I suffer from getting cold and staying cold.
Once I get a chill, I get cold to the bone and stay that way for quite some time.
Is there anything I can do to combat this situation, and could iodine deficiency be a cause?
Yes, iodine deficiency may be the cause of your extreme low body temperature.
I, too, was chilled to the bone for years.
I am happy to report that this numbing cold has lessened to a large degree. My normal body temperature was 96.8 for years. When I went to doctors and they took my temperature, they thought their thermometers were broken.
According to Dr. Brownstein, iodine supplemtation may either be the liquid's Lugols Iodine or the pill form called Iodoral.
I take 12.5 mg. of Iodoral 3 to 4 times a day. I am happy to report that my body temperature has now risen to a toasty 98 degrees.
This was not an overnight change. It has taken over 6 months of taking this supplementation, but it was worth.
You may find the products Iodoral and Lugols listed in the Store on the main page of this site. You may also take kelp which has a high iodine content. That is listed also.
Here is the link to the page about Lugols: Lugols Iodine
Let me know how this works for you.
