Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Spider Veins

docSpider veins are tiny swollen blood vessels which are easily discernable through the skin. They appear like a web of thin and twisted purple or red, jagged lines and are most often seen on the inside of the legs, ankles, face and thighs.

This condition usually occurs in old age and is more common in women than in men. It is caused by improper or slow blood circulation, standing for long periods, heredity and hormonal changes. Spider veins not only detract from the appearance but are also very painful and itchy. They can cause the legs and ankles to swell and to feel hot and heavy. The delivery of blood and oxygen to the tissues is hindered and the removal of waste is delayed this can cause the skin to become thin, discolored and susceptible to ulcers. Here are some natural ways to treat spider veins.

Apple cider vinegar: Is a common home remedy for varicose veins, may also help to diminish the appearance of spider veins by increasing circulation to the affected area. Saturate a cloth with apple cider vinegar and apply it as a compress directly to your spider veins. Allow the cloth to remain in place for 15 to 20 minutes, and then remove. Repeat the process once or twice a day for at least one month, or until you can no longer see the veins.

Lose weight: Being overweight will put more pressure on your legs leading to spider veins so loosing will help take off much of the pressure on your legs and get rid of spider veins.Antioxidant: More antioxidants in your diet will help you maintain strong & healthy veins.

Parsley: Is rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that encourages the production of collagen and aids in cell repair and reproduction. It also contains rutin, which plays a key role in strengthening the capillaries and hence is very useful in reducing symptoms of varicose veins. Boil a handful of chopped fresh parsley in one cup of water for five minutes, remove from the heat, cover and allow the solution to cool to lukewarm. Then strain the solution, add one drop each of rose and marigold essential oils. Put the solution in the refrigerator for several minutes, using a cotton ball, apply the solution to the affected area. Do this daily for several months to see positive results. Also, try to eat raw parsley as often as you can.

Lemon essential oil: Lemon oil is known to strengthen the capillary walls in your blood vessels. Mix 2 to 3 drops of lemon oil with carrier oil (such as jojoba, coconut, almond oil). Massage the area with the protruding veins a few times a day. Lemon essential oil is very versatile and is one of the recommended essential oils to have in your home.

Oranges: The vitamin C present in oranges is very crucial in the treatment of spider veins.  Vitamin C is required to strengthen the blood vessels and improve the circulation of blood. It is also an excellent antioxidant which protects the tissues from damage. Eat oranges everyday on a regular basis.

Guavas: Eating guavas everyday can improve spider veins considerably. Guava is rich in vitamin C which is essential for the strength of the blood vessels and it has large quantities of vitamin K which improves blood flow to the tissues and prevents discoloration. It also contains lycopene which is an antioxidant that protects the cells and tissues from toxic damage. Eat guavas as much as you can to strengthen the capillaries and veins and to improve the blood flow. If the circulation of the blood increases, it will not stagnate in the blood vessels and cause further harm.

Mustard oil: Mustard oil is very good in stimulating the blood circulation and in strengthening the valves. Massage twice a day all the affected areas. You will notice a difference in the spider veins very soon.

Castor oil: Castor oil has anti-inflammatory and stimulating properties. It stimulates the blood circulation and increases the flow of blood to the blood starved tissues. It prevents the blood from clotting in the veins and reduces their swelling. Massage the affected areas with warm castor oil twice a day. Cover the areas with warm flannel. The swelling will subside and the pain and itching will abate. You will feel relieved when the pressure is lifted off the blood vessels.
