What can I do for Poor Circulation/Peripheral Vascular Disease?

Please help us overcome censorship by subscribing to my email updates and sharing my articles with those you love and care about - thank you!

Take note: I've included a heap of supporting information that you must take time to study and take notes from. One of the keys to enduring health and vitality is to have a thorough understanding of what is going on in your body. I want you to be the world's leading expert in your own health - got it!

One of the most common conditions older people seek my assistance with is to help improve poor circulation, mostly affecting the legs, sometimes diagnosed as peripheral vascular disease, intermittent claudication, cramps or even Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This advice is relevant to about 80% of the adult population, especially for anyone with a history of heart disease, poor circulation, or varicose veins.

Please take a few minutes to read this article below then come back here.

Now, take a few minutes to read this story of remarkable reduction of the nasty effects decreasing circulation has on the health of one's periphery, in this case, his legs:


and here:

A lot more has been learned about how to manage peripheral vascular disease since 2008. Let me share what I know more of nowadays.

Keep warm!

Don't keep just your legs and arms warms warm but also your central core. Please take a few minutes to read this booklet which I wrote for Accident Compensation Corporation in 1980 when employed as their Executive Officer, Sports and Recreation.

An additional point not made in the booklet, but relevant to this discussion, is that blood is like gravy: the colder it is, the thicker and stickier it is. So, cold blood does not flow freely. Hence the importance of keeping warm.

Sauna once a week is fabulous for your circulation by warming the blood.

A long holiday on a tropical paradise island with 5-Star service is even better!

Keep moving!


Cold blood that is not flowing rapidly back to the central core where it is warmed, cleansed and reoxygenated, will tend to degrade and coagulate! Please now read this article below to understand Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and how to prevent it.

Be a habitually healthy eater!

I do not think fats are the problem, although I recommend you ensure all foods that you consume, including fat and oil, are from fresh sources and never old and rancid.

Please read this and its related articles:

Possibly the best thing you can do to improve your health are these simple measures that are actually easy to implement:

Do not snack!

Eat just 2-3 main meals per day and do not snack in between. Most people do just fine on two meals a day.

Do not eat if you are not hungry

Wait until your tummy is sending the right signals, wait one more hour, then eat. You'll get used to it with time.

Cut the carbs!

This means any food that is mostly comprised of carbohydrates and sugars (In reality, carbohydrates is sugar).

As a Rule of Thumb: if the food is from a grain source, then leave it out, this is a good way to remove a heap of carbs/sugar from your diet. Many people do not realise that excess carbohydrates, regardless of the source, ends up as fat. When you cut carbs, unless it is organic, you, by default, are reducing your exposure to toxins such as glyphosates.

Read some of these articles about how this poison which is found in foods that are produced by intensified agriculture may drive cardiovascular disease. By the way, I think vegetarians who do not eat organics may be at more risk than others. Read this to understand why:

Get rid of the chemicals in food!

Following on from the previous point: You must ensure everything you eat enhances your health and none detract. Read the labels and look for listings of colourings, flavourings, preservatives, stabiliser and emulsifiers. If you see a list of food additive numbers, then leave this out, it is probably not real food, but a food-like substance that may poison and inflame your body, including your arteries.

Handy Tip: I realise I am repeating myself, but this is really important: by removing foods such as grains and sugar, that have been produced by industrial farming, rather than organic farming, you remove many harmful chemical residues by default.

Take these supplements every day

Before proceeding, please set aside an hour or so and watch the videos in this article:
