10 Remedies That Treat Varicose Veins Without Surgery!

Did you know that up to 50% of American adults aged 50 and older suffer from varicose veins.

Unfortunately, traditional treatment for varicose veins tends to be quite expensive. Thankfully, there are a number of things you can try right at home to treat the condition naturally. Without further ado, let’s explore 9 of them!

The incredibly versatile liquid works to treat varicose veins thanks to its ability to remove calcium deposits in blood vessels. This corrects poor circulation, which is a byproduct of varicose veins and a major cause of the condition’s discomfort.

#1 – Apple Cider Vinegar

If you rub apple cider vinegar on the effected area every day, within 2 weeks you should start to see visual results. 

#2 – Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper’s active ingredient, capsaicin, is another circulation booster. It also eases pain when applied directly to the affected area.

If you suffer from varicose veins, try getting lots of cayenne pepper into your diet. You can make a paste by mixing crushed cayenne with aloe vera juice. Apply the mixture directly to your shin. This method takes 1-2 months of daily use to start working.

#3 – Garlic

Garlic works to reduce the inflammation associated with varicose veins. This is thanks to the ingredient 1,2-DT. Squeeze plenty of garlic into your diet each day. You can also make a garlic cream by mixing a few minced cloves with a bit of alcohol. Apply this cream to the affected area 4 times weekly.

#4 – Butcher’s Broom

No, I’m not going to tell you to chop the affected leg off. Butcher’s broom is actually a herb containing ruscogenins – compounds that reduce inflammation and improve circulation.

You can buy butcher’s broom in supplement form or liquid extract. Follow the instructions on the bottle.

Note: If you are on high blood pressure medications, consult with your doctor before taking butcher’s broom. WebMD reports that reactions do occur between the two.

#5 – Witch Hazel

Witch hazel contains tannins and antistringent (contraction-inducing) compounds that help reduce the size of varicose veins. The Epoch Times recommends getting your hands on witch hazel in liquid form.

Soak a cotton sheet with the witch hazel and wrap it around the affected area. Then, lay your leg out flat in front of you. Stay like this for about a half hour. Repeat this daily.

#6 – Horse Chestnut Seed Extract

Horse chestnut seed extract contains the active ingredient aescin, which improves circulation. Aescin also relieves the leg swelling, itching and discomfort characteristic of varicose veins. You can buy horse chestnut seed extract in supplement form.

Do not eat raw, unprocessed horse chestnut seeds; they contain dangerous amounts of the toxin esculin.

#7 – Parsley

Parsley contains lots of vitamin C and rutin. Both work to treat varicose veins by boosting cell repair capabilities and strengthening capillaries – the structures that transport blood to your veins.

Get lots of parsley into your diet by juicing it

#8 – Red Vine Leaves

You know what I heard through the grapevine? Red vine leaves – also known as grapevine leaves – are super effective at treating varicose veins. In one clinical study, patients who took red vine leaf supplements daily had their varicose vein symptoms greatly reduced.

The supplement works by improving circulation and restoring protective nutrients.

#9 – Marigold

Rounding off this list, we have another anti-inflammatory herb that will relieve symptoms of discomfort and swelling characteristic of varicose veins. Get yourself some marigold paste and apply it to the affected area daily.

#10 – Gentle massage

Blood pooling in the veins is one major problem that exacerbates varicose veins. It causes the lax walls of the veins to expand and get twisted, impeding the blood flow further. Formation of blood clots is another risk. It always helps to keep the legs at a slightly elevated position while sitting and lying down to allow the venous blood to flow towards the heart. But massage is a more active way to increase blood circulation, although it should be administered very gently in people with varicose veins.

Massaging the legs with gentle upward strokes can smoothen out the twisted veins and accelerate the blood flow. Never use pressure directly on the bulging veins. Use olive oil or coconut oil for lubrication. You can add a few drops of the essential oils of peppermint or wintergreen for a soothing effect.
