Julie’s Story – Varicose Veins – Vein Clinics of America

(lively music) – Hi, my name Julie
Kieras and I’m a patient at Vein Clinics of America. I go to the Canton clinic
and see Dr. Zambuto. I first started noticing
there was something wrong with my veins when I was quite young. I was about 15 or 16 when
I noticed a spot on my leg, and I wasn’t sure what it was at first, and then it turned out to be my veins. And as I got older, my veins started to become more prominent, and in my twenties, I developed a lot of itching and throbbing,
and a lot of discomfort down in my veins in my calves. And I wasn’t sure what to do about it. I didn’t know about vein disease. I thought it was something superficial. I thought it was something
I should just live with. Some of the therapies I’d heard about seemed very invasive, and
I didn’t wanna try those. So, I just lived with it. I got older, I had children,
and with pregnancies, the veins even got worse. So, by the time I was in my thirties, I had some significantly visible, bulging, greenish-looking veins on my legs. It wasn’t good. I was very self-conscious
about whether people would notice what was
happening with my veins. And also, I dealt with, just
daily, being uncomfortable with the itching and the throbbing. So, one day, my sister told me she had been going to
Vein Clinics of America, and she told me all about how easy it was to go in and get a free consultation, and find out if there was
anything they could do, or how bad your vein disease was. So, I went in and I got a
consultation with Dr. Zambuto. And, it was very comfortable and relaxed, and right away, he told
me that I did, in fact, have some significant
vein disease going on, and that their laser therapy
could take care of it. So, I decided to go through the process of getting vein therapy. Immediately after I
had some laser therapy, I noticed that the
visible veins went down. I didn’t have the bulging veins, and as I started to heal from the process, I no longer had the itching and throbbing. And so, I also felt more comfortable. And so now, going about day to day, I didn’t have the
itching or the discomfort or the tired leg. I didn’t worry about
whether people were looking at my legs and wondering
what was wrong with them. And, I just felt like,
finally that had been taken care of for me. I run a family and parenting website, called happystronghome.com, and on that site, I
write about family life, natural wellness, and activities
you can do with your kids. So, I really reach out to other moms and talk about activities and crafts, travel, wholesome living, and just ways that families can cherish
every moment with their kids. And this work has also
given me a great opportunity to reach out to my community, and actually be part of a local TV show
segment, where I present different topics for
families, for parents, products they can use with their kids, crafts and games and activities that they can do throughout the year. When I first got my
consultation with Dr. Zambuto, he told me that, for
my age, my vein disease was actually pretty progressed. And so, it had actually
been something significant. It wasn’t superficial. It was actually a disease
that could’ve caused me more problems down the road. So, I was thankful to be
able to take care of it now, and get to now enjoy healthy legs, and legs I don’t even think about anymore because now I don’t have to. I’m really glad I took the time to go into Vein Clinics of America. Without the help of Dr. Zambuto and Vein Clinics of America, I don’t think my legs would
feel as great as they do today.
