How To Fight Varicose Veins

Aug 26, 2008
Women loves to cross legs and this is also the most popular way of developing varicose veins. Varicose veins are the veins found behind your calves that have distinct purplish color characteristics usually knotted that can be seen on the skin surface. Veins have valves like those that are found on the calves. They become varicose if these valves malfunction which will normally help in the circulation of blood from there towards the heart. By law of gravity, the blood that is supposed to go back up to the heart gets stuck or gets harder to be pumped up. When this happens, your veins get distended or will swell up. To fight this you need to improve your blood circulation.

1. Exercise: Working out or physical activities will help improve your circulation. Simple walking or jogging can help move that blood from and to wherever they had to. If you work out your legs for example, this will mean you will need more oxygen to that area thus the heart will push more blood towards that direction and deliver the oxygen it needs. As the muscles in that area takes up oxygen, the end result of metabolism is the emission of carbon dioxide which will be taken by the blood back to the heart then will be transported to the lungs to be oxygenated again. The cycle will repeat itself. So move that legs on and the blood will keep moving too.

2. Appropriate shoes: Very high heeled shoes can add to your glamour and height but they also add strain to your legs. If you don't strain your legs too much with low heeled shoes then your veins will not endure so much strain and work too. You need to know that everything when too much becomes a bad habit. If you really care about beauty and fashion, you better take good care of your body the way it is supposed to be taken cared of.

3. Have a break: If you have been doing something for very long, take a break. In the same manner, if you have been sitting too much, stand up and stretch that slender legs of yours and vice versa. Your body has limits and you need to be aware of this. So why don't you start thinking what your body really needs?

4. Weight loss: If you weigh heavier than normal according to height and age, chances are that you will give too much pressure on your leg. If you put pressure on your leg, this will also cause pressure and strain on to your veins. Losing weight does not also give you the benefit of not having varicose veins. You will also have healthy knees and bones of the lower extremities for that matter and so many more benefits as far as health is concerned.

5. Release pressure. If you got used to crossing your leg perhaps it is about time that you uncross those beauties up to release the pressure. This is done to avoid distention of the veins, which will eventually become one of the factors for varicose vein development.

Whatever you do to your body is entirely up to you. If you want to enjoy this beautiful blessing by taking care of it is your choice. After all, we are given such gift to love and cherish, not destroy.
