Varicose veins occur when blood leaks back into the vein and collects there, causing the vein to become congested or clogged. This congestion will cause the vein to abnormally enlarge. These enlarged veins can be either varicose veins or spider veins.
Bitters & Syrups
horse chestnut and broom are the two most used traditional treatments for strengthening and toning the veins. Broom is approved by German Commission E for chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids. Home remedies use topical astringents such as witch hazel, vinegar and lemon oil to reduce swelling and pain of varicose veins in feet and legs.
