How Does Our Raynaud's phenomenon Treatment Benefit You?

Raynaud’s phenomenon refers to a condition in which the blood vessels in extremities are narrowed and restrict the blood flow. In this condition, the episodes of attacks affect the fingers and toes. These attacks are triggered from cold conditions and emotional stress. The mechanism of these is attack- during attacks, the small blood vessels in the fingers and toes are constricted in response to temperature of stress and freezes that part.
‘Siragata Vata’ is the term in Ayurveda for Raynaud’s phenomenon. There is blockage in channels within the body known as siras (veins and venules). This blockage leads to suptata (numbness) and stabdhata (stiffness) which is followed by dourbalya (debility) and kashya (emaciation). This may lead to decrease in functioning of hands and legs in the long run.
The treatment for Raynaud’s phenomenon in Ayurveda serves its purpose for reversing the condition in a natural way. Raktamokshana is the treatment given in which leeches are used. Further, seka of decoctions is done over the affected area, which helps in restoring the blood circulation. Abhyanga also helps with this condition. Moreover, to pacify the effects of Pitta and Vata dosha, proper diet plan and yoga asanas are suggested. This entire line of treatment helps in reversing Raynaud's phenomenon effectively.

Raynaud’s phenomenon in Ayurveda:

The three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha circulate all over the body and due to the subtle nature of Vata dosha, it impels the both doshas. The aggravation of Vata dosha provokes the other two doshas, exacerbates and fills up the empty channels in the body by greatly moving into them. This aggravated Vata dosha in blood vessels induces cold sensitivity and the reason is the obstructed blood flow.

Treatment of Raynaud’s phenomenon:

There are two lines of treatment for Raynaud’s phenomenon in Ayurveda:

  1. Samana Chikitsa: This involves procedures like Maharasnadi kashyam, Sanjivani vati, Chitrakadi gutika, Ashta churnam, Panchakola churna, Hinguvachadi churnam, and Balarishtam.
  2. Shodhana Chikitsa: This involves procedures like Vasthi, abhayangam, sevadana, lepana, and upanaha.
