i have varicose vein problem since my childhood, now i am 45 years, anyone suggest some alternative medicine.?

Herbal Therapies

Witch hazel - Application of a witch hazel ointment three or more times is necessary for two or more weeks before results can be expected. (Witch hazel may cause minor skin irritation in some people when applied topically; this herb is not recommended for internal use.)

Horse chestnut - Can be used both internally and as an external application for problems of venous circulation, including varicose veins. (Horse chestnut should be avoided by anyone with liver or kidney disease. Its internal use is also contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. Topically, horse chestnut has been associated with rare cases of allergic skin reactions. Since circulation disorders and trauma associated with swelling may be the sign of a serious condition, a health care professional should be consulted before self-treating with horse chestnut.)

Bilberries - Support normal formation of connective tissue and strengthen capillaries in the body, and in this way help prevent varicose veins.

Butcher's broom - Tons veins while reducing inflammation. Can also be prepared as tea.

Gotu Kola - Strengthens blood vessels and improve peripheral circulation.

Ginkgo (Ginkgo Biloba) - Strengthens blood vessels and improve peripheral circulation.

Hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) - Strengthens blood vessels and improve peripheral circulation.

To disperse buildup of a protein that makes skin near varicose veins hard and lumpy, try eating more cayenne (Capsicum frutescens), garlic (Allium sativum), onion, ginger (Zingiber officinale), and pineapple, which contains bromelain, an enzyme that promotes breakup of fibrin.

External applications of Camomile, Comfrey, Oatstraw, White Oak Bark, or Witch Hazel are believed especially beneficial.

Hamamelis: Tincture or lotion may be applied locally at night. Hamamelis 3X every three hours when veins are affected.
Pulsatilla: 3X is recommended every eight hours after child delivery.
Carbo vegetabilis: When constipated and with poor circulation. In cases of ulcers of varicose veins.
Mercurius sol: if accompanied by infection, pus, and foul-smelling discharge.
Lachesis: Blue color in area mainly on left side.
Belladonna, 12x or 12c potency four times a day, is recommended for red, hot, swollen, and tender varicose veins.
Ferrum metallicum if your legs look pale but redden easily and walking slowly relieves the weak, achy feeling.
Arnica 30c

It is beneficial to alternate between hot and cold baths. This is believed to stimulate circulation in the legs. It is easy to do this. You need two buckets or plastic wastebaskets tall enough to submerge the legs up to the knees. Fill one container with enough comfortably hot water to cover the lower legs and the other container with the same amount of cold water. Add 2 tablespoons of epsom salts per quart of water or you can add an aromatherapy oil to the water. Soak your feet and legs in the hot water for about three minutes, then immerse them in the cold water for about 30 seconds. Repeat three times, finishing with the cold soak. Perform this treatment once a day for at least one month to see results. If you have diabetes, use warm (not hot) water.

Sponging or spraying legs with cold water can relieve aches and pain from superficial varicose veins.

Juice Therapy

Fresh fruit juices can be very helpful for those with varicose veins. Dark-colored berries such as cherries, blackberries and blueberries contain anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, pigments that tone and strengthen the walls of the veins. Pineapples are rich in the enzyme bromelain, which helps prevent blood clots, an uncommon but serious complication of varicose veins.

Juicing provides these nutrients in much higher concentrations than you can get by just eating the fruits. Drink eight ounces of fresh berry or pineapple juice, alone or diluted with another fruit juice, once or twice a day for maximum benefit.

One or two glasses daily of fresh fruit or vegetable juices- especially any combination of apple, beet, carrot, celery, citrus, parsley, or pineapple-and dietary supplements may be helpful in preventing and treating varicosities.


Maintaining your overall fitness, both nutritionally and physically, is most essential to preventing varicose veins from developing. Any program of regular exercise stimulates circulation, improves muscle tone, and helps prevent varicosities. However, high-impact aerobics, jogging, strenuous cycling, or any intense activity may increase blood pressure in the legs and accentuate varicose veins. Walking and swimming are considered excellent therapy, as are gentle leg-muscle stretches and utilizing a rocking chair while watching television.

Lying flat on the floor and resting the legs on a chair seat or straight up against a wall for 2 minutes drains blood from swollen veins. Elevating the feet higher than the hips with a recliner or ottoman, and raising the foot of the bed a few inches, helps blood flow back to the heart from the legs.

Start your morning with a brisk walk or finish your day with a swim or bike ride.

You can help control varicose veins with a program of specially designed exercises, under the direction of a trained exercise therapist who is knowledgeable about the condition's particular needs.


Regular massage can significantly alleviate discomfort associated with varicose veins. A trained massage therapist starts at the feet and massages your legs up to the hips and along the lymphatic system, to mobilize congested body tissues.

If you do the massage yourself, remember to never massage directly on varicose veins. A general leg massage can help reduce swelling in the veins. Sit up comfortably on a sofa or bed, with your legs raised slightly on a pillow. Now work up the entire leg from the ankle to the upper thigh. (Remember not to touch the varicose veins.) Do this daily for about five minutes on each leg.


Working your hands or feet may help with varicose veins. Massage the whole feet or hands and press the following points three times per day for five minutes each point after massaging the whole feet: 18, 19, 24, 25, 21, 22, 34, 26. (adrenal and parathyroid gland, digestive system (especially the liver), spine, heart and sciatic nerve.)

Schuessler Tissue Salts

Calcarea fluorica: 6X when the veins are dilated, or when there is a tendency to varicose ulcerations or bluish discoloration of the tissues or muscular weakness.
Ferrum phosphorica: 6X for inflammation of the veins, red streaks following the course of vein, throbbing pain along a vein. Can be used as alternative to calcarea fluorica. Also good for those suffering from inflammation and those who are advanced in years.
Magnesium phosphorica: 6X for severe, acute, cramplike, spasmodic pains. Also for those suffering from flatulence or neuralgia.


Yoga's stretching and relaxation techniques can be particularly beneficial for varicose veins. Certain positions, such as the Plow, Corpse, and Half Shoulder Stand, promote circulation and the drainage of blood from the legs. The deep-breathing exercises in yoga may further alleviate discomfort by getting more oxygen into the bloodstream.

A special breathing exercise can help ease pain from varicose veins. Start by lying on your back on the floor, arms at your sides, with your feet resting above you on a chair. Breathe deeply through your nose using the belly breath. Gravity helps pull blood from your legs. The deep breathing creates a pull in your chest cavity that also draws blood from the legs. Fresh blood then enters your legs, easing the pain. Do this exercise once a day for about ten minutes.

Folk Remedies

Apply a cloth saturated with apple cider vinegar on the varicose veins for 30 minutes twice a day. Follow this with a drink of 2 teaspoons of the vinegar in a glass of water.
Prepare a salve by stirring 2 cups of chopped calendula flowers, leaves, and stems into an equal amount of melted lard. Let the mixture stand for 24 hours. Reheat and strain. Coat this over your varicose veins and let it stand overnight.
Steep crushed, fresh violet leaves and flowers or marigold flowers in boiling water. Apply compresses of the liquid. Eat a few fresh marigold petals every day. This treatment is believed to shrink varicosities and nourish the veins.
Prepare a poultice of bruised cabbage leaves, rotten apples, chopped brown onions, or a half-and-half blend of cod liver oil and raw honey. Apply this overnight. This is believed to heal varicose sores.
To one pint of warm water, add three tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Take two ounces of this mixture everyday.
Rub your legs with full- strength vinegar. Mix two tablespoons of vinegar with honey and drink it.

Common Sense Recommendations

Exercise regularly. Staying fit is the best way to keep your leg muscles toned, your blood flowing, and your weight under control.
Eat foods low in fat, sugar, and salt. Drink plenty of water. Take supplements of vitamins C and E.
If your job requires you to be on your feet constantly, stretch and exercise your legs as often as possible to increase circulation and reduce pressure buildup.
If you smoke, quit. Smoking may contribute to elevated blood pressure, which in turn can aggravate varicosity.
If you're pregnant, sleep on your left side rather than on your back. This minimizes pressure from the uterus on the veins in your pelvic area. It also improves blood flow to the fetus.
To ease painful swelling and inflammation, rest frequently, wear support stockings, and take one or two aspirin or ibuprofen tablets daily until the condition clears.
If you like to sit with your legs crossed, cross them at the ankles rather than the knees for better circulation.
Take occasional breaks and put your feet up. Periods of rest with your feet a few inches above your heart level let gravity work in your favor, helping pooled blood drain from your legs.
Avoid high heels in favor of flat shoes.
Wear loose clothing. Tight garments can restrict venous blood flow to leave blood pooled in the legs. Particularly harmful are girdles or pantyhose too snug in the groin area, garters, calf-hugging boots, or waist-cinching belts.
Take an aspirin every day. This will thin the blood and prevent blood from clotting. (Consult your doctor if you are taking any heart medication or other medication for blood clotting.)
