Let's try to figure out what is causing the disease. If you use the "miracle scanner" to look inside the vein while walking, you can see that inside the vein there is a valve, blood is pushed up, muscles contract and veins shrink. Then the valves close and the blood does not flow back. This is the principle of the veins.
Veins are unique vessels, since they have valves, arteries do not have valves.
When we are very long without movement, the muscles do not contract under the force of gravity, the blood constantly presses, the valves expand, and there is a failure.
At this point, when there is a failure, the vessels gradually expand and varicose veins develop.
Many believe that with mild symptoms of the disease should not rush to the doctor. Thus, with varicose of the initial stage, when the vascular asterisks appear on the legs or if there are small tubercles, but there are no outflows on the legs, pains in the lower extremities by the end of the day, and the situation hinders only aesthetically, there is no health hazard.
At this stage, home treatment is still possible.
