Today Dr. Reminga talks about the body’s circulatory system and how to keep it healthy... even as we age. Enjoying good health and being able to participate in an active lifestyle depends heavily on the bodies ability to circulate our blood. Every area of the body needs life-sustaining blood to function properly… from the heart and brain all the way to the fingers and toes. The bodies circulatory system is similar to the highways you might find is a large city… after years of hard use, the roads become more difficult to travel due to wear and tear. How well the roads are maintained, and… the amount of traffic and congestion... all factor in when determining how long it will take for you to reach your destination. Our arteries and veins help to move blood through our bodies similarly. The VEINS carry the blood towards the heart and the ARTERIES carry the blood away from the heart. When blood flow to a part of the body is reduced… circulation is impaired. Poor circulation is MOST common in the feet, legs and arms as they are furthest from the heart.

Dr. Reminga goes on to explain how the aging process affects our body’s circulation. He also discusses varicose veins which can be a problem for aging women. Have you ever wondered if having varicose veins can cause serious problems? Dr. Reminga has the answer to that question as well. Finally, he answers the question… What can we do, as we age, to help our circulation? There are preventative measures that can help your body circulate blood flow. Find out about the tell-tale signs of poor circulation in this interesting program.
