Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Varicose Veins
What Is Varicose Veins?
Varicose Veins - Basics
Varicose veins occur when valves that control the flow of blood through the veins become weak, causing blood to pool inside the vein. This causes the blood vessel to swell and contort, becoming visible just beneath the skin's surface. Varicose veins commonly form in the legs, with symptoms including veins that can be seen through the skin, leg cramps, mild swelling of the ankles or feet, discoloration of the skin where the vein is located and itching in the affected area. Some risk factors for varicose veins are being overweight, prolonged periods of immobility, family history and aging.
Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for varicose veins.
