Natural options for Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS)

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital vascular disorder in which a limb may be affected by port wine stains (red-purple birthmarks involving blood vessels), varicose veins, and/or too much bone and soft tissue growth. The limb may be larger, longer, and/or warmer than normal. The cause is unknown. In addition to the allopathic treatment, there are natural options for Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS).
