I have an interesting case. I have a 58 y/o white female 250 5’5″ that presents with A typical Raynaud’s Syndrome. First only her right hand was affected causing two severe wound to develop on her index and middle fingers. Now her left hand and fingers are bluish and it loks like woounds developing on her left index and ring fingers. Any suggestions to help with her condition.
I have given her the following supplements:
Ginkgo B, Bilberry, Omega 3 and 6, Vitamin C
Can microcurrent be helpful and if so how should this be administered? Her Internist originally prescribed Z Pack which was of no benefit. Her Chiropractor has given her cervical adjustments without success.
I sent her to a wound clinic where she has placed on Levaquin. She has just completed her third series dose of the antibiotic.Her ANA was Negative.
The wound clinic wants her to see a Rheumatologist to which she has an appt in March. Time is of the essences as I don’t want her to loose her fingers. Any suggestions?

Hi Doc C.,
My treatment style is to try a series of techniques and note responses both through kinesiology and observed changes until I see what is working. Here are the treatments I would consider with this patient, in order of priority:
1) Polarized Microlight therapy – using + proximal, – distal along dermatomes and myotomes of affected upper extremities. Use color therapy to stimulate circulation such as red or scarlet.
2) Use Micro-Macro technique to connect affected hand areas to corresponding ear points and facial zones, again using polarized microcurrent and light.
3) Use flooding therapy through pad electrodes. I developed a protocol called Dermatome Interferential that uses four pads – one set polarized, one biphasic for treating extremity disorders like this – much more effective than just local microcurrent stim.
4) There is a correspondence between the Root Chakra and the hands and feet. I would test her to see if she is chronically blocked at that center. If so, use chakra opening and strengthening Microlight techniques with guided visualizations and affirmation to help her deal with the underlying issues keeping that center shut down.
I hope this helps!
