Venous leg ulcers – also called venous stasis ulcers - are often caused by varicose veins in the lower legs which is an enlargement and twisting of the veins. Over time, this can progress into the state of chronic venous insufficiency. Pooling of the blood in the veins causes inflammation and the blood starts leaking out of the veins into the surrounding tissue resulting in oedema (or swelling) of the leg and foot. This all causes so much unbalance and internal pressure that an ulcer can form. This can be associated with very high levels of pain.
'It's not too much of an exaggeration to say Acapsil changed my life. From 4 weeks of absolute hell, in pain 24 hours a day, struggling at work and looking at possibly taking time off to being pain-free, getting a full night's sleep and back to normal at work.'
In a clinical study, Acapsil removed the infection is less than half the time than an antibiotic and an antiseptic. It also cut the number of days the patient needed to remain in hospital by one fifth.
Venous leg ulcers are thus caused by an underlying condition. This means that the healing process will take longer than a fresh wound in tissue without underlying issues.
Acapsil will reduce the pain and inflammation in the entire area.
Acapsil will assist and speed up the healing of most VLUs.
If the underlying condition has passed a certain threshold, it will no longer permit full closure, or the ulcer will recur. This situation can only be remedied by removing the cause, which usually means surgical intervention.
Prior to surgery,
Acapsil can help reliably rid the area of infection and reduce the inflammation and pain in the entire area.
Acapsil can speed up the healing process of an existing ulcer.
