Poor circulation is a problem that affects a large part of the population. According to the World Health Organization, 22% of deaths worldwide are caused by circulatory diseases. Always seeking the health of the body and mind, it is necessary to know the causes and treatments for this type of illness, thus preventing the individual from uncomfortable situations in the future.
What is poor circulation?
The circulatory system is extremely important in the human body. It feeds (carrying oxygen and nutrients to blood vessels) and distributes blood to every vessel in a person. Poor circulation is due to the clogging of the arteries due to excess fat or also due to the pressure exerted on them. One of the main symptoms of poor circulation is the feeling of “numbness” in parts of the body (where nothing is felt in the affected area), swelling (reaching feet, hands and joints), tingling sensation, cramping and pain in the chest.
Main causes of poor circulation
- Lack of physical exercise (sedentary lifestyle);
- Addictions like smoking and alcohol;
- Remaining in the same position for a long time, without any kind of movement;
- Habit of sleeping on top of limbs;
- High cholesterol;
- High blood pressure;
- Expose limbs to intense cold;
- Bad eating habits.
Treatment using teas
This evil can be prevented by putting aside (or trying to overcome) part of the habits described in the list of main causes of the problem. The radical change in eating habits and light physical exercise promise to be allies in combating this disease as well. Not least, there is also the possibility of giving that little strength to the body using natural methods and without harmful factors to health. Tea is a great ally in the treatment of poor circulation . We quote below a useful list, an example of the strength of alternative medicine in the life of the human being affected by this problem:
