Raynaud's Phenomenon


About
Raynaud's Phenomenon affects the circulation mainly in the hands and feet. Blood vessels may shrink when hands are exposed to the cold and spasms may occur. At times, fingers and toes may turn white and blue from a lack of oxygen.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Nifedipine is a calcium blocker is used to treat Reynaud's disease.

  • Do not take migraine medicine and birth control pills that will constrict the blood vessels.
