AYURVEDIC TREATMENT OF VARICOSE VEINS
What are varicose veins? Have you ever seen anyone who is diagnosed or suffering from this problem. There are lots of questions which come into mind. We have not even heard the name of some diseases. Due to the lack of knowledge, minor health issues result in the severe health complications. Before switching to the treatment part we must discuss the all the aspects like causes, symptoms and complications associated with the diseases.
ABOUT VARICOSE VEINS
This problem mostly occurs in the veins of thighs and legs. Abnormal thickening, twisting and bulging of veins is termed as varicose veins.
There are mainly two systems of veins in legs:-
- Deep veins - which carry the most of blood back from legs to heart.
- Superficial veins - which are present under skin and form varicose veins.
So these veins have one way valve that controls blood flows towards heart. But due to the failure of these valves blood flows backwards into veins which exert the excessive pressure. Due to that veins can't close properly. This excess pressure in the veins, results in the development of the spider veins or varicose veins.
LET'S SEE THE CAUSES ASSOCIATED WITH VARIOCSE VEINS PROBLMES
Varicose veins problem is also considered as the genetic problem. It has been seen that women are more prone to this problem as comparison to men. There are various factors which are responsible for this problem like hormonal complications, pregnancy, use of contraceptive pills, menopause and hormone replacement therapy.
These are the causes which may lead to varicose veins problems:-
- Pregnancy – This problem occurs in 1st trimester of pregnancy. During this time elevated levels of hormones and increased blood flow result in varicose veins. Moreover large uterus also exerts the pressure on veins. This problem can be improved within 3-4 months after pregnancy. Where as in the case of successive pregnancies, these abnormal veins remain present.
- Extended standing.
- Urine retention by prostate also creates the strain on leg veins which results in varicose veins.
- Any injury or surgery to legs. These conditions arrest the blood flow ways.
VARICOSE VEINS ALSO LEAD TO RISK OF OTHER CIRCULATORY PROBLEMS
So, don't take these symptoms lightly:-
- Sizable veins can be visible under the surface of skin.
- Minor swelling in feet and ankles.
- Steady pain in legs.
- Cramps in legs.
- Etching and dryness in lower legs and ankle.
- Discoloration of skin around varicose veins.
CAUSE OF VARICOSE VEINS - ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA
According to Ayurveda there are three energies – vata, pitta and kapha which are important for a healthy body. Varicose vein problem is due to the unbalancing of vata doshas. Vyana vata, which is subdosha of vata, is responsible to regulate the oxygen rich blood flow through arteries and veins. Due to imbalance of vata doshas, there is the excessive dryness occurs in veins and arteries. Pitta dosha is related to heat and regulate the metabolic and hormonal functions. Rajni vata (subdosha of pitta) helps in the purification of blood. But when this Rajni vata get imbalanced then blood become impure because digestive toxins can also get mixed which results in formation of ulcers in varicose veins. Improper diet habits cause the loss of skin elasticity which results in varicose veins.
