Alternative Treatment of Raynaud’s Phenomenon With Herbal Remedies

What is Raynaud’s Phenomenon

Raynaud’s phenomenon is a rare type of vascular disorder portrayed by a colour change in the digits which runs along a pale to red to a blue colour sequence, in other words, a spasm occurs in the blood vessels that supply blood to the skin of the former, mostly as an after effect of an exposure to cold or emotional strain.

A Reynaud’s attack is said to develop as a result of temporary narrowing of blood vessels, triggers most often being, cold exposure or an emotional stress, diminishes the blood supply to fingers and toes which prompt numbness and later turning them white, less blood supply also implies limited oxygen delivery, and hence the digits turn bluish due to the same (cyanosis). As and when the blood supply is restored, there occurs a ‘flushing’ phenomenon that begets the digits red, along with a tingling or throbbing sensation.

Types of Raynaud’s Phenomenon

  1. Primary Raynaud’s
  2. Secondary Raynaud’s

1. Primary Raynaud’s phenomenon mostly affects the age group of 15 years-30 years, and is a common type which simply demands proper self-care. Hereditary disease patterns are mostly found.

2. Secondary Raynaud’s on the other hand is less common and deemed to be of more  serious consequences than the former, attacks are confined to the people above 40 years of age. Secondary Raynaud’s occur as a part of any underlying medical conditions that concerns the vascular system, or can be attributed to smoking, injury to hands/feet, repetitive action of hands and use of certain medications such as beta blockers.


As previously discussed, the clinical features of a Raynaud’s attack can be distinguished by a

  • Numbness in that respective area.
  • Discolouration occurring, pertaining to the area of attack.
  • Freezing sensation on fingers or toes.
  • Throbbing/tingling impression in the later stage.

These symptoms are subjected to the frequency, severity and also the duration of the vasospasm.

Causes of Raynaud’s Phenomenon

The cause of both the types is believed to be idiopathic. However, we can draw a line on an abnormal nervous control in relation to the diameter of the blood vessel and an unexplained nerve sensitivity to lower temperatures.

Reynaud’s phenomenon though not regarded as a serious medical condition, but hinging on severe condition, it is to be noted that the prolonged lack of blood supply might be responsible for ulcerations or a developing gangrene (dead tissue) which poses a challenge for treatment.

Ayurveda’s Knowledge on Reynaud’s Phenomenon

This traditional holistic science of ayurveda mull over the tridosas that administer our body viz vata, pitta and kapha, their normal status marks a healthy body while an imbalance in those three signifies a disease. Ayurveda places its faith not only in a sound body but a healthy mind as well as the former may result in the latter and vice versa. This ancient medical science places its approach to a condition in uprooting the cause as a whole disregarding the superficial symptoms!

Conforming with ayurveda, Raynaud’s phenomenon is a condition characterised by the abnormality of rakta vaha srotas (blood circulatory channel) of our body which is in charge of nourishing and supplying the blood, vyana vayu, a subtype of vata dosha is in charge of the delivery of blood away from the heart, hence any malfunction of the raktavaha srotas affects the vyana vayu as well resulting in an idiosyncrasy of the circulatory system!
