If the circulation weakens, the weather or everyday stress can bring you to your knees. In severe cases it can lead to a circulatory collapse and fainting. Which homeopathic medicines help with circulatory problems.
Almost everyone knows the situation: the blood pressure drops, you feel weak and dizzy. The result is dizziness, cold hands and feet, nausea and tremors, tachycardia, weakness and sweating. Homeopathy can help with circulatory problems to stabilize the circulatory system.
What are circulatory problems?
Blood pressure is regulated by interlocking mechanisms such as constriction of arterial blood vessels, increase in heart rate and water excretion through the kidneys. Circulatory problems occur when the brain is not sufficiently supplied with oxygen-rich blood.
The brain is particularly sensitive to when blood pressure drops too low. One speaks of low blood pressure when it falls below a value of 110/70 mmHg in men and 100/60 mmHg in women.
If the blood pressure falls only briefly, the following occurs:
- eye flicker
- Ice cold hands and feet
- racing heart
- Brief fainting
- Going black before the eyes
If the blood pressure is permanently too low, the following symptoms can occur:
- difficulty concentrating
- quick fatigue
- increased need for sleep
- loss of appetite
- lack of drive
- depressed mood
When do you have to go to the doctor for circulatory problems?
Poor circulation can be caused by a serious medical condition that requires immediate medical attention. A doctor should always be called if the circulatory weakness occurs in full health without a plausible reason being apparent. Even if chronic diseases such as cardiovascular or lung diseases, high blood pressure, a tumor or diabetes mellitus are known, a doctor must be consulted in the event of circulatory problems.
Treating circulatory problems homeopathically
Whenever low blood pressure is the reason for the circulatory problems, you can try to stimulate the circulatory system with homeopathy. In mild cases, homeopathy can quickly eliminate acute circulatory problems and get those affected back on their feet quickly. In addition, measures such as lying down, elevating your legs, drinking fluids and, in an emergency, positioning in a stable side position should be carried out.
The right time to take a homeopathic medicine for circulatory problems, for example globules for dizziness, depends on the situation. If the symptoms come slowly, you can already stabilize the circulatory system homeopathically at the first sign.
In the case of recurring circulatory problems and symptoms that come from chronically low blood pressure, therapy by a homeopath makes sense in addition to acute self-treatment.
The homeopathic medicines are available as globules, drops or tablets. In addition to homeopathic individual remedies, there are homeopathic complex remedies that are offered to strengthen the circulatory system. They combine different individual remedies in different potencies. Both homeopathic individual remedies and combination preparations can be used in addition to drug therapy.
Which homeopathic medicine helps with circulatory problems?
The individual remedies are selected on the basis of the prevailing symptoms, so that the same homeopathic medicine does not help every person and in every situation.
Homeopathic medicines can be used in acute cases as soon as the first symptoms of circulatory weakness appear or if a collapse has occurred. Depending on the course, the funds can be taken several times repeatedly. It is best to choose a low potency such as 6X, 12X or 30X.

What else can you do about circulatory problems yourself?
If you feel that your circulation is not up to par, simple things often help. It is important to drink enough to prevent it. The best drinks are mineral water, juice spritzers or tea. If a loss of fluids through heavy sweating, vomiting or diarrhea is the reason for the circulatory problems, the amount of liquid must be increased and a sufficient amount of minerals must be supplied.
Anyone who repeatedly suffers from low blood pressure and circulatory problems can stabilize their circulatory system with endurance sports such as walking, jogging or cycling. Water applications such as alternating showers or treading water have also proven themselves and permanently stimulate the circulation.
