If you’ve recently developed varicose veins, you may be wondering if there’s anything you can do to naturally get rid of them. While there are some steps that can be taken to alleviate some of the discomfort, most of the time varicose veins won’t disappear naturally over time.
Varicose veins occur when the valves in your veins are weak and allow blood to flow backwards. Due to gravity and the weak valves, blood ends up pooling in your veins and that causes to them to bulge and appear ropey. Unfortunately, most of the time, vein valve issues are genetic and can’t be alleviated with lifestyle changes. If your parents have varicose veins, chance are that you will mostly likely develop them as well.
One possible exception to natural improvement of varicose veins is if they developed during pregnancy. If you didn’t have varicose veins prior to your pregnancy, it’s possible that they will naturally improve over several months after giving birth. Though, they will likely return and worsen with subsequent pregnancies.
While it is unfortunate that in a majority of cases varicose veins can’t be fixed with lifestyle changes, current treatments are not invasive. Treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins are safe and very effective. Additionally, once you treat a varicose vein, it will not redevelop.
