Raynaud's syndrome is a condition involving decreased circulation to the hands and sometimes the feet as well. If you suffer from this condition, you are already aware that it can cause fingers to become white or discolored, resulting from impaired blood flow. The condition often seems to be related to the body's over-reactivity to stress or cold temperature. Seventy-five percent of Raynaud's cases occur in women between the ages of fifteen and forty.

Raynaud's can occur in the absence of other conditions or it can occur as a result of another condition. Raynaud's symptoms have been associated with migraine medications, smoking, chemotherapy, carpal tunnel syndrome, arterial disease, chemical exposure (especially vinyl chloride), and the use of certain hand tools in the workplace.

Simple solutions to try include wearing extra gloves in cool or cold weather, avoiding smoking, reducing the use of air conditioning, and using gloves to handle frozen food. Medications such as calcium channel blockers and alpha blockers can be used to relax blood vessels and promote normal circulation.

In addition to these strategies, several herbal and mineral options for treatment are available. We recommend that herbs and supplements be used in the context of an overall treatment plan designed and monitored by a knowledgeable licensed healthcare provider. This is important in the treatment of Raynaud's syndrome because certain supplements can act as blood thinners or may interact with medications you may be taking.

Acupuncture has also helped some of our patients with Raynaud's syndrome to find relief. If you are interested in exploring these options, we invite you to call today.
