The varicose veins. Traditional treatment and other methods

Under the influence of nicotine is not only released thromboxane – a further factor in the clotting of the blood, but also the menopause, women who smoke are about five years earlier than non-smokers. Nicotine, it also prevents the normal formation of sex hormones.

Varicose veins during pregnancy

varicose veins

Usually in the first three months of pregnant women begins to ooze across the leg or on individual parts of the mesh of the dilated veins. You can exude like on both sides once, and on a. This effect occurs because of the fact that from the uterus, increases the venous outflow, because of this "extra" blood begins to overflow the veins of the legs. At the third month of pregnancy the uterus increases so much that it begins to put pressure on the blood vessels and even hinder the circulation of blood in the lower limbs. In this case, it is strong enough it begins to exude subcutaneous vienna on the calf or thigh, or (very rarely) on the foot.

In this period women only look at the manifestation of the veins of the legs, which in some cases may be accompanied by a feeling of heaviness in the lower limbs.

In the last month of pregnancy, the femur and the large vein in the subcutaneous layer, the higher. Of course, after a bit of time after birth, were decreased, but not to the initial state. Because of this in time may worsen the outflow of venous blood from the lower limbs, you will begin to them to stagnate, and to develop varicose veins.

But it is not so terrible this phenomenon, as to describe it. And the desire to avoid illness should not lead to a rejection of the child. According to statistics, the first pregnancy does not always lead to the development of varicose veins. Only the "mina" the body and prepares the ground for the formation of the disease. Here is the second and the subsequent pregnancy to a greater extent provoke the onset of the disease.

Knowing the genetic "weakness" of his body and the "bouquet" of symptoms, which may appear at before your pregnancy, you need to take all the necessary measures to: contact a specialist – doctor-phlebologist, equip them with compression underwear, to reconsider the diet, etc., And before the disease do not go!

During the period of pregnancy, varicose veins can create the risk of complications. The longer the duration, the greater the risk of side effects. The slowing of the current of blood in the legs and varicose veins often leads to thrombophlebitis, which endangers the health not only of women but also the unborn child. Therefore, the doctors argue that the complications much easier to avoid, if in advance to care for their health.

To be honest, that the dependence between the appearance of varicose veins and pregnancy – it is not a straight line. Varicose can develop and before pregnancy. 30% of women with varicose happens in the first 3 months of pregnancy, and the rest, in the span of seven months.

Installed a few of the reasons that contribute to the development of varicose veins:

  • the development of the fetus, the uterus begins to put pressure on the blood vessels, making difficult the outflow of blood from the lower limbs;
  • the amount of blood circulating in the vessels, is greatly increased, and the outflow from the uterus, increases of 20 times. In this regard, increases the load on the veins, and can not guarantee the normal outflow of blood from the lower limbs;
  • during the birth, when it begins to shrink the uterus, greatly increases the abdominal pressure and the load on the veins increases;
  • occurs an alteration in the hormonal of the body, which leads to some of the changes: increases joint mobility, soften the ligaments. The walls of the veins become softer and dilate, causing the disease of the veins.

If a woman is at risk, the development of the disease is almost inevitable. Then those women who have a genetic predisposition to varicose veins, overweight, and whose activity is associated with a long stay in the heat or in the sun in the hot season, it is necessary to seriously reflect on what to take measures to prevent the development of the disease.

Particular attention should be taken to further the causing factors of women during the second pregnancy, and also who was going to give birth to a child over the age of 30 years.

Varicose veins are men

Among men of this disease, first of all, those, who has a certain hereditary predisposition. Promotes the development of varicose veins and life-style, including a variety of abuse. But most varicose veins are affected by overweight men, usually caused by the wrong diet (too a large amount of carbohydrates and, on the contrary, the deficiency in the diet of food of plant origin).

Because the legs take on himself the whole weight of the body, the excessive weight, they also represent an additional burden. And under the influence of a large mass of body, occurs additional compression of the veins, causing the blood to he is forced to do the higher pressure, compared to the reduced weight. Therefore, some of the more moderate phases of the venous tissue increases, which leads to the formation of blisters and knots. Because of an excessive stretching of venous tissue cease completely overlap the valves, which further strengthens the process of pathological changes.

For men the varicose veins there is a more specific disorder: they can develop a varicocele – the extension of the veins of the testis. In this case, the following occurs: little by little, the egg loses oxygen, it changes the lipid metabolism, develops hypotrophy of the egg, is of small size, and, consequently, a violation occurs of the process of production of sperm. The testicles become soft, pathological, and therefore, a man waiting for infertility. The fact is that the vein that carries blood from the right side of the egg, resulting in the inferior vena cava, and the left – the left renal vein. The last is necessary to "pull " agile" through the aorta, a very dangerous place – a real thorn, that, shrinking, becomes dense on the road to the venous blood circulation. In this phase, you gradually increase the pressure, valves to stop to keep the blood, then begin to malfunction of the egg. This process takes place and in the elderly. But more often observed in boys in the age of 13-15 years, when the work of the internal organs and especially the heart systems does not match the rapid growth of the skeleton. Of course, and here plays a significant role as a factor of inheritance.

Varicose veins in children

Varicose veins of the limbs in children is usually a congenital disorder. These abnormalities peripheral vascular system. This is with regard to rare diseases. They were accompanied by pronounced anatomic and functional disorders of the limbs, and soon lead to disability of patients.

Adverse factors can be different intoxication (for example, heavy flu, pneumonia, etc), as well as trauma, poisoning, etc.,

Predisposing the reasons for the development of various types of deformity of the fetus include smoking and alcohol consumption, and in equal measure as the future mother and the father.

In the diagnosis it is essential to the ability of observation of the parents, especially the mother, who usually spends more time with the child in his first year of life.

The initial phase of the disease

The clinical manifestations of varicose disease change in its process of development and depend on the stage of the disease.

In some patients, before the advent of dilatation of the superficial veins are complaints of increased fatigue, heaviness in the legs after a day of work, the false sensation of pain in any department of the tibia. Often, these feelings appear in the typical areas of greater localization of communicating veins (links), where the following occurs in the local extension of the subcutaneous veins. Often the appearance of signs of disease in the form of extension of the veins preceding the appearance of unpleasant sensations in this field.

The beginning of the disease manifests itself in the form of mild or moderately expressed varicose veins, that occurs most often in the upper third of the tibia, but it may at first appear in all the departments of one or both lower limbs. Advanced to vienna, to the touch, soft, easy to collapse, the skin over them is not changed.

Methods of treatment of varicose veins

Herbal medicine

The interest for medicinal plants is not random. Together with the increasing flow of pharmacological agents, and increases the number of their side-effects – from allergic reactions and serious complications to the modifications of the apparatus genetic. Herbal medicine is practically free of defects of drug therapy. Note, however, that during the treatment it is advisable to use herbal medicines, included in the state pharmacopoeia, and only non-toxic plants with a minimum expressed toxicity.

Assumes a particular importance herbal treatment, which has very ancient origins. On the basis of the century-old experience shown that the herbal medicine is essential, harmless, and effective for the treatment of varicose veins.

The healing properties of plants, mankind has used for a long time. Plants – an inexhaustible storage room plant medicine. Throughout the history of mankind plants are used by people with curative intent, and many of them firmly occupy a place of honour in scientific medicine. Over 30% of all the interactions drugs obtained from plants. In plants containing alkaloids, vitamins, trace elements, biologically active substances, in specific ratios, which have created in the course of the whole evolution, the interaction of plants with the environment. This something is the advantage of herbal preparations compared with the drug, obtained by synthesis in the laboratory or in a dedicated isolated form.

The curative effect of the medicinal herbs

The role of medicinal plants in the treatment of many diseases is undeniable. What is the essence of the curative effect of the medicinal herbs? Medicinal plants in the course of his life to synthesize various chemicals, including a lot of biologically active compounds, which exert on the human body and the pharmacological action. For the chemical nature of the biologically active substances are very different. This glycosides, alkaloids, carbohydrates, essential oils and fats, tannins, organic acids, vitamins, trace elements, volatile, enzymes, polypeptides, hormones.

Medicinal plants usually contain dozens of chemical groups, and strictly balanced quantity necessary to the human body.

Carbohydrates most common in plants, a group of compounds. They are presented generated from monosaccharides – xylose, glucose, galactose, fructose, and took an active part at the offices of the metabolic processes of the body.

Ribose is directly involved in the synthesis of rna, which is the main building material of cell genotype.

Widely distributed in plants of uranium in the acid. The disadvantage of these compounds is the cause of severe disease – phenylketonuria, associated with the death of the patient (in the absence of treatment).

Widely represented in plants and polysaccharides: cellulose, lignin, starch, insulin, pectin and cellulose.

Cellulose is a building material of the connective tissues of the body, cellulose, plays an important role in the maintenance of normal metabolic processes in the digestive tract and the body in general.

The insulin is useful for the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus, the pectin has absorbent and astringent properties, it disinfects the damaged tissues. To the carboxyl groups of pectin are cations of different metals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, molybdenum, etc.), therefore, in the treatment of pectins are able to exchange cations of metals from cations of heavy metals (mercury, lead, strontium), thus protecting the organism.

Pectin is useful for the prevention and treatment of vascular disease (including varicose veins). It regulates the metabolic processes in the walls of the blood vessels and the blood flow velocity. Plant medicine that contains pectin and insulin (root, elecampane, ginseng, linden flowers, dandelion, plantain leaves, etc.), made of decoctions, infusions.

For the fees of herbs are often used marshmallow root, berries, and blueberries, the flowers of the lime-tree, leaves of plantain, etc.
