What would be a treatment for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome. Kindly Advice if any.

Medical science has still not managed to discover a treatment for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome. However, depending upon what stage of the disease you are in, you can employ methods that will bring you relief and sometimes also help with arresting it rather than letting it advance. You can use various methods for relief; especially if you have managed to get yourself diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome while it is still in stage one. Stage one is normally considered to be acute, followed by stage two, which is dystrophic and stage three which is atrophic and mostly results in osteoporosis. While still in the first stage, the degeneration in this disease would tend to be rapid. At the first stage, when the patient is still mobile, there is a chance that the disease can be controlled via exercise and simple home remedies. The body will also respond better to treatment in the beginning that it will after a point of degeneration. A daily routine of exercise would help to develop muscular control and would also lead to increased strength of the bones. However, it is good to know that Yoga is the best kind of exercise for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome. This is because exercise needs to be gradual and gentle. You can also take walks, which will help out a lot.

In terms of dietary changes, you can switch consuming sour foods altogether. This will stop further degeneration of your bones by not allowing them to leach calcium. It is also important to increase your intake of calcium which is soluble in the body. The richest sources of this would be soy products, tofu, yogurt and spinach. For the burning sensations that may typically accompany the pain in the first stage of the disease, you can apply cool compresses for relief. You can dip washcloths in a solution of sandalwood powder and rosewater and apply this to areas where the burning is greatest. This will bring immediate relief. If you are afflicted with unnatural inflammation, which is also common, you can apply warm compresses to the swollen areas. This will help to disperse the blood that is pooled and will thus reduce swelling. If you apply cold compresses in cases of inflammation, you will actually end up causing stiffness. Your best bet is to stay away from that. In order to help healing from within, boost your immunity by taking a regular dosage of Echinacea.
