His theory is that people with low temp are in a chronically stressed state, and are releasing adrenaline to elevate their body temp to a survivable level. He doesn't recommend this. His protocol is "resetting" your body temp so that you don't need to ejaculate stress hormones willy-nilly (haha). Once you do this, he believes your intelligence rises. So stress hormones ≠ higher intelligence according to him.

"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."
