Dr. David Jernigan “Low body temperature can never be viewed as a normal or healthy condition.”

Our body temperature is proven to be affected by our emotions and stress level. Further, a decrease in body temperature is more likely to lead to depression or low moods. 


Dr. David Jernigan says, “Low body temperature can be a much more sinister condition. Where a fever can be viewed as an active developmental and corrective process of the healthy body, low body temperature can never be viewed as a normal or healthy condition[ …] The colder a body becomes, the slower the electrical oscillatory rate and therefore the thicker, more viscous, or syrupy the body fluids become. The more viscous the fluids become the more difficult it is for the body to push the fluids through the body. The lymph fluids that are normally supposed to bathe the outsides of all of your cells become progressively stagnant as it is too thick to move efficiently.”


Dr. David Jernigan adds that  “A low body temperature creates a happy home for viruses and chronic infections and is a sign of degeneration and gradual cellular death. The problem with a low core temperature is that no effective immune response can be mounted therefore no fever is generated and infections go undetected. The sickest person is one who gets the same infections but never misses a day of work because there is no response by their immune system, so they have a false sense of wellness as healthier individuals go through healthy fevers and immune responses that may cause them to miss work. 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.”

For those who have low body temperature, they are able to normalize their body temperatures by means of diet, regular exercise and sufficient sleep.

#Stress and body temperature 

When people go through severe mental stress, their bodies aim to conserve energy and consequently their body temperatures drop. The “conservation mode” helps people go through difficult circumstances. Normal temperatures help people sleep better and emotionally feel better too. Thus, when people feel depressed or stressful, their body temperatures are more likely to drop, and when their temperatures drop they are more likely to suffer from depression. Evidently, there’s a vicious circle.


According to Raison, hyperthermia has been used for many years, primarily in Europe, as part of a cancer-fighting regimen.


#Thyroid and Depression

There’s a strong connection between low thyroid and depression. Nevertheless, patients might have normal thyroid blood tests and still have low body temperatures and suffer from symptoms such as depression, weight gain, and chronic fatigue. Our metabolic rates are decidedly controlled by our thyroid systems.  In other words, a normal body temperature represents a normal metabolic rate. 


The metabolic rate refers to the rate at which we burn calories and use up our energy stores. Low body temperature usually accompanies low metabolic energy. The control center for body temperature lies in the brain and it is known as the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is alerted to extreme temperature by means of reducing or opening blood flow.

Stress interferes with our body temperature regulation and relates to the heart’s emotional center and hypothalamus. Changes in hand/foot temperature are a reflection of blood flow, which can be utilized to measure a person’s stress level and stress response. For example, talking about upsetting disturbing events can make our temperature drop and recalling heartwarming memories help our body temperature increase up to 10 %. And changes of 5- 10 degrees can occur within just a few minutes. In other words, warmer hands/feet indicate physical relaxation while cold hands/feet reflect tension or high stress.  When our body’s flight system is activated, the muscles get tense and our heart rate and the vital organs speed up.


Evidently, every thought and emotion inside our mind affects our energy level and stress level. Our body needs the energy to keep itself warm. When the body does not have enough energy to function properly, the body gets malfunction in its own way. For instance, if a persons’ brain has too little energy, his memory capability will be affected and suffer from the difficulty of concentration. Also, studies also found a strong connection between depression and memory loss. 

The medial orbitofrontal cortex in the brain is involved in the regulation of mood. This area of the brain responds to pleasant sounds, smells, images, tastes and other stimuli. Lowry says depression is associated with over-activity of the brain’s default-mode network, which occurs when a person is ruminating.


I suppose our brain might get exhausted if there is too much negative energy and it gets maladaptive or slightly unfunctional. Also, studies found our negative emotions does highly affect our blood sugar level and inflammation level. 


Researchers led by Dr. Charles Raison of the University of Wisconsin-Madison conducted found that raising our body temperature proves to be a natural treatment for depression symptoms. Raison found that “using heat to stimulate the skin activates serotonin-producing cells in the mid-brain, which then produces a change in how the brain functions. In a way, one might think of this pathway from the skin to the brain as a deep-brain stimulator crafted by evolution. We tap into this pathway because heat makes the brain feel happy.” Co-author Christopher Lowry, associate professor of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado-Boulder,  assserts “We know that warming the skin activates areas of the brain where activity is low in depressed patients.”

Inspirational Quotes from ‘The Little Prince’“It is lonely when you’re among people too.”



Countless people feel they are badly rewarded by God. Most people stigmatize their life troubles because they know nothing about “God’s discipline” in the Bible (Hebrews 12:11). It takes time to figure out the blessings in life. God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you. According to the Bible, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (NRSV, Mark 10:23-27). Because those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). As an editor, I tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public.
