Do mud baths help with varicose veins?

Mud baths and varicose veins | Benefit or harm

Mud baths or peloid therapy is one of the most ancient types of prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases. There is a huge amount of mud, depending on the origin: hydrothermal, peat, horn, sulfide, etc. In many sanatoriums and medical institutions, patients with varicose veins are convinced that mud therapy is very useful for varicose veins and provide a wide variety of arguments. However, it is not! A slight decrease in edema, severity and pain in the legs during the procedure is possible, but after completion, all these symptoms return again and again. The main effect of mud baths is a positive emotional background and lack of stress.

How can mud baths normalize venous outflow? or to dissolve a blood clot? or to strengthen the venous walls? That's right - not like that! Mud therapy temporarily removes the symptoms of the disease, while varicose disease progresses “quietly”.

The use of medicinal waters (radon, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, etc.) is also not indicated for varicose veins. In "neglected" cases of varicose veins, healing water can provoke phlebitis (inflammation of the veins) or even thrombophlebitis (the formation of blood clots in the veins).

Spa treatment is a good way to relax, replenish vitality, normalize the emotional background and can be used as an addition to laser treatment of varicose veins. However, treatment of varicose veins in a sanatorium is not effective and, most importantly, dangerous.
