When veins become abnormally thick, full of twists and turns, or enlarged, they are called varicose vein. This happens most commonly in the veins in the legs and thighs. Although most varicose veins generally don’t require medical attention, they are visually unpleasant, and can cause people to be self-conscious.
There are many effective laser methods to treat varicose veins, however there are simpler, natural and less expensive solutions that have been used in Russian folk medicine. Tomatoes are known to have many health benefits but they also can be helpful in treating these vascular irregularities.
There are 2 kinds of tomatoes: red ripe and green tomatoes and both can be used. Tomatoes contain an acid that is anticoagulant which dilutes the blood like aspirin and the flavonoids in tomatoes can help you strengthen your blood walls.
Treating with Green Tomatoes
The tomato treatment is really simple. Wash a few tomatoes and slice them. Put the slices directly on your veins and capillary. You’re going to start feeling a tingling sensation. If you can’t stand that sensation for a long time, remove the tomato slices and wash your skin with water. You must apply these tomatoes to the varicose veins skin for at least 2 hours to get the full effect. And if you do that for at least 14 days you will notice a great improvement in your skin looks and feels.
Treating with Red Ripe Tomatoes
Wash and slice the tomatoes. Put the sliced on the nodes of varicose. Use some light cloth to tie the tomato slices and leave them on for 4 hours. We recommend you doing this procedure at the evening or before going to bed.
