Varicose veins are blood vessels that carry deoxygenated or bad blood back into the heart, that have become enlarged and twisted. Typically they occur just under the skin in the legs. In some cases, smokers have varicose veins in their arms also. This symptom is almost always preceded with regular complaints of leg pains. Complications may include rupture of the vein and subsequent bleeding.
The cause of varicose veins is almost always unhealthy food timing and bad food combinations coupled with sedentary lifestyle. People who eat when not hungry, who eat very late into the night, who eat sweets in between or after meals and those who sleep immediately after eating are at a greater risk of developing this symptom.
Food when eaten without hunger cannot get digested. In such cases, improperly digested nutrients gravitate to the lower extremities of the legs. Blood becomes more viscous and cannot thereafter flow back into the heart as naturally as it could before. This is the preliminary cause of varicosity of the veins. Subsequently, oxygen saturation in the blood drops which results in varicose veins.
Risk factors include umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia, obesity, fatty liver disease, GERD and other conditions related to the digestive and metabolic systems. Varicose veins may result in chronic venous insufficiency. This condition indicates weak or damaged valves in the veins. With Nadi Pariksha we can diagnose this symptom much before its actual onset.
You can cure varicose veins with moderated lifestyle, change in food combinations and food timing. Appropriate exercise and medication will yield faster results.
