Finally eliminate varicose veins thanks to aloe vera

Varicose veins are small dilated or inflamed veins that obstruct the return path of blood to the heart, just that, but they are very unsightly and many men and women suffer from them today.

As a general rule, they affect the legs, ankles and feet since they are the parts most distant from the heart and through which the blood has more difficulty to circulate due to a pure effect of distance.

Its color is around blue and purple, uncomfortable to the touch causing pain if you have been sitting or standing for a long time.

Why do varicose veins appear?

Women tend to suffer from varicose veins to a greater extent than men, however, they do not have a direct relationship with gender , but are mainly related to work occupation (for being in the same position for a long time, either sitting or standing) overweight or genetics.

In most cases the appearance of varicose veins is due to constant sedentary lifestyle and/ or tobacco consumption among others, but varicose veins can also appear due to hormonal imbalances, pregnancy and even the genetics of the affected person.

Another external factor that makes women more prone to the appearance of varicose veins are oral contraceptive treatments since these cause hypercoagulability in women due to estrogens.

Are varicose veins an aesthetic or health problem?

I have classified varicose veins as an aesthetic problem , since in principle their existence is normal in almost all people, although they will be more visible in some than in others and causing more or less inflammation and pain. That said, if we notice how our varicose veins grow and grow, we must act because in extreme cases, even surgical intervention may be required.

Of course, it must be said that the first step to prevent varicose veins from appearing or growing is to eat a balanced and healthy diet , avoiding alcohol and tobacco, doing moderate exercise and consuming lots of water, vegetables and fruits.

For women is this advice : Do not wear tight clothing and avoid heels as much as possible. I understand that it is easy to say but not so much to carry out but at least it reduces the time you wear heels and that type of tight clothing on the legs.
