Poor circulation can raise a number of uncomfortable symptoms such as edema (water retention), tingling and numbness of the extremities, fatigue, sensitivity to cold temperatures and possible digestive issues and cognitive issues.
Poor circulation can be caused by atherosclerosis, diabetes, blood clots, weight gain, inactivity and consuming tobacco products. It is encouraged to have poor circulation analysed by your doctor to determine its cause.
Alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise, there are treatments to aid circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage to improve your sense of wellbeing. These treatments include a mechanical massage from LPG Endermologie and photodynamic light therapy such as Reveallux.
It can be prevented with a healthy diet of vegetables and protein, reduced consumption of alcohol, processed sugars, fat and processed foods, regular exercise, weight management and not smoking or quitting smoking.
