Varicose Veins Greetings! Wow! The Celebrate Life Festival was a vibrant refuge from the wintry Cape of Storms. It was so good to meet so many readers and advertisers. Thank you for your kind comments and support of our publication which has been going strong since 1974. Congratulations to Anita Ramjee who won the Similasan hamper and two free passes to the Celebrate Life Festival. This issue, learn about Permaculture from Akan Moringa and stand a chance to win one of three hampers of Akan Moringa products. Make space in your diaries for Cape Town’s International Kite Festival happening the first weekend in November and support Cape Mental Health. There’s something fun for everyone and it’s always fascinating to see the different kinds of kites flying above Sandvlei.

Defects in the venous wall allow for dilation of veins and damage to valves. This valve damage increases static pressure, causing bulging known as varicose veins. Risk factors include obesity which increases the pressure up to 10 times, standing for long periods which increases the loss of tissue tone and muscle mass, and pregnancy. Significant symptoms are uncommon but legs may feel heavy, tired and tight. Serious varicosities may lead to thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolism, stroke and myocardial infarction. High fibre diet, adequate fluid intake as well as weight management are part of a treatment plan. Exercise will improve blood flow through the legs. Increasing the integrity of connective tissue and vein walls by the use of Vitamin A, C, bioflavonoids, Zinc, berries. Enhance fibrolytic activity and reduce thrombosis by the use of bromelain, capsicum, Vitamin E, Omega 3 oils.
