Hello Jyoti,

Varicose veins is a disorder which results when the valves of the veins do not work properly. Standing for long intervals is the main cause for varicose veins. It leads to disturbed blood circulation which results in swelling, pain in legs and other symptoms.

Mud packs are a part of the Balneotherapy. It is a great way to reduce pain and inflammation in the legs due to varicose veins. It helps by reducing vein enlargement and pain in the legs.

You cannot reuse the mud once used.

Apart from the mud packs, here are some tips for the management of varicose veins naturally. 

To do-

  • Do some light stretching exercises early in the morning. 
  • Perform bhujanga asana,paschimottan asana. 
  • Add ginger, black pepper to your food.
  • Have the only plant-based, natural foods for your meals. 
  • Have fresh fruits and vegetables. 
  • Drink a lot of water to flush out the toxins out of the body. 

To avoid-

  • Avoid standing for a long time. 
  • Do not sit in a single posture for long.
  • Avoid tea and coffee. 
  • Avoid packaged foods and processed food items.


  • Drink a glass of water with lemon juice in it in the morning on an empty stomach. This will help to improve the metabolism and will also help to flush the toxins out of the body. 
  • Have fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. 
  • Drink coconut water. 
  • Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices with fibres. Fibres will add bulk to the stool and will also aid in its movement. 
  • Include salads, sprouts, nuts and beans in your diet. 
  • Have whole grains like barley, millets, oats, etc in your diet.
  • Include Vitamin C in your diet like blueberries, amla, orange, lemon, etc. 
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to be hydrated. 
  • Avoid processed, packaged, preserved, oily and spicy foods. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal foods. 

Physical activity 

Being physically active is also important just as our diet is important. You can perform yoga or any other exercise or simply indulge in some outdoor sports like football, basketball, badminton etc. 

  • Take a short morning walk of atleast 30min in the morning. 
  • Do paschimottan asana, padahasta asana, trikona asana and gomukha asana. 
  • Perform pranayam regularly, specially anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 


Sleep is also essential for a healthy body. It affects the circadian rhythm and in turn our hormonal balance. So, it is important to maintain the correct sleep cycle. 

So, sleep early at night at around 10 pm and also wake up early in the morning at around 6 am.
