Veins are blood vessels that return deoxygenated blood from the outer parts of the body back to the heart and lungs. When veins become abnormally thick, full of twists and turns, or enlarged, they are called varicose vein. This happens most commonly in the veins in the legs and thighs.
The thickened, twisting or dilated parts of the vein are called varicosities.
Varicose veins can form anywhere in the body, but they are most often located in the legs.
Varicose veins tend to be inherited and become more prominent as a person ages.
Many theories exist for why varicosities occur in veins, but the consensus is that defective/damaged valves within the veins are the cause.
Valves prevent backward flow of blood within the vein. They keep blood in the vein moving toward the heart. It is unclear what causes the valves to work less efficiently.
They are more common in people who sit or stand in one position for long periods and often cross their legs when they sit. It can be also caused by poor recreation.
1 liter of homemade brandy
50 g of dried nettle leaf
50 g of Teucrium Montanum
50 g of St. John’s wort
Put all of the plants in a big jar with a lid. Pour the 1 liter of brandy over them and stir well.
Close the jar tightly and hold it for 3 weeks in a cool and dry place. Take one teaspoon of the drink once a day. It would be the best if you take it in the morning.
