Video: ❶ Prevention Of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins is an insidious disease that is often genetically inherited. But there is nothing irreparable: at the first signs of the development of the initial stage of varicose veins, it is necessary to perform some actions aimed at somewhat slowing down the process of the development of the disease or even completely avoiding it.

Prevention of varicose veins, first of all, means leading a lifestyle as close as possible to a healthy one. Smoking cigarettes, alcohol in large quantities, as well as being overweight accelerate the progression of varicose veins. But walks in the fresh air and deep breaths and exhalations improve venous blood flow.
The diet should be rich in fiber and sources of vitamin E, which strengthen and cleanse blood vessels. You need to eat peas, soybeans, rye and wheat sprouts, rose hips, bell peppers, citrus fruits, walnuts, garlic and drink green tea. It is not recommended to consume large quantities of flour and fatty foods, marinades and canned food, smoked meats that destroy valves and walls in the veins.
The simplest thing to do to prevent varicose veins is to wear loose clothing that will not interfere with normal blood circulation. Don't wear very high heels all the time. Instead of ordinary nylon tights, it is better to wear compression hosiery, which correctly distributes the load on the vessels.
To improve blood circulation, relieve swelling, fatigue, you must regularly massage your feet with creams and gels designed for problem veins. You need to stretch your legs with your hands - from the tips of the fingers to the shins. It is helpful to keep your legs in an elevated position as often as possible, especially when sleeping or resting.
Prevention of varicose veins involves the elimination of heat stress, which helps to reduce vascular tone and provoke venous congestion. Saunas and hot baths, long exposure to the sun in the heat, have a negative effect on the veins.
Long standing or sitting on a chair is not beneficial either. It is necessary to walk every hour as a warm-up, restoring the outflow of blood from the veins. It is also not recommended to cross your legs so as not to obstruct the blood flow.
With varicose veins, it is useful to go for sports walking, swimming, cycling and skiing.
If red-blue blood vessels and enlarged veins appear on the legs, or pain and cramps in the legs, you should immediately consult a phlebologist. An experienced specialist will conduct an examination and prescribe the necessary treatment.
