Varicose veins is a condition that can be painful mentally as well as physically. Those enlarged, dark blue or purple twisted veins on the legs can become large, bulging veins if not cared for.
Did you know that varicose veins appear between the ages of 30 and 70 and affect 1 out of every 2 people age 50 and older? They usually get progressively worse if nothing is done to relieve them. Spider veins are blue or grey thread-like streaks that appear closer to the surface of the skin than varicose but have the same causes. They can have a web-like appearance or look like the branches of a tree. Both varicose and spider veins can cause burning, pain, tiredness and discomfort.
If you’re fearful of what the consequences may be for your health, take heart – Calendula’s powerful healing therapy continues to be a primary choice for many varicose vein sufferers who prefer natural alternatives over invasive surgical procedures. Calendula (in its extract form) is made from a species of marigold flower called Pot Marigold. Its Latin name is Calendula Officinalis and its flower petals are used as a powerful healing agent for a variety of ailments. It can heal external lacerations, abrasions and skin blemishes, rashes, wounds, chapped lips, diaper rash, gum and tooth infections, hemorrhoids, sore throats and tonsillitis.
Creams made with Calendula can reduce the inflammation associated with varicose veins and can regenerate weak, damaged veins and spider veins. because it is a powerful circulation enhancer. It prevents the tendency for legs and ankles to swell due to pressure or exertion. There is no need to suffer needlessly with unattractive bulging and discolored varicose veins, spider veins or tired legs. Natural alternatives are available at a price you can afford and are popular and easy to use. Specially formulated creams containing Calendula help varicose and spider veins fade and flatten and legs look smoother. If you have very bad ulcerated varicose veins you can make a poultice with this Calendula cream by placing a spoonful of the cream on a bandage and leaving it on the vein overnight to heal. Before long you will notice the healing effect and pain relief.
Since I began using Invisi-vein with Calendula extract and essential oils, I have noticed the varicose and spider veins in my legs are a lot less noticeable and are flattening out. My legs have more energy and stamina. This product was highlighted in the November, 2006 issue of Canadian Living Magazine by writer Julie Hunter.
