Herbs have traditionally been used to assist a person to come back to a healthy state of well being. Individual herbs, specifically prescribed for a particular situation may assist the body to come back into balance, thereby allowing a healthy homeostasis to be reinstated as nature intended. The herbalist looks to the whole person, their values and attitudes as well as their circumstances and physical condition along with other aspects of their individuality. This is in marked contrast to the allopathic medicine approach.
Below you will find an example of selected herbs for a particular condition. Herbal support can take a variety of forms and combinations, so it is vital that each person consult directly with a qualified holistic practitioner to gain the full benefit of immunity and health building support.
Embolisms are the result of a thrombus (clot) in the deep veins that has
become dislodged from the vein wall and is now floating along in the blood
stream which can then lodge in a narrow artery and obstruct blood flow.
the embolism travels from the legs and depending on its size it can obstruct
pulmonary arteries and quickly cause death.
Embolisms are not to be confused with phlebitis which is a painful condition
of inflamed varicose veins but is relatively harmless.
There are three main reasons for deep vein thrombosis.
About half the sufferers of DVT have no symptoms at all.
in the others with inflammation and blood flow obstruction there can be
swelling and pain in the calf, also the ankle , foot and thigh depending on
the veins affected.
- Slowing of blood flow as in prolonged bed rest and/or inactivity due to
sitting while travelling.
- Injury to the lining of the vein as in surgery.
- Increased tendency for blood to clot as in some cancers and rarely with
contraceptive use .
The edema is worse towards the end of the day and
subsides over night when the legs are raised.
A late symptom is a discolouration of the skin above the ankle where red
blood cells have escaped into the skin, this skin is very vulnerable and is
easily injured causing ulcers.
Prevention for those having surgery or sitting for long periods can be
simple in the habit of flexing and extending feet.
A herbal mix for this condition includes Mistletoe, Nettle ,Rue, Oats,
Fenugreek, White Willow, Black Cohosh and Garlic along with the Bach Flowers
Wild Oats, Honeysuckle, Cerato, Vine and Beech.
Legs carry us forward in life, so leg problems indicate on an emotional
level some reluctance or fear of moving forward.
Clots, swelling and stiffness indicate a stagnation in emotional thinking,
a difficulty being flexible.
