Home Remedies For Phlebitis

If you know you have phlebitis-an inflammation of veins, usually in the leg-chances are that you are under a doctor's care and should be.

You probably developed phlebitis because you were recovering from childbirth, surgery or were somehow incapacitated and inactive for a long period of time. This inactivity decreased the blood flow in your veins and allowed clots to form. Blood clots are potentially very dangerous.

After the acute care has been medically completed, pay strict attention to optimal diet, optimal bowel function, optimal weight and exercise and meticulous body hygiene-nose, ears, mouth, tongue and gums, fingernails, legs, feet, toes, toenails, scrotum or vulva-to prevent complications and recurrence.

Natural home remedies

Herbs that assist in vein health include butcher's broom, hawthorn and horse chestnut. All are available at health food stores. Follow the recommended dosage on the label.

Check with your doctor about the following suggestions. We're certain he/she will agree that these cannot harm you. And they sure as heck can help dissolve blood clots!

  • Apply a comfrey poultice on the outside of the affected area.
  • You should be eating a raw vegetable diet. It's important to have leafy greens, plus lots more roughage.
  • Drink lots of fresh juices.
  • Take garlic or goldenseal for inflammation.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of lecithin every day.
  • Follow your physician's instructions and elevate the affected area for as many hours a day as possible. This will keep the blood circulating properly.
  • Apply garlic oil or vitamin E oil to the affected areas for inflammation.
