Varicose veins are twisted and swollen veins, just under the surface of the skin.
They are quite common and are in fact a disease of the superficial venous system.
Varicose veins usually appear on the legs, but can occur on other parts of the body as well.
Varicose veins usually cause some symptoms, such as: moderate pain, sores and blood clots.
Nevertheless, the question is: How to treat them naturally?
Well, we share with you 3 ways which have been successfully used in the Russian folk medicine.
1. Garlic Oil
Garlic Oil is well known for its ability to improve blood circulation and detoxify the waste materials from the blood vessels. It also reduces inflammation and eases the pain that might be caused by the varicose veins.
Here we share the recipe, so you can make your own garlic oil.
• 3 oranges
• 2 tbsp of olive oil
• 6 garlic cloves
First, you should chop the garlic and put it in a clean jar. In the meantime, juice the oranges and pour the orange juice into the jar, as well. At last, put 2 tablespoons of olive oil in it.
Mix all the ingredients together and let it stay for about 12 hours before applying and also shake it well before use.
Every evening, before you go to sleep apply a layer of the garlic oil on the varicose veins. Afterwards, wrap it with a plastic bag and a woolen cloth as well. Wash the treated area in the morning and wear something which will keep it warm and tight. You will get results after a few months, if you apply the garlic oil every night.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar will reduce the swollen veins and also detox your blood vessels, while improving the circulation. While choosing the right brand of apple cider vinegar, we advise you to buy organic in order to get the best results.
You should just soak a piece of cotton wool in apple cider vinegar and apply it on the affected areas for at least twice a day. You can also place the cotton wool over the area and tie it with a cloth or a bandage. The apple cider vinegar will treat the varicose veins thoroughly by shrinking them to a normal size.
3. Nettle Tea
While applying the above given varicose veins remedies externally on your skin, this one will cleanse your body from the inside out. The stinging nettle tea has plenty of vitamins (A, C, E, K and B) and also minerals (magnesium and zinc). So, all you have to do is follow this procedure:
Pour about 200 ml (7 oz) of water over a tablespoon of fresh nettle leaf. Put the water and the nettle in a pot and cook it until the water boils. Let the tea cook down, strain it and drink a cup before every meal, three times a day. You should drink the nettle tea for about eight months to get optimal results.
