Cold feet, edema, varicose, pain? Other circulatory disorders? We can help

Poster The Art of Life: Cold feet, edema, varicose, pain? 
Other circulatory disorders? We can help

The circulatory system also known as cardiovascular system consists of heart, blood vessels, and blood. This system is responsible for circulating blood to our organs. Blood carries oxygen, nutrients, and collects cellular waste products and CO2 throughout our body. Our circulatory system is powered by our heart.

A circulatory disorder is any disorder or condition that affects the circulatory system. Circulatory disorders can arise from problems with the heart, blood vessels or the blood itself. Disorders of the circulatory system generally result in diminished flow of blood and oxygen supply to the tissues. Problems of the circulatory system are common and can be serious. Taking care of our circulatory system is crucial while any irregularities can affect directly or indirectly a specific organ or your body as a whole.

There are variety causes of circulatory problems such as: aging, smoking, alcohol consumption, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, varicose veins, and lack of exercise, general muscle weakness. In general all those causes form 5 groups: traumatic, compressive, occlusive, tumours/malformations and spasm of the artery, which diminishes its diameter and so, the blood flow.

Circulatory problems may occur more commonly in individuals with certain diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, or kidney failure, or in dialysis patients. Occupational exposure (vibrating tools, cold) can be a factor, and smoking also can aggravate and cause circulatory disease.

Some of the most common symptoms of poor circulation would include:
  • cold feet and toes (not only during winter)
  • cold hands and finger
  • pain and cold intolerance
  • colour changes in the fingertips
  • numbing or tingling sensation in the limbs
  • ulcers which do not heal
  • oedema, swelling and water retention (especially in the feet)
Although we know that weight management, a healthy diet rich in omega 3 and vitamin E, intravenous vitamin injections, regular exercise and not smoking can help circulatory disorders but patients with severe problems may require surgery.

In a lot of cases patients cure may be given by physiotherapy, exercise and massage; compression therapy (lymphatic drainage; oxygen therapy; combined infrared and electromagnetic therapy; gentle vibration (chi-machine) therapy and other natural approaches to improve blood flow, heal tissue and relieve pain, inflammation and fatigue.

We recommend Infrared Body Wrap and Compression Therapy, in order to reduce symptoms and improve circulation.

The result of Infrared Therapy will:
  • enhance blood flow by increasing the temperature in the targeted organ
  • increase the diameter of the vessel by relaxing the smooth muscle in the blood vessel wall which in return enhance the blood flow
  • boost the metabolism in the affected organ which also increase the blood flow
The professional medical device of the Compression Therapy or Lymphatic Drainage:
  • applies gradual pressure to muscles and veins to help the optimal blood flow
  • pushes back and returns the fluids into veins and lymphatic vessels
  • massages the limbs starting from toes and comes up step by step to the upper limbs
  • decreases heart contraction by helping blood flow back to the heart
By using both Infrared and Compression Therapy at the same session of treatment will help your limbs have more blood flow carrying more nutrients and oxygen while preventing swelling and edema.

That combination will help with the following problems:
  • Tiered legs, lymphedema, edema after sitting or standing for some time
  • Tiered legs secondary to venous insufficiency and lower limb Edema
  • Cold hands and feet & general muscle weakness
  • Varicose veins & Prevention of deep vein thrombosis
  • Vascular insufficiency due to early stage of Diabetes
  • Muscle spasms, myalgia, fibromyalgia, contracture and more.
Getting the right treatments for your problem will bring you back to healthy and active life.

Managing ADD without Medications. Is It Really Possible?

"Essentially when you spend a lot of time meditating, the brain shows a pattern of feeling safe in the world and more comfortable in approaching people and situations, and less vigilant and afraid, which is more associated with the right hemisphere."
~ Emiliana Simon-Thomas, science director for the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley.

Mindfulness and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

When it comes to child behaviour, including how children should initiate, respond to and participate in learning and play activities, there is no universal guide and playbook. However, in the current age, it seems like ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) have become commonplace terms attempting to pin complex child behaviour into a psychiatric definition. When did we start identifying certain child behaviour as problematic, and moreover, when did we turn a behavioural problem into a medical one?

A child, having a sensitive and rapidly developing brain and personality, should be approached with the utmost care, gentleness and calmness. All children and teenagers require a stable, nurturing and safe environment to experiment and sometimes act out their grievances at the world, at themselves, peers and parents. Hence, we have to be very careful not to try to push medications and therapies, striving to get rid of unwanted behavioural characteristics.

The modern health community recommends a combination of counseling, life style change and medications to manage ADHD symptoms. However, will the approaches proposed by mental health organizations effectively transform these behaviour issues into positive behavioural outcomes, or just suppress natural but atypical development?

There is, however, a much more gentle, non-invasive, non-interfering tool available to children and their parents, without any long-term side effects, but only life-long benefits: Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy!

Meditation Science

Mindfulness-based Meditation derives from the ancient Buddhist tradition of meditation and has been adapted specifically for ADD/ADHD youngsters in the form of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy.

By sustained effort and regular practice, participants fall in to a state of non-judgmental awareness of the inner and outer world. This is a much-desired, advantageous position from which many struggles lose their intensity, bringing in clarity and ability to face the world, without over-stressing the consciousness, brain and nervous system.

The more this ability improves, the better we will be able to glide through the storms of life. And this is accessible to any human being of any age through Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction therapy – MBSR.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy

The physical benefits are numerous, as the body thrives much better when the mind is at peace. Functional MRI scans of the brain have revealed that “when you spend a lot of time meditating, the brain shows a pattern of feeling safe in the world and more comfortable in approaching people and situations, and less vigilant and afraid.”  [Source: sfgate.com: Stanford studies monks' meditation, compassion: Medical research]

When it comes to helping children with ADD/ADHD, the responsibility lies with parents to stretch all of their cognitive and intuitive faculties in order to really understand the underlying causes of their children's actions.

Mindful parenting is a form of mindfulness training and is defined  defined by Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction founder Jon Kabat-Zinn as: "paying attention to your child and your parenting in a particular way: intentionally, here and now, and non-judgmentally" [amazon.com: Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting, by Myla Kabat-zinn and Jon Kabat-Zinn, 1997].

Mindful Parenting

In Mindful Parenting, parents learn to pay attention to their children non-judgmentally, increase awareness of the present moment with their child, and reduce automatic (negative) reactions to the child (Lehtonen and Bögels, submitted) [Source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov: The Effectiveness of Mindfulness Training for Children with ADHD and Mindful Parenting for their Parents].

This training will help parents bring in more patience and understanding into the relationship with their children, creating a more peaceful and stable home environment.

Meanwhile, through specialized mindfulness training, children will be learning to focus and self-regulate. There is no doubt, that the benefits increase tremendously when parents and children practice mindfulness together.

Multidisciplinary Program for Children and Families

The Art of Life Community Health Centre is pioneering a multidisciplinary ADD/ADHD diagnostics and management program for children and their parents, based exclusively on natural remedies and methods involving:
  • Detailed computer diagnostic of the microelements, neuromediators and vitamins deficiencies in the body;
  • Homeopathic treatment program;

  • Mindfulness Based Behavioural Therapy for children;
  • Mindful Parenting program for their parents.
