Support Hose Store Juzo Freedom to Kick Start LifeDiet and Clothing

You can make a difference on your venous system by doing a few simple things which not only improve your leg health, but will ultimately help improve your overall health.

  • Diet – Make sure you eat plenty of fruits, vegetables (preferable raw) and whole grain products each day.
  • Water – Make sure you drink enough water. Adults need 2 liters of water daily.
  • Shoes – Wear shoes with flat heels and flexible soles.
  • Clothes – Avoid tight clothing that constricts in the pelvic and hip area. Control top garments decrease your circulation. Remember gradient compression is what it is all about. Unless you are a lymphedema patient, we want the most compression at the ankle. The compression should get less as it goes down toward the toes and up towards the torso.

Tips for work and everyday life

Keep the strain off the varicose veins Sit properly – put as little strain as possible on the underside of the thigh – do not let your legs dangle – a hard seat is preferable.
Take Pressure off Veins Running on the spot. If you stand a lot at work, try simply running on the spot from time to time. You can work while you are at it and take the strain off your veins at the same time.
Avoid heavy lifting. Heavy lifting – such as when shopping – pushes the blood back downwards and puts you veins under additional strain. Try to avoid heavy lifting – take a shopping bag on wheels.
