Plan to Live Past 40? You Will Get to Know Vein Disease…

This condition is considered by many as a morbidity to conditions, like coronary vascular disease (CVD) and hypertension, that obstruct or facilitate poor blood flow; however, according to The University of Chicago Medical Center, vein disease is more likely to occur in women between 40 and 49 and in men between 70 and 79.  Of course, these age limits will depend on lifestyle, activity level, and how you eat, but we are living in a society of health disparity and economic greed. This means that food is organically grown for those who can afford “healthy” food and chemically modified for the uneducated masses, who are not as serious enough about their health to grow their own food. The point is that vein disease is a condition we must all be aware of the older we get, and we must manage our lifestyle to prevent the debilitating issues related to it.

The effect of this disease is blot clots that typically form in your legs when blood fails to flow back to your heart and pools in the veins.  Several factors can cause venous insufficiency, though deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins are stereotyped with older and obese populations. Surgery and chemical treatments (like sclerotherapy) can provide relief, but it is better to be proactive in preventing it. Exercise, eat foods that promote blood flow (garlic, vinegar, etc.), and simply stretch your legs after you have been sitting for a while.  Whenever we come across articles written by organizations that educate the community on this health disparity, they are probably non-profits that are requesting donations to support their cause.

Established in 1998 the Vascular Disease Foundation (VDF) is a multidisciplinary national public 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on vascular diseases with the sole purpose of providing public education and improving awareness about vascular diseases. The mission of the VDF is to improve health for all by reducing death and disability from vascular disease. 425_15229532071222452431383574759194.jpeg These are the types of charities that many of my friends @kahsanmusic support because they are battling this condition. Public health awareness is everyone’s responsibility, but I am publishing my #plugin educating the community.
