Few people know about this, but 50 years ago, scientist Otto Barnes discovered that the temperature of the body is an excellent indicator of the thyroid gland.
There is only one warning: The body temperature should be measured immediately after waking, still in bed.
Barnes notes that abnormal temperature at night – is the first sign of inflammation in the thyroid gland. But now everyone knows that if this organ of our body is not working properly, we will have many problems!
All you need is a thermometer.
Here’s what you need to do:
* Prepare yourself better sooner, even before bedtime. Mercury should be at a level no higher than 35 degrees.
* As soon as you wake up, just put the thermometer under your arm. Let it stay there for longer than usual – 10 minutes.
* Record the result. Remember, this is rightly called “morning basal temperature”. The normal range is 36.5 ° C to 36.8 ° C.
Here’s how to interpret the results:
* If you have a temperature of 36.5 ° C to 36.8 ° C, then with the thyroid gland everything is in order.
* If the temperature in the morning is below 36.5 ° C, you have hypothyroidism. This means that the thyroid does not work as actively as it should. Perhaps this is the reason why the symptoms of chronic fatigue, depression, often suffer from colds and memory and concentration problems. In most cases, hair loss can also be seen.
* If the morning temperature is above 36.8 ° C, you have hyperthyroidism.
This is when the thyroid gland works above normal. Most likely, there is some strong inflammatory process in the body. Ie. you have not been cured!
Remember that the procedure should be repeated at least three times in three different days.
If during this time the result does not fall into the “normal” repeat the procedure, and remember you should go for a consultation with an endocrinologist and to investigate the cause of the problems.
Anyway. If the deviation is low, and you have no strength to go to a doctor, try to solve the problem.
The main thing, which in this case – the right diet. You should take enough selenium, vitamin A, vitamin B and magnesium. All these minerals are essential for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
