Few people know about this, but 50 years ago, scientist Otto Barnes discovered that body temperature is an excellent indicator of how the thyroid gland works.
There is only one caveat: Body temperature should be measured immediately after waking up, in bed.
Barnes notes that the abnormal temperature at night – the first sign of an inflammatory process in the thyroid gland. But now everyone knows that if this organ of our body does not work properly, we will have many problems!
All you need is a thermometer.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Prepare better early, even before bed. Mercury should be at a level not higher than 35 degrees(95F).
- As soon as you wake up, just place the thermometer under your arm. Let it stay there longer than usual – 10 minutes.
- Save the result.
- Remember that this is rightly called “morning basal temperature”. The normal range is 36.5 ° C to 36.8 ° C (97.7F-98.2F)
Here’s how to interpret the results:
– If you have a temperature – from 36.5 ° C to 36.8 ° C (97.7F – 98.2F), it means that everything is fine with the thyroid gland.
– If the morning temperature is below 36.5 ° C (97.7F), you have hypothyroidism. This means that the thyroid gland is not working as actively as it should. Maybe this is the reason for the symptoms of chronic fatigue, depression, you often suffer from colds and problems with memory and concentration. In most cases, hair loss can also be seen.
– If the morning temperature is above 36.8 ° C (98.2F), you have hyperthyroidism. This is when the thyroid gland works above normal. Most likely, there is some strong inflammatory process in the body. i.e. you have not been treated!
Remember that the “purity” of the results of the procedure must be repeated at least three times on three different days.
If during this time the result does not fall into the “normal” recurrence, you should go for a consultation with an endocrinologist and investigate the cause of the problems.
Yet. If the deviation is small, and you do not have the strength to go to the doctor, try to solve the problem.
The main thing in this case – the right diet. You should get enough selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B, and magnesium. All these minerals are essential for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
