Although there are various factors that increase our risk of developing varicose veins, the biggest risk factor is genetics. So, if your mother had them, then chances are that you too will end up having them.
Typically, varicose veins make their appearance in your late twenties, and the condition can be worsened if not treated correctly. Other factors can also aggravate this condition and cause it to become much worse. Women run a higher risk than men, although men can also suffer from them as well.
On top of genetics, there are other common risk factors for developing varicose veins:
- Circulation Issues
- Standing or sitting for long periods of time
- Hormonal problems
If left untreated, or unmanaged, there are rare complications associated with varicose veins that can cause you pain and discomfort: ulcers, blood clots, and bleeding are the most common. Not to mention that varicose veins also are cosmetically unappealing.
Thankfully, you can use the following all natural and very effective solution which will help prevent and alleviate the discomfort associated with varicose veins.
- Prepare the following:
- ½ cup of Aloe Vera pulp
- Apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup of carrots
Chop the carrots finely, and then place in a blender. Next, add the Aloe Vera pulp and blend until it becomes a smooth, and homogeneous mixture. Then, add apple cider vinegar until it becomes a creamy mass.
Store in an easy to use container.
Apply the mixture to the affected areas of your legs, and relax them, preferably while elevated, for around half an hour. Wash the mixture off with cold water once you are done. You will be surprised at how quick and visible the results are for this treatment. If continued, this treatment will completely resolve the issue over time.
If you use this treatment to massage your legs, rather than applying directly to the veins, starting at your feet and slowly moving towards the hip area. Press gently, and elevate your legs at a 45-degree angle while massaging the mixture into your legs. Add essential oil, such as juniper, which works as an excellent local stimulant, or cypress oil that reduces fluid retention while helping circulation.
