Raynaud’s Awareness Month

February is Raynaud’s awareness month, right bang in the middle of the winter, when symptoms of this syndrome are at their worst.🧊


Pain occurs with Raynaud’s when there is reduced blood flow to the extremities, often the fingers, bringing a change of colour, from pink to white and blue and onto red, with the painful return of blood flow.


As well as the cold, other key drivers that can trigger an episode include stress, caffeine and alcohol.


Fortunately, there are some key foods you can eat more of to bring about relief, the top three being:


⭐️Oily fish for omega 3 fatty acids

⭐️Ginger as a warming food

⭐️Berries for vitamin C and antioxidants


Helpful supplements include :

⭐️Co Q 19

⭐️Ginkgo Biloba

⭐️Omega 3


It’s also good to know that stress management can be game changer as well.


✋ Because Raynauds is sometimes a secondary condition of an autoimmune disease e.g., Scleroderma or Hashimotos, addressing the primary disease through dietary changes and digestive support may provide relief from Raynaud’s symptoms too.


Please note: you should always check for interactions and contraindications with a nutritionist or a medical professional before selecting a supplement.
