Varicose veins are usually present in the legs and are raised above the surface of the skin. They are enlarged, twisted and painful veins that fill with blood. Varicose veins are not life-threatening but they can cause discomfort.
The best ways to prevent varicose veins are:
• Use a dry body brush to improve lymph flow
• Don’t cross your legs while sitting
• Sit with elevated feet occasionally
• Eat anti-inflammatory foods such as: turmeric, ginger, blueberries, olive oil, broccoli and kale.
On the opposite, deep vein thrombosis is a more serious condition that happens when a blood clot forms in a vein located deeply inside your body. Deep vein blood clots typically form in your thigh or lower leg but it can also develop in other areas of the body. A blood clot is a clump of blood that is in a solid state and can be caused by anything that prevents the blood circulation.
Deep vein thrombosis is a serious, potentially fatal condition. Symptoms of blood clot include: cramping pain, redness, warmth or swelling in one of the legs, chest pain, fainting, coughing up blood and breathlessness. If you notice any symptoms of blood clot you should consult your doctor immediately.
