Varicose Veins & Hemorrhoids - our fave subject 😳

Uncategorized Feb 27, 2019

“Honey, can you take a look at this?” Unless our partners have already shown us THEIRS, we’re not going to be too excited showing OURS.

Hemorrhoids & varicose veins go hand in hand. Both are visible / palpable symptoms of vein health. Or rather, vein walls that aren’t able to provide the support we wish they would.

Most common for the first time birthing person are hemorrhoids after birth. Even with gentle, exhale-breath pushing, the process itself can create hemorrhoids.

Great! Now we get to sit on our butt and breastfeed for weeks...the joy!

For those with familial history of varicose veins, not only are hemorrhoids more likely, but a hidden suprise - VAGINAL varicosities or LABIAL varicosities 🥰. You’ve got to be kidding, right?

I get so many txt messages from clients who find someTHING where nothing should be. It can also be a vein that partners can’t see due to the location.

SOLUTIONS

  • Overall vein health for every.body.
    • Essential Fatty Acids - fish oils & flax oils help us create strong vein walls
    • Vitamin C (especially red/yellow/orange peppers)
    • Legs Up The Wall yoga 🧘‍♀️ position
      • Add something weighted (like a rice sock) on the feet up the wall to encourage blood flow
      • In pregnancy, with one hip on just a small towel / roll, this is AMAZING at decreasing the sense of heaviness in the pelvis at the end of the day
  • Specific Treatments
    • Perineal Balm from EarthMamaAngleBaby
    • Diosamin + Hesperidin (concentrated bioflavonoids) suppplements *of course, talking with your provider
    • Belly + vulva support bands (amazing, seriously)
    • Acupuncture! Seriously. Acupuncture the where it’s at for this
      • Email 📧 for a list of our fave acupuncturists OR if you have any other suggestions!
