Today we are mature

Today, I have paid my renter’s insurance (before it was cancelled) and researched leg circulation issues.

The first is boring

But here are the things I’ve learned about leg circulation.

  • We have large muscles in our legs
  • They require blood
  • Its hard to pump blood back up your legs to your heart
  • We don’t have little pumps in our feet to pump blood back up
  • We have to tone our blood vessles (jazzercise) 
  • Sitting can kill you

Ways to prevent circulation problems

  • you can wear graduated compression hosiery
  • you can keep moving-don’t be immobile (my but is currently sore from sitting so long)
  • You can exercise 

Causes include

  • Diabetes 
  • fatness
  • poorly planned sluttiness (pregnancy)
  • long periods of sitting and stuff
  • standing or sitting in general

There’s a supplement that can help and I’ve ordered it. I guess I’ll also start moving around more during the day.

This supplement, from Andrew Lessman, has been used in Europe for like 40 years.
