I was browsing through your website and saw your article on leg circulation:
I have the exact same ailment which seems to be getting progressively worse. I take 13.5mg of warfarin per day due to multiple blood clots, which has in effect cause much of the problems in my legs. I suppose, my venous issues are compounded with varicose veins which have increasingly developed due to incompetent valves.
If I could get the condition that gentleman's legs healed to it would be heaven!
A few years have passed and I can report that the gentleman who owns the legs in this photo is now well into his 70's and his legs are better than ever. He is a regular walker and in good health.
When he first came to see me, he was in distress and I was shocked at the state his legs were in. My, how things have changed!
Let's be real about this condition: It is indicative of seriously poor circulation to the legs and this may be a precursor to eventual lower leg amputation. To beat it, we can not afford to mess about.
The nutrition interventions I may recommend depend upon each individual's special circumstances and must also be mindful of what medications they may be on. For example: Vitamin E may augment the anti clotting effects of Warfarin, so the obvious action is to reduce the amount of Warfarin if we decide to give you vitamin E (This may need the cooperation of your Dr).
The big breakthrough, of late, is iodine deficiency which we can now test for.
For example: You may be lacking zinc but you may actually have too much; you may need more vitamin C but then again it may be copper you need more of. You may have far too much calcium in your soft tissues and not enough magnesium. Do you need more fat and protein? Who knows? The only way we can know for sure is through the HTMA.
So, the first step you will need about a gram of natural undyed hair that you send to Pacific Health. The process of analysis takes 3-4 weeks from the date you send in the hair sample. Once you have your copy of the report you need to contact me to arrange a time to go through the report together. If you do not live in Wellington, New Zealand, then we can do this either over the phone or with Skype (I prefer Skype).
Oh! - It might be worth taking several photos of your legs so that you have something to refer to in a year or so from now. Improvements can be very subtle and easily missed. Photos do the job well and can be matched with other measures such as distanced walked with comfort.
My grandmother still has trouble with blood circulation, so she tries to put pillows underneath her legs while she sleeps. She says it actually helps.
