Will Varicocele Go Away?
Unfortunately, varicocele typically worsens with time if left untreated. So, when it comes to varicocele natural treatment, the sooner you start the better. The good news is that yes, you can prevent varicocele from progressing, and yes you can reverse varicocele.
Is There a Way to Treat Varicocele 100%?
Varicocele natural treatments are very effective for varicocele. However, there is no 100% cure for varicocele at this time. Surgery and embolization aren't cures. No medication can cure varicocele. No supplement kits or herbs. And not even my treatments. However, my treatments very good, and likely the best option there is for varicocele treatment.
Obviously Results Vary*
Disclaimer: Obviously results vary. This is simply to help you get an idea of how well my treatments have worked for my clients so far. But, really, my recommendations are getting better and better, and I'd say that you should expect better results now. As far as I can tell, my recommendations are the best treatment for varicocele to date. And really, results say everything.
How Long Does It Take?
Now, there is no exact science to how long varicocele natural treatment takes. I'm basing this on my own results as well as the results of thousands of my clients whom I've personally helped. So, while there is likely lots of variation and some inaccuracy, overall these should be pretty representative results.
Grade 1 & Sub-Clinical Varicocele Treatment
It is usually very easy to treat a grade 1 varicocele, and its symptoms (unless another condition is present). My clients typically report great results in as little as a week or two for pain, and great improvements in fertility when tested again. I have also had a good deal of my clients with grade 1 varicocele noting a complete cure!
Grade 2 Varicocele Treatment
Those with grade 2 varicoceles typically get very similar results to grade 1, however, the treatment typically takes a little longer. For pain relief, one to three weeks, great improvements in fertility, and a significant reduction in swelling size in 3 weeks to 2 months. I have also had some clients with grade 2 varicocele reporting a complete cure.
Grade 3 Varicocele Treatment
Weird Diagnostic Criteria: Now, the treatment time for grade 3 varicocele varies a lot because the diagnostic criteria used for grading varicocele sucks. Basically, anyone who has a visible varicocele while standing is considered to have a grade 3 varicocele. So, you may have a very minor grade 3 varicocele that's only mildly enlarged, or you may have a severe grade 3 varicocele that's as big as a golf ball or bigger!
Mild Case: I personally think of a mild-case of varicocele being one with little or no symptoms. A mild-case grade 3 varicocele is easier to treat than a more severe case that's present with many symptoms. In a mild-case grade 3 varicocele without any symptoms, swelling should reduce by 50-70% over 2-6 months of treatment and maintenance.
Severe Case: A more severe case of varicocele is one that is accompanied with some or many symptoms (i.e. pain, infertility, ED, hormone imbalance, etc.) This was me. It took me about 2 months to alleviate my pain, and maybe 6 months to never experience pain again. My fertility was likely effected (however, I didn't have any sperm test)--but, my shrunken left testicle grew to a normal and plump size in about 4-6 months. As well, my swelling went from a large golf-sized varicocele to a no longer visible varicocele (grade 1). But, that was before I knew all of the best treatments for varicocele, and before I created all of the resources available here for you today. So, with my varicocele guide, resources, and direction, you should be able to get much better results, and more quickly than I did.
Not Getting Results: Just wanted to make a final note: I have had a few clients who did not notice results for a year or two, until they found the one treatment that worked for them--then they noticed a big improvement quickly. So, when it comes to natural treatments, really, it's all about following the best treatments, and finding out what your specific controllable risk factors are--and treating them.
Anyhow, I hope that helps you guys get a better feel for what to expect for how long natural treatments take. What's really good is that the treatments that I recommend don't take more than a few minutes out of your day (1-10 minutes maximum), and often no extra time at all. They're mainly specific lifestyle changes to address the controllable varicocele risk factors. Once you make the changes, they take no extra time. So, really you can be well on your way to treating your varicocele now, with relative ease. I've set you up for success!
Too Much Cooling Is Bad
Okay, when it come to natural varicocele treatment, both over-heating and over-cooling are bad. Natural treatments are really about proper testicular care. Proper testicular care means that keeping them at their normal temperature throughout the day. It does not mean over-cooling.

Cooling Treatment: Benefits for Testicles & Varicocele
Now, as it turns out, our scrotum is typically very over-heated, therefore a cooling treatment is very beneficial for both the testicles and veins. This is a great and easy at home varicocele natural treatment.
Benefits for the testicles: Not only does cooling combat testicular hyperthermia, but it can also help reactivate testicular functions, and enzymes that only activate at lower temperatures.
Benefits for the veins: Cooling the testicular veins helps improve their tone, and forces them to contract--flushing out all toxicity and improving blood circulation.
Varicocele Cooling Treatment
I do firmly believe that cooling is a fundamental component of varicocele natural treatment, which is why I've dedicated an entire chapter to it in the Healing Guide. But, here, I'll share with you 1 simple and effective natural treatment for varicocele.
Important Note: In rare cases, varicocele over-cools the testicles, and cooling treatments are not advised. Remember that the goal is Normal Testicular Temperature!

WHAT IS VARICOCELE?
Varicocele is enlarged testicle veins.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF VARICOCELE?
VARICOCELE PAIN / DISCOMFORT
Varicocele pain or discomfort indicate that the testicles are under stress or are being damaged. The stress and damage are due to improper testicular care and varicocele toxic blood pooling. Some of the damage is reversible and some permanent. The degree of reversible vs permanent damage depends on the severity and duration of the stress. Yes, it is possible to prevent the stress and damage--therefore it is imperative to start a treatment as soon as possible to minimize permanent damage.
Note: Some individuals with varicocele do not experience pain, however do develop varicocele symptoms.
VARICOCELE & INFERTILITY
Symptoms of infertility or impaired testosterone, that are caused by varicocele, indicate that the toxic blood pooling has already damaged the testicles to a significant degree. Normally, much of this damage is reversible, however some damage is permanent. These symptoms are treatable to a large degree, therefore it is important to adhere to a treatment as soon as possible.
HOW DOES VARICOCELE OCCUR?
Many factors contribute to varicocele development. Varicocele normally does not occur for one specific reason. Luckily many of the risk factors for varicocele are controllable. Controllable varicocele risk factors are called lifestyle changes. Poor testicular health, lifestyle factors, and anatomical factors lead to varicocele development. Varicocele is Not a simple genetic disorder of faulty valves.
CAN YOU CURE VARICOCELE?
Without treatment, varicocele typically increases in severity with time. Those with higher grade varicocele typically have worse symptoms and more difficulty treating their varicocele. Therefore, it is highly advised to start a treatment as soon as possible.
It must be noted that there is no 100% cure for varicocele at this time:
Varicocele is not 100% curable because the veins are not swollen, they are actually enlarged. The anatomy is altered. This is because when blood pools in the testicular veins, it pools testosterone with it. The tissue surrounding the varicocele has up to 70X higher testosterone saturation. This causes the veins to hypertrophy (this is also responsible for prostate enlargement).
It is therefore imperative to start a treatment as early as possible to prevent varicocele progression and minimize any damage that is done to the testicles from toxic blood pooling.

There are many people who are pushing supplements as a cure for varicocele. Supplements are Not a cure. Like surgery and embolization, supplement merely address a small portion of toxic blood pooling; they fail to address the critical controllable varicocele risk factors, and are non-therapeutic.
VARICOCELE SURGERY, EMBOLIZATION, & SUPPLEMENTS
Varicocele surgery is not a cure because it simple cuts out the enlarged veins. It does little to address backward blood flow (reflux), nothing to address the controllable varicocele risk factors, and is non-therapeutic. This is why 5-20% of those who undergo surgery a form of treatment re-develop varicocele. It should also be noted that varicocele surgery does not improve pregnancy rates, therefore it is failing to treat the problem.
Embolization is an alternative to surgery. It can be thought of as a quick and dirty form of surgery. While surgery attempts to cut out only the enlarged veins, embolization is inaccurate and therefore blocks off the general area's circulation in an attempt to reduce the vein swelling size. It should be noted that embolization has a higher failure and varicocele redevelopment rate than surgery. Those with right-sided varicocele are advised not to undergo embolization due to high recurrence rates (up to 35%).
Supplements are a minor part of varicocele treatment. Supplements in the form of anti-oxidants help reduce damage to vein valves and walls. Furthermore, some supplements help with venous drainage. However, it should be noted that these changes are minor, as must be accompanied with a proper diet, and proper treatment for good results.
CAN YOU TREAT VARICOCELE WITHOUT SURGERY?
Important: Please see your physician if you think you have varicocele. You must first confirm that you have no other conditions. Many other conditions can cause infertility, testicular pain, and testicle vein enlargement.
Yes, you can treat varicocele without surgery. Using natural treatments, you can:
VIDEO: HOW TO TREAT VARICOCELE WITHOUT SURGERY
Varicocele natural treatments work in 3 way:
1. VARICOCELE: TOXIC BLOOD POOLING
Blood pooling causes testicular hyperthermia, build up of reactive oxygen species (ROS), testicular hyper-hydration, lack of nutrient exchange, and waste build up. Blood pooling is therefore toxic for the testicles.
Surgery is ineffective because it only addresses a portion of toxic blood pooling by cutting out the enlarged veins--but may fail to address blood back-flow (reflux). Surgery is also ineffective because it fails to address the controllable varicocele risk factors, and is not a therapeutic treatment therefore does not help induce healing of the testicles.
Like surgery, supplements also only address a small portion of toxic blood pooling. They help reduce some of the damage done by ROS activity, and may help reduce blood back-flow to some degree (reflux). However, like surgery, supplements fail to properly address toxic blood pooling, do nothing about the controllable varicocele risk factors, and are a non-therapeutic treatment modality, there do little for inducing optimal function.
2. VARICOCELE: CONTROLLABLE RISK FACTORS
We term controllable varicocele risk factors as "lifestyle changes". As it turns out, most varicocele risk factors are actually controllable. There are dozens of lifestyle changes that help treat varicocele. If we had made these simple lifestyle changes at an early age, most of us would not have developed varicocele in the first place. It must be noted that these lifestyle changes take little or no extra time out of your day. Which is a failure of the education system for not teaching proper testicular care in sexual education classes.
Relying on surgery, embolization, or supplements fails to address the controllable varicocele risk factors. This is the main reason for why these treatment modalities have mediocre results at best; they do nothing to address the lifestyle changes.
3. VARICOCELE: THERAPEUTIC TREATMENTS
In the case of testicular pain, infertility, or impaired testosterone, it is critical to perform some therapeutic treatment to help induce healing of the testicles. Example of therapies for varicocele are: Yoga, acupuncture, and quality sleep. Therapies are critical for restoring optimal function.
It must be noted that surgery and embolization are not therapeutic treatment modalities. They simply attempt to address toxic blood pooling--which is the reason why testicular pain before surgery continues after surgery and fertility does not improve.
VARICOCELE NATURAL TREATMENT OPTIONS
I hope that the above information was informative and helpful for you. As someone who suffered from varicocele and the misinformation that's out there about surgery, embolization, and the supposed genetic cause of varicocele, I took it upon myself to help make natural treatment more of a viable option for everyone. I have worked diligently over the past 4 years and have authored The Complete Guide to Natural Healing of Varicocele. Before I started, there was viable no alternative to surgery, now, natural treatments are actually very effective, and I have helped over a thousand people suffering from varicocele naturally treat their varicoceles without surgery. The methodology is simple and works for almost everyone!
