Hi, a really good way to help with varicose veins is to elevate your feet on a daily basis. A good way is to use an inversion table, but if you haven't got access to one then there are plenty of other ways.

You can lie on the floor and raise your legs so that they are straight against a wall. This helps the blood circulation. A friend of mine did this for a few weeks and his varicose veins actually got smaller, so you should definitely give this a go.

Hope it helps.  (+ info)

Home treatment is recommended for most people with varicose veins that aren't causing more serious problems. It can relieve symptoms and slow down the progress of varicose veins. For many people with varicose veins, home treatment is the only treatment they need.

If you have varicose veins, you can help control the problem and keep it from getting worse if you:

Wear compression stockings. Compression stockings improve circulation and are the mainstay of treatment for varicose veins.
Elevate your legs. Prop up your legs at or above the level of your heart when possible.
Avoid long periods of sitting and standing. Standing or sitting for long periods puts added stress on the veins in your legs.
Exercise and control your weight. Walk, bicycle, or swim to improve blood circulation in your legs.  (+ info)

What's the best way to get rid of varicose veins?

Varicose veins' starting to build-up in both legs. They look really ugly and they give me cramps everytime I sleep. what's the best way to get rid of them without surgery?

Surgery. My Dad had them for quite a long time. He got surgery for it and it certainly took care of it. It did bother his leg for a while though. And he switched from a manual transmission to an automatic so he wouldnt have to shift.  (+ info)

I'm a 22 year old girl and i have varicose veins at the back of my legs. This is really depressing for me because i cant wear skirts or anything that shows my legs. I've put fake tan on them but they are still noticable,does anyone know of a way i can hide them?

There are a number of treatments for them that can minimize or eliminate them. I've linked to an article about a doctor in Miami that uses a laser treatment on them. Check and see if there are any doctors in your area offering similar procedures.  (+ info)

For itchy skin-use Oil of Oregano diluted with olive oil-works wonderfully-I get mine from OreganoWorld.com for $19 oz. My daughter gets hers from NOW for $13 oz. cures Candida, strep throat, fungus rashes, ear infections. A medicine cabinet in a bottle. And, just this last week I found out it cures/helps me with allergies. I put full strength-not diluted in a size 0 gel cap from health food store and take 1 or 2 times a day with food. My nose might run-but, no raging headaches/sinus that send me to bed for a day or more. If its windy-I start to feel like an attack is coming on-I run fill a cap with this oil take a few crackers-its strong-and, Iam fine. But, it cured me of an itchy rash I had for 14 months-kaiser dermatologists w/biopsy couldn't cure me, But, due to much prayer-I got my answer-and, you have it now.
Read up on this miraculous oil. The best of life to you.  (+ info)

Why am I 23 and I already have varicose and spider veins?

I'm a 23 yr. old woman and I have spider veins on the backs of my thighs and varicose veins on my feet and calves. I can see right through the skin on my calves and all you see is blue veins.

I thought this only happens to older people? Why am I 23 and I have it? I am not over weight or under weight. I'm average. 135 lbs and 5'6''.

I have had the same thing since I was a teenager (hate it). It is hereditary and it is a gift from someone in your family line. I have not found anything to help so far, I started taking a vitamin called DiosVein that my mother in law suggested, she says it works for her not 100% but anything helps.  (+ info)
