We all know it’s important to have a healthy heart, but you may not know about the importance of your microcirculation and the impact that can have on your health, wellness and performance. Are you ready to learn more?
What does your heart do?
Your heart is a pump and usually beats around 60 to 100 times per minute.
With each heartbeat, your heart sends blood throughout your body and carries oxygen to every cell. After delivering the oxygen, the blood returns to the heart. The heart then sends the blood to the lungs to pick up more oxygen. This cycle repeats over and over again. The blood is sent through blood vessels which, together, are known as your circulatory system.
What are capillaries?
Capillaries are the smallest and most numerous of the blood vessels. They form the connection between arteries – which carry blood away from the heart, and veins – which return blood to the heart. The capillaries deliver nutrients and oxygen and eliminate toxins. It’s said that nearly 100 trillion cells in our bodies are fed and cleansed by our capillaries.
What is microcirculation?
Capillaries are part of what is known as microcirculation – the circulation of blood in our smallest blood vessels. Other vessels include terminal arterioles, metarterioles and venules. Almost 74% of all blood vessels in our body are microvessels.
Microcirculation is a vital part of our circulation system and fulfils critical transport functions. It provides oxygen and nutrients to tissues and organs, removes waste products and supports your immune system.
What can happen if you have poor microcirculation?
Limited or malfunctioning microcirculation can cause many conditions of poor health and can lead to faster ageing of your cells.
When the microvessels become constricted and aren’t functioning optimally, you can feel stressed, discomfort, restless, unfocused, low energy and even exhausted. Sometimes, over time, this can lead to premature ageing, impaired cardiac function and diabetes.
On the other hand, if you can improve your microcirculation then you can give your body what it needs to enhance, regulate and optimise its vital functions.
How can you improve microcirculation?
It all comes down to retraining the respiratory centre (medulla oblongata) which is responsible for our breathing. This is directly linked to the levels of oxygenation/microcirculation in your body. The factors that affect it include lifestyle (food, emotions, toxins, overtraining, electropollution etc) and you can find more about the mechanics on this live presentation (click here) that Kostas gave at the Vegfest show.
The smartest way to increase microcirculation is to minimise anything that negatively affects your oxygenation – and vice versa. Then it will be easier to retrain your respiratory centre (click here) and consequently improve your oxygenation and microcirculation.
However, despite all the support, treatments and protocols we offer there are bad influences, temptations, adverts etc. that pull many people back to their old habits. Luckily there is also medical technology available in the market which can assist and make this process much easier and maybe more likely to work long term.
Medical Microcirculation Technology
We work in association with a group of medical doctors who use a medical microcirculation device. This microcirculation device is in use in over 4000 medical clinics, hospitals and universities around Europe: as well as being used by elite athletes and sports teams.
The device uses a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) to deliver a patented bio-rhythmically defined therapeutic signal which activates the body’s self-regulatory mechanisms and supports optimal health.
This means oxygenated red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients through the arteries and capillaries to all of the organs and tissues in your body. As the blood provides oxygen and nutrients to the cells, the cells in turn transfer carbon dioxide and waste products to the red blood cells, which are then processed through the veins and lymphatics.
Using the device stimulates a temporary increase in local blood flow and enhanced muscular performance, so this has a detoxing effect as well.
Other benefits include:
- Vitality and wellbeing
- Stress reduction and relaxation
- Sleep management
This device is extremely easy to use and offers better health and wellness. This technology even has been used by NASA, to assist with the development of undergarments that are designed to promote functional blood circulation and countermeasures for muscle and bone loss degeneration on Earth and space.
The device can also help with the following issues and conditions:
• chronic venous insufficiency
• erectile dysfunction
• post-surgical oedema
• Raynaud’s syndrome
Gastrointestinal & Urinary
• faecal incontinence
• inflammatory bowel disease
• interstitial cystitis
• sleep disorder
• chronic fatigue
• multiple sclerosis
• wound healing
• muscle spasm
• non-union fracture
• Bell’s palsy
• herpes simplex
• gestational diabetes
