Home Remedies for Varicose Veins

I searched information on home remedies for varicose veins for my mother for a long time.

Although I had found various varicose veins treatments in drug stores that promised to get rid of unaesthetic varicose veins, I felt they were not for my mother.

I know how painful varicose veins can be, so I got very excited when I read one day about a natural treatment in "Health Through God's Pharmacy" by Maria Treben. The story was about a woman who cured her varicose veins with Marigold ointment.

I was so anxious to tell her mother about this wonderful natural treatment I found.

Imagine my surprise when she told me she had been using Marigold ointment for many years. She said that it didn't cured the varicoise veins, but the pain has decreased significantly.

From her point of view the main problem was the pain, not the cosmetic problem. Although it seems to me that their appearance worsens with time, my mother thinks that the problem is under control :)

We have another disagreement about the cause of painful varicose veins: my mother says they are a "legacy" from her mother, but I think intense physical labor was an important factor in her case.

Over time, when she had to work even more, pain became greater. She then appealed to other home remedies for varicose veins like cabbage leaves, burdock leaves, vine leaves or ivy leaves, but she didn't discontinued the Marigold ointment treatment.

Marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis) stimulate the cellular metabolism and help regenerate the tissue in depth.

Marigold ointment has a cicatrizing action and also antibacterial, tonic, anti irritating and anti inflammatory effects.

It helps to reduce vascular fragility and improves peripheral circulation.

It prevents leg swelling or heavy legs caused by long periods of strenuous activity, which is a cause for the appearance of varicose veins.
