Does Cranial Sacral Theraphy Help Blood Flow To Scalp

Reason?: No known way to selectively increase blood flow to the scalp in a person with dysautonomia or any other part of the body for that matter by way of medication or surgical method.

Elbow Support brace like BandIt for the forearm to cure Ulnar claw? More blood flow? When should it be used? What about hot/cold therapy sleeves?
Can't hurt to try: BandIt MAY help by taking some pressure off the ulnar nerve, and you can wear it as much as you want if it helps. It's not guaranteed to cure though. You're young, and research suggest surgery may be better for younger patients with moderate to severe symptoms if conservative measures like BandIt and avoiding certain positions don't work within 6 months, surgery may be best. You can try heat and ice ...Read more

Are yoga postures like sirasana any good for hair regrowth in head. Does constant flow of blood to your scalp for a limited time have any benefits?
The answer is no... it does not help...

Inner lining: The inner lining is what is shed during the menstrual period - henc the clots that can sometimes be observed. Once the lining is shed there is no need for any further bleeding.

Black = old blood: The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful or relevant. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina.

If your cycles are heavy consider birth control for regulation. ...Read more

Alcohol and Blood:
This is an excellent question.
There are two answers that may sound like they contradict each other.
Alcohol thins the blood. This means that it does not clot so easily and too much alcohol, affecting the liver, can lead to easily bruising and such.
But, drinking alcohol is also dehydrating. You pee off more fluid than you consume...Which can make the blood thicker and thus lead to slowing.. ...Read more

Certain rhythms (like atrial fibrillation) are associated with less efficient pumping. An echo would be a better test to examine flow / stroke volume / etc. ...Read more
