I am not sure, but as far as I know, there are no natural cure for varicose veins. Only prevention, just dont tire your legs and then getting it went. That would trigger swelling of the veins. But I there are cosmetic cure for varicose veins offered by beauty clinics. A medicine will be injected directly into the vein to reduce swelling and thus reduce its visibility.

Yes, thanks for the comment bhonti. I am afraid to use injection for my veins. Well I have read some blogs about that but I never try. Somehow this will help for other readers if they will encounter same thing.

Based on what I have learned in the medical school, there are only two solutions for that. One is surgery which is I think it's not what you are looking for since you have implied you are looking for natural solution. So, the other one is, some kind of good habits. Whenever you are finished with your work and resting at home, lie down on your back either in a sofa or in bed, then put your lower extremities affected by varicose in a position higher than your body particularly your heart. It will help ease the pressure on the walls of the affected blood vessels (veins) and if practiced over time, it will definitely improve your condition. Try it. It was lectured to us by a surgeon professor. :)

Thanks for the advice magtibaygom. If you only know, I already tried that position. But I stopped doing that because there is no reaction. But now I will try lie down on my back again because as you have said, it definitely improve my condition.

I have heard of a plant extract called witch hazel..this is good for many things, it may be worth your while in researching it... Varicose vein relief witch Hazel Soak wash cloths in witch hazel and lay on legs, which are propped straight out, to reduce pain and swelling from varicose veins. The witch hazel helps to tighten the veins, relieving the discomfort temporarily
