Homeopathy Treatment for venous insufficiency

In the case of venous insufficiency, also known medically as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), the blood builds up in the legs. It is usually defective vein valves that prevent blood from being transported back to the heart. This increases the pressure in the veins. Fluid builds up. The legs are often affected by venous insufficiency. They are then often swollen and painful.

Homeopathic remedies are used to alleviate the symptoms of venous insufficiency.

Further tips and information on treatment

Venous insufficiency should be treated early, because advanced vascular damage cannot be reversed and complications such as embolism, phlebitis, varicose veins or thrombosis can result. If the ankles are swollen in the evening, the legs are heavy, tingling, itching or pain, these are the first warning signs of venous insufficiency. A feeling of tension in the lower legs and nocturnal calf cramps are other symptoms of weak veins. If the venous insufficiency is already pronounced, discolouration of the legs, varicose veins, water retention or tissue hardening can occur.
