Antispasmodics – contribute to the relaxation of smooth muscles in the vascular wall, thereby increasing the diameter of the lumen. However, it should be borne in mind that the process occurs not only inside the skull, but also throughout the body. They are usually prescribed in a short course. Popular remedies – Drotaverin, No-spa.
Calcium channel blockers – dilate the head vascular structures without compromising peripheral circulation, but can lower blood pressure. People prone to hypotension – with low numbers of pressure, they are contraindicated. In the arsenal of doctors, drugs are presented: Norvask, Kordafen, Amodipin, Nimotop, Verapamil, Cardipin, Normodipin, Sakur.
Nootropics are widely prescribed drugs, because they not only correct the head blood supply, but also improve the tone of the veins: Nootropil, Piracetam, Cerebrolysin, Lutsetam.
Doses and duration of the course of taking medications are determined by the doctor, taking into account the severity of negative symptoms and the state of blood circulation inside the skull as a whole.
In order to restore blood circulation, medications of the following groups are prescribed:
antiplatelet agents and anticoagulants (Curantil, Aspirin, Fraxiparin, Cavinton) reduce the risk of blood clots (blood clots) and vasoconstriction, improve microcirculation, and reduce the risk of brain acc >
The appointment of pharmacological preparations should be carried out only by a doctor. Each of the listed classifications of drugs has contraindications and side effects.
Improving the blood circulation of the brain and eyes will be more effective if drugs in the form of injections are used, or if droppers are placed. With such an introduction, the therapeutic effect occurs faster.
Diet therapy for circulatory disorders
Modern medicine has many effective tools that can improve cerebral blood flow – from medicinal tablets and injectable drugs to physiotherapeutic procedures and sets of exercises.
So, at the initial stage of the course of a pathological disorder, it is quite possible to do without drugs. Treatment tactics will consist of diet correction, increased physical activity, and specific exercises to help improve blood flow inside the skull.
Whereas with a significant deterioration in the blood circulation of the brain, specialists adhere to the following principles of therapy:
- Course administration of drugs that can improve the delivery of nutrients to the brain: venotonics, antiplatelet agents, statins, flavonoids, combined medications.
- Diet therapy.
- Lifestyle correction.
- Performing special exercises.
- Spa treatment.
The key to success in the fight against headaches is the timeliness of seeking medical help and the complexity of the measures taken.
The proverb that we are what we eat, as never before, is relevant for circulatory disorders in the brain. The effect of a balanced and proper nutrition at the initial stages of brain pathologies is no less pronounced than from taking medications. However, it becomes noticeable a little later.
Before deciding on a diet, experts recommend performing several diagnostic procedures:
- monitor blood pressure – measure numbers in the morning and evening for several days;
- take a biochemical blood test – the parameters of glucose, cholesterol, bilirubin;
- coagulogram analysis – density and fluidity.
Based on the results, the doctor will adjust the diet to improve cerebral circulation. With a tendency to hypertension, it is worth abandoning table salt, and to improve the taste of dishes, use herbs. Minimize smoked meats, preservatives, greasy and heavy meals.
With hyperglycemia, high numbers of glucose in the bloodstream, you will have to abandon digestible carbohydrates. These include all types of preserves, honey, pastries and pastries, chocolate and sweets. It is better to give preference to cereals and pasta from the highest grades of flour.
Amino acids of plant and animal origin — low-fat fish and meat, seafood — various mussels, shrimp, and vegetables and fruits with a high content of B vitamins should predominate in the diet of a person who seeks to improve blood circulation in the brain.
Supplements and vitamins
Despite the fact that dietary supplements and synthetic vitamins do not apply to medicines that are prescribed on a prescription form, they are indicated for use in complex treatment. Below is a list of the most popular ones.
L – carnitine is a biologically active substance, it is present in various environments of the body. It is prescribed as a food supplement in combination with other drugs, with vascular encephalopathy of various etiologies. The effect is manifested with prolonged use of up to 1 month.
Aescusan is one of the dietary supplements used to prevent venous stagnation in the brain. It tones the veins, which encourages the pumping of blood from some parts of the brain to others. Venous and arterial blood stasis contributes to the development of hypoxia and ischemia.
Supplements Ginkoum, Bilobil – contain extracts from medicinal plants. With their help, vascular tone improves, the permeability of the walls of blood vessels decreases. Drugs are prescribed to improve brain activity, memory. They also contribute to the restoration of adaptive mechanisms by acting on certain receptors.
Good blood supply to brain cells is important not only for adults. Every day, children learn something new, discover the world around them. This requires a large expenditure of energy, concentration of attention and memory.
For children and adolescents, to increase the blood circulation of the brain, PP vitamins are prescribed. Nicotinic acid (vitamin PP) has a pronounced vasodilating effect. Thanks to its effect, the elasticity of the vascular wall is preserved, small vessels expand, but it does not affect the lumen of large ones. The effect of the vitamin is enhanced if it is part of a dietary supplement along with silicon and selenium. A similar composition contains Enduracin, Nikoshpan.
Despite the seeming harmlessness, these drugs should be used with caution, since an overdose is fraught with the manifestation of adverse reactions.
Massage for cervical osteochondrosis
Often, the cause of a disturbance in the blood supply to the brain, according to doctors, is cervical osteochondrosis. Arteries running along the spine are compressed by pathologically altered intervertebral discs and spasmodic muscles.
Patients experience dizziness, memory impairment. Acupuncture massage of the head, back and collar zone will help to change the situation and straighten the spine. A masseur acts on biologically active points of the body, relaxes muscles, eliminating their spasm.
If you do not have the opportunity to use the services of a massage therapist, then using this scheme you can do yourself a simple self-massage of the neck and head. Blood circulation can be enhanced by rubbing the earlobes, dimples above the upper lip and temples. An important condition for the therapeutic effect is the implementation of massage approaches at least 8-10 times.
Combing hair with aromatic oils will also help regulate the functioning of blood vessels and improve cerebral circulation. It will calm the nerves and provide a good quality sleep.
Babies with circulatory problems are also shown massage. It has a comprehensive effect on the body of the child. Under the influence of massage in infants, blood flow and lymphatic drainage of the body are accelerated, metabolic processes improve, the excretion of metabolic products is accelerated.
A set of exercises to improve central circulation
Despite the high efficiency of the main subgroups of drugs listed above, other drugs also help to improve blood circulation in the brain.
Disaggregants – prevent excessive adhesion of platelets, thereby preventing the formation of blood clots, due to which the blood flow can be significantly improved: Curantil, Pentoxifylline, Vasonite, Trental.
Flavonoids – improve vascular tone and strengthen the walls of veins, they correct the processes of memory and the work of brain structures: Bilobil, Tanakan, Ginkoum, Memoplant.
Corrector microcirculation – increase blood flow in the capillaries, which increases the flow of nutrients to brain cells: Betagestin, Vestibo, Tagista.
Polypeptides – improve the conductivity of impulses along the fibers of nerve endings in the structures of the brain, which positively affects blood circulation. The main and popular medicine is Cortexin.
Not only the quality of veins and arteries, but also the condition of the vertebrae in the cervical spine affects cerebral circulation. With degenerative processes in them (osteochondrosis), blood flow will be significantly worse, which will also negatively affect the well-being of a person.
To improve blood circulation in the skull, specialists developed a special set of exercises:
- From a standing position, with the most straight back, look straight ahead, then turn your head slowly to the left, and then to the right. Repeat at least 10-15 times.
- Sitting on a chair with a straight back, perform rotational movements so that the chin touches the chest, each shoulder, after which the back of the head slightly tilts towards the back. Perform 10 times in each direction.
- Tilts to the side – so that the auricle touches the shoulder. Repeat 15–20 times on each side.
A set of exercises is recommended to be performed daily, preferably in the morning – this will help improve blood circulation, eliminate venous congestion inside the skull.
The main goal of gymnastics for the neck is to relax tense muscles and eliminate spasm in the vascular bed. This will improve blood flow to the brain. If you are not lazy, you will be able to restore blood circulation.
Most often, blood circulation problems are solved medically. Drugs designed to dilate blood vessels and dilute blood are quite effective, but they have a number of serious side effects and contraindications. Exercises to normalize blood flow are completely safe. They can be performed at any age, and it turns out not only a preventive, but also a therapeutic effect:
- disturbances in memory and other cognitive functions of the brain are prevented and treated;
- coordination of movements improves;
- the risk of developing various vascular pathologies, such as strokes and thrombosis, is reduced;
- vision is restored;
- the pain syndrome with osteochondrosis is removed, the mobility of the spinal column increases.
Against the background of regular classes, the effectiveness of the medications prescribed by the doctor also increases.
It is possible to influence the circulation of blood in the head only in a complex way. That is why the list of useful movements includes not only tilts and turns of the head, but also lunges and squats. To activate blood flow and increase vascular lumen, it is necessary to make the heart work faster.
As for the technical side of the issue, all movements must be performed smoothly and carefully, without making sudden movements and jerks. Each exercise should be repeated at least ten times. You need to breathe deeply and evenly during the training. This will ensure the flow of oxygen and maintaining the rhythm: the movement is performed on the exhale, and the return to its original position – on the inhale.
As the muscles strengthen, the load must be increased. This is done both due to the greater number of repetitions and the number of approaches. Beginners are advised to complete no more than one set for each exercise.
Exercise and Yoga
Improving memory in people with impaired peripheral and central blood circulation can occur from physical therapy (kinesitherapy), exercises can be performed at home.
The effect of gymnastics resembles massage, only the muscles are not kneaded by the masseur, but the patient himself in the process of doing the exercises.
There is another elementary exercise for the cervical spine, which can be performed independently both at home and at work – turning the head clockwise and counterclockwise several times. With its help, it is possible to maintain muscle tone, relieve tension, eliminate spasm, activate and establish blood circulation in the brain.
There are various forms of active physical effects on the cervical spine. Recently, yoga has been popular. Asanas are accompanied by breathing exercises.
Improper breathing contributes to cerebrovascular accident. There are various systems (Strelnikova, Buteyko, qigong) that can be used to get rid of this problem. This gymnastics is well suited for those who suffer from vegetovascular dystonia (VVD), because meditation will help not only to stretch, but also to relieve tension, give rest to the muscles, eyes and central nervous system.
Here is an example of a couple of simple but effective exercises:
- sit down, relax, take a slow, deep breath through your nose. Hold your breath for a few seconds and exhale through your mouth, while the lip should be pulled into a narrow gap. After this, do not immediately inhale. Breath should be held for 1-3 seconds. A similar exercise must be repeated up to 10 times;
- take a standing position, legs together. Rising on the socks, you should take a slow, deep breath. It is better to exhale again through the mouth, while lowering to the feet, and spread your arms to the sides. After a few seconds, take your previous position. Perform up to 5 times;
- no less useful will be breathing through the left nostril. An inhalation is made through it, then breathing is delayed, and exhalation should be done through the right nostril. Perform up to 10 times.
Such gymnastics activate blood circulation, preventing sclerotic changes.
The most common cause of deterioration in cerebral circulation is a blockage of the vascular lumen by a thrombus. Its formation is promoted by increased blood viscosity.
The correct drinking regimen helps to avoid such a complication and restore full blood flow in the head veins. So, the best option is to consume at least 1.5–2.5 liters of purified water, without gas. Despite the seemingly huge indicated volumes of liquid, it can easily be drunk:
- 250 ml in the morning on an empty stomach;
- a glass of juice for breakfast;
- 0.5 liter water bottle at work during breaks;
- a cup of green tea for lunch – about 300 ml;
- for afternoon tea – juice or mineral water without gas, another 250-300 ml;
- before dinner – another bottle of water 0.5 l;
- mug of green tea for dinner.
And now the required 2–2.5 l of fluid is needed, which is necessary for the brain to fully function and prevent increased thrombosis. In addition, water is necessarily present in soups, cereals, salads, main dishes, just in smaller volumes.
It is water that helps to eliminate various toxins and toxins from the brain structures. In addition, it dilutes the blood in the head vascular plexuses, which facilitates the functioning of cells, improves the delivery of nutrients.
Separate herbs and herbal preparations can be drunk on the recommendation of a specialist as an adjunct treatment to eliminate the slowdown of blood flow.
The list of medicinal plants that will help to cope with this pathology:
- Hawthorn flowers with the addition of periwinkle leaves. The recipe for the finished mixture is as follows: the leaves must be finely chopped and taken in an amount of 5 g. Add to them half a liter of boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. After a few hours, the broth is ready for use. Take a drink should be 50 ml on an empty stomach. Duration of administration is 2-4 weeks. The tool regulates the hemodynamics of the brain.
- Celandine can be taken not only as a treatment for diseases of the skin and mucous membranes. It is also actively used after an ischemic stroke, that is, when a cerebrovascular accident occurred. To prepare the composition, you need 20 g of dried grass, which must be filled with 200 ml of boiling water. After a quarter of an hour, the solution should be filtered. The recommended course of treatment is three weeks. Take 20 ml (tablespoon) 2-3 times a day. It is important to comply with the dosage.
- The mixture prepared from horseradish, honey and cranberries has special beneficial properties. The components are taken in the following ratio – 150 g, 350 g and 500 g, respectively. Each ingredient is ground (horseradish with a fine grater) and whipped with a blender. After that, the composition is poured into glass containers and stored in a cool place. It should be consumed in a tablespoon with food. Long-term use of this drug has a strengthening effect on the vascular wall, stabilizes blood circulation, and also raises immune resistance.
- Valerian has a mild sedative effect. Reducing the excitability of the nervous system relieves and prevents vascular spasm. Valerian can be taken in the form of infusion or tincture, the last dosage form is sold ready-made in a pharmacy. Infusion can be prepared independently. To do this, 25 mg of dried roots should be poured with boiling water. After 10 hours, the composition is ready. It is recommended to drink it in a tablespoon up to 3 times a day. Alcohol tincture can not only be consumed in the form of a few drops in half a glass of water, but also inhaled before bedtime.
- Pine cones. They should be used when they are still green. For the preparation of tinctures, they will need 10 pieces. First they should be washed, then chopped and filled with an alcohol-containing composition (vodka, alcohol) in a volume of half a liter. Then this mixture should be infused for 2 weeks. The finished product is added one teaspoon to a glass of tea. The therapeutic course lasts 2 weeks. After a break of one month, treatment can be repeated.
In search of ways to help improve and stimulate the head blood supply inside the skull, it is worth recalling traditional medicine. Since ancient times, the forces of nature have come to the aid of people suffering from manifestations of inhibition of blood flow in the central nervous system.
Proven effective recipes for traditional medicine:
- In a clean container, combine 10 g of veronica and lemon balm, 30 g of strawberry leaves, as well as 40 g of flowers and fruits of hawthorn. Pour the finished mixture into 300 ml of boiling water. After filtering, drink instead of tea.
- Healing mixture for every day – combine 500 g of cranberry fruits and 350 g of linden honey, add 150 g of grated horseradish. Consume 1 tbsp. before each meal.
- Grind the leaves of periwinkle and in the amount of 1 tsp. and pour them into 500 ml of boiling water. Strain on moderate heat for 10-15 minutes, and before removing from heat add 1 tsp of hawthorn leaves. Insist 2.5-3 hours and strain. Drink 250 ml regularly before meals.
Traditional medicine recipes are appreciated for their effectiveness and high level of safety for human health. However, before you start using this or that tool, it is recommended to coordinate it with a specialist.
With the violation of cerebral circulation it is necessary and possible to fight, but in close cooperation with doctors. The reward will be clarity of mind, high intelligence until old age and a strong memory.
Healthy foods and diet
One of the reasons for poor blood supply can be organic lesions of the vessels that feed the brain. In the blood, the level of fat-like substances – cholesterol – increases, which accumulate on the walls of blood vessels, forming lipid spots. This leads to cramping, blood clots and atherosclerosis.
Proper nutrition is of great importance in the fight against cholesterol and the prevention of cerebrovascular disease. With its help, it is possible to normalize the biochemical composition of blood (sugar, cholesterol), which affects the health of the vascular walls. The composition of some products includes a whole range of useful components for improving the condition of blood vessels.
Under their influence, blood flow increases, rheological properties of blood change, blood vessels are cleaned:
- Seafood must be included in the menu of a person who wants to have healthy vessels and heart. In its composition, marine fish contains easily digestible proteins, iodine and Omega 3 acid. The last component is useful for the cell membrane. Antioxidants prolong the youth of the brain, prevent the destruction of its cells. Once a week, on one of the days, you can arrange a “fish” day. This is enough to replenish the body with the necessary components.
- Oatmeal is the queen of all cereals. It is included in the menu where compliance with the gentle regime for the digestive tract is required. In addition, oatmeal is good for blood vessels, and all thanks to the composition. It contains: proteins of plant origin, vitamins, minerals. Regular consumption of oatmeal porridge will prevent various vascular pathologies.
- Tomatoes, in addition to containing a set of useful substances in the form of minerals and vitamins, include a component that is of particular value – this is lycopene. Under its influence, free radicals are destroyed, the level of “bad” cholesterol in the blood is markedly reduced, the risk of blood clots is reduced, the walls of blood vessels become stronger, more elastic. A nice bonus from eating tomatoes is to reduce the risk of cancer. Tomato can replace only freshly made juice from it. Lycopene does not change its properties during the heat treatment of tomatoes, so they remain useful after canning.
- Garlic contains many beneficial substances. Of particular note are selenium, as well as allicin. These components improve the rheological properties of the blood and its composition, dissolve minor cholesterol layers and prevent their further formation. Daily use of a clove of garlic per day helps restore normal blood circulation.
- Cabbage of all varieties contains polyphenols in different ratios, which “clean” the blood vessels, stimulate blood flow, and improve blood flow, due to which the heart rhythm normalizes.
- Salad and greens contain enough vitamin C, which is an antioxidant. Blood circulation in vessels of various diameters and in the frontal cortex is also stimulated by the use of essential oils and calcium. It is desirable that greens (including lettuce) are present in the diet daily.
- Unrefined natural vegetable oil (one with a smell) is one of the necessary products to maintain the health of the vessels of the brain. It contains fatty acids that affect cholesterol metabolism. The risk of vascular plaque formation is reduced, vascular patency and blood composition are improved. Cold pressed oil is especially useful. It remains unharmed substances useful for the cell membranes of the vessels of the brain.
- Nuts contain essential fatty acids, as well as Omega – 3 and Omega – 6. Adds value to the product and vegetable protein. Regular consumption of several kernels of any nuts will help normalize cholesterol metabolism, improve blood rheology, increase the tone of brain cells, as well as its activity. It is useful to eat nuts with honey, if there are no contraindications.
Persons predisposed to hypercholesterolemia should live by strict rules: adhere to a diet with a low content of animal fat, constantly monitor blood pressure. Quitting alcohol and smoking reduces the risk of stroke by 2 times, so bad habits should be completely eliminated from your life.
Undoubtedly, the elements of healthy lifestyle, medicines and diet food will positively affect the blood vessels of the brain. Subject to all the described rules and advice, the patient will be able to completely cure the disease and live for many years.
Remember that before embarking on recreational activities, you need to consult a doctor.
For good blood circulation to the brain, the lifestyle that a person leads is extremely important. A full flow of blood through the vascular plexuses is the result of a lot of work on oneself.
A healthy lifestyle to stimulate cerebral circulation inside the skull involves:
- abandonment of negative habits – medical studies convincingly prove that the use of both tobacco and alcohol products contributes to the narrowing of veins in the brain structures, therefore, nutrients enter the brain less, there is focal, and then widespread ischemia;
- high physical activity, but not overwork – it is recommended to avoid physical inactivity, enroll in the pool, gym, walk more, breathe fresh air, travel out of town;
- timely treat acute as well as chronic diseases so that they do not affect the functioning of nerve cells – for example, influenza, diabetes, pyelonephritis, atherosclerosis, osteochondrosis.
In addition to all of the above, a good night’s rest, correction of the work regime – not to get tired at the workplace, communicate with friends and relatives, attend yoga and aromatherapy courses, will affect the blood supply to the brain tissue.
Detonic – a unique medicine that helps fight hypertension at all stages of its development.
The complex effect of plant components of the drug Detonic on the walls of blood vessels and the autonomic nervous system contribute to a rapid decrease in blood pressure. In addition, this drug prevents the development of atherosclerosis, thanks to the unique components that are involved in the synthesis of lecithin, an amino acid that regulates cholesterol metabolism and prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.
Detonic not addictive and withdrawal syndrome, since all components of the product are natural.
