Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins with Ayurvedic Treatments

Introduction: Understanding Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are a common vascular condition of veins characterized by enlarged, prominent, twisting of it that often appear blue or purple. While they can occur anywhere in the body, they most commonly affect the legs and feet. In Ayurveda, a varicose vein is understood as a disorder of Vata dosha, leading to weakened blood vessels and impaired circulation.

In this blog explores the Ayurvedic perspective on varicose veins, including their causes, traditional treatments, and dietary recommendations for optimal vein health.


Ayurvedic View of Varicose Veins

According to Ayurveda, varicose veins result from an imbalance in Vata dosha, the energy that governs movement and circulation in the body. When Vata becomes aggravated, it can cause the veins to lose their elasticity and become swollen and twisted. Other doshas, particularly Pitta and Kapha, may also play a role in exacerbating this condition. Ayurvedic treatment focuses on balancing the doshas, strengthening the veins, and improving circulation to alleviate symptoms and prevent further complications.


Causes of Varicose Veins in Ayurveda

  • Sedentary Lifestyle: Lack of physical activity can lead to poor circulation and weaken the veins over time.
  • Prolonged Standing or Sitting: Jobs or activities that involve long periods of standing or sitting can increase pressure on the veins and contribute to varicose veins.
  • Genetic Predisposition: A family history of varicose veins may increase the likelihood of developing the condition.
  • Imbalanced Diet: Consuming excessive spicy, oily, and heavy foods can aggravate Vata and contribute to circulatory issues.
  • Chronic Constipation: Straining during bowel movements can put pressure on the veins in the abdomen and lower body.
  • Age: Sometimes age is a factor for developing varicose veins in people. As we age the body loses its tensile fibers and collagen that keeps skin tight. This results in loosening of skin and ultimately results in varicose veins.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Varicose Veins

Ayurveda focuses on individual dosha and prakruti for better results and recovery. The herbal remedies mentioned in the description are for the sake of knowledge please consult your Ayurvedic doctor for the medication.

  • Herbal Remedies: Ayurvedic herbs like Triphala, Guggulu, and Rasna, Erandamula, Dashamoola are commonly used to improve circulation, strengthen veins, and reduce inflammation.
  • External Applications:  Local application of herbal pastes or oils that contain ingredients like neem, turmeric, and dasmoola can help reduce swelling and discomfort in the muscles and ultimately affect varicose veins.
  • Dietary Modifications: Emphasize foods that pacify Vata dosha and support healthy circulation, such as warm, nourishing soups, cooked vegetables, whole grains, and herbal teas.
  • Lifestyle Changes:  Incorporate regular exercise, particularly gentle activities like walking, swimming, and yoga, to improve circulation and strengthen the muscles surrounding the veins.

Panchakarma Treatment for Varicose Veins:

Panchakarma, the traditional Ayurvedic detoxification therapy can be beneficial in managing varicose veins by removing toxins, balancing the doshas, and promoting overall health. Specific Panchakarma treatments that may be recommended include:

  • Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Oil Massage):  Regular oil massage improves circulation, reduces inflammation, and nourishes the skin and tissues. Ayurvedic medicated oils such as Mahanarayan Tailam, and Dashamoola Tail seem beneficial in treating a massaging the varicose veins.
  • Swedana: The process of ayurvedic fomentation helps to relax the muscles of thighs and calves and relieves the pain and discomfort in the veins which are prominent due to varicose veins.  For this Churna pottali massage is preferred for the treatment. The churn or powder reduces the swelling reduces discomfort and helps to strengthen them.
  • Virechana (Therapeutic Purgation):  To detoxify the blood and balance Pitta dosha Virechana is done in varicose veins patients.
  • Basti (Enema Therapy):  As we have seen varicose veins are a disorder of vaata dosha. So the Basti treatments with medicated oils or decoctions can help alleviate Vata imbalances and strengthen the veins. It also nourishes and strengthens the veins.

Ayurvedic Diet for Varicose Veins: Do’s and Don’ts

  • Do’s:

Embrace a diet rich in fiber, antioxidants, and nutrients to support vein health.

Include fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes in your meals.

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to promote circulation.

Consume foods that are cooling and nourishing, such as ghee, and coconut.

  • Don’ts:

Avoid spicy, oily, and heavy foods that can aggravate Vata and impair circulation.

Limit caffeine and alcohol intake, as they can dehydrate the body and worsen varicose veins symptoms.

Reduce intake of salty and processed foods, as excess sodium can contribute to fluid retention and swelling.

Minimize consumption of red meat and fried foods, which can increase inflammation and exacerbate varicose veins.

Conclusion: Nurturing Vein Health with Ayurveda

Varicose veins can be a source of discomfort and concern, but with the holistic approach of Ayurveda, there are natural methods to manage and alleviate symptoms.

While treating acidity with ayurvedic medication it is equally important to follow diet regulations along with the medical treatment.

प्रसक्त संरोदन कोपशेक क्लेशाभिघातादतिमैथुनाच्च॥

शुक्तारनालाम्लकुल्थमाषविषे बणा व्देग विनिग्रहाच्च।

स्वेदादथो धूमनिषेवाणच्च छर्देविघाताव्दमनाति योगात्।

बाष्पग्रहात् सुक्षनिरीक्षणाच्च नेत्रे विकारान् जनयन्ति दोषाः॥

सु. ऊ. २६/२७

Some easy tips to maintain eye health:

Besides going for heavy treatments suggesting you some useful tips to maintain your eyes health.

  • Rose water: If you are suffering from burning eyes or redness due to exposure to heavy strain or heat, then rose water can be beneficial for you. Just add some good-quality rose water drops to your eyes. Or dip a cotton pad into rose water and place it on your eye after closing them for a few minutes. You feel the difference within some time.
  • Fresh milk: Un-boiled milk is another quick and effective medicine for dryness & redness of the eyes. Just dip a cotton pad into fresh un-boiled milk and place it on your closed eyes for a few minutes. You feel the difference within some time.
  • Using Sunglasses:  While roaming in withe and or sun or riding a bike always use good-quality sunglasses. This not only helps you protect yourself from UV rays but also covers your eye from heavy wind waves, which is one reason to vitiate a Vaata dosha.
  • Applying Kaajal or Anjan: Applying a good quality of Kaajal made up of ghee is the best remedy to improve eyesight.

*(Applying Kaajal, using rose water and fresh milk dip are not to perform while having contagious eye disease or any chronic eye disease. Before any use please consult your doctor.)*

Exercise for eyes:

  • Movement of eyes in circular motion clockwise and anti-clockwise
  • Movement of eyes from left to right and vice versa.

  • Rubbing your palms on each other until they get warm, and then place them immediately on your eyes to feel the warmth. Repeat at least two to three times.
  • Do Trataka meditation

For better results do the above-mentioned exercise at least five times for good eye health.

Trataka Meditation:

Light up a candle or a diya. (If possible try to light up a ghee diya.) Place it at such a place that it should be in a straight line with your eyes & keep it away from you at a distance of one and a half meters. Sit in a comfortable sitting position on the ground. Start staring at Diya without blinking the eyelids. Continue this process until water comes from your eyes. Then gently rub your palms until they get warm and place on your eyes. This is an ideal way of practicing trataka meditation. Try to carry out this process in a dark room and avoid heavy and powerful light exposure after doing trataka.

Some Ayurvedic and panchakarma remedies:

Common treatment

  • Take Triphala churna (250mg) with an uneven quantity of ghee and honey twice a day.
  • Have a spoonful of Chyavanprasha in the morning empty stomach.

Panchakarma Therapies:

Paadabhyanga: Paad means limbs or legs whereas abhyanga is the application of oil. The procedure of application of oil to the legs especially to the sole or feet is called paadabhyanga. As per Ayurvedic text feet originate two types of naadi which are responsible for the health of both eyes. Doing daily paadabhyanga helps to improve vision and conserve health.

Netra Tarpan: It is a process of pouring melted medicated ghee over eyes held in a vessel made up of black gram flour dough. The word tarpan is referring to calmness. It also means to give strength. The netra tarpan process provides strength to eyes at different levels of the eye structure such as Pakshma Mandal, Shukla Mandal, Krushna Mandal, Tara Mandal, etc.

Raktamokshana: Raktamokshana is a process of letting out blood through various bloodletting procedures. Most of the eye disorders or diseases are due to Rakta and Pitta imbalance. To flush out this vitiated dosha from the body Raktamokshana procedures tend to be more effective. This procedure helps to rebuild and reform microcells in the eye region.

Nasya: Nasya is a procedure of introduction of medicated oil or ghee through the nostrils. This process helps to strengthen the eyes by alleviating the Vata dosha responsible for various eye disorders.

Other panchakarma procedures such as Vamana, Virechana, and Basti also have their benefits in maintaining eye health and eliminating toxins from the body. These three panchakarma procedures are done according to necessity and condition according to the disease.

A Simple Ayurvedic Diet Plan For Every Person To Be Healthy: Part 3

In the last two blogs we have seen about roti, daal, sabji & rice. Moving on to other components of Indian platters in this blog we will discuss lentils, food timing, and Pathya, or the right way of consuming water.

Beans or lentils:

All lentils like Rajma, Chana, Chole, Matki, and Watana are advised to be eaten in lesser quantities or avoided if have bloating or gas issues. If you have been advised  to consume then  first roast it on the pan medium flame for a few minutes, then add asafoetida (hing), curry leaves, garlic, ginger, and coconut paste and pressure cook it and give simple tadka without having much masala.

Sprouts are advised to avoid totally as they are responsible for creating the imbalance in all three doshas. (Details will be seen in another blog or post on Instagram @ayurvidhi_clinic).

Timing for meal:

Ayurveda suggests eating your meal whenever you feel hungry it’s the right time to eat. But still for the sake of understanding as per the Ayurveda biological clock lunch should be done between 10.00 AM to 1.00 PM & dinner should be between 5 PM to 7 PM is the best time for your meal.

Instruction while eating food: Chew foods properly, have small bites, avoid discussion or talking, and use a mobile or TV while eating food.

These are some small changes that can improve your gut health and digestion.


Always try to consume water after boiling and cooling it. Consume water only whenever you feel thirsty, and try always to drink water while sitting by taking sip by sip.

Avoid drinking water immediately before and after meals. One can have a little amount of water while having a meal for good digestion of food.

Avoid drinking water directly from the fridge, to avoid gastric issues. One can have lukewarm water in the cold season. In the summer season one can cool water stored in earthen-wear pot.
