Information on Varicose veins

DescriptionVaricose veins are veins that have become distorted, lengthened, or stretched. They are especially common in the superficial veins of the legs. The condition can be associated with a blockage of blood flow, as can sometimes happen during pregnancy, and can occur more commonly in people who stand on their feet all day. Movement of the leg muscles helps squeeze blood in the leg veins back to the heart.
Treatment PlanHerbal treatment is often centered on strengthening the veins and warming, blood-moving herbs.
