new phenomenon. The effects have existed for centuries. Today it is far more
prevalent than ever, largely because of our modern circumstances.

Disorders can be compared
to gout or arthritis only less intense, occurring within the vessels instead of
in joints. Also, the "irritating substance" is not so concentrated as to
provoke an actual inflammation in one local area but because of its dilution
within the fluids of the vessels is being more diffused over a larger area
usually producing an irritation rather than actual pain. This is similar to how
a wooden sliver will irritate or how an irritating substance on our skin will
cause irritation only within the vessels the substance is already much finer and on the inside vessel
walls. If there are too many irritating substances being carried in the blood
they can also alter its chemistry.
Important concept: The term "life force" is a very abstract term to most people. The blood
carries this life force taken from the air we breathe and the food we eat to all
parts of the body. In the Orient it is called "chi."
This very fine life energy for various reasons stops
flowing freely due to its insufficiency producing a stagnation. With it the
movement of the blood in general along with the substances being carried in the
blood also become inhibited. This is not a stoppage, but a stagnation. In this
stagnation various substances accumulate and begin to ferment releasing
their heat and rarified toxins producing local irritation. This can range from a
mild itching to pain.
This life force is to our blood what octane is to the fuel we put into our
cars. The more octane the more power. The more life force the more
capacity/energy to move that which could become stagnant. With
age there is even less life force available, this deficit in life force leaves
the blood less vital. (This circulating "power," although vital, is not
mechanically quantifiable.) And, as most of the blood is in the legs a greater
possibility of irritation in the legs exists in older people.
