Health Tip of the Week

self-management tips for managing varicose veins

 

Controlling or eliminating varicose veins on your own is not possible. But with some self-care, you can help minimize their intensity and even potentially reduce how many you develop. To do so, start following these self-care tips:

 

  • Start walking: If you don’t already walk regularly for exercise, consider doing so. The movement encourages proper blood circulation in your legs, which can help you manage varicose veins.
  • Be mindful of your attire: Shoes with low heels will work your calf muscles more than high heels, which is better for your veins. Opting to not wear tight clothing around your groin, waist, and legs can also help you improve your blood flow.
  • Avoid sitting with crossed legs: This position can potentially decrease circulation, a direct factor in varicose veins.
  • Add variety to lengthy standing or sitting positions: You can increase your blood flow by changing your position from time to time when sitting or standing for long durations.

No theoretical approach can take into account all of the factors in the markets in general and the impact of decisions that might have been made during the actual operation of an index. Actual returns may differ from, and be lower than, back-tested returns.
  • The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices are the leading measures of U.S. residential real estate prices, tracking changes in the value of residential real estate. The index is made up of measures of real estate prices in 20 cities and weighted to produce the index.

  • Past performance does not guarantee future results.
  • You cannot invest directly in an index.
