It is important to address the topic of even lighter symptoms before varicose veins are accompanied by pain, heaviness, and itching. Some of the ingredients that one can easily find in one’s kitchen can become excellent allies to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and thus improve the flow of blood.
The Sympa team presents you with eight simple but effective methods to treat and prevent the progression of varicose veins. Do not forget to read the bonus at the end of the article.
1. The cider vinegar
With its anti-inflammatory properties, cider vinegar is an excellent treatment against varicose veins as it helps reduce swelling and improves blood flow.
Immerse a cotton ball or piece of cloth in cider vinegar, diluted with the same amount of water.
Apply it to the affected veins and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes.
Rinse with clear water.
Repeat the process twice a day.
You can also apply apple cider vinegar to your skin and gently massage the affected area. Do this routine every day before going to bed and then the next morning until you see positive results. Just avoid exerting too much pressure as you mass these areas.
2. Garlic, orange juice, and olive oil
Garlic contains a compound called allicin, which helps prevent blood vessels from catching fire. It is also used to eliminate toxins from your body and to improve your overall health. Garlic works wonderfully in combination with orange juice and olive oil.
Crush six cloves of garlic and mix them with the juice of three oranges recently pressed.
Add two tablespoons of olive oil to the solution.
Let stand for about 12 hours before using.
Apply the mixture to your veins and mass for 15 minutes with circular motions until your skin has absorbed everything.
Repeat this process every day.
You can also wrap the affected area with tissue and let it sit for 15 minutes to reduce vein size.
It is also recommended to add garlic to your daily diet.
