Symptoms and illnesses associated with low temperature

Hypothermia as a pathway for illnesses

Hypothermia creates ideal conditions for a multitude of illnesses since it is associated with deficient circulation, a poor supply of nutrients and oxygen, but also decreased deacidification and detoxification.

Naturopathy has, for many years, applied this principle by using heat treatments and thermal measures to improve the body’s circulation.Despite its simplicity, this principle is regrettably often neglected.

Who has the time, these days, to crawl into bed with a cup of tea and a scarf around one’s neck to fully cure a cold?



The far-reaching consequences of low body temperature will be addressed in the next chapters. It will become clear that low temperature is not a trivial matter, but a serious and consequential deficiency.

A lack of body heat means a lack of vitality and joy. Besides addressing health disorders and the causes of low temperature, which often go back many years, appropriate measures to bring the body temperature back into the optimal range will also be discussed.

The following is a list of symptoms and illnesses that are caused or favored by hypothermia:
