Circulation Problems

The heart and blood vessels are collectively responsible for maintaining a continuous flow of blood through the body, known as the circulatory system. This provides all the body tissues with a regular supply of oxygen and nutrients, and carries away carbon dioxide and other waste products.

On its journey from the heart to the tissues, blood is forced along the arteries at high pressure. On the return journey through the veins back to the heart, it is at low pressure, kept moving by the muscles in the arms and legs compressing the walls of the veins and by valves in the veins preventing the blood from flowing backwards. Lack of exercise or a sedentary lifestyle may therefore contribute to circulatory problems.

Poor circulation results from an abnormal narrowing widening and thinning of the walls of arteries and veins. Symptoms of poor circulation can range from chest pains (heart attacks) and leg pains (peripheral vascular disease), to strokes. Poor circulation is particularly prevalent in those who are overweight or who drink too much alcohol. Heavy smokers are advised to quit because nicotine reduces the blood circulation in the skin.

If you are having a problem in this area, we can help you, naturally at our Clearwater clinic. For an appointment or more information,call the New Patient Scheduler at 727-466-6789.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
