Many times patients state that they feel as if they are in a mental fog. They describe having short-term memory problems of the sort where they will walk from one room to another and forget why they are there. During their conversations they may begin a sentence and forget their point halfway through. They may hear an interesting news story and wait anxiously for the opportunity to relate the exciting news break to their spouse, only to find that they are able to remember so few of the details that they may not even be able to communicate the gist of the story. They may have short term memory problems at work and may even forget temporarily the last names of people with whom they have worked closely for years. They frequently have difficulty studying for exams, finding themselves reading the same page over and over and over again six or seven times, still not being able to remember what they have read. Some patients will pick up old novels they have read before and will realize they have already read it only after reading three quarters of the way through the book. They frequently have difficulty concentrating on tasks at work and find that their minds wander easily. With the WT3 protocol, the mental fog can be lifted enabling people to remember what they are saying, what they are doing, and what they are reading. Proper therapy can even help Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome sufferers in their studies.
When a patient has difficulty remembering things or paying attention as an adult, it may be said they have a short term memory problem or decreased concentration. When such symptoms are found in children, especially when coupled with other symptoms of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome such as irritability, such patients are sometimes said to have attention deficient disorder (ADD), be “hyperactive”, or be learning disabled.
Learning that the tendency for developing Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome can be hereditary, a patient who had been responding very well to the WT3 protocol, brought her son in to be evaluated as well. It was found that he was frequently quite tired and had trouble concentrating at school and was having difficulty with his studies. Multiple body temperature readings demonstrated that his average body temperature ran consistently below normal, around 97.8 degrees. In many ways he was similar to the way his mother was prior to treatment. Somewhere along the line he had been diagnosed as having attention deficit disorder (he was approximately 12 years old). With normalization of his body temperature pattern with the WT3 protocol, his fatigue resolved and he found his classes more interesting. In fact, shortly after he had started therapy, he brought home a decidedly uncharacteristic A+ on one of his assignments. Both mother and son could see an unequivocal improvement in his school performance.
