We all know varicose vein treatment has received much notoriety and recognition in the US, but vein health awareness is spreading to Asia. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is hoping to bring vein issues into the forefront of this historical, and wise, medical treatment. Doctors who practice TCM recommend herbal remedies, exercise, Chinese massages and acupressure to prevent varicose veins. Such remedies are highly regarded especially for people working long hours in an office and who lack daily doses of exercise.
Similarly, the TCM has outlined a number of things you can do and eat at home to assure healthier veins. “
TCM recommends foods that stimulate blood circulation and resolve blocked energy and blood, such as hawthorn, rapeseed plant and red phaseolus bean. Beef, mutton and chicken also warm and unclog energy channels.”
