essential oil is another excellent option because it is a great local stimulant. For best results, keep your legs elevated at a 45 degree angle while you perform the massage.
