Just thought I would post this information in case it might help those suffering from Raynaud's Disease.    

I take an over-the-counter supplement that has almost cured my raynaud's disease (and I have severe raynaud's...I used to get red sores from my fingers and toes not getting blood circulation during the attacks).  I take one 50 mg capsure of Petadolex (that's the brand name for butterbur.)   Many people use butterbur to reduce or eliminate migraines (which I also suffer from and was the reason I tried taking Petadolex).  Petadolex hasn't helped my migraines one bit, but has almost eliminated my raynaud's attacks!!  Perhaps it will help with your raynaud's as well.  I wish you the best of luck.

      I don't usually suffer from migranes, but I had a couple of bad episodes 2 years ago. I had  acupuncture treatment and she recommended these 100% natural rchinese pill  PIAN TOU TONG WAN. I took 8 pills 3 times a day. They are liitle and did not cause any upset stomach, but they took the pain away.
