Raynaud's Disease Treatment
Arm Movement Exercise: Rapid arm movement exercise can force blood through the tiny capillaries. Stand with arms at your side and swing them strongly like a windmill, forward and up as high as you can and as fast as you can. This often relieves hand symptoms in a minute or two.

Diet: Eat plenty of organic foods high in vitamin E, such as raw seeds and nuts. Hot vegetable soups, vegetable purees, and fresh, organic vegetables are also recommended. Avoid coffee and alcohol, both of which constrict blood vessels.

Herbs: Combine equal parts of the tinctures of ginkgo, prickly ash, and ginger and take 1/2 teaspoon of this mixture three times a day.

Homeopathy: Arsen alb., and Secale are useful homeopathic remedies.

Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.

Juice Therapy: Drink plenty of fresh squeezed, organic fruit and vegetable juices.

Lifestyle: One of the keys to treating and preventing Raynaud's disease is to increase circulation. Breathe deeply throughout the day and keep your hands and feet as warm as possible. Also be sure to get plenty of regular exercise. And, if you smoke, stop.

Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients are advised: vitamin B-complex, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin E, folic acid, magnesium, essential fatty acids (EFAs), evening primrose oil, and digestive enzymes with meals. If you are anemic, also take iron.
