How often do you take your temp throughout the day? Perhaps you've raised your temp, but not your set point?

2. Living with a metabolism perpetually switched to “sleeping” mode required greatly increased adrenal output to “sleep walk” through life. This increased my metabolism, so I needed less clothing than many other people.
3. To keep my heart from racing due to the adrenal hormones, my parasympathetic vagal system increased its out to slow my heart down to nearly normal rates
4. After half a century of this, my vagal system was no longer able to keep up with its demands, so it started going into exhaustion late in the day. This would leave my heart unprotected from the high level of adrenal hormones, so starting in the afternoon my vagal system would go into exhaustion, allowing my heart to race, and I would lose consciousness due to inadequate blood flow because my heart couldn’t operate that fast.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
