Circulation Celebration: Your 2024 Guide to Supporting Whole Body Health

December 2023

One of my top teachings is: every organ in your body is only as healthy as the blood flow to it.  Every organ in your body thrives on healthy blood flow. Think of your body as a beautiful garden, and your blood vessels as the essential irrigation system. These ten tips are the keys to nurturing healthy blood vessels. 

       1. MOVE MORE, FEEL BETTER Movement isn't just exercise; it enhances your body's immune system, improves blood circulation, and triggers the release of endorphins, serving as your natural mood booster.

       2. LOVE AND CARE FOR YOUR PERSONAL MEDICINE CABINET Inside your blood vessels lies a hidden medicine cabinet that dispenses custom-made remedies to:

    • Lower the undesirable "highs" (blood pressure, blood sugar, blood cholesterol).
    • Raise the "lows" (mood enhancers).
    • Heal your aches (anti-inflammatories).
    • Maintain blood viscosity (anti-coagulants). 

Collectively, these tips help ensure that your personal medicine cabinet remains fully stocked and operational. Synergistically, these tips help keep your personal pharmacy open.

       3. EAT SMART FOODS Smart foods deliver 1) antioxidants that keep your blood vessels smooth and tissues healthy. 2) Smart fats to nourish your brain.

       4. FEED YOUR "FATHEAD" Your brain, comprised of 60% fat, demands care and uses 20-25 percent of all the blood your heart pumps. A metabolic byproduct of your brain’s hyper metabolism is it creates a lot of “exhaust,” called oxidants.  Imagine your brain prompting you: “Don’t exhaust me!”

Take-home tip:

  • Eat smart fats (my favorites: wild salmon, eggs, avocado, olive oil and nuts)
  • Eat awesome antioxidants: Antioxidants are what give foods their rich color, such as blueberries (known as “the brain berry”), greens (such as spirulina), red peppers and more.
  • Embrace the "Awesome Antioxidant 5-S Daily Diet."


  • Start your day with a brainy breakfast.  Blend together many dark-colored fruits and berries.  (See recipes; Matt add link.)
  • Seafood: mainly reddish-pink wild salmon
  • Salads: organic greens and reds
  • Spices: turmeric with black pepper, garlic, and more.
  • Supplements supported by science

Take-home tip:

  • The older you get tant the more active you are, the more antioxidants you need. 

That makes sense: Aging is “rusting;” antioxidants are like anti-rust nutrients.  Exercise generates oxidants and wear-and-tear on the tissues.  Antioxidants are anti-wear-and-tear nutrients.

I recommend Hawaiian Astaxanthin and Hawaiian Spirulina because they both fit into my mantra for smartly selecting a supplement: 

  • Grown in Nature.
  • Supported by Science. 

       6. GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY! Mom was right! Here’s the summary of what neuroscientists say about the benefits of movement in nature:

  • Makes more “happy hormones.” 
  • Mellows your moods.
  • Helps normalize your blood pressure.
  • Helps you think wiser.

       7. GROW A SMARTER ISA (IMMUNE SYSTEM ARMY) Mobilize your immune system army by understanding that much of it resides in the lining of your blood vessels. Nourishment and movement fortify and mobilize your ISA and enhances its effectiveness. 

I use the term “preload” frequently in medical teachings as one word to help you remember at all ages that the more, and the earlier, you use these tools in your family to preload your immune system the more likely you are to live a longer, happier and healthier life.  

       8. STAY LEAN Embrace and love your body type. "Lean" means achieving the right body composition for your individual body type. These ten tips are your allies in staying lean for longevity and overall well-being. 

When you maintain a healthy body composition and weight, you reduce the risk of poor cardiovascular health, which can negatively impact blood flow and circulation. Therefore, by staying lean and maintaining a healthy body composition, you are supporting your overall cardiovascular health, which, in turn, contributes to better blood flow and circulation throughout your body.

       9. GRAZE MORE, GORGE LESS One of my favorite time-tested “waist-management” tips for staying lean is my rule of two’s:

  • Eat twice as often.
  • Eat half as much.
  • Chew twice as long.
  • Take twice the time to dine.

       10. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is essential for maintaining adequate blood volume, which helps in blood circulation. 

These tips work in harmony as a comprehensive wellness strategy, guiding you on the path to a healthier, happier life. 🌱💪 #Wellness #HealthyLiving #LifelongWellness

Enjoy my favorite holiday treat: Dr. Bill’s Homemade Frozen Dessert

After making your morning smoothie, leave about a half-inch of the leftovers in the bottom of your blender and add:

·         A handful of frozen, sliced banana “wheels” (around a ¼-inch thick)

·         1-2 tablespoons of almond butter or peanut butter

·         1 tablespoon of honey

·         2  tablespoons of frozen blueberries

Using the “frozen dessert” setting on your blender, blend for 20-30 seconds or until soft but still frozen.  Yum!
