Circulation of the Blood

In order to have good health, we must have good blood. There really is power in the blood, and it is the current of life. It repairs waste and nourishes the body. When supplied with the proper food elements and when cleansed and vitalized by contact with pure air, it carries life and vigor to every part of the system. The more perfect the circulation, the better this work will be accomplished.

With every beat of the heart the blood should make its way quickly and easily to all parts of the body. We should be cautious not to wear too tight clothing or bands, or to dress insufficiently, leaving the extremities not warm enough. Anything that hinders the circulation forces the blood back to the vital organs, producing congestion. Headache, cough, palpitation of the heart, or indigestion is often the result.
