The term "varicose" is Latin in origin and literally means
to be "twisted." Thus, varicose veins are defined as "twisted,"
gnarled, and enlarged veins. The most common means of treatment
is via self-help measures such as compression stockings.
However, herbal treatments are gaining in popularity as an adjunct
treatment and, as current research indicates, may be as effective
as many compression therapies. Alternative therapies continue to
be the primary choice for many varicose vein sufferers, as surgical
procedures for treatment are quite invasive and involve the closing
or complete removal of the affected vein.
Cardiolin addresses the healing process by providing the body with
nutrients needed for circulatory support. Additionally, when used
in conjunction with exercise, proper diet, and relaxation techniques,
Cardiolin may provide a reduction in the diameter of varicose veins
without employing costly surgical procedures.
What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are swollen/bulging veins that can be seen through
the skin. Veins are soft, thin-walled, specialized blood vessels
that return deoxygenated blood from the outer limbs of the body
back to the heart and lungs. Varicose veins occur when these veins
become abnormally thick, and exhibit certain characteristics; including
a bluish tint and twisting pattern - often resembling cords. Because
of gravity and increased pressure upon the lower limbs, the back
or inside of the legs, calves, and ankles have the greatest tendency
to become varicosed.
There are two classes of veins in the lower limbs:
Superficial - Veins, and branches of veins, closest to the skin.
These veins are usually the ones to become varicosed (usually greater
than 3mm in diameter). Communicator or perforator veins are also
included in this category.
Deep - These veins are encased by muscle and connective tissue,
which are the main suppliers of deoxygenated blood to both the lungs
and heart. These veins have one-way valves which prevent varicositites
from occurring. If deep veins become enlarged, immediate medical
attention should be sought. This may indicate the formation of a
blood clot, or thrombophlebitis.
Other conditions associated with abnormalities and/or enlargements
of superficial veins include; venous lakes, reticular veins, and
Signs and Symptoms:
Varicose veins are easily identified by their color and unique
pattern, but rarely present with symptoms. Again, they are thought
of as more of a cosmetic nuisance than health detriment. Symptoms
that have been reported include:
Leg Ache or Heaviness
Itching around one or more affected veins
Discoloration near ankles
Causes and Risk Factors:
Varicose veins result from an increased elasticity of the vein
wall. As we grow older, the valves in the veins may malfunction
and cause blood, which should be traveling toward the heart, to
pool in superficial veins. The result is an enlargement and bluish
appearance in these veins. The bluish color is a direct result of
varying amounts of deoxygenated blood in the vein(s) that is in
a process of recirculation.
Varicose veins are far more common in individuals who sit or stand
for prolonged periods of time, due to poor circulation. Other risk
factors may include:
Age: The aging process wears down the functioning of the valves
in the veins that help to regulate blood flow. This often leads
to a valve malfunction; the primary cause of varicosity.
Genetics: If it a good chance that if someone else in your family
has suffered from varicose veins, you will too.
Sex: 33% of all women will suffer from this condition, compared
to only 17% of men. Hormonal changes, menopause, premenstruation,
and pregnancy are also thought to be key contributors to varicose
vein development. Women are more susceptible as female hormones
are thought to weaken, or relax, vein walls.
Obesity: Carrying more weight puts additional stress/pressure upon
your entire circulatory system.
Diagnosing Varicose Veins:
Varicosities are usually determined by appearance. Your doctor
may ask you to stand to look for additional signs of swelling. As
well, you may be asked to describe any symptoms you are currently
suffering from, as this may be an indication of a more severe, underlying
condition. An ultrasound test can also be performed to eliminate
the possibility of blood clot. If your worry is greater than what
you're primary doctor is capable of dealing with, you'll likely
be referred to either a dermatologist or phlebologist (doctor specializing
in vein conditions).
Compression Stockings: These elastic stockings are worn to prevent
blood from flowing backwards by squeezing affected veins. They may
also be recommended for persons with sores to promote the healing
process, or to relieve any pain and swelling caused by varicose
Sclerotherapy: A chemical is injected in to the small, or medium
sized varicosity. The chemical irritates and scars the veins from
the inside out. This prevents the vein from filling with blood and
redirects flow to healthier veins.
Ablation: A catheter is inserted into the vein. Tiny electrodes
located at the tip of the catheter heat the walls of the varicose
vein and destroy the tissue.
Laser Stripping: A tiny fiber is inserted into a varicose vein
via catheter. The fiber sends out laser energy that kills and closes
the affected, or diseased portion, of the varicose vein.
Vein Stripping: After disconnecting and tying off all major varicose
vein branches associated with the main superficial vein in your
leg (saphenous vein), your physician will remove the saphenous vein.
Small incision avulsion usually accompanies this procedure, and
allows your physician the ability to remove varicosities via hooks
passes through the small incisions.
Certain nutrient deficiencies have been shown to promote the onset
of varicose veins in both men and women. Cardiolin provides nutritional
support for YOUR entire circulatory system; lessening the venous
pressure of the legs and increasing the integrity of tissues that
Currently there is no way to completely prevent varicose veins.
However, improving your circulation with nutritional supplements,
regular exercise, and diet, can dramatically lessen the risk of
development. As well, addressing certain nutrient deficiencies is
key in maintaining vein health and integrity.
Cardiolin contains a potent, synergistic blend of botanicals, that
have been clinically evaluated and shown to promote circulation
and diminish the side effects associated with varicose veins. As
the majority of insurance carriers do not cover the cost of cosmetic
surgery, Cardiolin can be used as an alternative therapy for managing
the symptoms associated with varicose veins and circulatory support,
as well as to reduce the unsightly appearance of bulging, discolored
