Varicose veins, treatment with folk remedies. The best recipes for oral administration, external treatment

According to statistics, almost 85% of women know firsthand what varicose veins are. Men are less likely to suffer from varicose veins than women - 66%, but this figure sounds terrifying. Recently, such a pathology has been found in the young population, even in schoolchildren. Therefore, we could not stand aside either. What is varicose veins, treatment with folk remedies, how the disease develops, its symptoms and much more will be described in this article.

What causes varicose veins to develop?

The enlarged veins in the legs are called varicose veins. The pathology consists in a violation of the normal activity of the venous valves, which leads to reflux (reverse blood flow). Most often, people suffer with congenital pathology of weakness of the venous network (low elasticity or valvular insufficiency).


If we consider the disease at the cellular level, then we can say that varicose veins is a disorder of the physiological balance between collagen cells of muscle fibers and cells of elastic fibers of the venous wall. That is, reduced elasticity of the venous wall or venous valves, unable to pass blood in sufficient quantities from the extremities to the heart.

The first violations occur when blood flow through the veins slows down. This can be due to various factors:

  • spending a lot of time on your feet;
  • high heels for women, uncomfortable shoes for men;
  • smoking;
  • low physical activity;
  • pregnancy;
  • excess weight, etc.

These external factors lead to expansion and deformation (knotty).

Simply put, varicose veins are caused by a malfunction of the valves within the peripheral veins. This leads to an imbalance in blood flow, which allows blood flow in both directions. The acting force of gravity causes blood to accumulate in the peripheral veins, stretching their walls, which is why varicose veins look knobby, bulging, and irregular in shape.
