Natural Spider Vein Treatment for Prevention of Varicose Veins

Most people can cut down the danger of growing varicose veins, or lessen its severity, by carrying out the following actions as preventions guidelines to varicose veins. The below guidelines can also help to prevent its reoccurrence.
  • Exercising on a daily basis. In order to prevent varicose veins an individual must take a 30-minute walk many times during the week. It will also be ideal if the individual participates in other forms of exercises, like cycling or jogging, which helps to strengthen the leg muscles and restore blood circulation. However one would need to check with the doctor before embarking on a fitness program to rule out other medical difficulties.

  • Do not stand in a particular place for long periods of time. If in a position where standing is a necessity, try to take frequent breaks of slightly elevating the legs while being seated for a few minutes every hour. Try to stand on the toe tips while standing and keep bouncing up and down on the toe-tips frequently during the hour. It is also ideal if the individual takes a walk. At the end of the day that has had many long hours of standing, raise your legs while being seated for about an hour.

  • Do not cross your legs when seated. Crossing the legs constricts the veins and can cause the blood flow in the leg to be affected.

  • Keep away from tight clothing. Clothes that cause blood restriction aggravate the risk of developing varicose veins.

  • If the individual is at a high risk of developing varicose veins or already has them, then wearing compression stockings can greatly minimize the consequences of varicose veins. The stockings must be worn before getting out of the bed each morning and must be worn throughout the day. Compression stockings are available in most medical supply stores and pharmacies.

  • High heels must be avoided as far as possible. Shoes with high-heels make the individuals use buttock muscles rather than the calf muscles, in order to walk. Thus high heeled do not promote blood circulation in the legs. Shoes that are either low-heeled or are athletic helps to strengthen the calf muscles and restore blood flow.

  • If the individual weighs more than the desired body weight, then cutting down the weight can bring down the risk of varicose veins. High body fat, especially in the midsection, can place pressure on the thighs and groin, thus causing the walls and the valves of the veins to weaken in the legs and groin.

  • Foods that can help to prevent varicose veins include fibrous food or high-fiber food, citrus fruit and also vitamin C supplements. According to some studies vitamin C helps to strengthen blood vessel walls.
