What I've read so far is that the expresso is meant to kick-start your adrenals.What does the espresso do?
Richfield doesn't recommend meds for everyone. When he starts to work with someone to raise their temp, he assesses the procedure they should take based on the results of a "shower test". Not everyone need to take meds.Do you have access to any t3 Meds? Does he think one can be successful without them?
I've read more now, and he recommends T2 or T3, with maybe tiny doses of T4. He references T3 more, but then he says that:
Regarding T4:At present, I am partial to T2, both because it is non-prescription, and because the body adapts to it less than with T3 or T4, so it will be easier to taper off of when the time comes.
I'm sure I can source some: they may be readily available in Poland (I used to buy Melatonin there). My mum is going there today so I can ask her to check.T4 can actually DEPRESS temperatures and INCREASE adrenal requirements, so it should never be taken until AFTER you pop up to 98.6oF in the morning, and then it should only be taken in small doses.
Diet is one area he doesn't seem focused on. It seems in this regard he's a proponent of self-experimentation: eg. recommends testing your own urine with test strips while varying your diet to see what the impact is.Does he say anything about a certain diet?
The English woman whose site I referenced talks about the diet she's on: Diet - Normal Body Temperature
It's basically low carb Primal, except she eats bread for breakfast. Meat, dairy, no fruit juices, no sugar. But I'm not sure if that's a diet that Richfield recommended.
Interestingly - she doesn't eat starch. In an N=1 during the course of resetting she discovered that starch (in the form of rice) effected her getting her body temp back up.
Thanks for the tip! Ran out of oil recently and haven't replaced, but I've been eating a shit-ton of coconut milk lately.I suggest you add more coconut oil to your diet to be used as a thermogenic. Spread 2-4 Tbs throughout the day.
I'm making my way now through these other articles he's written: FixLowBodyTemp.com Library
There are two there about cancer, which you may find interesting.
