Hello User,

With our sedentary lifestyle and fatty diet, the legs which are the weight-bearing joint of our body get extra-loaded and this tends to make our body very weak and vulnerable. To protect our body from more damages, we have to protect it with a healthy lifestyle.

The reason our body works in harmony is because of the fact that the fluid is present in the body in case of varicose veins it is the blood flowing. This acts as grease in the body which tends to make sure that all the organs have a smooth flow in function. The valve in the veins gets disturbed due to the fact that the cartilage is not getting a sufficient amount of blood circulation. So, our main focus is to make sure that our body gets fluid.


When we eat the right kind of food at the right time we make sure that it is easily absorbed.

  • Let us start our day with a good amount of water.2-3 glasses of warm water help in flushing out the toxins. These toxins which come and make our immunity vulnerable to diseases need to be flushed.
  • Your breakfast should comprise something light, a fruit bowl and after some time a vegetable juice is easy to digest. This will help in the absorption of nutrients easily. Vitamin C helps in regulating blood pressure which eases on the valves of the legs.
  • The consumption of seeds after lunch like a mouth freshener is a very good chance of dealing with it, this is a good way you can rely on to consume seeds, seeds will help in increasing blood quantity and easy flow. Jaggery and dates are also a good addition.


Let us start with dealing with the exercise part in a broader spectrum, exercising will not only help you in bringing back the comfort but also get a good amount of exercise.

1.After sitting on a chair, raise your legs at a right angle one by one and do it continuously, for 25 times. Do it with one long breath at a time.

2. A brisk walk is something that you can do daily at a slow pace.

3. By sleeping on your back, you do leg raise alternately, this will put more pressure on the muscles.


  • Practice mindful meditation.
  • Deal with your stress.
  • Allow positivity to be part of your life.

Doing a 15-minute exercise before sleep like deep breathing will help in relaxing your mind, you can use music also for relaxation. A calm mind will lead to a healthier body.


Getting 7-8 hours of sleep is very essential for the body, during sleep our body repairs itself and rejuvenates us for the whole day.

Taking good precautions with diet and exercise which is mandatory-you need another mode of treatment like,

  • Wearing tight stocking till your thighs in your day to day work.
  • Whenever you sleep, keep two pillows beneath your legs, your legs will get good circulation of blood.
  • Avoid standing for too long.

Take care, Stay fit.

Hello User,

Varicose veins is a disorder which results when the valves of the veins doesn't 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.

Hypothyroidism results in weight gain and it worsens the problem of varicose veins. Thyroid is a lifestyle disorder which results due to improper functioning of thyroid gland and results in hormonal imbalance. The main reason for the dysfunctioning of thyroid gland is improper lifestyle. 

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.
