20 Ways To Boost Circulation. Graphic © herbshealthhappiness.com. Lemon photo © AdobeStock 45848537 (under license)
Circulation is a term used to refer to the flow of blood (and lymph fluid) through the human body. The blood transports nutrients, oxygen and hormones to cells and removes carbon dioxide. The circulatory system also maintains body temperature and pH – and as many people know, one of the most obvious symptoms of poor circulation is a difficulty in keeping warm in winter. However, as can be seen, a good circulation plays a vital role in maintaining health and vitality on many levels.
We’ve discovered a great page that lists 20 ways to improve circulation. Some of these were a surprise to me: For example, dry skin brushing. It turns out that this technique opens the pores and stimulates the circulation. I did not know that skin brushing was considered a detox technique, though I have seen it suggested in alternative cancer treatments. It is reported (and makes sense) that skin brushing removes dead skin, including cells that are blocking pores, and thus assists the body to eliminate toxins through the skin.
My next thought was “What kind of brush should be used?” – as this was not mentioned in the original article. Doing a little research, I read that it should be a brush with natural bristles, not synthetic, and the brush should be kept dry and used only for the skin brushing. A couple more tips I read are a) the best time to perform the skin brushing is before a bath or shower. b) the brush should pass over every part of the body once when you are a beginner, and you can gradually increase the number of strokes per session (but the face should not be brushed). c) If you are reddening the skin, you are brushing too hard d) Brush towards the heart.
I was astonished to read that “people may find large amounts of lymph mucoid in their stools a day or two after beginning skin brushing. This is the emptying out of the backlog of mucoid from the lymphatic system and is the effect of detoxifying the lymph system.”  Astonishing! Really? Who would have thought that skin brushing could cause such significant changes in the body. My next logical question: Can one achieve similar benefits through full-body massage? Can anyone chime in on this?
I am fascinated to try this now as some sources are stating that it can cause a real health improvement.
Alright, that’s one out of the twenty, with a few added tips. Here is the link to the full list of 20 ways to boost circulation:
BONUS: We have a page called 10 Herbs For Circulation that lists numerous additional herbs. Also, another item that wasn’t mentioned by the OP – Green tea. Many sources state that green tea can benefit circulation.
So now you have almost 30 methods for improving circulation. Here’s to being a powerhouse of vitality! 🙂
Note – of course, please be aware that this page (as with the rest of this site) is not medical advice. If you have serious circulation issues it could be an indicator of cardiovascular disease. Please consult a medical professional if you have significant symptoms or serious concerns.
