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.

Patient Testimonial

“I had bi-lateral knee replacement 7 years ago which left me pain free but with limited range of motion. I received injections to release the scar tissue on 5.21.18. Within 24 hours I was able to stoop down and bend my knees further than before. The scars themselves are smoother and my knees are no longer flat.”

– Beverly

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
