Many doctors are not aware that low body temperatures can cause severe problems or that they can be corrected. Therefore, they rarely check patients for low temperatures. In fact, the body temperature is probably the most important reading doctors rarely check!
Absolutely, a low body temperature is more than enough to explain many debilitating symptoms such as:
Low sex drive
and many others…
Carpal tunnel Syndrome
Many people regain their health when they reset their low temperatures back to normal through the use of stress reduction, rest, healthy diet, exercise, or the WT3 protocol described in the Doctor’s Manual. Probably the most exciting part is that they often remain improved even after they stop taking the T3.
It’s easy to see how important body temperatures are to good health. You know that people can get sick and die from heat stroke, and you know that people can die from hypothermia. You know people can feel terrible when they have a fever that is just 1.5 degrees above normal. It’s obvious that people can feel terrible when their temperatures are 1.5 degrees below normal. Of course temperature matters.
A proper temperature is critical for proper function of the body. Body temperature affects virtually all bodily functions. The thyroid system plays a key role in maintaining normal body temperatures. However, people can have low temperatures and severe symptoms even when their thryoid glands and thyroid blood tests are completely normal.
You see, under conditions of severe stress like childbirth, divorce, death of a loved one, or job or family stress, the body has the ability to slow down in order to conserve energy. When that occurs the temperature will frequently go down below 98.0 F, and patients will often develop symptoms as described above (the body can conserve energy by shutting down energy spent on expendible items such as hair, skin, and nails).
All this is normal and often helpful. However, after the stress has passed, the body is supposed to speed back up again to a normal temperature and vigorous good health…but sometimes it doesn’t. Persistent low body temperatures and symptoms in the face of normal thyroid blood tests is called Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. Luckily, Wilsons Temperature Syndrome is usually reversible.(information for physicians HERE)
Some people can recover by reducing stress and improving diet and exercise and other health measures such as sleep. Others benefit from definitive medical treatment with a special thyroid hormone protocol.
