Helping Varicose Veins
What a sigh of relief I got recently from a lady who said she had been using Venaforce Horse Chestnut Tablets for the swelling due to varicose veins on her legs.
She said 'I have been longing for years to wear short skirts during the summer. Now I can because I am rid of those fat ankles that embarrassed me so much.' She was over-the-moon with the results.
Summer is here and we hope it is a good one after such a cold winter, so let us look at the blood circulation and how we can improve it. Varicose veins are little alarm bells for future problems but if we deal with them early enough their symptoms can be effectively treated.
Do not make the mistake of writing off varicose veins as an aesthetic flaw, because their unsightliness is just one aspect of this condition; varicose veins can also be an extremely bothersome and painful ailment. Moreover, if these veins bulge significantly, even a minor injury could result in excessive and dangerous bleeding.
I am inclined to believe that illness or disease results of disharmony. Varicose veins are an excellent example of this theory. Blood pushes itself upwards through the veins and where harmony is disturbed, pressure will cause the weaker areas of the veins to bulge, resulting in varicose veins.
Jobs which are sedentary or require long periods of standing, old age, being overweight, pregnancy and constrictive clothing can all be contributory factors. Ladies ought to be aware that it is unwise to sit with the legs crossed, as this will hinder the circulation of the blood.
It would be best if people became aware of varicose veins at their early stages - symptoms include a dull ache or heaviness in the legs. At this point, varicose veins symptoms can be easily treated with some vitamin E or extra calcium. And, of course, there are Horse Chestnut seed extracts (or tablets containing extracts of Aesculus seeds) such as A.Vogel Venaforce.
Other indications of varicose veins include swollen ankles, painful calf muscles and leg cramps. Sometimes these symptoms occur before or during menstruation.
