Blood Stagnation, What Is The Meaning, Impact And Treatment?
What is blood stagnation? What are the effects that will be felt? How is the treatment? Is it deadly? Please explain, because there are so few blogs on the internet that discuss the disease.
Hello Myokt, thank you for your question.
First, it must be stressed that blood stagnation is not a diagnosis of disease. Medical science practiced in Indonesia is based on western medicine and is not familiar with the term broadly. Whereas in eastern medicine, the term may be widely used, for example in the practice of acupuncture. As you may already understand that stagnation means something that is experiencing a slowdown or a hindrance. Therefore the possibility that is meant by blood stagnation is a condition in which the flow of blood in the blood vessels experiencing flow disorders. If indeed this is meant by blood stagnation, then as mentioned at the outset, it is not a diagnosis of a disease, but part of a disease course. Therefore you will find a little article about blood stagnation.
Impaired blood flow can occur anywhere in our body, because blood vessels cover the whole body. Symptoms depend on the location of the occurrence and the severity of the flow disturbance. For example: in peripheral arterial disease (PAD), there is narrowing and blockage in the leg veins, so that blood flow to the muscles of the leg area is disturbed which causes symptoms of severe pain, swelling, and tissue death. Then you should specify the location of the disorder in question, other accompanying symptoms, and a chronological history of the disease. The principle of treatment is certainly to eliminate as much as possible things that disrupt the blood flow. For example: blockage of coronary arteries, of course as much as possible cleaning the clogged plaque.
Turning it off or not returning depends on the location and degree of interruption in blood flow. Impaired blood flow affecting the main coronary arteries can certainly cause fatal heart attacks. Impaired cerebral blood flow can cause strokes. The possibilities are very varied. You can find out first about the possibility of the disease you are experiencing, to make it easier and more specific in the description of possible symptoms, treatment, and risks. Thus a brief explanation from us, hopefully it can be useful. Regards.
