Are you always wondering why do I always feel cold and nothing you do provides relief? If so then today you will get the 3 major reasons for feeling this way. I assure you that if you suffer from constantly cold hands & feet that one of these 3 and possibly all 3 could be the cause for your problems.
The Top 3 Reasons for Always Feeling Cold!
Hypothyroidism (Slow Thyroid) – A large majority of women suffer from weakened thyroid function. Quite often this can result in many symptoms which can include an overall cold body temperature, difficulty losing weight with weight gain in addition to chronic fatigue. Although Men are also at risk, women are the most common to suffer from this. I suggest increasing iodine in the diet to help easily counteract this, the best sources for iodine will come from sea vegetables (seaweed) such as wakame, kombu and dulse.
Low Blood Iron – A very common cause of cold hands and feet in addition to dark circles under the eyes as well as fatigue. Again women are at the greatest risk for suffering from this condition due to their monthly blood loss. Athletes are also vulnerable, and vegetarians are constantly suffering from this condition unless they are constantly on top of eating great vegetarian sources of iron. The quickest solution is an iron supplement. Liquid forms are far better, however if iron isn’t your problem, then the last thing you want to do is over consume it especially because excess iron feeds the next cause of always feeling cold.
Candida Overgrowth – Lastly and most importantly is a candida overgrowth. What is candida you ask? It’s a yeast that lives within all of us. In many of us it will actually change form into an aggressive fungal form. The trigger for this mutation is many things, but most commonly its caused by anti-biotic/prescription drug use in addition to a diet high in refined foods, specifically sugar. This fungus affects an estimated 80% of the population in varying levels and has a symptom list longer than just about any other condition.
Some people experience severe digestive problems, fatigue, poor circulation which includes cold hands and feet, dizzy spells, a weakened immune system, chronic allergies & infections, depression, anxiety, brain fog and the list goes on and on.
My suggestion is that if you feel cold all the time and don’t know why, take a quick online candida test or survey to help determine if candida appears to be the cause of your health problems.
