Circulatory Disorders and Blood Pressure

By Christian Goodman

A lot of you have written to me telling me that you've been diagnosed with a certain circulatory disorder and you are inquistive if my programs can help. A lot of times, your diagnosis is ambiguous and treatment options are unclear. Several of you don't know why circulation is so important to the body.

In essence oxygen is the answer. The organs and tissues of the body count on 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 possibly life threatening - both initially and over time.

When referring to circulatory disorders, there are actually two different groups in which they fall: heart disorders (disorders consisting of 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 massive. Some of the more frequent types of heart disorders are: Heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, heart failure, congenital (from birth) defects, and heart muscle disease.

Symptoms of heart disorders can include: 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 include: high blood pressure (although mentioned as a symptom above, chronic high blood pressure can, over time damage the heart and other major organs), high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, smoking, lack of physical activity, heredity, stress and excessive alcohol and/or drug use.

Just as there are many 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.

Warnings of blood disorders consist of: 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.

On account of the list of symptoms for each type of circulatory disorder is so enormous and they frequently overlap, it is critical to see your doctor to confirm your condition. For some of the circulatory disorders (in particular the blood disorders), medication may have to be an option. This can be scary to many (including me) since all medications have side effects, and a lot of them dangerous.

For other conditions, medication may be only one method of treatment and there are oftentimes, more natural methods of treatment, such as exercise, diet and/or getting your required amount of vitamins and minerals. The key is to insist that your doctor explain the benefits and potential complications of all therapies.
