Varicose veins is a condition which occurs whenveins just under the surface of the skin are swollen and enlarged. This problem usually affects women more than men, and is caused by numerous factors such as obesity, prolonged standing, age, genetics or pregnancy. The condition is mainly an aesthetical problem, but it can also be a sign of cardiovascular problems.
In the past, varicose veins were treated with compression stockings. However, although they reduced the appearance, the compression stockings never treated the problems that arose as the condition progresses such as inflammation and swelling of the veins. Furthermore, varicose veins sometimes are accompanied by the so-called “spider” veins and dilated capillaries which further complicate matters.
One of the best ways to reduce the inflammation and treat the problem is to use garlic, a vegetable with powerful medicinal properties that can eliminate toxins in the body and improve your overall health. By including the vegetable in your daily diet or taking it as a supplement, you can resolve numerous health problems including varicose veins. Here’s a recipe for a garlic mixture that will reduce the appearance of the veins:
½ a glass of orange juice
A few garlic cloves
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Mix the ingredients in the blender, then transfer it to a jar and keep it in the fridge for 12 hours. Afterwards, rub it on the varicose veins in circular motion until it’s completely absorbed into your skin. Next, wrap the area with a warm towel, then keep it on for 15 minutes before rinsing with water. Repeat the process a couple of times a day and you will be amazed by the results soon!
