Honey in the treatment of varicose veins

When searching for home treatments you will see that many websites will recommend that you use Cayenne Pepper, Garlic and Manuka Honey to cure your Varicose Veins.

Sadly, these options don’t work.

Why Don’t They Work?

One of the reasons these methods don’t work is because when applying them you don’t know the extent of the condition. For successful Varicose Vein treatment a Duplex Ultrasound Scan is needed to know if there is another problem elsewhere. Some women see their leg Varicose Veins return because they actually have them in their pelvis. The only way to know this is by having a thorough scan.

Another reason is because home remedies don’t actually get rid of the root cause of the problem. Some people who have tried treating them at home have seen the physical symptoms reduce. But they very quickly come back because they haven’t fixed the deeper problem in the vein.

What Methods Do Work?

The only way to remove your Varicose Veins for good is by having a Duplex Ultrasound Scan and following the advice from an experienced venous consultant.
Before treatment is arranged there are methods at home that you can try. Such as exercise, healthy eating and cutting back on alcohol and smoking can all help to reduce the symptoms of Varicose Veins.
