Raynaud’s Disease

Raynaud’s Disease, an extremely painful and serious complain, takes its name from the French physician who identified and researched the condition. Raynaud’s disease affects people who are hypersensitive to cold. The hands and feet suddenly turn pale and numb. In severe cases they take on a bluish tinge and there is a burning pain. About 5 per cent of people in Britain suffer from Raynaud’s Disese at some stage in their lives. It usually affects women more than men.

In China it is equally familiar, and is regularly treated in Chinese Medicine hospitals. If caught in the early stages, there is a good prognosis, but in advanced stages (fortunately rare) gangrene may develop and amputation may be necessary. A Chinese Medicine practitioner will prescribe Cinnamon twigs and Chinese angelica for Raynaud’s Disease.
