Blood microcirculation can directly affect Raynaud’s phenomenon
Microcirculation are the smallest blood vessels in the cardiovascular system, your organ system that passes nutrients, blood cells, hormones and more to and from cells in the body to help fight diseases, stabilize body temperature and overall maintain the body.
Your blood is kept in continuous motion, flows in a closed circuit from the heart to arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules (small veins), veins, and then back to the heart. Microcirculation can be considered a “keystone of life” for the delivery and removal of substances in the metabolism of every tissue cell.
When your body doesn’t send enough blood to the hands and feet there may be a problem with blood flow. For the first time in the mid 1800’s this condition of impaired blood circulation and microcirculation was described by a French doctor Maurice Raynaud – the name of Raynaud’s phenomenon – a circulatory disorder in which the blood supply to the hands and feet is reduced.
In normal physiological conditions, the optimal regulation of this process is accomplished through the control of the state of tension of the smooth muscle cells present in the vascular wall, which ultimately determines the maintenance of three different homeostatic processes, namely the maintenance of fluid balance, the delivery of blood to each microscopic domain of the tissues, and the maintenance of the systemic blood pressure.
How can Far Infrared therapy help?
Far Infrared therapy is a Naturopathic Technology that improves the natural healing processes in the human body. FIR penetrates deep into the body, gently elevating the body’s temperature and stimulating bodily healing mechanisms.
Infrared Benefits for Blood Microcirculation
- Increasing blood micro-circulation in the hands
- Faster blood flow
- Rejuvenating blood vessels, capillaries, and nerves
