Varicose veins? What are they?

In France, there are thermal cures specialized in phlebology. The principle is to relieve the symptoms with warm and cool water baths, underwater massages, beverage cures and lymphatic drainages. Activities such as jet showers, vaporiums, hydromassage and limb modeling will tone the leg muscles and reduce the sensation of heavy legs and varicose veins.
2- Dietary rebalancing
Losing weight but also volume can help reduce blood thickening (hemolysis) and promote free blood circulation in the venous circuit. It is necessary to eliminate or limit foods containing saturated fats such as butter, margarine, red meat, cheese, refined oils, sweets and deli meats.
Add fresh vegetable juice as an appetizer, fruit outside of meals, drink plenty of water between meals, lemon juice without sugar.
3- Naturopathy, for a better global health
Nutrition, psychology and exercise are the pillars of naturopathy to achieve good health and vitality. Here are several tips from naturopaths to reduce varicose veins:
Drain the liver: There are plants called cholagogues that facilitate the evacuation of bile: boldo, chamomile, rosemary, artichoke, borage, fumitory, black radish.
