VARICOSE VEINS

Enlarged, twisted veins with nonfunctioning valves. In normal veins, valves in the vein keep blood moving forward toward the heart.  With varicose veins, the valves do not function properly, allowing blood to remain in the vein.  Pooling of blood in the vein causes it to enlarge. This usually occurs in the veins of the legs, although it may occur elsewhere.Causes include congenitally defective valves, thrombophlebitis, and pregnancy.

Prolonged standing or sitting, poor posture, and increased pressure within the abdomen will both increase susceptibility or aggravate the condition.Primary varicose veins occurs because of congenitally defective valves or without a known cause.  Secondary varicose veins occur because of another condition, such as occurs when a pregnant woman develops varicose veins (because the enlarged uterus puts pressure on the veins that drain the legs).

Symptoms are pain in the legs: fullness, heaviness, aching, muscle cramps of the legs visible, enlarged veins, swelling of ankles, skin at the ankle discolored brown, skin ulcers on the legs or above the ankle.

Treatment may not be required unless the condition is painful or is causing skin ulcers.  Treatment may be requested to improve the appearance. Surgery such as vein stripping and ligation (removal of the varicose vein) or sclerotherapy of veins (injecting with a solution that causes scarring, which closes the vein) may be recommended.

In homoeopathy medicine like Puls, Hemamiles, Calc flur  are used for the treatment. The proper analysis of the case with the qualified homoeopathic physician will give the better results.
