Spider Leg Veins

By Aneron Kepasil

Varicose and spider veins are common medical complaints that result when blood flow from outlying parts of the body back to the heart becomes compromised. Veins in the leg are the most commonly affected, particularly on the back of the calf. These veins contain a series of leaflet valves that allow only upward blood movement. Transport of blood up the leg to the heart proceeds via ladder-like steps through this series of valves. Varicose and spider veins result when vein walls develop poor tone, causing valve malfunction. Blood then stalls out on its upward journey and may even move down the leg. Valve malfunction in smaller vessels produces spider veins. In larger ones, varicose veins result. The characteristic color of varicose and spider veins, observable only for veins near the surface, derives from the bluish-red tint of oxygen-depleted venous blood.

Natural spider vein treatments include eating a high-fiber diet, maintaining healthy body weight, exercising, taking adequate quantities of vitamins E and C, refraining from sitting or standing for extended periods of time, not crossing one’s legs upon sitting, avoiding overexposure to sun and cold, and wearing compression stockings and loose clothing. All helpful spider vein treatment approaches, but not enough.

Some individuals are simply predisposed to developing varicose veins in the legs. Researchers found that some individuals are born with weak valves in the legs or not enough valves in the legs for proper blood flow and circulation.

Fortunately, there are natural remedies for improving spider veins. Some of these are herbal products such as horse chestnut, butcher’s broom, and ginkgo biloba that may be taken in pill form. A cloth soaked in witch hazel or apple cider vinegar and pressed onto the legs reduces swelling and discomfort. This is because both act as astringents to tighten the blood vessels closest to the skin’s surface. Spider veins also respond to exercise. Calf raises, swimming, walking, and cycling all assist the blood back to the heart, thereby reducing excess pooling in the veins.

Natural treatments that contain high levels of anthocyanidins and anti-oxidants will help strengthen the smaller blood capillaries in the body. The bilberry plant is one form of varicose vein treatment . So, if you choose this strange looking plant as your varicose vein treatment , be advised that bilberry can bring on skin rashes, stomach aches, and drowsiness. Be advised that over use of bilberry as a tea or otherwise can have serious consequences.

Another natural product for the treatment of varicose vein removal is Venovil. Venovil is 100% natural remedy that helps with symptoms related to varicose and spider veins. The different ingredients have anti-inflammatory, coagulant and antioxidant abilities. This is a non prescription supplement that contains natural ingredients proven to be effective during clinical studies for the varicose vein removal.
