Circulation problems

Good day!

My dad has Type 2 diabetes with High BP, also has dropped metatarsal bones (not sure if these are related). He has really bad circulation in his feet the front area from toes till the arch is normally ash white, cold and numb. Is there are treatment (medical or wholistic) that would help increase circulation and take away the numbness?

Dear Puppy,
Your dad needs to see a vascular surgeon before he gets gangrene in his feet. Sometimes they can operate to open up the bloodflow to the feet. He can also take Vit B6 100 mg per day but it may give him "hot flushes". Tavan SP may help to keep the blood thinner in the legs.
