The effects of a low body temperature (under 97.0F or 36.1C) are well documented in the medical physiology textbooks. All efforts should be made to secure the restoration of normal body temperature.
The effect of even the most perfectly selected medicines is limited by the available energy in the body to correctly utilize those medicines. The laws of thermodynamics state that as you decrease in temperature you necessarily decrease in energy, and as you increase temperature, you necessarily increase energy.
We are going to discuss treatment options in this article, however if you want to learn more about the various signs and symptoms of having a low core body temperature then read this link: http://bit.ly/1Fn6CQy
You and your healthcare team must address your body from every direction and with every balancing tool available. You can never truly overcome this condition with just pills. Therapies must engage and reactivate and stimulate the rhythmical, metabolic, and nerve/sense aspects of your body, addressing the body, mind, and spirit.
Other supporting therapies designed for restoring the rhythms of the body must be applied. These therapies might include color and sound therapy, hot and cold contrast therapy, life-activity planning, breathing and voice therapy, rhythmical massage therapy, curative movement therapies, and indeed every other treatment from your doctor will address in some way the rhythmical aspects of your body.
Low body temperature must be addressed to bring the body back to balance. The temperature must be elevated to end the dying process of the body and to help the body eliminate the cellular debris or the “sludge” in the body.
Testing Body Temp Recommendations at Home:
- Temperature monitoring and graphing (upon awakening before getting out of bed, and between 8-10 pm after a 30 minute resting period) Your temp should be no lower than 97.6F in the morning before getting out of bed. You should be a degree warmer in the evening, so 98.6F. If you are cooler in the evening then this too is a problem even if you are within normal temperature ranges. If your oral or axillary temps are normal but your extremities are cold, this is a different problem, but can still be helped with these recommendations.
(If you are testing in the armpit, you should add 1 degree to the final result. If you are taking a rectal temperature reading you should subtract 1 degree from the final result. Rectal readings are the most accurate, however for obvious reasons, close enough with oral or armpit readings are fine.)
Clinical Body Temp Testing (Ask your doctor to do these tests):
- ·Whole Body Thermometry: For 15 years the doctors at the Biologix Center have utilized whole body thermometry, because it is one of the only reproducible tests that let you see how the organs, glands, and other tissues in the body are regulating from the perspective of the Autonomic Nervous System. The system our doctors use is the AlfaSight 9000™ Thermo Diagnostic Test, which has received 510(K) clearance through the FDA Division of Radiological Health. Whole body thermometry is an adjunctive, diagnostic tool that provides a visible measurement of the Autonomic Nervous System, often the key to the causal factors of many diseases. The AlfaSight 9000™ is grounded in the established science of Regulation Thermography which was invented and first commercialized in Germany more than 20 years ago. It is a proven, accurate technology supported by more than 100,000 patient assessments, and has been clinically correlated with hundreds of MRI & CT Scans.
- Lab Testing: Definitely have your doctor do a complete Thyroid Profile, including thyroid antibodies, and Reverse T3. Also ask your doctor to do a 24-hour Saliva Cortisol/DHEA/Female and testosterone hormones test through DiagnosTechs Lab or Labrix. Address any findings with bio-identical hormones and glandular support, such as Cytozyme-AD for the cortisol (Each pill has 2.5 mg of bioidentical cortisol), and for the Thyroid support for Hypothyroid consider ThyroGold (bovine glandular)…definitely not Synthroid. (For great info and online support concerning thyroid issues go to www.StopTheThyroidMadness. The body’s thermostat is NOT the thyroid, which is more the “throttle” of the body. The body’s thermostat is really the hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal, and thyroid axis, along with the functional integrity of the ENTIRE body. Do not get duped into believing you have fixed the core body temperature problems by simply forcing the thyroid to crank out more thyroid hormone, or by bypassing the thyroid by giving Armor or other thyroid glandulars. There is much more to really restoring health. Never do for the body what the body should do for itself, unless all other measures have failed.
- Core Warmth™ herbal formula this organic formula was developed by Dr. David Jernigan to help restore and repair the cellular production of heat, biophoton production, and improve overall energy production of the body. This product is also designed to alleviate congestion all meridians and restore proper fluid dynamics and warmth regulation in the body.
- Use an Amethyst BioMat® from Richway, Inc. We use these mats on all of our Therapeutic Massage tables to help liquify old gelatinous lymph fluid as our therapist strategically apply botanical and homeopathic ointments and oils to key points on your body to promote improved tissue dynamics. When heated with infrared wavelengths, amethyst crystals give off a molecular frequency that a has been used for centuries to provide deep, but gentle detoxification of the body. The mat comes in a full-length or chair-length and can be used periodically during the day or slept on at night to help restore normal body fluid viscosity (liquidity), and help reset core body warmth through variable infrared heat and the negatively-charged ions from amethyst crystals.
- Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna Therapy…The best broad-spectrum Infrared saunas are Sunlighten Saunas, un-treated basswood sauna. The Sunlighten is one of the only companies that offer a full-spectrum of infrared wavelengths (Near, Mid, and Far infrared) that come with 6 preset programs that allow you to determine what health issue you want to target, from the comfort of your own home. You can use the preset programs to target, 1) Detoxification, 2) Pain relief, 3) Weight loss, 4) Cardio, 5) Relaxation, 6) Skin health. These saunas are built to the highest industry standards for the most environmentally sensitive individuals, so there is virtually no outgassing smells and they emit virtually no harmful EMF pollution. Other manufacturers use plastic, hemlock and other materials that in the heat of the sauna can continue to out-gas chemical smells that can cause endocrine system interference, and often emit harmful amounts of EMF pollution. If you have a sauna already and are feeling badly while or after you sit in it, you might just be suffering from the dislodging of toxins in your body, however it could be that you are reacting to the wood or plastic of the sauna, or the emitted EMF pollution from the electronics in the sauna. The specific sauna we use at the Biologix Center is the Sunlighten six person, basswood, broad-spectrum sauna, equipped with Chromotherapy, and Acoustic Resonance Therapy (ART) to achieve even deeper and more profound healing. The healing music played for the Acoustic Resonance therapy in the sauna is frequency-enhanced tones that have been shown to harmonically optimize the cellular and potentially genetic functioning. Often we use Michael Tyrrell Wholetones CD and have seen a “quantum leap” in our results. Obviously I am passionate about this form of healing. I am a big fan of combining multiple ways of facilitating health in the body. Medical Neurology has determined that the more ways we can therapeutically address and affect the nervous system, the more rapid, deeper and longer lasting the healing. So in this one therapy that you can do safely at home you get to sit relaxed, and enjoy the best infrared technology, color therapy (The sauna is bathed in an infinite range of colors of your choosing.), at the same time you are using therapeutic music that sends healing sound frequencies, such as 528 hertz, which is the same sound frequency used by genetic engineers to repair DNA!
- Natural-Bristle, Dry skin brushing: morning and evening. This knocks off the dead skin and rancid oils and soap off so that your pores are open and your body can detoxify the two and a half pounds of waste acids that should be eliminated through the skin every day. Dry skin brushing helps restore proper lymph fluid flow, as you brush your limbs and torso, always stroking up towards the heart, which is where all of the lymph fluid empties. This is inexpensive and again is something you can do for yourself that will help you perspire more freely throughout the day as your body was designed to do.
- Detoxification Bath Therapy:…4 cups Epson Salt 64oz. Hydrogen Peroxide 3% in warm bathtub. Soak for no more than 20 minutes, one bath per night before bedtime.
- Mustard foot bath: This is a formulation that Dr. Jernigan developed, based upon formulations that are used in the Anthroposophical Medicine Hospitals in Europe. This is not just Mustard powder, but a combination of botanicals formulated to help eliminate muscular/joint pain, headaches, as well as help the body restore normal warmth and temperature regulation, and improve energy throughout the body. Use at least once per day, preferably in the morning or early afternoon, but can also be used before bed.
- Solum Aesculus Massage Oil (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.) This oil and essence is great for restoring the warmth organization of the body. This oil is one of the only products I know of that is specifically formulated to help with the restoring the body’s energetic resistance to chemical sensitivities, and those suffering from environmental and weather-change barometric-related sensitivities. The oil and essence are low odor products made by Uriel Pharmacy, Inc. This oil is used as massage oil in many European Biological and Anthroposophical Medicine hospitals by the curative therapeutic massage therapists. May be applied as needed.
- Source Eliminate toxic personal care products, soaps, shampoo, laundry products..anything you would not eat, do not breathe, or put on your skin, or on your clothing.
- Chiropractic spinal, pelvic, and cranial alignments combined with specific homeopathic, nutritional, glandular, and myofascial support using Bio-Resonance Scanning™, or other body circuit balancing technique…as dictated by your healthcare professional. You can take all the right supplements you want and still not get the right effect, if the body itself cannot properly utilize those remedies. Doctors of Chiropractic, especially those trained in more holistic, or bio-energetic ways to work on the entire body, mind, and spirit, can be the key to unlocking the door to the prison that is your illness!
- Cellular Energy Production Testing: Our doctors at the Biologix Center use BRS to test all of the metabolic energy pathways to identify where the breakdown in energy production is occurring…including MTHFR and other genetic interferences, glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, increasing insulin sensitivity, and other biochemical imbalances need to be addressed that are preventing proper energy and thermal regulation. Mitochondrial problems are very common in chronic illnesses.
- Efficient digestion and gut function is essential. Unroasted, green coffee enemas can dramatically assist in liver and intestine cleansing. Consider Fecal Bacteriotherapy.
- PowerPlate®… work up to 20 minutes per day. (Or other movement therapies) You cannot be sedentary and expect your body to produce much energy or heat, however often a person is too weak or is housebound and cannot comprehend working out. This machine is something that you should not buy a cheap knock-off brand, I did when I first bought a similar, but cheaper version of the PowerPlate and it injured by back, hips, and knees! The PowerPlate is a hugely therapeutic device that you can having in your home, that vibrates the cells to action, detoxification, and mobilization of cellular energy production. When I was at my worst with Lyme disease, or other life issues, sometimes all I could do is sit or simply stand on the PowerPlate and let it do its work. I could get rid of much of my pain, and other issues with a minimum of effort. Now that I am well, I get dramatically more out of really exercising on the PowerPlate.
- Consider finding a doctor with PEMF therapy to increase cellular energy. PEMF therapy is the most advanced form of cellular exercise, working on a cellular level it produces the same effects and benefits as physical exercise, but without the stress and strain upon your muscles and bone, a real bonus for those who have gotten dragged too far down by the illness and previous harsh treatments. PEMF is like a deep massage of the organelles inside your cells. By restoring the body’s natural electromagnetic energy through PEMF therapy, cell metabolism is boosted, blood cells are regenerated, circulation is improved and oxygen carrying capacity is increased.· Therapeutic Massage using various homeopathic and herbal ointments (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.) and therapeutic essential oils (Young Living Essential Oils company) (The massage therapists at the Biologix Center use the BioMats on the massage tables to facilitate the liquifying of gelatinous mucin in the tissues. Our all-inclusive treatment packages include daily therapeutic massages.)
- Dietary Changes… call the Biologix Center for Optimum Health (316-686-5900) for the pamphlet Dr. Jernigan wrote on cooling foods and warming foods for restoring optimum body temperature. Eating only organic foods or as close to organic as possible will give your body not just great bioavailable nutrients, but will give your body more inherent energy than commercially grown foods. Intermittent fasting can free up much metabolic energy for healing instead of constantly diverting energy to digest food.
- Reset the cross-wiring of the Limbic System using Dynamic Neural Retraining System. This is Annie Hopper’s science-based, brainchild. This program is offered in DVD’s that you can implement in the comfort and security of your own home, or there are powerful workshops that you can attend, where through the synergy of trainers and other people going through program, often combine to create dramatic shifts. Impaired Limbic System function is associated with many of these so-called “mysterious” illnesses. Through using neuroplasticity promoting techniques, participants are methodically instructed in how to create positive changes in the structure and function of the limbic system. Your cells and indeed your entire body is energetically, and biochemically following the instructions it is receiving from the Limbic System. The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) represents a new paradigm in healing chronic illnesses as we discover the link between brain function and optimal health. My wife and I, as well as some of our Hansa staff and doctors have taken the DNRS program, and/or seen dramatic longterm healing in our own lives, and in that of Hansa patients.
- There are many more targeted things that we can do to facilitate the restoration of optimum function and reset the core body temperature regulation, but this should get you started.
As you can see, restoring the optimum core temperature is rarely as simple as saying, “Here, take this wonder-pill and call me in the morning.” It takes work. It will likely take a few months to a year or more to fully repair the problems. Many of these treatments can be done at home at relatively low cost. Incorporate as many of these as you can. Check with your doctor before beginning any new therapy.
For more advanced conditions add the following:
· Prescription-only, daily injections of Homeopathic, Viscum Album (V. Mali for women, and V. Quercus for men) from your prescribing physician. (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.)
