Varicose Veins Treatment in Ayurveda Treatment


Varicose Ayurvedic natural treatment in Melbourne

Varicose veins refer to a condition caused due to the abnormal enlargement of the veins. It occurs due to the laxity of the walls of the veins due to which they become weak and tortuous. Though this condition can affect any vein in the body, it is more common in the veins of the legs and feet.


The increased pressure or weight on the legs and the flow of blood through these veins against the gravitational pull are the factors responsible for the higher risk of varicosity of these veins. Ayurveda can offers alternative varicose veins natural treatment that is aimed at strengthening the muscles in and around these veins and preventing their laxity. [1]


Sign and Symptoms of Varicose Veins


Varicose veins can cause pain in the legs and discomfort. In some cases, the symptoms may be mild, but still, require medical intervention due to the cosmetic disfigurement caused due to the visibility of the dilated veins. These veins often appear as the legs of a spider. Hence, this condition is also called spider veins. Using herbal natural treatment for spider veins may also minimize the disfigurement by strengthening  the normal structure of the affected veins.


Though some patients do not develop any pain due to varicose veins in the initial stages, the condition can become worse over time due to the constant pull on the damaged veins. The loss of musculature in the walls of the veins can further affect the flow of blood from the legs to the heart.


As a result, there is an increased backward pressure in the veins. This result is the pooling of blood in the affected veins as the muscles fail to pump the blood against the gravity. The treatment recommended by Ayurveda, the system of Indian medicine, can prevent the worsening of varicose veins and reduce the risk of complications caused due to the pooling of blood. [2]


The backward pressure in the veins of legs can also cause significant damage to the valves in these blood vessels. In normal individuals, these valves facilitate the upward flow of blood by blocking the blood from returning back through the vein. However, when varicose veins progress and cause damage to these valves, the blood flows backward thus worsening the symptoms.



The common symptoms of varicose veins may include:


  • Veins appear blue or dark purple in color
  • Veins bulge, become twisted and look like thick cords on the legs
  • Heaviness in the legs
  • Burning and throbbing in the legs
  • Muscle cramps
  • Swelling in the lower legs
  • Inability to stand or sit for a longer duration
  • Itching of the skin over the enlarged veins
  • Bleeding from varicose veins


Spider veins natural treatment using ayurvedic herbs may reduce these symptoms. If not managed, varicose veins can worsen and cause some complications such as ulceration, and eczema.


Painful ulcers may develop on the skin over the varicose veins in feet and near the ankles. Occasionally, the deep veins of the legs are enlarged resulting in swelling in the legs and feet. In some cases, the veins close to the skin burst causing bleeding.
