Varicose veins

Hello, I was diagnosed with varicose veins a year and half ago and I've been under medication since then. This is a hereditary problem. However, the medication that I'm taking has been causing side effects. I want to know if there's a cure/treatment for the same in ayurveda. Could anyone help me with this?

Ayurvedic medicines and panchakarma procedures like siravedh and jalaukacharan ( leech therapy) have good results. Yoga and meditation is also of great help increasing the elasticity and circulation in vessels. Postures in lying back like halasana, pavanmuktasana and shishasana will help. Also postures on stomach like shalabhasana and makarasana, sitting ones like vajrasana and padmasana and mandukasana, while in standing like warrior pose and vrukshasana are helpful.

You need to consult nearest vascular surgeon for clinical examination and specific treatment There are some self-care measures you can take to decrease the discomfort that varicose veins can cause. These same measures can help prevent or slow the development of varicose veins, as well. They include: Exercise. Get moving. Walking is a great way to encourage blood circulation in your legs. Your doctor can recommend an appropriate activity level for you. Watch your weight, and your diet. Shedding excess pounds takes unnecessary pressure off your veins. What you eat can help, too. Follow a low-salt diet to prevent swelling caused from water retention. Watch what you wear. Avoid high heels. Low-heeled shoes work calf muscles more, which is better for your veins. Don't wear tight clothes around your waist, legs or groin. Tight panty-leg girdles, for instance, can cut off blood flow. Elevate your legs. To improve the circulation in your legs, take several short breaks daily to elevate your legs above the level of your heart. For example, lie down with your legs resting on three or four pillows. Avoid long periods of sitting or standing. Make a point of changing your position frequently to encourage blood flow. Try to move around at least every 30 minutes or so. Don't sit with your legs crossed. Some doctors believe this position can increase circulation problems.
