How does flow restore
Just had my 2nd attack in 3 yeras of ischemic colitis.  The first attack was misdiagnosed as bacterial but never cultured anything.  This time they said it's ischemic.  I've not had any tests yet to determine the underlyying cause.

I understand the concept about blood flow restriction but if the cause is a blockage, how does flow get restored?  

About my situation:  age 53, weight 125, height about 5'2", no smoker (never have), good blood pressure, walk/jog 3 x week, sedentary job, 2-3 alcohol drinks a month, no diabetes, high cholesterol but under control with Lovastatin -- averages 182 past 8 years.  I did have hysterectomy in 1986 and was on premarin until 15 years ago and then switched to low dose estradiol patch until about 6 months ago then switched to estrace creme (which I'm now going to stop just in case it's related to this).

Any insight/further information about how blockages may self resolve and/or what can cause vasoconstriction considering my circumstances.

Thanks!
