A Low Body Temperature May Be Causing Many of Your Health Problems
Restore Your Health by Resetting Your Body Temperature
A low body temperature is a very reliable indicator of poor health that can often be corrected with restorative medical techniques. Learn here about a special thyroid treatment that many doctors are using to reset patients' body temperatures.
Does This Sound Like You?
- You know something is wrong with your health, and that you need to fix it so you can live a normal life.
- You've been to doctor after doctor, only to be told it's all in your head.
- Your doctor says your blood tests look good so you must be fine.
- Your doctor wants to give you antidepressants because he doesn't believe your symptoms are real.
- You're suffering from a number of disturbing and baffling symptoms, and your doctor says there's nothing wrong with you and that there's nothing that can be done to help you.
- You might be wondering about your own sanity, or if everyone with your age and circumstances feels the way that you do.
A Normal Temperature Is Critical for Good Health
Body temperature is the foundation of good health. Like a fever, a low body temperature is a strong indicator that there is something wrong, but it can be fixed.
This symptom can explain many health problems, such as: fatigue, headaches, migraines, PMS, easy weight gain, depression, irritability, fluid retention, anxiety and panic attacks, hair loss, poor memory, poor concentration, low sex drive, unhealthy nails, dry skin and hair, cold intolerance, heat intolerance, low motivation, low ambition, insomnia, allergies, acne, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, odd swallowing sensations, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle and joint aches, slow healing, sweating abnormalities, Raynaud's Phenomenon, itchiness, irregular periods, easy bruising, ringing of the ears, flushing, bad breath, dry eyes, blurred vision, and more.
All of our bodily functions are the result of chemical reactions that are catalyzed by enzymes. Without proper enzyme function, the chemical reactions will either take place too sluggishly, or not at all. The function of every enzyme depends on its shape for its activity, and its shape depends on its temperature. That's why it is absolutely critical to have a normal temperature for good health.
Wilson's Temperature Syndrome is a term used to describe a chronically low body temperature, which is often the result of people becoming physically or emotionally overwhelmed. Stress can cause the body temperature to drop and symptoms to develop. The problem can be so severe that the body cannot adapt under the current circumstances and recover a normal temperature.
Persistently low temperatures typically come on or worsen after severe stress such as:
- Childbirth (leading cause)
- Death of a loved one
- Job or family stress
- Surgery or accidents
Though your body temperature should recover once the stress is over, sometimes it doesn't (a condition known as Wilson's Temperature Syndrome, or WTS).
When people's temperatures are low, they are often:
- Frustrated about trying product after product to no avail
- Sad they can't function normally for their children and spouses
- Outraged that people conclude it's all in their heads
When their temperatures normalize, most people get their lives back and it's as if there was never anything wrong. In fact, many people are mad that they were suffering needlessly (and lost so much of their lives) when the solution was so simple.
How Common Is Wilson's Temperature Syndrome?
WTS is five times more common in women, and it is more common in patients whose ancestors survived famine, such as those with Irish, American Indian, Scot, Welsh, Russian, and Polish backgrounds.
It's estimated that at least 30% of Americans suffer complaints due to low temperatures. Since people suffering from Wilson's Temperature Syndrome (WTS) have normal thyroid blood tests, it's common for it to go undiagnosed.
Many doctors will say, "You're just getting older," or, "You're just not getting enough sleep or exercise," or, "You're just under stress." This is compounded by the fact that thyroid blood tests are often completely normal.
How Can You Recover From WTS?
If left untreated, Wilson's Temperature Syndrome can sometimes correct itself over a period of months to years though it often persists and even worsens.
The first thing patients with WTS can try is changing their current conditions. Anything that can enhance patients' physical or emotional well-being has a chance of turning their WTS around.
Here are a few examples:
- Eliminate as much physical and emotional stress as possible
- Exercise moderately for 12-15 minutes, 2 - 4 times per day (especially about 30 minutes after meals)
- Eat small frequent meals (on the order of six per day) that are high in protein, and low in carbohydrates
- Avoid wheat and refined sugar products
- Get plenty of rest
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
More severe cases of Wilson's Syndrome may require a supplement called the WT3 protocol to bring the temperature up and correct the symptoms.
Medical Treatment for WTS—The WT3 Protocol
WTS appears to be due to a bogging down of the thyroid system due to impaired T4 to T3 conversion. This bogging down of the thyroid system appears to be perpetuated by RT3 in the tissues, as well as perhaps other factors. Once the system is bogged down, it appears that backlogged raw thyroid hormone (T4) can also adversely compete with the active thyroid hormone (T3). Even though T4 is the source of T3, if it's not being converted well it can actually be a significant hindrance!
Wilson's T3 protocol is aimed at depleting RT3 levels in the tissues of the body, for a time. This is accomplished by reducing T4, its only source. T4 is reduced by reducing TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). TSH is reduced by giving patients pure T3 directly.
When patients are given pure T3 directly, their bodies sense that they are getting enough thyroid stimulation so they reduce their own production of thyroid hormones.
The purpose of the treatment is not so much to give patients' thyroid glands a rest (although that does happen), as it is to clear RT3 (by clearing T4) out of the tissues so that their thyroid systems can get de-bogged, cleaned out, and reset. This appears to be what enables the patients' thyroid systems to function well on their own again. Wilson's T3 therapy does not need to be taken for life, but only for a few weeks or months.
Fortunately, if the T3 therapy is given properly, patients can often feel terrifically well even while their thyroid systems are on the way to recovery!
The keys to the WT3 protocol are making sure you're taking the correct kind of thyroid medication properly so you can re-achieve a normal body temperature with minimal side effects.
T3 is best tolerated when well-prepared with a sustained release agent. The T3 is usually found in capsules that are designed to be taken twice a day, every 12 hours. The T3 capsules must be prescribed by a doctor.
Like any medication, if Wilson's Temperature Treatment is not done properly patients can waste a lot of time and money (on visits and medicine) without even knowing it. The term Wilson's T3 protocol or WT3 protocol is used to distinguish it from other ways doctors give T3 medicine.
Since Dr. Wilson began emphasizing the importance of T3 medicine over T4, many doctors have started using T3 medicine. However, achieving the benefits of T3 therapy is not just a matter of taking the substance, but of taking it properly. It's like driving a car. To get where you want to go, it's not just a matter of getting in the car and driving, but you must make the correct turns, at the correct times, and under the correct circumstances.
A lot of mistakes, frustration, guesswork, worrying and perhaps even severe side effects can usually be easily avoided with good information.
Herbal Solutions to Wilson's Temperature Syndrome
WTSmed Supplements are an assortment of supplements designed to support optimal good health. They are made up of natural substances such as herbs, vitamins, and minerals, and many are available without a prescription.
Many compounds within a given plant can work together to help restore certain organ functions. Consequently, whole plants are put into WTSmed Supplements.
Restoring health often requires a particular combination of herbs taken in different quantities at the same time. WTSmed Supplements have been formulated in such a way that each bottle could be considered a complete herbal kit unto itself (many WTSmed Supplements contain a combination of 5 or more herbs).
Different organ systems (circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system) carry out different body functions, and different herbs can help different organ systems. In other words, the functions of the body are organized by organ systems, and the herbs that benefit the functions of the body also seem to be organized by organ system (not just symptom).
Unlike drugs that are typically aimed at single symptoms (anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, anti-diarrhea, etc.), herbs tend to restore specific organs or organ systems.
The healing powers are actually in the plants themselves and the secrets are knowing which plants to use together. If your body is lacking something it needs to recover then it makes sense that it would come from plants because all your food comes directly or indirectly from plants.
WTSmed Supplements are:
- Expertly formulated by a former endocrinology professor of naturopathic medicine
- Certified organic
- Made from the most effective parts of the plants
- Environmentally grown and ethically wildcrafted (when collected from natural habitats)
