Many of you have written to me telling me that you’ve been diagnosed with a certain circulatory disorder and you are wondering if my programs can help. Oftentimes, your diagnosis is ambiguous and treatment options are vague. Many of you don’t know why circulation is so important to the body.
The short answer is oxygen. The organs and tissues of the body need oxygen not only to survive but to perform optimally. Blood is the delivery system for oxygen. If that delivery system is blocked or slowed, the effects can be potentially life threatening – both initially and over time.
When describing circulatory disorders, there are essentially two different groups in which they fall: heart disorders (disorders including the heart and/or its valves and arteries) and blood disorders (disorders affecting red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, enzymes and/or plasma).
The list of heart disorders is vast. Some of the more common types of heart disorders are: Heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, heart failure, congenital (from birth) defects, and heart muscle disease.
Indication of heart disorders can involve: chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, poor circulation, hypertension (high blood pressure), hypotension (low blood pressure), tachycardia (pulse over 100 beats per minute) and bradycardia (pulse under 60 beats per minute), nausea, dizziness, numbness in limbs, fainting and perspiration.
Risk factors involve: high blood pressure (although refered to as a symptom above, chronic high blood pressure can, over time damage the heart and other major organs), high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, smoking, inadequate physical activity, heredity, stress and too much alcohol and/or drug use.
Just as there are numerous types of heart disorders, the same can be said for blood disorders. Some of the more common blood disorders include: reduced numbers of white blood cells (leucopenia and its associated diseases), a reduced number of red blood cells (various anemias), reduced platelets (thrombocytopenia and its associated diseases), too many red blood cells (polycythemia) or too many white blood cells.
Futhermore, some blood disorders are due to sparse or abnormal blood clotting.
Symptoms of blood disorders include: fatigue, shortness of breath, weight loss, fever, bruising, chest pain, irritability, numbness and/or coldness in hands and feet, headache, pale skin and excessive bleeding .
Causes of blood disorders include: vitamin deficiency, blood loss, certain chronic illnesses, genetic disorders, side effects of certain drugs, and cancers of the cells.
Because the list of symptoms for each type of circulatory disorder is so vast and they oftentimes overlap, it is important to see your doctor to verify your condition. For some of the circulatory disorders (especially the blood disorders), medication may have to be an option. This can be scary to many (including me) because all medications have side effects, many of them dangerous.
For other conditions, medication may be only one method of treatment and there are frequently, more natural methods of treatment, such as exercise, diet and/or getting your necessary amount of vitamins and minerals. The key is to insist that your doctor explain the benefits and possible problems of all therapies.
