Homeopathic Remedies For Varicose Veins at Home Treatment

Varicose veins is the condition in which the veins of legs and calves get enlarged and twisted due to blockage or prolonged pressure. The swollen veins appear close to the surface of the skin. The factors which can aggravate this condition include obesity, standing or sitting for long hours, menopause, constipation, use of birth control pills, abdominal tumors, prior groin surgery, liver diseases, etc. 
The symptoms of the disease are leg cramps, itching, leg sores, restlessness, swelling, heaviness in the legs, tingling, throbbing or burning sensation, fatigue, and pain. Opting for surgical or medical treatments can take a toll on your pocket. Here are some inexpensive home remedies for varicose veins which you can try to reduce the discomfort.


1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is one of the best treatments for varicose veins. It improves blood flow in our body and also cleanses it. Take a bandage or a gauge and dip it in the apple cider vinegar. Apply it to the affected area.

Or else, apply ACV on your leg and gently massage it in upward direction.
Alternatively, take a glass of water and add 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar to it. You can also add honey to it. Drink this twice a day for at least one month for better results.

2. Cayenne Pepper

To ease the pain, use cayenne pepper. It is rich in bioflavonoid and vitamin C which helps in better blood flow. Add 1 tsp of cayenne pepper powder to a glass of warm water. Have this daily, 3 times a day for a few months.

3. Olive Oil

Olive oil is very essential for repairing damaged blood vessels. Massaging with this oil improves the circulation of blood. Just take a little oil and heat it. Massage this hot oil gently to your legs or the affected area in upward motion. Do this twice, everyday. You can also mix vitamin E oil with olive oil for effective results.

4. Garlic

This is one of the best home remedies for varicose veins. Garlic reduces inflammation and maintains proper blood circulation in the body. Add as much garlic in your diet as you can.

You can directly apply the paste prepared by blending a few garlic cloves on the leg to reduce the pain and swelling.
Alternatively, take 6-7 garlic cloves and slice them. Put them in a clean container. To this, add juice of 2-3 oranges and 2-3 tbsp of olive oil. Let it rest for a day. The following day, take the container and shake it well. Take a little amount of solution and rub it on the affected area and massage gently. Wrap it with a cloth or a gauge afterwards. Repeat this process daily for a few months to notice changes.

5. Citrus Fruits

Eat citrus fruits such as oranges, lemon, etc., that contain diosmin and hesperidin. These compounds provide strength to the capillaries and support lymphatic flow in the veins, thus giving you relief.

6. Cabbage

Cabbage is well-off in vitamin A, B, C, E, K, potassium, sulfur, magnesium, and lots more. The sulfur content in this veggie destroys ferment in the blood. All you need to do is take a cabbage and put it in a blender. Add enough water to make a paste. Apply the resultant paste on your veins and cover the area with a cloth or bandage. After 1 or 2 hours, remove the bandage or cloth and wash off.

7. Bay Leaves and Olive Oil

Olive oil is a natural lubricant and bay leaves contain lots of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that are essential for treating ache, swelling, and blisters caused by varicosities. All you need to do is mix 3-4 bay leaves with 4-5 tbsp of olive oil. Heat the mixture for some time so that the properties of bay leaves get infused in the oil. Let it cool down and strain afterwards. Apply this on the affected area twice a day, regularly.

8. Tomatoes

You can use both green and red tomatoes for the treatment of varicose vein. You will need 1 or 2 tomatoes (depending on the size of the affected area) and bandage. Cut the tomatoes in thin round slices. Place it over the painful veins. Tie a bandage over it and let it be there for 4-5 hours. Do this every day for a few weeks to cure the pain naturally.

9. Epsom Salt Bath

Take some Epsom salt and mix it in warm bath water. Bathe with this water or soak your legs for sometime in the water. This helps improve blood circulation in the body and hence, reduces the pain and inflammation.

10. Fuller Earth’s Pack

This remedy does not treat varicose vein but provides relief in swelling and inflammation. To make a pack, just take 2-3 tbsp (or more, according to the size of the affected area) of fuller’s earth powder and add enough water to make a paste. Apply a thick layer of it on the affected part. Leave it to dry. Once it dries, wash it off.

11. Balanced Diet

Eating a healthy diet is essential for strengthening the vascular system. A diet which includes proteins and vitamins (especially C and K) helps in the proper flow of the oxygenated blood. Also, add a wide variety of vegetables, whole grains, and fruits in your daily diet.

12. Ice Pack

To reduce the swelling and ease inflammation, just apply ice on the affected area. Wrap some pieces of ice in a towel or cloth and rub it gently over the swollen part for some time. Repeat this twice or thrice a day, daily.

13. Hot and Cold Compress

Apply alternate hot and cold compress on your legs to get relief from swelling. For this, you can either use compression bags. If they are not available, just use old plastic bottles.

Alternatively, take two buckets and fill them with cold and hot water respectively. Soak your legs in each of them for 20-30 minutes. You can also add salt to it, to reduce the pain.
