HERBAL TREATMENT FOR POOR CIRCULATION, HAEMORRHAGE AND BLEEDING

Poor Circulation,
Poor circulation is a general term which includes conditions such as insufficient peripheral circulation (cold hands and feet) and саpillary fragility (a tendency to bruise easily). Treatment for the condition utilizes herbs which stimulate circulation and provide tone to the peripheral blood vessels and fine surface capillaries.
