Cold hands: causes and natural remedies

Cold hands: causes and natural remedies

This problem is very common in winter, but if you always have cold hands there might be a problem. Here its causes and some remedies!

Especially during winter, when temperatures are low, your hands can freeze. One of the causes might be a poor blood flow, due to an incorrect diet or a sedentary lifestyle. Even anxiety and irritability can contribute to this problem, because they accelerate the heartbeat and make the oxygen concentrate in the central part of the body. An incorrect diet, instead, can cause bad digestion, which can reduce the blood pression.

Cold hands: causes

Unfortunately, cold hands might be a symptom for a more serious disease. Among them, there is the Raynaud’s syndrome, which especially affects women from 25 to 45 years old, hypothyroidism or anemia. If you suffer from one of these diseases, you should see a doctor to understand the best way to treat it.
