DO YOU HAVE BAD CIRCULATION?
TIRED LEGS? GET YOUR BODY TO CIRCULATE
Varicose veins are dilated as a result of poor circulation due to malfunction of the internal valves of the veins. The venous return is not adequate and the blood accumulates. It is then termed chronic venous insufficiency.
The causes can be multiple: from hereditary predisposition to certain life habits, passing through certain situations such as pregnancy or obesity. The symptoms of venous insufficiency can be cramps in the legs, a feeling of “tingling”, swelling, heaviness of the legs and pain.
These symptoms are relieved by resting with the legs elevated and worsen when it is hot or the are exposed to a source of heat nearby; they also get worse by staying a long time standing or a lot of time sitting during the day.
