My cold hands and feet (and my fingernails and the tip of my nose would go blue/purple!) were resolved when I cut wheat/gluten out of my diet.
I don’t know how/why that would be, but gluten seems to have some negative effect on my circulation, which I believe is why my extremities would be icy cold.
I had a thermogram done for screening of my breasts (I don’t do mamograms) and the thermographer commented on how icy cold my feet and hands were. Certain fingers were really cold! My follow up 4 months later (after cutting out wheat) showed fairly solid improvements, and I don’t find I need to drink hot tea constantly to stay warm, or wear 2 layers more than everyone else.
Ahh how wonderful, did you have a Candida overwrought too? well I have been doing gluten free too but only for two months 🙂 maybe I need to wait longer also San Francisco is cold this time of the year but honestly I shake some peoples’s hands and they are warm even outdoors lol I am jealous but very glad you are improving! be well friend…
Hi Toni8, I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I am still struggling with candida. I did wonderfully well at around the time I cut out gluten. I used oil of oregano and had massive die-off…I could barely move for about 3 days! But after that I felt fantastic for several months. Unfortunately, stress and life in general have got the better of me lately and I am having a flare-up again. I do eat a lot of fermented foods to keep my gut healthy, but I gave in and ate some sugary junk when stressed out at work, and now I’m back to craving sugar again in a big way. But after my last day of work tomorrow for 2 weeks, I plan to tackle it again…
Ah good luck with that, but at least now you posses the tools and knowledge to make yourself halthy again 🙂 best luck with that!!!
