I stumbled on this article searching for information about Raynaud’s. The person shows the typical white fingers. Thought this might be of interest to everyone. I’m going to try to eliminate the major nightshade foods that are high in Solanine to see if this helps me. Some of the common nightshade foods are: white potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant etc http://paleozonenutrition.com/2011/07/20/my-30-day-strict-alcohol-free-auto-immune-paleo-diet/February 21, 2014 at 5:40 pm #4887
I have been considering removing the nightshades from my diet as well, would you mind sharing if/how it has been working for you?
Thanks!April 7, 2014 at 6:16 am #5034
Spuds, tomatoes and peppers – yep – a part of my diet….Have no problem with the chocolate! but without these foodstuffs I’d be hard pressed to find anything to eat as I follow a vegan diet.April 23, 2014 at 1:50 pm #5047
I started to exercise, cut out the nightshades plus I added more magnesium rich foods, oatmeal, bran flakes (fortified with vitamins), started to make green smoothies every day with spinach, half a banana, one inch slice of ginger root (keep in the freezer its easier to peel), I also add in other healthy foods for variety, depending on what I have on hand, frozen carrot slices, broccoli, romaine lettuce, mango, pineapple, blueberries etc.
My fingers don’t turn white anymore, they just get a darker\brighter red and feel tingly. I can withstand colder temps too. So not a cure but a marked improvement!April 24, 2014 at 4:43 am #5048
Interesting combination. I used to rely on a ginger root syrup until I was asked to stop taking it before surgery. Since then it’s not worked.October 7, 2014 at 3:17 pm #5429
Have you been able to keep up with the elimination of nightshades? How has it been working for you? Hope you can provide an update since your last was in April you had positive experiences!October 8, 2014 at 5:05 am #5431
Yes – It would be useful to know, especially as Winter’s round the corner!October 8, 2014 at 2:33 pm #5432
I’m still doing good! This summer I was given two eggplants, right away thought nightshades, but they were free. Sliced and fried, the next day my fingers started to turn white when drinking a cold green smoothie, I tossed the rest of the eggplant.
Once in a while I have tomato sauce, the next morning I wake up feeling achy stiff joints. So I realize there’s some sort of connection between nightshades and my health.
Try cutting out the nightshades for three months to see if it reduces the severity of your Raynaud’s. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/link-between-nightshades-chronic-pain-and-inflammation
