In the latest issue of Fibromyalgia Solutions, Dr. David Jernigan discusses the link between low body temperature and fibromyalgia.

Wichita, KS, May 7, 2012 –(— Research conducted by Dr. Jernigan at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health, finds that low-body temperature is a common thread in patients with a Fibromyalgia diagnosis.

In the latest issue of Fibromyalgia solutions, Dr. Jernigan’s article “Fibromyalgia and Low Body Temperature discusses the impact that core body temperature has on health.

According to Dr. Jernigan, “Where a fever can be viewed as an active developmental and corrective process of the healthy body, a low body temperature can never be viewed as a normal or healthy condition, nor is it a mechanism for a learning or developmental process in the body. Low body temperature is the plague of the 21st century. People with low body temperature have a weak reaction to even the most ideal medicines and therapies. As the body’s core temperature decreases all cellular energy also decreases thereby leading to profound and chronic fatigue that is not relieved by sleep.”

Dr. Jernigan believes that until the causes of the lowered temperature are addressed and corrected, the best that can be hoped for is only temporary or mild improvement of symptoms and a gradual but steady overall decline in health.

“The body’s best chance at long-term healing increases in direct proportion to the restoration of normal body temperature. The effect of even the most perfectly selected medicines is limited by the available energy in the body to correctly utilize those medicines.” states Dr. Jernigan.
