Ayurvedic treatment for varicose veins:-
In our circulatory system, arteries supply blood from the heart to rest of the body, while veins return the blood from various parts of the body to the heart. While arterial blood flows with the gravity, venous blood flows against gravity. Therefore, veins have special valves that help in bringing the blood from the feet back to the heart. When these valves grow weak, the blood circulated may leak back downwards, leading to Varicose Veins. The veins become varicose, inflamed and painful. Generally, people who stand for long hours, or people whose profession requires them standing for long hours are at risk of developing Varicose Veins.
