Derived from a Latin word 'varix', which means twisted, varicose is a situation that arises as a result of weak veins. Veins are the carriers of impure blood, from the different parts of the body, back to the heart. When these veins become weak, instead of carrying the blood to the heart, they flow it back, thus resulting in congestion. Though the problem of varicose veins may occur in any part of the body, legs are the most susceptible region. The causes of varicose veins include pregnancy, obesity, long-standing periods and lack of exercise. Varicose veins can, however, be treated using home remedies.
