Improving the health of your veins not only reduces your risk of having vein problems or making existing vein problems worse, but it supports your overall health. You probably know that there are many things you can do to improve your health, but did you know that you can take steps to better the health of your veins?
How To Improve Your Vein Health
Managing your varicose vein, spider vein or other related vein issues doesn’t have to be difficult. Besides getting Las Vegas vein treatment, here are a few things you can do.
Elevate your legs daily. To reduce the pulling gravity takes, elevate your legs for about 10 to 15 minutes daily. This enables excess blood to drain from your lower legs and move toward your heart. Try to elevate your legs above your heart if possible.
- Wear compression hosiery. Compression socks stockings put pressure on your calves to gently force the blood back up from your lower limbs towards your heart.
- Exercise frequently. Walking is a super physical activity to improve your blood circulation. Try to walk at least once daily, and more if you can. Exercise also strengthens the muscles in your thighs and legs.
- Eat a healthy diet. Reduce sodium (i.e. salt) in your diet to avoid retaining water. Eat colorful foods, which contain healthy bioflavonoids.
