Circulatory disorders is almost endless that includes heart disease, strokes,hypertension,arterosclerosis, to name a few. Many of the circulatory conditions are the number one cause of death in America, killing nearly one million Americans every year. When we age our body’s ability to keep a proper equilibrium between blood clotting and blood liquefaction begins to go awry. Our blood must clot if we are to keep from bleeding to death, still on the other hand, it must be free flowing and liquid in order for it to travel easily through the body’s blood vessels. Thus the older we become the stickier our blood gets, and ability to flow diminishes. When this occurs the stage is set for blood clots, clogged arteries, strokes, and heart attacks.
Circulatory Tea may be helpful as you age, this was my Uncle’s recipe, as he was a Native American.
1 tsp. burdock root

Combine all the herbs together in a nonmetallic container, than pour the boiling water over them. Soak for 30 minutes, cool and strain. Take up to 2 or 3 Tbs. at a time up to 6 times a day. Always remember to ask your doctor on advice as herbs are medicine.
