So, how does blood circulation work?

The blood circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system consists the heart and all the blood vessels that run throughout the entire body. Arteries carry blood away from the heart and your veins transport it back. There are two circulatory systems that comprise of the cardiovascular system. The systemic and pulmonary systems. Systemic circulation basically transports oxygen and nutrient rich blood through our arteries to our organs, tissues (including muscles), and our cells. When it releases the vital substances to our body it takes on waste substances like carbon dioxide and lactic acid. Now that the blood is low in oxygen it is transported back to the heart. Pulmonary circulation occurs when we breathe in oxygen and it enters our bloodstream. So this is how our body works, day in and day out. The heart acts as a pump, transporting oxygenated blood to our organs, then carrying de-oxygenated blood back to our heart.

Blood Circulation

As you can imagine, a functioning circulatory system is vital.

But, what happens to the body when one has poor circulation?

Basically, poor circulations occurs when blood cannot flow freely due to blockages in the arteries.

This can lead to a host of problems, amongst them: high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, organ damage, vertigo and dizziness, muscle cramps, numbness, leg ulcers, blood clots, carpal tunnel, strokes, varicose veins

Slow blood flow also allows fatty acids to clog the heart. This cause high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol. It can also cause blood and other fluids to pool in the legs, which can lead to varicose veins, blood clots and thrombosis. It is no wonder that people with sedentary lifestyles are twice as likely to develop a cardiovascular disease as those who are more active. So what can you do to ensure good blood circulation?

Drink water!

Yes, we all know that water is good for us, but here’s why: blood contains plasma, and plasma is made primarily out of water. When you are dehydrated, blood circulation slows down because plasma gets thicker. A generous daily intake of water will maintain bloods ideal consistency as well as provide oxygen for your blood to transport to cells. Here at Chan Healing Institute Circulation Care can help with improving your circulation by as much as 30% without raising your heart rate. With better circulation, the body will be more efficient in bringing oxygen and nutrients to the cells and removes waste at the same time. Better circulation relieves pressure, inflammation, and other body fluids. Let your body have the means to care for itself by increasing your general blood circulation!
