Fitness and Sports


Sedentary lifestyle, sitting or standing work - all this affects our health, and last but not least affected lower limbs.


Excess weight, long-term stay of the person inposition "standing" or "sitting" as well as during long trips in the car, bus, train, plane provoke stagnation of venous blood, disrupting the normal flow of blood, so that the person gets a variety of diseases: varicose veins, thrombosis, thrombophlebitis and others.

Varicose veins are not only distorting the legs - theyare a threat to health, and sometimes a person's life! If you do not begin to treat disease in time, it can develop complications such as sores and most dangerous - pulmonary embolism, which can lead to sudden death.

The saddest thing is that the disease is rapidly veins younger. In twenty years there are already such problems that need surgical intervention.

In order for the blue clusters are not hanging at all, or earlier time, regular preventive maintenance is needed. The sooner you realize this and begin to take care of their feet, the better.

Practising the veins

Carrying out twice a day, some simple exercises, you will be much help to their feet:

1. Lie down on your back, stretch your arms along the body, breath, then lift up the hands and feet and small-small shake them within seconds of ten. Then exhale, return to starting position and repeat this exercise 10 times.
2. Lie down on your back, lift your legs and make them 6-8 strides in different directions, as well as back and forth (scissors).

On the road, when you have to stand for long periods,foot falls especially hard. So take care of them, do unpretentious and inconspicuous to the eyes of others, because of their greater obsession with ourselves, exercise: often change position, shifting from foot to foot, shifting the center of gravity from one foot to another, rolled from heel to toe and back again, rise up on your toes and back.

In general, try to move as much as possiblefeet. If you're standing at the bus stop waiting for transport, it does not stand, as driven, and do not look forward unseparated, waiting around the corner will be the right vehicle. Use this time with benefits - walk around back and forth.

The best posture of varicose veins

Remember, earlier in the magazines often printedcartoons, which received an American calling in our understanding of posture: sitting on a chair and put his feet on the table? What we do seem vulgar and ugly! But in reality, such a posture is very useful for veins, because it causes an outflow of venous blood, which in itself helps to prevent varicose veins.

Of course, I do not encourage you to do it at work,but at home it is quite possible and even necessary to afford to throw tired legs on the coffee table or on the chair seat. And lying on the couch, be sure to place them under the feet roll, which is easy to do, for example, of plaid.

Provokes varicose veins pose "foot to foot." Thus there is a pinching the veins, broken circulation, and stagnant in the lower extremities is provided to you.

Spending all day at the table, try to at leastevery hour to get up and look a bit like or do exercises that are consulted above while waiting for transport. In this case, as relevant as ever the phrase "movement - life." Walk, run, swim, pedal a bicycle - a huge benefit from this not only feet, but the entire vascular system.

Here's another exercise helps to relieve the load off his feet: sitting on a chair, lift your feet off the floor and rotate them in different directions.

Chill to help you

force yourself to do painfully familiar nightly procedure for healthy feet - a contrast shower. It is worth to remember one rule - always need to end the cold water.

Very useful to be "ice massage" FootRowan icicles. To do this, you must either use a frozen juice of the berries, or (in the absence of fresh fruit) to prepare the following: take 2 tablespoons dried berries and pour them 300 ml of boiling water, leave for 2 hours, then strain, cool, pour into special trays and put a freeze refrigerate.

The procedure is to perform massage in the evening, somewherean hour before bedtime. After removing the frozen "Medicine", give him a little melted, and then in a circular motion promassiruyte legs from the bottom up. Wipe his feet after this procedure is not necessary, let the healing liquid to dry herself.

If the cold for the feet, are prone
to disease of veins shown, the overheatingvery different attitude. Avoid steam rooms and feet do not overheat in normal life: if the room is too warm, should not tolerate and sit in woolen socks, shoes and change to a lighter.

To legs were healthy diet is necessary

To keep the vessels of the legs toned eatmore foods rich in vitamins C, D and E. Let the buckwheat porridge will be a frequent guest at your table, but the coffee and black tea should be replaced by green.
