Ayurvedic Treatment for Varicose Vein

Ayurveda Treatment for Varicose Vein

An enlargement and tortuosity of a vein, artery or lymphatic vessel are known as varicosity. A vein that has enlarged and twisted often appears as a bulging, blue blood vessel that is clearly visible through the skin. Ayurvedic treatment for varicose veins is one of the most recommended therapies to cure this disease. 

Ayurvedic Cure for Varicose Veins

Ayurvedic medicine has been used to address a variety of health problems for ages. Varicose veins are one of them. Veins that have swelled and twisted are known as varicose veins. They are most common in the legs. Ayurvedic treatment for varicose veins includes a variety of therapies, including traditional medicines and lifestyle changes.

A dilated or swollen vein is referred to as 'varicose.' The backflow of blood in the veins causes them to become swollen, twisted, and dilated, resulting in varicose veins. 

Varicose veins are most commonly found in the veins of the legs. Veins are blood vessels that transport oxygen-depleted blood from the legs to the heart. Blood is prevented from flowing backwards by valves. These valves weaken as a result of strenuous activities such as extended standing, weight-bearing, or long-distance walking, causing blood flow to reverse direction, resulting in vein swelling and dilation. Getting the right ayurvedic treatment for varicose vein helps to treat and cure all its symptoms and risks. 

Causes of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are caused by faulty or damaged valves. Blood is transported from the heart to the rest of the body via arteries. The heart receives blood from the rest of the body via veins. The veins in the legs must battle against gravity to return blood to the heart.

Lower leg muscle contractions operate as pumps and elastic vein walls aid blood return to the heart. As blood rushes toward the heart, tiny valves in the veins open, and then close to prevent blood from going backwards. Blood can flow backwards and pool in the veins if these valves are weak or broken, stretching or twisting the veins.


  • Veins that are dark purple or blue in colour
  • Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in lower legs
  • Worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long time
  • Itching, bleeding, discolouration, hardening of the skin, inflammation of the skin, ulcers near the ankle etc.


Our Ayurveda Treatment for Varicose Vein

Siravyadham, bandhanam, jaloukavacharanam etc can be done to manage the condition depending upon the condition of roga and rogi. 

It is difficult to acquire a complete and lasting cure for varicose veins. This is because the weak and convoluted valves in the veins cannot be restored. Varicose veins, however, can be properly treated and additional damage avoided with ayurvedic treatment for varicose veins.

In Ayurveda, varicose veins are called "Siraja Granthi," with "Siraja '' referring to the veins and tube structures that carry blood, and "Granthi" signifying a cyst-like bulge. It's claimed that increased pitta dosha around blood vessels, as well as impaired Kapha and Vata dosha at the bulging region, causes tridoshic imbalance and aberrant blood clots. Varicose veins are characterised by symptoms such as numbness, weariness, engorged veins, Krishnarakta Sira (blue staining in the veins and skin), and discomfort (continuous aching in the lower legs).

The aim of ayurvedic varicose vein treatment is to:

  • Restore valve function so that blood can be returned to the heart.
  • Repairing the harm caused by a malfunctioning vein, such as muscle weakness, loss of feeling, and so on.
  • External therapies are used in conjunction with blood-thinning medicines to improve blood circulation and
  • To detox, the blood created by the malfunctioning valve, blood purification methods and medication is used.
  • Improving metabolism, which will aid in the purification of blood more quickly; better cardiac function by lowering cholesterol and assisting in the opening of clots formed due to valve failure.
  • Collateral circulation (circulation in the nerves and veins around the afflicted nerves) will also be improved.
