Dealing with dizziness

Another culprit might be low blood sugar levels. Ensure that you get some protein at every meal and that you eat frequent, smaller meals or try to snack between your meals.

Another possible cause of your dizziness may be dehydration, so ensure that you're getting at least eight cups a day of fluids. Sometimes just getting some fresh air by going outside or opening a window may bring some relief.

You can help relieve these symptoms by lying down on your left side. Or to help prevent them, try moving around more instead of sitting or standing in one position for a long time.

Be sure to let your practitioner know about your dizzy spells at your next visit as it could be a sign of an underlying problem such as anemia.

Varicose Veins

Normal veins carry blood from your extremities and organs back to your heart. The veins contain a series of valves that prevent backflow of blood.

If these valves are missing or faulty, blood will pool in the viens where the pressure of gravity is greatest, usually in the legs, but sometimes in the rectum or vulva, resulting in bulging.

Varicose veins are more common in those who are overweight.

During pregnancy, pressure on the large veins behind the uterus and leg veins causes the blood to slow in its return to the heart.

This, coupled with the pregnant woman's expanded blood volume and hormone-induced relaxation of the muscle tissue in the veins, can lead to varicose veins in the legs and hemorrhoids (varicose veins in the vagina or around the anus).

Varicose veins look like swollen veins raised above the surface of the skin. They can be twisted or bulging and are dark purple or blue in color.

They are found most often on the backs of the calves or on the inside of the leg, anywhere from the groin to the ankle. Also, veins become more prominent on the surface of the breast.

There may be a mild achiness or severe pain in the legs, or a sensation of heaviness, or swelling. In severe cases, the skin overlying the veins becomes swollen, dry, and irritated.

In most cases, the problem will clear up or improve spontaneously after delivery, or by the time pre-pregnancy weight is reached.

Varicose vein symptoms can be treated with various techniques. From natural supplements surgery, there are a variety of effective varicose vein treatments.
