Varicose veins

Varicosis is a dangerous occupational disease that can affect people working on their feet. In addition to health issues, varicose veins are also a very unattractive sight. You should give your feet more attention and try to avoid developing varicose veins at all cost. Varicosis mostly affects people whose blood vessels have relatively thin walls or whose vessels become obstructed in some way.

Sadly, there are no good recipes for thickening the walls of blood vessels, but we can stimulate our blood circulation. Even the littlest movement of your toes has an invigorating effect on blood flow in your lower limbs. This is also true for walking in place and swaying your weight from foot to foot. If you’re predisposed to varicose veins, then you need to rest your feet high up. It’s also recommended to sleep and lie down keeping your feet a bit higher than the rest of your body. One of the best exercises to do while lying on your back is the “bicycle ride”.
