Get rid of varicose veins naturally

Varicose veins can be annoyingly persistent and make you feel self-conscious about wearing shorts or dresses that expose the affected areas.

While many people head to the doctor for treatment, there are ways to get rid of them naturally at home.

1. Relieve the pressure
Wearing the the right shoes and clothes can make a big difference. Stick to low-heeled shoes, as these help to tone the calf area and muscles, which in turn prevents varicose veins from appearing. Stick to loose fitting clothes around the groin and waist as anything too tight will cut off circulation to the legs.

2. Increase your water intake
H2O helps to keep everything in the body moving – and we mean everything. The more you drink, the easier it is to pass your bowels, which eases strain on your legs and other parts of your body.

3. Drink apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is an excellent natural cleanser and improves blood flow and circulation. When the blood starts flowing, the swelling of varicose veins decreases and eases. Add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and stir well. Drink the mixture twice a day for at least one month to see positive results.
