Raynaud’s Awareness Month February 1 – February 28
Raynaud’s awareness occurs every year in February with the aim to increase diagnosis at an early stage and not leave it undiagnosed or people to just deal with it. https://www.sruk.co.uk/get-involved/awareness-events/knowraynauds/
It is a common condition thought to affect up to 10 million people in the UK.
Raynaud’s phenomena results in spasms to the arteries of the fingers and toes. It is usually caused by cold and symptoms alleviated by heat. Numbness and the burning of fingers usually occurs with severe pain however, in between attacks fingers can appear normal. During an attack the skin usually turns white and then often blue. There aren’t any underlining causes till date and generally the condition affects more women than men between the ages of 15 & 30. To prevent this from happening, it is important to ensure you’re well wrapped as cold air can trigger an attack.

Homeopathy can offer a solution with remedies such Agaricus Muscarius as an important remedy for frostbite and a sensation of piercing with ice.
Carbo veg is used where there is a marbling of the skin with a blue tinge. Another popular remedy is Secale where fingers and toes suffer from a tingling sensation and a feeling of numbness.
Various supplements such as fish oils, evening primrose oil, magnesium and ginkgo can help reduce the number of attacks. Acupuncture, managing stress, getting more exercise, stopping smoking and reducing stimulants such as coffee can contribute to successfully treating the condition also.
