The microcirculation of the human bloodstream concerns all transport processes between blood and tissue cells that are realised in the area of blood vessels with diameters smaller than 100 μm. In conventional medicine, the existing medicinal options for treating disturbed microcirculation are currently very limited. Moreover, the available drugs can only act in the area of the large-calibre arterioles (~ 60 μm) - but not in the downstream small-calibre arteriolar branches (~ 25 μm), which are upstream of the capillary networks (~ 7 μm).
In order for organs and tissues to be supplied with sufficient oxygen and nutrients, they must be properly perfused down to the tiniest vessels.
A disturbance of the microcirculation can have far-reaching consequences.
Perhaps one simply feels tired and listless because the cells lack the necessary energy. The body is less able to regenerate, the immune system is weakened
The immune system is weakened, so that the susceptibility to diseases increases and healing processes are slowed down.
