Do your feet and fingers feel cold even during warm days? Do you feel chilled easily even when others around you are feeling just comfortable? These could be signs of poor blood circulation. Bad circulation can affect various parts of the body and cause your extremities to feel cold.
Most of the time, poor blood circulation is due to an overacidity in the body from poor diet choices, or from accumulation of toxins that are not being eliminated properly, again due to poor food choices and environmental pollution. Poor circulation along the legs and feet are most common. Some other causes of this poor circulation include:
- Blood clots
- Varicose veins
- Candida infections
- Heavy metal poisoning
Blood circulation is an important part of your health. Blood is responsible for transporting essential nutrients and oxygen through your entire body. By keeping your heart healthy, you could begin improving circulation problems.
Here are 5 alkalizing juices to help boost circulation. They are also “body-warming” foods that are suitable for drinking during the cold weather.
1. Beet The Cold
This drink has the combination of all the right ingredients that help dilate the blood vessels for better blood flow and circulation. The three main ingredients are roots or ground vegetable that make them “warming food”. Simply put all these ingredients through your juicer:
- 2 beetroots
- 4 carrots
- 1 bulb of fennel
- 1-inch of fresh ginger root (up to 2-inch if you dare!)
- 1 lemon
2. Spicy Hot Booster
This juice recipe boosts your immunity, is “body-warming” and boosts blood circulation. Drink this juice alternately with the other juices recommended here.
- 4 carrots
- 2 red or yellow bell peppers
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 green apple
- ½ lemon
- 1-inch of fresh ginger root
3. Lemongrass-Ginger Tea
This Lemongrass-Ginger Tea is not a juice recipe but it’s one of my favorite drinks for a cold day. just to warm up the body. One of the reasons for feeling cold could also be due to Candida infections. If this is your condition, then this drink not only helps to gradually kill the Candida but also helps warm you up.
If you have Candida, make a pot of this drink (about 1 liter/quart) and drink daily for 2 weeks, or more days if necessary. But be sure to omit the raw honey and drink it warm.
If you tend to feel cold all of the time or notice any other signs of poor circulation, such as numbness or a tingling sensation, then try drinking these juice recipes. They include a variety of ingredients that are known to promote heart health and improve blood circulation.
Besides drinking these recipes, you may like to consider what you’re eating. What you’re NOT eating also plays an important role in your overall health.
