Did you know that the underlying problem of many chronic conditions is poor micro-circulation?
Understanding Microcirculation. What is micro-circulation? It is an incredible network of small arterioles, venules and little capillaries that distributes blood throughout the body – about 60,000 to 70,000 miles. This system delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells and transports all waste products away from the tissues. It is one of the most important aspects if not the most important aspect of well-being. Our macro-vessels in contrast make up only 26% of the vessel system. Only they receive blood due to the heart pumping.
If micro-circulation is impaired, it will lead to impairment of cell function. Chronic diseases develop usually over many years. That means the break-down in circulation has been going on unnoticed. Extensive research in Europe in the field of Information Medicine has led to a new cutting edge approach to regulate and positively influence micro-circulation.
When you experience impaired blood flow throughout the capillary system, your tissues will not receive the required amount of oxygen and nutrients needed for cellular function. Oxygen is necessary for the production of ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate). Without ATP the cell is not able to maintain itself.
Why is ATP so important?
ATP is our energy source and is required in large amounts. A human body needs about its own body weight of ATP daily. Unfortunately, the body does not store it somewhere. It is used up within seconds to maintain cell membrane potential (a voltage charge on the cell membrane) and protein synthesis (repair proteins, enzymes, hormones, information proteins, etc.)
An optimal level of cell membrane potential assures that oxygen and nutrients can enter easily and wastes can exit the cell. That means the cell will perform well. If ATP is lacking, the cell membrane potential is disrupted and the cellular function diminishes. Therefore, if a body lacks ATP, the origin can be found in inadequate oxygen supply and impaired micro-circulation. A prolonged condition will lead to chronic ATP deficiencies and then to chronic conditions. By the time symptoms manifest, the underlying issues have been going on unnoticed.
Micro-circulatory blood flow can be improved substantially. It depends on a specific physiological process call Vasomotion, the rhythmic contraction and relaxation action in pre- and post-capillary small blood vessels. Stimulating vasomotion is the key to increase blood flow into the capillary beds. Vasomotion occurs in larger calibered arterioles due to superior regulated mechanisms, but in small calibered arterioles it functions completely autonomous. So far, western medicine lacks effective methods for this area of our cardio-vascular system. However, a promising technology from Europe shows through scientific research that it can be done. It may change the course of medicine.
