Varicose or spider veins are quite common in the US and Europe. According to an estimate, more than 45 percent of men and women in the US suffer from some kind of veins related problems. These include varicose and spider veins.
The discoloration on the skin is either red or blue and is mostly found in the on the legs in the form of spider web patches. Spider veins is a mild form of varicose and is normally not dangerous. However, the condition may become worse due to the weak valves in veins, which prevents blood flowing in the direction of the heart. The veins become large, blue or red color and bulging. This condition is known as varicose veins.
Varicose veins are found on thighs or back of the calves. The most sever conditions can cause pain, bleeding, clots or skin ulcers.
Varicose and spider veins cause physical pain and they are distressing psychologically.
Does Conventional Treatment Work?
According to losethebackpain.com, conventional medicine has no cure for varicose and spider veins and they just focus only on the superficial removal of the condition. For instance, sclerotherapy involves injecting chemicals into the veins, which may act only temporarily.
Laser treatment is another option, which is quite painful, and you may need at least five treatments.
Radio frequency or surgery are other conventional options for the treatment of varicose veins.
Conventional treatment may be effective removing the existing varicose and spider veins but they do nothing to prevent the condition from reappearing.
According to some studies, proteolytic enzymes, which are systemic enzymes, helps alleviate painful condition of varicose veins. When these enzymes enter the blood, they offer several health benefits along with supporting the veins health. Our bodies produce these enzymes naturally in pancreas, but with aging the production declines especially after 40. As a result, the body is unable to fight the inflammation and so conditions like spider and varicose veins may become apparent.
Benefits of Systemic Enzyme Therapy
- Reduce inflammation
- Boosting immunity
- Improving blood circulation
- Helping in tissue repair
- Eliminating waste
- Providing nutrition to damaged tissues.
According to “The Complete Book of Enzyme Therapy” by Anthony Cichoke, proteolytic enzymes can effectively treat even serious varicose veins condition. These enzymes work through a mechanism that normalize blood flow and fluidity.
Dr William Wong ND, PhD says that there are many benefits of proteolytic enzymes and the greatest benefit is to clean the blood of debris. This makes the flow of blood better and strengthens the veins walls. Dr Wong further noticed that these enzymes help open the clogs formed by fibrin and thus improves the overall circulation.
Systemic Enzymes also help in acting against venous insufficiency, a condition in which the veins walls and valves are damaged causing the blood to pool in legs’ veins.
According to Michael Sellar, who is the editor of Enzyme Digest, systemic enzymes have the ability to breakdown fibrin. They have the ability to inhibit aggregation of platelets, break up fresh clots and accelerate blood flow. Michael Seller further suggests these enzymes eliminate the chemicals that cause pain. They improve oxygenation and are valuable to treat condition such as varicose veins, phlebitis and thrombosis.
