The heart and blood vessels are collectively responsible for maintaining a continuous flow of blood through the body. The flow of blood through the circulatory system provides the tissues of the body with a regular supply of oxygen and nutrients and carries away carbon dioxide and other waste products.
The circulatory system is made up of two main parts:
1. The systemic circulation, which constitutes the blood supply to the entire body except the lungs;
2. The pulmonary circulation, which carries blood to and from the lungs, where its supply of oxygen is replenished.
On its journey from the heart to the tissues, the blood is forced along the arteries at high pressure. The return journey through the veins back to the heart however, occurs at low pressure and the blood is kept moving by contraction of the arm and leg muscles. Valves in the veins prevent the blood from flowing backwards. A sedentary lifestyle, as well as a preponderance of xenobiotic influences (i.e. heavy metals, mycoplasmas, virus, fungal/Candida, pesticides, parasites, etc.), may therefore be at the root of circulatory problems.
Poor circulation can result from, or indeed be a causative factor in, disorders of the arteries or veins, such as an abnormal narrowing of the blood vessels, resulting in reduced blood flow and possible tissue damage. It can also create an abnormal widening and thinning of the blood vessel walls, resulting in an increased risk of rupture.
Symptoms of poor circulation can range from Raynaud’s disease to varicose veins, to chest pains and leg pains in cases of severe arteriosclerosis (thickening and loss of elasticity of the artery walls). Poor circulation is particularly prevalent in those who are overweight. Heavy smokers are advised to quit because nicotine reduces the blood circulation in the skin.
