Understanding Varicose veins

The main symptom of varicose veins includes very obvious, misshaping veins, particularly on the legs. Such a person may also feel pain, heaviness, swelling, as well as aches in the legs. At times, there may be discoloration, swelling, or ulcers around the ankle area.

Complications associated with Varicose Veins

It is very common these days that a patient is not much aware of the changes in their body which is why we cannot not foresee this disease. We tend to avoid noticing the early signs like mild bulge which leads to complications like ulcers, bleeding, damage to Heart leading to heard diseases, Lumbar disc bulge, and osteoarthritis of knee

Diagnosing Varicose Veins

Ayurvedic approach of diagnosing a disease is very unique and different from modern medicine. An Ayurveda Doctor examines patient and disease both for confirming the diagnosis and status of disease.

  • Examination: The medical personnel will examine the legs and visible veins. You will be expected to sit or stand while the diagnosis is carried out. You may also be asked about the symptoms or pains you are feeling.
  • Ultrasound test: An ultrasound test may be carried out to check the flow of blood. This consist of a non-surgical test that makes use of high-frequency sound waves. This gives the medical personnel a closer look at how the blood in the veins is flowing.
  • Angiogram: An angiogram may also be used to further evaluate the veins. During the angiogram, a special dye will be injected into the legs by the medical practitioner. X-rays are then taken. The dye will be seen on the x-ray, providing the medical personnel a clearer view concerning the flow of blood.

Tests like an angiogram or ultrasound will help to confirm that a blockage or a blood clot is not responsible for the swelling or the pain felt in your legs.

What causes varicose veins in legs

Varicose veins occur when the veins become dilated, enlarged, and clogged with blood, this type of ailment is usually painful and the skin around the area became red or bluish-purple in color which may even appear raised or swollen. 

Our veins consist of one-way valves, which prevent blood from flowing backward. The moment these valves stop functioning properly, blood will start clogging in the vein rather than flowing towards the heart. Since the legs are farthest from the heart it becomes the most easily affected site, once the veins start malfunctioning, blood will find it harder to flow upward. Hence, clogging begins to occur and he veins will become dilated, and enlarged.

Some possible causes for varicose veins are:

  • Chronic heart valve conditions
  • Menopause
  • Pressure along the midsection of the body, particularly the abdomen
  • Obesity – Added body weight increases the pressure on the legs
  • For pregnant ladies, bearing the extra weight during pregnancy
  • Overuse of the veins in activities like By-cycling, walking, standing etc.
  • Hereditary factors

Best diet for patients suffering with varicose veins

Deficiency in certain nutrients can also cause varicose vein. The skin begins to lose its elasticity. As a result of this, individuals are usually encouraged to take a balanced diet that can supply the body with essential nutrients.

These include:

  • Diet rich in lean protein for easier digestion
  • Whole grain millet and wheat, instead of synthetically polished food grains.
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables. This helps to supply the body with Vitamin C.
  • Consume garlic, ginger, and onion for the proper distribution of the protein.
