Circulation Problems

What are Circulation Problems?

With aging, many people develop problems such as dizziness, coldness of the hands and feet, flakiness and thinning of the skin on the lower legs, and loss of hair on the lower legs. Although these symptoms may have other causes, poor circulation is among them. People develop poor circulation because of hardening of the arteries. The blood vessels become narrowed by the buildup of deposits of cholesterol, calcium, and fibrous tissue that form hard plaques in the artery walls. Blood flow through these narrowed channels becomes more sluggish, which is another way of saying that the circulation is poor. 1 have discussed the process of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) fully, and we would ask that you refer to it now.

Do not use licorice for more than 7 consecutive days, and avoid it completely if you have high blood pressure. Wormwood can be habit forming if used on a long-term basis.
