Having good circulation is fundamental to good health. The circulatory system is made up of blood and lymph vessels.
Blood moves throughout the body as a result of heart pumping. Providing organs with nutrients and oxygen, blood also carries away wastes for disposal via the kidneys and liver. Blood helps to heal wounds, nourish your brain, and keep your heart healthy.
Lymph vessels carry a clear fluid containing water and blood cells (white, lymphocytes, and plasma). The lymph system is a network of vessels, ducts, and nodes that help to maintain the fluid environment throughout the body, absorption of fatty acids in the intestinal tract, and functions in our adaptive immune system responses. Lymph is moved via muscle movement.
Poor circulation can lead to heart diseases, varicose veins, numbness, lymphatic swelling and more.
Aside from regular exercise, drinking enough water, and a eating a good diet, circulation can be enhanced with massage, dry brushing, body sculpting, fascia blasting/release and herbs. Raindrop Remedies is here to help you with solutions to sooth and comfort.
