They’re ever-present in your body but you’re seldom aware of their purpose and function. That is, until you encounter a slight problem with your veins. Veins are the blood vessels that carry blood from the different parts of your body to your heart. Valves are crucial to the process, as they act like doors opening to allow blood to pass through and closing so the blood doesn’t flow backwards.
If your veins and valves are healthy, you’ll have nothing to worry about. However, if you have unhealthy veins and valves, there is the possibility of blood flowing backwards into the veins and causing a variety of vein diseases. Such diseases include spider veins, varicose veins, and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) – each can have significant effects on your body. Fortunately, there are different types of treatments to help reduce the effect such as Sclerotherapy and Laser Ablation to reduce the health impact of these venous diseases. Plus, there are some natural remedies to decrease the pain.
