Varicose veins are a problem that affects
much more than the outward appearance. They are dilated veins which can become damaged,
and end up not functioning correctly, causing blood clots, pain, discomfort, and a feeling
of heaviness, especially on your legs. Women are generally more affected by this problem,
especially older or pregnant women, due to their hormonal fluctuations. However, men
can also develop varicose veins. Varicose veins appear due to several different
factors, from genetics to bad habits. When they start to appear, they may itch and the
area around may be sensitive. People who have to stand for long periods of time are the
most affected by these symptoms. Before you start to consider drastic measures
such as surgery, try this natural treatment that can greatly relieve the symptoms caused
by varicose veins: The recipe we’re talking about calls for two ingredients that are great
for your circulatory system: garlic and olive oil. This combination, if used frequently,
can help you keep your circulatory system healthy. However, to get the best results, it is recommended
that you start this treatment as soon as possible, whenever you start to see varicose veins appearing.
You should also pair this natural treatment with exercise and a balanced diet. Here’s the recipe: Ingredients
12 garlic cloves; ½ cup of olive oil (100 grams);
The juice from 1 lemon; 1 glass jar. Instructions First, peel the garlic cloves and cut them
in half. Crush them using a mortar and pestle until they form a paste.
Add that paste to the jar with the olive oil and lemon juice, and close it well.
Let the mixture sit overnight, in a cool, airy place.
The next day, remove the ingredients from the jar using a wooden spoon and strain them. Here’s what you do to apply it:
Take a nice amount of the mixture and apply it onto the affected area with circular motions.
Apply pressure with your fingertips in circular motions in order to stimulate the circulation
in the area. Let it sit for an hour then rinse it off using
cold water. It is recommended that you repeat this procedure
three times a week, preferably at night. The appearance will gradually improve and
the symptoms will lessen, so make sure you stick with the treatment.
