Circulatory System Problems

Use Herbs for Circulation Health Remedies

Circulatory system problems result in serious health issues. Symptoms of poor circulation include dizziness, cold hands and feet, and more. Herbs for circulation health help with poor foot circulation.

In addition to dizziness and coldness in the extremities, signs of poor circulation can range from blueness – which can indicate cyanosis (lack of oxygen in the blood); to headaches, to leg cramps, stroke, high blood pressure and more.

Certain behaviors and conditions (such as smoking, diabetes, obesity, thyroid issues, and pregnancy) can result in circulatory system problems.

Your body needs a healthy circulation system; blood needs to circulate through your system.

Treatment for Circulatory System Problems:

Develop Your Own Circulation Therapy Program

There are a number of home remedies and therapies to improve your circulation.

  • For poor leg circulation: use a dry brush on your feet and legs to stimulate circulation.
  • Regular aerobic exercise will help your circulation, and your overall health.
  • Being properly hydrated is good for your circulation and health; drink 8 glasses of water daily.
  • If you smoke, stop smoking. This does sound easier than it is in reality however if you have circulation or other health issues, smoking is going to add to those issues. The nicotine in cigarettes has a negative effect on arteries, constricting blood flow. And the carbon monoxide released in the smoking of cigarettes affects the oxygen in the blood system, also constricting a healthy blood circulation.
  • Don’t sit in one position for long periods of time, for example, at a computer for hours. Get up and move around on a regular basis; at least every hour or two.
  • A daily low-dose aspirin is known to thin the blood and help circulation, however this must be used with the knowledge of your doctor.
  • A daily glass of good red wine is also believed to be helpful in improving the circulation system – however, everything in moderation. Note: A family friend, who is 82 years old now, swears that the secret to his health has been a nightly ritual that includes a snifter of brandy and four squares of good chocolate every evening before bedtime. He’s been doing this for many years and really does appear to benefit from it. Again, check with your doctor first! And keep moderation in mind.

Herbs for Circulation Health

Use natural herbs and natural products to improve your circulation:

  • A popular food supplement, Buckwheat’s small white or pink flowers can be dried and used in a tea preparation (1/2 tsp in 1 cup of water). Not more than a couple of cups of tea per day over a four to eight week period.
  • Evening Primrose Oil contains essential fatty acids that will improve circulation. 1 to 2 500 mg pills daily.
  • Cayenne is good at dilating arteries and improving blood flow. 1 tsp daily in a glass of water (also good with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar and some honey to sweeten the taste!).
  • Fish oils are full of omega-3, a polyunsaturated fatty acid, that improves metabolism and reduces blood ‘stickiness’.
  • Ginko, Ginger and Rosemary are excellent herbs to boost circulation. You can find all these herbal extracts in the proper dose in one product called Circu-Live. This natural, full spectrum tonic is so effective, it’s been registered with the Food and Drug Adminstration. Circu-Live supports the healthy functioning of the cardiovascular, maintain healthy circulation, and adequate oxygenation of the blood to all body tissue and organs.

Note: Always consult a doctor before using home remedies; a mix or combination of home remedies, commercial treatments and/or medicines must be reviewed and approved by a doctor.

Good blood circulation is essential to overall good health (and to a healthy heart). Blood, and oxygen in the blood, needs to flow well through your body. To improve circulation and to handle circulatory system problems use natural old home remedies and circulation supplements.
