news paper 2What happens when the circulation slows down or worse stops?

There is a good chance that if you are on the road a lot or you have an office job, there might be an issue with circulation.

Do you experience:

  • Cold feet and toes – even in the warm season
  • Cold hands and fingers
  • Numbness in certain parts of your body – generally extremities
  • Frequent dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Dry skin despite regular consumption of water
  • Hair loss
  • Lack of energy
  • Water retention in your feet
  • Varicose veins
  • Blemishes or spots on your skin
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty catching your breath
  • Feelings of pins and needles in extremities

 

What can be done to support this?

Examine what is being eaten.  Get rid of processed foods, artificial anything, foods cooked in high heat oil, and add good fats, vegetables, and fruits (in moderation).  Pick high nutrition foods to eat.  Spices can support the thickness or thinness of the blood. Don’t worry, spices don’t have to be hot, such as ginger, ginkgo biloba, and garlic, but cayenne is a good one too.  So many highly nutritious foods can support good health.  Try them all they all have huge benefits.

Get moving.

I know that exercise is a challenge for drivers and office workers, but take advantage of every opportunity possible.  Even if it is just for 5 min.  Bounce, jump, walk around, find a walking trail, step up the pace and try brisk walking, take the stairs, stretch, use weight resistance, squats, and toe touches, anything that gets the blood pumping.

You know your body better than anyone else.  Do what you know you can do and IF you can increase it daily, build it up as much as you can.  Get that circulation pumping!  It is important to your health.
