In brief: Not really

Other than treating the underlying condition(s) causing raynaud's symptoms, avoiding emotional stress, keeping warm, not smoking, and avoiding caffeine, some medications can help.
Nifedipine, diltiazem, losartan, and prazosin have been used in patients with raynaud's phenomenon, to block vasospasm and/or relax vessels so they can dilate to let more blood flow through them.

In brief: What is the cause?

We need to know why she has raynaud's.
Do not ignore the causes. Home remedies - dress warm centrally, wear gloves, a hat and socks. Insulated gloves, insulated socks, seat warmers in the car and hand warmers can all help. Avoiding cold is important; sometimes we recommend sewing magnets into gloves and place them on the refrigerator door so you wear gloves when you go into the fridge.
