Non-Medical Treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome

Non-Medical Treatment of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome

If left untreated, Wilson’s Thryoid Syndrome can:

  1. Sometimes correct itself over a period of months to years
  2. Often persist and worsen in stages over a period of decades

Without a Doctor’s help people can try:

  • Eliminating as much physical, and emotional stress from their lives as possible
  • Moderate exercise for 12-15 minutes, 2 – 4 times/day (especially about 30 minutes after meals)
  • Small frequent meals (on the order of 6/day) that are high in protein, and low in carbohydrate
  • Getting plenty of rest

Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is often a result of people becoming physically and/or emotionally overwhelmed. Anything that can enhance a person’s physical or emotional well-being has a chance of turning their Wilsons Temperature Syndrome around. This may include correcting any nutritional deficiencies patients may have, or correcting any other disease processes that may be going on. However, Wilsons Temperature Syndrome itself may contribute to certain deficiencies and diseases that might clear up quickly if the Wilsons Temperature Syndrome was corrected.

One problem with correcting nutritional deficiencies is that it’s hard for people to know what nutrient they may be deficient in. They could take dozens of herbs and vitamins and still miss the one they might really be needing, and never know it. Some people are lucky enough to find some kind of approach or product that works well for them. Unfortunately there are many more that end up trying product after product, year after year, and never finding anything that works very well.

Rather than trying to find a combination of many things that might be helpful, sometimes it’s a lot easier, more enlightening, less expensive, less time-consuming, and more productive to try one thing that has an excellent chance of helping almost everything else. The body temperature is the one factor that can affect virtually every chemical reaction in the body. Currently, the most definitive way to reset the body temperature is with Wilson’s Temperature Treatment.

About the Author:

Denis Wilson, MD described Wilson 's Temperature Syndrome in 1988 after observing people with symptoms of low thyroid and low body temperature, yet who had normal blood tests. He found that by normalizing their temperatures with T3 (without T4) their symptoms often remained improved even after the treatment was discontinued. He was the first doctor to use sustained-release T3.

    I have had a low body temperature for years. I first discovered it when trying to conceive my son. I was told to track my body temperature on a chart provided by my fertility doctor. I was horrified when most days my temperature was not even on the chart!!! Several trips to an acupuncturist got my temp raised enough to become pregnant and deliver a healthy son. He is now almost 4 and my temperature issues are worse than ever. Any season except summer is dreadful. As soon as the sun goes down I am freezing, I layer up to sleep under multiple comforters, wool socks etc. during the day I am chilly but it isn’t as bad as night time. Iam overweight, low energy and no matter what i do I cannot seem to shake this. The nearest doctor trained in your protocol is over an hour away. My question is how often would I need to see e doctor and approximately what is the cost of treatment??

      Wow that sounds chilly. You might see the doctor about once a month. Maybe less often as time goes on. Doctor rates vary. You could call a couple on the list and ask them. Best regards :)

    I believe I may have Wilsons syndrome. I have swollen ankles, gained weight (15#’s in the last 2 years) my hair is thinning, I am often tired and my sleep is erratic also my skin is different as is my entire body. I am nwo 58 and finishing up menopause which has been pretty easy. My concern is two fold, I live in VT and I am guessing there is noone here trained to deal with this, so what do I do? And how costly is this? I have no health insurance.

      Hi Linda :)
      On there are suggestions of things people can try without a prescription to try and get their temperatures up. You can also educate a doctor near you. T3 therapy is usually less than $100 / month, and usually lasts a few months.

    Try inclined bed therapy….it normalizes my temperature within minutes!! But during the day it drops again. Hope soon to have it normal. T3 gave me bad headaches the very day I tried it….temperature even lowered, so I reckon I was a one day compensator. Inclined bed therapy might be the other cure for Wilsons. Any comment from the doc would be welcome.

    Been having a 36.5 degree Celsius temp for years. I find if I use ozone it goes up sometimes to 38, for a few hours. Also when using a zapper it usually goes to 37 and drops again after a couple of hours. Even certain supplements like Indian chyawanprash have this effect. Otherwise am quite healthy with just nibbling issues…tonsillitis for years, etc. husky voice. With inclined bed therapy I wake up with 37 degrees…still in bed!! Feel good. But during the day sometimes it drops and I start coughing. Any comments Doc!

    I have had body aches, headaches, freezing hands, dry cough, anxiety and other symptoms which led me to consult with a doctor. After getting all the blood tests done the doc told me the results were fine and that i only had low t3, but that my thyroid was fine and t4 was also fine. I received no help from the doc on my symptoms, and now i get to know about this syndrome. I took my body temperature during the day at different times and on average it was 35.8 celcius. I wonder if this means i have this syndrome and if so how can i cure it with an over the counter treatment because considering it is not an accepted diagnosis a regular doc will never give me a prescription of t3….is there any speciaƱ.vitamin or herb which will help? The symptoms are really troubling my quality of life, specially with the body aches…maybe ots fibromyalgia, but that also has no blood test to get prooved please!! Thanks in advance

      Sure thing. has information on how to get your temperature up without a prescription. If that doesn’t work you can go to a doctor listed on our website as trained. If that doesn’t work the website also has instructions on how to recruit your own doctor to work with you. I will be happy to help your doctor for free.

    Wow this is very interesting I also suffer from all cold extremities mainly feet, and my temp is never over 97 which is scary when I’m sick and my body is trying to fight. I feel my fever only kicks in when I don’t eat for a long time as soon as I eat I cold feet ughhhhh. But I have extremely high levels of mercury so I’m assuming my adrenals are worn out and my gut is always inflamed as I can’t get above 120 lbs. but I took a thyroid test as well as an all day saliva test for my adrenals I guess we will find out soon. If I need to supplement t3 is there a recommended dose and type?
    Thank you

    I’m 42 and since at least 8 I’ve never been able to tolerate being physically active in temps over 75 without becoming extremely sick , with massive migraine for hours sometimes throwing up. My face becomes very red and now I sweat so bad its embarrassing and I’m an extremely active person but in spring and fall have to do all my work at night to avoid getting sick from the heat. My biggest challenge is my gallbldder was removed when i was 14 thinning my hair to the point ive had people ask if i have cancer and i have never been able to lose weight no matter what i try im always 50-60 pounds over weight i always assumed my low body temp is what caused the heat intolerance and when i get sick my temp drops instead of elevating. If wilsons syndrome is the cause of all this and treating this can help me stop the things that ive literally struggled with my entire life cause me the lowest self esteem possible then for me this would be a miracle but i have to ask will i have a problem getting a dr. To reckognize this as the problem and treat the symptoms as such or am i going to have to search for one who will treat for this

      Hi Christine :) You may very well have a problem finding a doctor since most doctors weren’t taught about it in medical school. I’d be happy to talk to any of your local doctors about your case for free, if it will help. You can also look for a doctor here:

    I live in Tasmania Australia and don’t suppose there is anyone here to treat me. I have chronic low body temperature usually abotu 35C. It seems to make me struggle to fight infections, and yes I also have a mild hypothyroid condition.

    is there any way I can get help, because this sounds as if it could make a huge difference to my life?

    • Dr. Denis Wilson November 15, 2015 at 3:55 pm - Reply

      Hi Bea! Probably the best thing you can do is to find a local doctor that is at least open minded enough to discuss your case with me. I can then help that doctor help you to hopefully recover. Good luck.

    Does ferritin levels have anything to do with WTS? Last month I checked mineand it was high in the normal range .
    Last week I also checked my hormones levels, TSH was on the low side, both FT4 and FT3 were on the higher side which means I’m closer to Hyperthyroid but why do I have a low body temperature? The highest would be 98.4 and the lowest would be 97.5. I also sweat like crazy on hot days and feel cold on rainy days. I live in Indonesia by the way.

    Also, what kind of supplements and foods would you suggest to help raise body temperature?

    Hi Dr. Wilson,
    I am a 58 year old hypothyroid patient who has been taking synthroid mostly or armour thyroid (couldn’t get access to it on a regular basis) for about 35 years and have always felt that it wasn’t helping. I recently came upon your syndrome while researching low body temperature and many bells and whistles went off. I suffer from at least if not more than half of the symptoms described by you and yes have been told by Drs.that all is well with my thyroid levels. I live in Michigan and the Drs. on your website that are listed here are not taking new patients and cannot recommend anyone. I am in the greater Detroit area and am willing to travel up to a couple hours to get help but was wondering if you have any updated lists for this area of doctors in tune with your program. I would love to be “normal” again. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks, Dianne

      I’m sorry I don’t have other referrals that aren’t on the website, but you could try Holtorf Medical group, which may have a location closer to you. Best of luck!
