Heal Varicose Veins Naturally Simple Recipes Against Swelling and Sore Feet!

Varicose veins are quite common condition, and their treatment is not easy and requires persistence and a lot of time to achieve results. This disease develops as a result of circulatory overload and due to poor circulation. If untreated, complications can be severe and lead to thrombosis, open wounds, etc. There are many plants hidden in the nature that can help with varicose veins, so we will show you how you can solve this problem completely naturally.

Horse chestnut

It is an excellent natural remedy against varicose veins and hemorrhoids, and in addition to reducing varicose veins, relieves pain, fatigue and swollen legs.

Aescin is a miracle ingredient found in the horse chestnut, which has a beneficial effect on the circulatory system and thus helps in decreasing swelling and pain.

Horse chestnut reduces inflammation and accelerates the blood circulation, increases the venous capillaries resistance and thus the load on the circulatory system is reduced, as well as the swelling. Horse Chestnut reduces sense of heaviness in the legs and reduces pain and spasms.

Marigold cream

You can use the one from the store, but we recommend you to make it at home. To prepare Marigold cream you will need four hands of finely chopped marigold (flowers, leaves and stems) and 500 grams of high-quality grease that needs to be heated up and then the chopped marigold needs to be added. Put the mixture on the stove, stir and remove after it boils. Leave the mixture overnight at room temperature, and the next day warm it up slightly so you would be able to strain it.

Rub the cream on the affected areas, several times a day.

For successful treatment you can combine marigold cream and horse chestnut, in a way that you firstly apply the marigold cream on the affected areas and then apply the horse chestnut balm. A marigold protects the skin against dryness and irritation caused by the alcohol contained in a horse chestnut balm.

Fresh cabbage

The cabbage leaves can be used as a perfect compress against varicose veins, painful and swollen legs. All you need is a big and fresh cabbage, so that the leaves are large enough to cover the affected area. Put them directly on the affected area and fix them.

Leave the compress until the cabbage is dry, and then replace it with new, fresh leaf.

You will feel relief right after putting the leaf, and the pain and swelling will reduce as well. Be persistent in putting compresses because after prolonged use the condition will improve significantly, and the skin that has been inflamed and red, will become soft and healthy.

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life


Malignant melanoma is a skin cancer which occurs as a result of cancerous growth of melanocytes. These are cells that produce melanin, the pigment that determines the skin color. In normal conditions, melanocytes reproduce regularly, but in case of DNA damage, cells begin to reproduce uncontrollably and that is why a tumor appears. The causes of DNA damage may be genetic but environmental factors such as exposure to UV radiation may be the reason as well.

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life

Melanoma often develops from an existing nevus (moles) of the skin, although in rare cases may firstly occur in the eye. It is one of the most serious cancers because it can spread to other organs, can cause serious health disorders that are difficult to treat and often ends in death. Early detection of melanoma is vital, because in most cases the patient can be saved with minor surgery.

In order to be prevented and early detected,  beside regular visits to a dermatologist, it is recommended to check your skin by yourself once a month.

ABCDE rule will help you to make a better distinction between benign nevus and nevus that can cause malignant melanoma.

  1. A (Asymmetry)

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life1

Moles that are not suspicious in most cases are symmetrical. This means that (Figure 1) if you drag an imaginary line that runs through the middle of the benign nevus, you’ll get two almost identical halves.

In case the halves are asymmetrical (Figure 2), it might be melanoma.

 

  1. B (Borders)

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life2

Benign nevus is characterized by well-defined and regular edges (Figure 1), unlike the suspicious mole which has irregular, jagged, broken edges that are undefined, so often the boundary between the mole and surrounding skin is unclear (Figure 2).

 

  1. C (Color)

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life3

Benign mole usually has a uniform pigment pattern, which means they have same color that is evenly distributed (Figure 1).

Moles that have multiple colors (black, various shades of brown, red, dark blue, gray, traces of white color) or are in one color that is uneven, are suspicious. (Figure 2  and 3).

 

  1. D (Diameter)

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life4

Although the mole does not possess the above mentioned characteristics (asymmetry, border changes and color), if it has a diameter larger than 6 mm, you will need to consult a dermatologist.

Malignant melanoma is usually with larger dimensions, although in rare cases can occur in moles smaller than 6 mm.

 

  1. E (Evolution)

Have you Heard about the ABCDE Rules that Can Save Your Life5

Any changes in the mole in terms of color, shape or size, which are accompanied by itching, increased sensitivity or bleeding, should be taken seriously and a dermatologist should be consulted.

 

Warning: ABCDE rule is not a substitute for regular dermatological controls, but can be quite helpful for early detection of malignant melanoma. Therefore, regularly visit your dermatologist, and if you notice any suspicious change immediately consult your doctor!

Wrinkles Can Tell a Lot of Things about Your Overall Health!


– Is it wise to “iron” face wrinkles?

Skin wrinkles are visible signs of aging. Today there are numerous cosmetic products and processes that occasionally can “neutralize” them. But is it wise to “iron” the face wrinkles?

The answer is- Not always, because sometimes they can indicate serious problems.

Wrinkles Can Tell a Lot of Things about Your Overall Health

Osteoporosis

Deep wrinkles can be a sign of poor bone density.

In a research carried out on 100 women aged between 40 and 50 years, scientists have found a connection between the depth of their wrinkles and bone density. Probably, it is because the bones and skin contain a common ingredient – collagen, which decreases with aging.

Sugar

Wrinkles can also indicate that you consume too much sugar. Sugar binds to proteins in the body and produces complex substances that destroy the collagen and elastin, which causes wrinkles to appear on your face. If you cannot live without sweets, then replace them with fruit, especially oranges and mangoes.

The early stage of heart disease

Diagonal wrinkles that occur on the earlobes, can sometimes indicate early stages of heart problems. These diagonal wrinkles are also known as “Franc sign” and are named after the scientist T. Sanderson Franco who discovered them in 1973. These wrinkles appear as a result of dysfunction of the blood capillaries in the earlobes, indicating a change in the blood flow through the heart.

 Stress

Wrinkles also occur due to stress. Those who are constantly under stress and often change their mood usually get wrinkles on the forehead. The consequences of stress are not only visible on your forehead, and appear because the stress hormone that is secreted in such situations, destroys the collagen.

  High blood pressure

Women who look youthful generally have low blood pressure. It is also noted that women and men who live longer have fewer wrinkles on the hands.

What Are the Worst Sleeping Positions After Which you Wake Up Tired?


– If, after 7 or 8 hours of sleep you still feel tired, sleepy, you have a headache and muscle pain, it is time to make some changes

What Are the Worst Sleeping Positions After Which you Wake Up Tired

If, after 7 or 8 hours of sleep you still feel tired, sleepy, you have a headache and muscle pain, it is time to make some changes

  1. Stomach sleeping

While it may seem that sleeping in this position will stretch your body and straighten your back, stomach sleeping actually has a completely opposite effect that you will feel in the morning after getting up from bed.

In this position it is very difficult to maintain a relaxed and natural position of the spine. Also, it increases the pressure on the groins and on other abdomen muscles, legs and arms, and in this way the nervous system is irritated which can lead to muscle tension and pain

It is similar with the position where the head is placed on the side so the tendons become tighten; it causes suppressed nerves, which leads to pain in the neck and unexpected headaches.

  1. Fetal position

Although this sleeping position is quite common among people, try to make small but significant changes when you sleep. In the fetal position the spine is shaped like the letter C, which is not a normal position.

Also in this position your knees are affected too if they are bent for a long time in same position, the blood circulation is worsen and pain is caused as well.

This way of sleeping makes a pressure on the diaphragm and thus obstructs the breathing. The pressure on the chest can cause dull pain. This position is only good for pregnant women because it reduces the pressure on the stomach and regulates breathing.

It was found that only 60 minute riding a bike is sufficient to activate hormones that reduce the feeling of hunger, which results in consuming significantly less food and calories.

Cycling provides you with energy during the day and at the same time it helps you to sleep like a baby at night.

However, experts advise to look at the time when you ride a bike, or to avoid riding it about 4 hours before bedtime.
