Hello, I’m Darren and welcome to our site. We hope it will be the source of information you have been seeking on treating varicose veins using natural home remedies. It would make my wife Melinda and me very happy to help one more person successfully end their struggle with varicose veins.
Varicose veins run in both our families, which, based on some studies, made us genetically predisposed to them. We both had weight issues earlier in our lives, which can also be a contributing factor. I have a job that requires me to stand about 90% of the time. That is yet another checkbox on the list of potential varicose veins causes. Whatever was ultimately the reason, it didn’t come as much of a surprise that we eventually developed varicose veins.
In both our cases, they showed up in the most commonly affected area, the legs. Oddly enough, we also both got them around the same time (nature sometimes works in weird ways). While this timing was odd and in one respect unfortunate, on the other hand, it meant we were both able to work the issue together.
As often is the case, things were not too bad at first and despite being somewhat mentally prepared for eventually having to deal with varicose veins, for whatever reason we initially chose to quietly ignore them. In retrospect that was of course not the thing to do, as predictably things started to get worse. The problem veins were now starting to get quite visible. If this was the only problem, I personally could probably live with it (even though I love my shorts). But unfortunately, we also both begun to experience the mostly typical pain and discomfort associated with varicose veins.
Having the aching around during the day was somewhat manageable, as we always had ways to distract ourselves away from it. But for myself especially, the pain I experienced at night was the much greater issue. I’m a light sleeper, and getting a good night’s sleep became challenging. Melinda’s case was thankfully less severe, but as you can imagine, still very much detrimental to her everyday.
When we decided to seek treatment, our primary goal was to as much as possible use only natural home methods. A combination of factors had us lean in that direction over any surgical treatment. Home methods are significantly cheaper, coming in at a fraction of what medical treatments usually cost. We were also able to work them easily into our day to day lives without the need to make any major changes. We never had to take any time off for medical appointments, post surgery recovery, or anything of that sort. Above all else though, my wife and I are firm believers in not subjecting ourselves to surgery before all other viable options are exhausted. If something else can work, especially if it is something natural and non-intrusive, why not try it first?
Natural home treatment of our varicose veins was our primary goal, so we were both rather happy we succeeded. It did take a fair amount of information gathering and some trial and error to arrive there, but we did. That is also how this site was born. Between the two of us, we now had a wealth of knowledge, and it would have been a shame to not do something more with it.
So, that is what you will find on our site. You can read about everything we have learned on various varicose veins natural remedies, as well as the product choices we have made. It is our sincere hope this information will help you make an educated decision about which treatment to pursue yourself to address your own struggle with varicose veins. We couldn’t be happier with how everything worked out us and wish the same for you.
