This video defines Raynaud’s and provides some useful information on alternative treatment options for the condition.
There’s no magic mushroom, but basics such as ginger, Cayenne pepper, chili peppers and Niacin (vitamin B3) may help dilate the blood vessels and boost circulation.
Also self-help techniques, such as biofeedback, Thi Chi, yoga and other mind-body techniques can potentially help reduce the frequency and severity of Raynaud’s attacks, particularly those triggered by stress. Keep in mind these activities require commitment and practice to see results, and won’t necessarily work for all sufferers, especially those with secondary Raynaud’s related to more serious autoimmune diseases. But for the majority of sufferers, they may be worth a try.
