Raynaud's Syndrome is a condition whereby the constriction of arteries prevents adequate blood flow to certain extremities. It's a condition that typically affects the hands and less commonly, the toes, but in certain cases it has been known to affect the nose and lips .
There's no known ‘test' for Raynaud's Syndrome and diagnosis is usually made on the strength of symptoms.
There is blood flow monitoring technology, but it's rarely required to diagnose the condition. Diagnosis is usually a straightforward process given the clarity of the symptoms that most patients present. The common symptoms of Raynaud's Syndrome include…
- Cold fingers and/or toes
- Pale, discoloured fingers and/or toes
- Numbness or tingling
- Difficulty moving the affected areas
The symptoms can last for a few minutes to a few hours. Whilst they're not considered serious per se, they can be uncomfortable and truly unpleasant for the sufferer so treatment options need to be sought.

Non-Medical Treatment Options for Raynaud's Syndrome
Where possible it is desirable to avoid medicine – if you can control the condition without chemical intervention, all the better. Thankfully there are a number of things you can do yourself to reduce the symptoms of Raynaud's Syndrome.
In a 2017 study of the management of the condition, evidence suggested that the lifestyle interventions that are suggested can be very effective against the condition . This is excellent news as it proves that as a sufferer of Raynaud's, you aren't merely a victim of the condition and that you can actually take a proactive approach to help solve the problems associated with the condition yourself.
Here are some of the management techniques you can apply to looking after your Raynaud's Syndrome, helping to keep the condition and its effects at bay…
This is an obvious one because staying warm helps to stimulate the blood flow to the peripheries, such as the hands, feet and face. As a Raynaud's Syndrome sufferer, staying warm should be your priority.
Smoking has been proven to impact circulation and can have a dramatic effect on the severity of Raynaud's Syndrome. Research shows that smoking increases ‘arterial stiffness' which reduces the blood flow through the vessels, resulting in restricted blood flow to the extremities. 
We're not suggesting you have to start a vigorous exercise regime here (but it's always a good idea!), but some kind of frequent daily movement helps to increase heart rate and therefore improve circulation. Whether that's a daily walk, a gym visit, a dance class or any of the above – just try to move your body every day, ideally multiple times per day.
Using KYMIRA Products to Improve Raynaud's Syndrome Symptoms
KYMIRA fabrics have a unique set of properties built into them. They have a particular array of minerals woven into the fabric. These minerals are selected for their ability to absorb otherwise wasted energy from the wearer and surrounding light, which is then re-directed into the body, stimulating a series of positive biological processes.
It sounds too good to be true, but the reality is KYMIRA products have been independently lab tested to prove they work. Not only do the tests show that KYMIRA products do as they say, but they are so effective that they have been certified as a medical garment!
There are a number of reasons why KYMIRA products are so effective when it comes to treating Raynaud's Syndrome…
They Replicate the Effects of Medicine
One of the medical approaches, PDE5 inhibitors work by increasing the availability and effect of Nitric Oxide (NO). Nitric Oxide is a vasodilator – it widens the blood vessels which allows more blood to flow through them, improving circulation. KYMIRA infrared clothing actually stimulates the production of NO in the body, repeating this effect .
KYMIRA is a Pain Killer
There is a mild analgesic effect from KYMIRA clothing and it also helps to reduce the production of inflammatory mediators. Whilst it'd be inaccurate to claim KYMIRA is a powerful painkiller, it certainly helps to reduce mild discomfort.
The KYnergy fabric with which KYMIRA clothing is made from is unique when it comes to warming and cooling the body. Studies show that the fabric insulates 63% better than other fabrics of the equivalent weight. With warmth being so important to combatting Raynaud's Syndrome, KYMIRA is a potent weapon against the condition.
