Dinanlinson Gentle Touch Approach: Yet Another Varicose Vein Treatment Scam
Don’t fall prey to the latest scam about a cure for varicose veins. It’s simply false.
Varicose veins affect about a third of the U.S. adult population, according to one study. Some people seeking relief to combat the unsightly appearance, swelling, cramping, and pain that varicose veins cause may try unproven "cures" touted on the internet.
Lately, the Dinanlinson Gentle Touch Approach has surfaced as a quick fix for varicose veins. But a closer look at its methods for treating varicose veins reveals several at-home therapies already recommended by vein specialists, such as exercise and diet. Upon further research, the Dinanlinson Gentle Touch Approach becomes a new name for a previous scam.
New Name for an Old Scam
A review of the wording from the Dinanlinson Gentle Touch Scam webpage shows that it is strikingly similar to another scam, the Trentvorty Silken Legs Theorem from earlier this year. On the webpage, a woman claims she cured her varicose veins with a combination of exercise, diet, herbal remedies, aromatherapy and special juices to strengthen vein walls. She says she went for "traditional and expensive varicose vein treatments." Rather than finding relief, her varicose veins would persist. The site is also littered with customer “success” stories.
The entire scam is an enticement to buy a book for $27 to learn more about her cures. Nowhere does she claim to be a medical professional. Instead, the scam artist claims that her Dinanlinson Gentle Touch Approach was featured in the New York Times, Glamour, CNN, and on other mainstream media outlets. A quick Google search debunks this.
The webpage also makes the false assertion that surgery does not cure the root cause of varicose veins. In truth, surgery to remove varicose veins is one of the proven methods to eliminate varicose veins. Varicose veins develop when tiny valves in the leg veins weaken, allowing blood to pool within the vein and eventually causing the vein to protrude from under the skin.
Removing or sealing the clogged vein via several minimally invasive and safe and proven procedures restores blood to healthier veins. The varicose vein fades over time. Procedures include:
endovenous laser therapy
You may need more than one treatment to eliminate all varicose veins, and there is a chance that varicose veins may recur. However, most patients find relief after a short recovery period, and your vein specialist will instruct you on how to protect your veins as you heal.
Further, varicose vein treatments are typically covered by insurance, so the cost shouldn’t be out of reach for most people. Center for Vein works with patients on an affordable payment plan.
The self-care remedies touted on the webpage are not necessarily harmful and, in some instances, may provide temporary relief from pain, itching, and swelling. But those methods don’t address the underlying cause of varicose veins, which are malfunctioning vein valves. Only minimally invasive procedures by a vein specialist, not a scam on the internet, can correct that.
