Everyone is looking for a quick fix. We all want that magical cure that saves us time and money. I know I wish I could find that magical weight loss drug that helps me drop inches without sweating it out at the gym and counting calories, but the truth is that quick fixes don’t work. The same can be said for varicose vein treatments. The only way to get rid of varicose veins once and for all is to see a specialist, like Dr. Paul Feldman at Truffles Vein Specialists, so you can get a personalized treatment plan that will work. While the initial price may seem steep, it is actually a medical condition covered by your insurance. Let’s be honest, do you really think insurance companies like United Healthcare and Humana would provide coverage for vein treatments if it was as easy as soaking your legs in green tomato juice? While sites like Pinterest and Facebook may be great time killers, and provide awesome recipes, they are not the place to seek medical advice. Check out the list below for the craziest at home remedies that don’t work.
Crazy Vein Remedies that DO NOT WORK:
1. Bathe your legs in green tomato juice
2. Apply undiluted apple cider vinegar to the veins
3. Apply cayenne pepper, mixed with warm water, to the veins
4. Massage the vein with a mixture of olive oil and water
5. Apply sliced garlic cloves to the veins using bandages
6. Make a clay mask and apply to the area
7. Apply a rag soaked in witch hazel to the area
Varicose vein treatment is a medical condition and is covered by most insurance companies including United Healthcare and Humana, if any of these remedies worked they would require you to do them before paying for vein treatment. It is as simple as that. For more information about vein disease follow @vascularcme on Twitter or like our Facebook page.
