Raynaud’s disease is caused by a lack of blood to the fingers and toes causing numbness and coldness. It is triggered with stress or with exposure to cold temperatures. The fingers and toes not only go cold and numb, they also go pale white and then blue and then when the attack is over, they go red, hot and throb or tingle.
Raynaud's Disease is classified as primary (no underlying condition causes the vasospasm), or secondary (there is an underlying medical condition causing the vasospasm). Secondary Raynaud's can be caused by connective tissue disorders, scleroderma, lupus, frostbite, injuries, and smoking among others, and is more serious that primary Raynaud's.
Although it primarily affects the fingers and toes, Raynaud's can also affect the ears, nose and lips. Some complications of Raynaud's Disease can be gangrene and skin ulcers.
Three of the most common remedies used in Raynaud's with great success are Aragicus, Carbo Veg and Scale Cor..
Always remember that you should seek the advice of a licensed Homeopath with choosing the right remedy, potency and frequency of dosage.
