Three years ago I really whacked the inside of my left leg on a table. A vein in that leg swelled from the ankle to the abdomen. It went away pretty quickly but a few months later a cluster of varicose veins developed on the inside of my thigh just above the knee (this is where I hit it).

It doesn't hurt but it's so ugly. Does anyone know what would make them go away? I'd prefer an herbal/natural cure. Thanks for any help.

Blackstrap Mollases (I used the one with sulfur in it and my hair also went to salt & PEPPER not WHITE. Also, no more bad veins of any sort. Mary

Do you drink the Molasses or put it on the veins? Where does one purchase it?

I've tried a line of essential oils applied topically and it has been helpful in reducing many of my spider veins. It takes some time, but you will see a difference. The areas with a large cluster of spider veins did not respond too well, but then again the sclerotherapy solution did not affect them much either. The line is called Healing Natural Oils at amoils.com.

Good luck.

Have you used Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) for varicose veins? What was the outcome? Was it extremely painful? Thanks

I see you live in Texas an you might want to check out a place that I went to in Tyler, TX. It's a vain center with about 11 doctors that is all they specialize in is vains. It is on Troup Hwy very easy to find. The doctors and all the staff are so nice. I myself had both legs done an am very pleased. You might want to check them out. They do everything right there in the vain center.

As far as hurting ...you are awake an all you feel is a pinch. It takes maybe an hour and then you can go home. After they are done you need to walk for 30 minutes...each time we went shopping. I was tired but otherwise felt fine. Sure hope this helps you.

Do any of you know of a varicose vein support group on the web where there are people actively communicating? I've found many groups, but all of them have only a few old, unanswered posts and a few members, who are inactive. I'm mainly interested in groups that you personally know are active, but I'll check out any possibilities you mention, too. Thanks!
