Holistic Healing For Varicose Veins Pt 3
Holistic Healing For Varicose Veins Pt 2Varicose veins are a problem that with time and effort will respond to
holistic approaches to pain relief and healing. The best solution here is to look to natural remedies to help ease
the pain and to look to preventative maintenance in order to keep the body of the sufferer as fit, healthy and
strong as possible.
Acupuncture and acupressure can be put into play for this condition. The areas to be worked on include SP 5, SP
11, BL 38, ST 32, ST 36 and CV 1. Be aware that these two holistic approaches will not improve the look of varicose
veins but they can prevent the condition from becoming more painful and from getting worse.
Aromatherapy is another form of holistic healing that works well fro sufferers of varicose veins. Take 12 drops
of the essential oils geranium and 12 drops of cypress and mix them with four ounces of a particular carrier oil
whether it be almond, sunflower or soy. Once thoroughly mixed, apply the mixture to the legs by stroking it in an
upward direction towards the heart.
However it is not wise to massage the essential oils directly onto the varicose veins. What you need to do is to
massage the oil in the vicinity of the veins as you gently stroke it over the affected areas of the skin. Oil of
rosemary or Rosmarinus officinalis when massaged with gentle fingers onto the varicose veins is able to encourage
circulation in a positive way due to the fact that it causes the capillaries to not contract but dilate.
Oils of chamomile and cypress are known as Matticaria recutita and they are effective at relieving discomfort as
well as soothing the inflammation and swelling that accompanies varicose veins. Color therapy can also be put to
use for those suffering from varicose veins.

The colors red and yellow can be used by way of being applied to the area where varicose veins are
present for a period of approximately half an hour on a daily basis. When an individual with varicose veins has
ulcers on their legs it is best to use blue light radiation applied to the legs for a period of 30 minutes and then
follow this up by applying ultraviolet light for 45 minutes. This should be done every single day for a period of
10 to 60 days.
A diet rich in fiber is recommended for sufferers of varicose veins. The recommended amount is at
least 30 grams per day in order to prevent the necessity of straining to pass stools. To incorporate more fiber
into your diet eat as much whole grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes to your diet as possible.
If you are suffering with back pain, try putting your legs up. Try resting them
on a chair, while you lay down on the floor. This will take the pressure off your spine, and also
helps keep your blood flowing.
When it comes to fruits, in particular consume cherries and blackberries as often as you can. These foods are
all rich in substances that prevent the development of varicose veins and also help to decrease the pain that often
accompanies them. Vitamins that should be eaten in plentiful supply by varicose vein sufferers include vitamins A,
B complex, C, and E.
