Circulation refers to the body’s blood flow from the heart around to the blood vessels. The circulatory system’s functionality is vital to a healthy body, and if not operating effectively, can lead to irregular blood pressure patterns, arteries hardening, problematic valves, arteriosclerosis, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, leg ulcers and chilblains. Circulation can be enhanced with simple fixes. Think exercise and breathing techniques. Otherwise, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, hydrotherapy, physical therapies, yoga and kinesiology can aid and boost flow.
