If you experience numbness or tingling in your hands and feet, it means that you suffer from bad circulation. When you have bad circulation in your hands and feet, it means that your body doesn’t get enough blood flow.
A greasy substance, known as thrombocyte, accumulates inside the walls of the arteries and the veins, blocking the blood vessels and interrupting the normal blood flow across the blood vessels, which leads to bad circulation.
Bad circulation can cause various conditions like: high blood pressure, hypertension, ictus cerebral, varicose veins, arterial peripheral illness, heart illnesses, renal damage, aneurism, arteriosclerosis, Raynaud`s disease and phlebitis.
Conventional medicines, lifestyle changes and alternative therapies can be of a great help in treating this circulatory problem.
