Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins, often appearing blue or dark purple.
They happen when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or to pool so the blood does not flow effectively
The veins rarely need treatment for health reasons, but if swelling, aching, and painful legs result, and if there is considerable discomfort, treatment is available.
A number of surgical and non-surgical options are available for Varicose Veins. The Ayurvedic treatment, with its effectiveness and negligible or zero side effects, is the most sought after option. Identifying the root cause Accurate diagnosis is very important for effective treatment.
According to Ayurveda, an imbalance of the Vata (wind and space) plays a pivotal role in Varicose Veins. The role of Rakhta (blood) and Pitta (heat) cannot be neglected either. Thus, restoring the Vata balance becomes a very important part of the treatment.
The Vata balance can be easily restored by following a healthy lifestyle and having an equally healthy and nutritious diet: Citrus fruit like Amla works miraculously to revitalise the fatigued and Varicosed vein.
