Does Crossing Your Legs Really Cause Varicose Veins?

Sep 09, 10 Does Crossing Your Legs Really Cause Varicose Veins?

do crossed legs cause varicose veins?Growing up mi tia always reminded me to be a lady and cross my legs, especially while in the presence of Papito Dios. Only recently did I suddenly become a skeptic of this notion, thinking that crossing my legs could very well be a cause for varicose veins. You know, those unsightly bulging veins that can come in different colors; mostly bluish hues, found on the legs of our mamis, tias, and abuelitas alike. After further research, it turns out that crossing your legs is just an old wives’ tale and really isn’t the culprit, but several other factors are; the main one being unavoidable: genetics.

This means that if the women in your family have them, eventually you may suffer from them too.  Fortunately our ancestry also provides us with remedies passed on through generations. Calendula, or its common name, Marigold, comes from the term Mary’s gold, which refers to the Virgin Mary. Often held as a sacred flower, because of its powerful healing properties, it also has beauty and magical qualities. The calendula is a widely adored flower throughout Mexico, as well as the all over the world. Now we have reason to adore this flower too! Calendula can be made into a cream to shrink and reduce the pain and swelling of varicose veins. It can be massaged onto veins anywhere on the body. A natural alternative to vein removal (instead of those costly and scary surgical procedures, ay!), calendula cream is available at a price you can afford and is easy to use. Simply using this formulated cream for a period of time can help shrink varicose and spider veins as well as diminish their appearance, giving you much more attractive and smoother legs…crossed and all.”

    Varicose veins are distinguished from reticular veins (blue veins) and telangiectasias (spider veins), which also involve valvular insufficiency, by the size and location of the veins. :’,:

    All the best to you <
