Treating varicose veins naturally at home can be very effective. This is what my wife Melinda and I discovered when, after developing varicose veins ourselves, we started looking into our options. With the information we managed to gather, we quickly concluded we were not keen on surgery of any kind unless left with no other choice, and that instead we should focus our energy on home methods.
The Medical Way
The high cost of medical procedures was certainly a big deterrent for us. Varicose veins home remedies are much more affordable, costing a fraction of what a single surgery could cost. It also occurred to us that undergoing an operation could become a large disruption to our lives, having to accommodate the various consultations, the actual procedure, and the inevitable recovery. Home treatment could be done on our time, whenever it suited us best.
In general, my wife and I are also against having to subject our bodies to surgery unless all other options are exhausted. Finally, we suspected, and correctly so, that in addition to taking care of our varicose veins problem, natural methods could have a positive impact on our overall health and quality of life.
With this information in mind, the decision was made to not put our bodies through surgeries and all that comes with them unnecessarily. If another method could work, especially one that is natural and less expensive, why not give it a try first? Surgeries would always be there to fall back on if our alternative attempts didn’t work out.
The Natural Alternative
We investigated most home methods of addressing varicose veins we could find. For us to consider a treatment, it had to be fairly mainstream (we didn’t want to be guinea pigs), have good reported rates of success, be inexpensive, and be practical enough to work easily into our ever-changing schedules. We understandably wanted to be as informed as possible before attempting any treatment, and to us at least it felt like we left no stone unturned.
Something else we were keen on when selecting treatments was to use more than one method at the same time. We figured as long as it is safe to do, why not further stack the odds in our favor. With their low cost, applying even several home treatments in parallel would cost us less than a tenth a surgery for just one of us would.
We ultimately settled on the three options below.
While each listed varicose veins natural treatment is an excellent option and stands on its own, Melinda and I used all three concurrently for maximum effectiveness. They all serve slightly different purposes and play very nicely together. However, just beacause we did that, it doesnt mean you have to as well. You really can’t go wrong whichever way you choose.
If you do already have a specific treatment in mind, hopefully, you will find the information we provide on it useful. But, we would certainly recommend at least skimming through our write ups on all three. You can never be too knowledgeable when it comes to your health.
Finally, please remember that we recommend having a chat with your doctor before starting any treatment. We talked to ours after we did our research, and while the varicose veins solutions we chose are generally extremely safe and have worked great for us, everyone’s situation is a bit different.
