Buerger’s Disease Treatment
1. Horse Chestnut Treats Buerger’s Disease Symptoms.
A group of molecules called ‘aescin’ present in the plant improves blood circulation and reduces the possibility of any blockage. The active compound takes 12 hours to work. Therefore, it should be taken at a gap of 12 hours. Take 300mg of horse chestnut extracts twice regularly to ease the Buerger’s disease symptoms.
2. Red Sage Is Buerger’s Disease Treatment.
Danshen or red sage herb acts as a blood thinner. It prevents the formation of blood clots by regulating circulation. But remember, do not consume the herb with other blood-thinning medications as it can critically lower blood pressure levels. Therefore, prepare a tea by boiling one teaspoon of dried red sage herb in a cup of water. Consume twice or thrice daily.
3. Peach Leaves Cure Buerger’s Disease Symptoms.
Peach leaves are laxative, detoxifying as well as diuretic in nature. A tea prepared with these leaves removes harmful bacteria and maintains clean blood flow in the body. Therefore, add 20-30 dried peach leaves in 2 liters of water. Boil the water for 10 minutes and let steep for another 15 minutes. Strain the infusion and drink throughout the day.
