Taking your BBT and Why
BBT (Basal Body Temperature) is the cheapest and easiest way you can keep tabs on your body. You do it yourself. After at least four hours sleep. Women – vaginally. Has to be. No use taking oral as it is not a true reading of what is happening within you. All through your cycle which also means when bleeding – just wash the thermometer out with cool water – and add a drop of ti tree or oil of Thieves if you like. . .
Men need to use an oral thermometer and pop it in rectally first thing they wake in the morning – as their BBT tells us how good their sperm is likely to be and also why they have all the health and wellness issues that they do – as for women.
Women have a cycle that means their temperature changes according to what part of the month it is and when pregnant – it should be up at 37 – 37.2/3 C all the time – optimal. It often is not and this is a lack of nutrients/rest – and the iodine and Vit D and fat and protein and minerals then becomes crucial (see hormonal mudmap). Women cycling are to be set at 36.6/7 C for the days from beginning of period (Day 1 is the first day) to ovulation – which should be day 13/14 . The temperature then has to drop as otherwise the sperm would die – so it falls optimally to 36.2/3 C. It then rises to 37.2/3 C and stays there till the day prior to bleeding/birth – when it falls again to the baseline of 36.6/7. This is a continual monthly up and down of two weeks up, and two weeks down – if the thyroid is working well.
In non cycling or menopausal women – the same BBT can chart why she is having such ‘hormonal’ problems – the thyroid is not being supported to support life well. Even though she may well be having hot flushes – her BBT is usually at least a degree under what it is used to be (36.6/7C first thing on the morning – vaginally).
Record it and you can get a charting device from www.fertilityfriend.com – as this is what I have been using in all my eBooks so you have a similar graphic to compare by. It is not likely that yours is perfect – as you are looking for reasons for not being well. What this does give you is the normal/well setting that you are aspiring to. Once the BBT/thyroid/adrenal function is repaired – menstrual/fertility/pregnancy/ health/menopausal symptoms will disappear. Being a woman is not supposed to be a trial – it is only when we do not have the right ingredients.
Listen to your own bodies data . .. (Except you may need to find a doctor to actually be thinking as the individual information is your story and most orthodox medicine just looks at the general – BUT when it is YOU that wants to get pregnant, or become well – it is totally your story.
Cancer versus wellness – is as simple as having a thyriod that works . .(Thus all of your body does)
Excerpt for Dr Sircus
Normally the rectal temperature or vaginal temperature is considered as the core temperature. The ideal core temperature is considered to be around 98.6° Degree Fahrenheit or 37° degree Celsius. However, this temperature is an average body temperature because the overall normal temperature varies from a minimum of 97.7° Fahrenheit (36.5° Celsius) to a maximum of almost 99.5° Fahrenheit (37.5° Celsius). Any temperature above or below this range is abnormal. Actually, the best time and way of establishing one’s basal body temperature is to take it first thing in the morning before getting out of bed.
Dr. David Jernigan says, “Much emphasis in conventional medicine is usually placed upon feverish conditions; however, a low body temperature can be a much more sinister condition. Where a fever can be viewed as an active developmental and corrective process of the healthy body, a low body temperature can never be viewed as a normal or healthy condition, nor is it a mechanism for a learning or developmental process in the body. The colder a body becomes, the slower the electrical oscillatory rate and therefore the thicker, more viscous, or syrupy the body fluids become. The more viscous the fluids become the more difficult it is for the body to push the fluids through the body. The lymph fluids that are normally supposed to bathe the outsides of all of your cells become progressively stagnant as it is too thick to move efficiently.”
The colder we get the happier viruses, bacteria and fungus are. Cancer loves cold conditions and dies when things get too hot. The problem with clearing cancer cells, which are always occurring somewhere in the body, even under normal conditions, is that there is no effective immune response when we are too cold. In general, when we are iodine and thyroid deficient it is hard for the body to generate a fever so chronic infections go undetected and cancer goes forward until we are in a desperate condition.
Extreme cold is a dangerous situation that can bring on health emergencies in susceptible people. Cold is a known source of disease and death. Chinese medicine for thousands of years recognized cold as a principle cause of disease. Cold can be either an internal condition due to iodine deficiency and thyroid dysfunction or it can be exposure to cold. Either way it is important to understand and treat cold body conditions.
The easiest, safest and most effective way of treating most disease, including cancer, is to increase body temperature with infrared therapy and to supplement with plenty of iodine. Both are foundational treatments, which have profound ramifications for thyroid sufferers, patients with adrenal issues and even for people with restless leg syndrome. Doctors waste a lot of their time and patients money administering other treatments, which cannot work as long as core body temperature is not raised.
98,6° F is the ideal body temperature for optimal health. That temperature is the guarantor for good blood circulation and is the mainstay for vitality and strong immune system strength. Low temperatures between 94.1°- 96,8° F is common with most patients with chronic illnesses. It is not too difficult to deduct that a cold person is an ill person.
Cancer tumors grow faster when the body temperature is low. Germany’s bestselling author Uwe Karstädt new book 98,6° F – Ideal Body temperature for Optimal Health offers a wealth of knowledge and a cut through method of maintaining health or returning to it once we have succumbed to low body temperature and chronic disease. According to the author, low temperature is a plague of the 21st century.
“Coldness in the body is much more than a bothersome and inconvenient symptom. Coldness makes us sick. This coldness, which causes such enormous discomfort in the majority of my patients, is not a trivial matter. A sufficient body temperature is more than just a cozy and pleasant feeling. Proper body heat is one of the fundamental pillars of good health. Warmth within the body is like the sun for our life here on earth. 98.6° is an indication of vibrant health, strength and vitality. We are “hot,” full of glowing love when we reproduce; the Grim Reaper, however, takes our life from us with an icy hand. The summer of life is warm and vibrant while winter silences life, burying it under snow and ice,” writes Karstädt.
When we look at the fact that lower body temperature decreases enzyme activity, we can appreciate how important it is medically speaking to maintain optimal body heat. “Give me fever and I can cure every disease,” said Hippocrates 2,500 years ago.
