Raynaud's Disease / Weight-loss

"I am a 21 year old female and have had poor circulation for as long as I can remember, but over the past two years it has got progressively worse particularly in my hands going from very cold to getting hot and swollen. When I went to see my GP about it, she diagnosed me with Raynauds disease and told me it was about managing my symptoms. 

After a bit of research I saw a suggestion that diet can have an affect on the symptoms. I have also been struggling with my weight and although not overweight, I am larger then i would like to be. Therefore I decided it would be a good idea to visit a nutritionist. I found Claudine through a google search and booked a set of three appointments. 

In the first session she primarily addressed my Raynauds symptoms with supplements and a tailored diet which would help with circulation and also help to level out my blood sugars (a contributing factor to weight). I felt effects within the first couple of weeks and had more energy and wasn't having as many adverse Raynauds symptoms. At the second appointment when it was likely that my blood sugars were more stable, Claudine suggested a few other methods which could aid with speeding up metabolism. By my third visit i had lost 10 pounds.

Claudine has been great and works hard with her clients to tailor a diet which will fit in with your lifestyle."
