The causes of hypothermia-The optical hypothalamus core

Another center for thermal regulation

Amongst the heat-regulating organs, the optical hypothalamus, in addition to the thyroid and adrenal glands, plays a significant role. The actual temperature is recognized with tremendous accuracy. Temperature measurements by heat and cold receptors in the skin are compared with the inner values and produce a response to either raise or lower the temperature. This can occur through the expansion or constriction of vessels, sweating, shivering etc.; the exact processes are not important at this time.

However, the possible reasons why the thermal regulation center cannot properly perform its function is greatly important for this discussion. In many cases, my examinations of people with a disturbed thermal balance revealed a blocked or contaminated thalamus core. Heavy metals are often the cause of contamination: lead, cadmium, palladium, platinum, mercury from amalgam, but also the other 10,000 environmental poisons to which we are exposed.
