Heavy Metal Toxicity and Low Body Temperature



Heavy Metal Toxicity and Low Body Temperature

Heavy metals are one of the primary causes of low body temperature and immune system depression. Many microbes cannot be brought back under control until the heavy metals have been removed from the body. High and low-level infections can be ongoing for decades in spite of high dose antibiotics and intravenous antimicrobials when heavy metals are present. Heavy metals promote the over-acidic, low oxygen, low temperature environment which microbes thrive in.

The term heavy metals refers to the over-accumulation of many different types of metals in the fat cells, central nervous system (brain, brainstem, spinal cord), bones, glands, or hair. Heavy metals may include mercury, lead, cadmium, palladium, platinum, arsenic, and nickel, just to name a few.

Of interest concerning low body temperature are the metals palladium and platinum. Researchers from Notre Dame University and Wichita State University, in the most detailed study of its kind, found that the catalytic converters in automobiles are spewing out palladium and platinum in the exhaust fumes.[i] It is now understood that we are driving through an invisible cloud of these metals and are breathing them into our lungs; we are also potentially consuming them in our foods as these clouds of metal are known to deposit up to 150 feet on either side of the roadways. Crops, farm animals, and even your kitchen and home are constantly being poisoned by the fallout of these metals.  

Interestingly, palladium is known as “The Depressive Metal,” since it is known to cause depression in people. It is also known to cause overcooling of the body. Now consider what maladies are plaguing most of America -- depression and low body temperature. Coincidence, or good science? 

A story was published in a recent edition of Environmental Science and Technology, reporting that roadside platinum is an allergen that aggravates asthma sufferers and causes other respiratory difficulties.[ii] Platinum toxicity has also been associated with cancer and birth defects.[iii]
We must change the body’s internal environment so that it is not a happy home for microbes. Heavy metals play a large role in setting you up for chronic and repeated infections. The effects of all the various heavy metals cannot be addressed completely in this book, but you can see that the detoxification of the body is a an ongoing chore. We live in an incredibly toxic environment. Even when you seemingly live a healthy lifestyle, toxins will remain an issue.

The problem with most efforts to detoxify the body, especially in someone with a low body temperature, is the fact that many of these heavy metal toxins are deposited deep within the body tissues. These deep tissues are cold, rigid, and many times too solidified for even the most clever detoxification medicines and therapies to reach. This is difficult for many people to comprehend, but consider how a body with poor lymphatic fluid movement and poor circulation cannot effectively deliver the detoxifying medicines to the various areas of the body. 

In order to effectively detoxify the body, it stands to reason that the doctor and healthcare team must address the low body temperature. Restoring the normal body temperature will then restore the normal liquid-fluid flow dynamics that would allow the detoxification medicines to reach and remove the metals and toxins.
Another primary source of heavy metal toxicity is the dental material, primarily mercury, used for the last 100+ years, which is used in many “silver amalgams.” These amalgam fillings were so controversial when first introduced in the late 1800’s that it split the only dental association of the time, the National Association of Dental Surgeons, into two groups. One group said no one should ever use mercury in the mouth because it is so very toxic and is known to leach out over time, poisoning the body. The other group of dentists liked how easy it was to work with and how inexpensive mercury amalgams were. In the 1800’s, gold was the otherwise preferred dental filling material. The two factions debated the issue until a new dental association was born, the American Dental Association (ADA), our present-day leading dental association, which you see approving most grocery store brand toothpastes. It was the ADA who approved of the mercury fillings, which became the norm of our society. 

Of historical interest, the first use of the name “Quack” when referring to a questionable doctor was used to label these dentists using mercury, since mercury was then known as “Quacksilver.” Today it is estimated that millions of mercury amalgams are placed in teeth every year in the U.S. alone. One can only marvel at the power and influence various associations in our country have over our standard of living, especially when considering that doctors and dentists have been persecuted and prosecuted, sometimes losing their license to practice in the U.S., for attempting to spread the word about these issues and relieve suffering through the removal of amalgams. Recent legislation has been proposed to outlaw the use of mercury in amalgams.
Some countries, such as Sweden, have banned the use of mercury and will even pay up to 50% of the cost to have it removed from its citizens, stating that the cost of removal is cheaper than paying for the long-term chronic illnesses as the result of these amalgams.[iv]  (On a related dental note, many European countries do not allow the use of fluoride in water and toothpaste due to limited benefit and excessive health complications.)

Mercury is 1000 times more toxic than lead, while the methyl-mercury vapor coming off of fillings during chewing is 100 times more toxic than elemental mercury. 
These “silver amalgams” actually contain up to 50% mercury by weight, 35% silver, 13% tin, 2% copper, and a trace amount of zinc.[v]
German research has shown that mercury from a pregnant mother’s amalgams are directly related to high levels of mercury in their fetuses.[vi] I have seen many toothless patients who use only dentures and are incredulous that they have heavy metal toxicity still from old amalgams long removed. The teeth were likely removed due to long-term degenerative changes in teeth that were full of amalgams, crowns, root canals, and bridges, all of which were releasing various metals into the bones and tissues of the jaws, and indeed the entire body. Dr. Stephan Edelson, M.D., medical director of the Environmental and Preventative Health Center of Atlanta, Georgia, explains that, “mercury vapor (methyl-mercury) is readily absorbed into the blood because of its solubility in blood lipids (fatty molecules). This process contributes to between 80 and 100% absorption through the lungs from which the mercury is then carried to virtually every tissue of the body, including the brain."[vii] Therefore, the burden all of those years of metals leaching from the teeth and from other sources are not relieved by simply removing the teeth. You must understand that it is no simple matter to detoxify the body of heavy metals.

Miraculous Diagnostic Machine! Part 3

(Read parts 1 and 2 blog posts first)

How do I know healing doesn’t require the Miraculous Medical Diagnostic Machine?

Because of all the successes we get to see that ultimately have little to do with the label or name we call an illness.

American Biological Medicine, like we teach and practice at the Hansa Center, is the most scientific and comprehensive philosophy of healing.

Health from a bottle is a myth!

True remedies/medicines work to restore the body's own restorative, healing functions to occur. True healing never involves masking the symptoms, since that would defeat the point of truly healing!

The world’s most astute and celebrated physicians cannot heal even the most simple paper cut, much less serious illnesses like cancer, heart disease, and depression. Neither can I or anyone else at the Hansa Center. Healing is a function of the body, not some drug! In true healing, a person does not need to continue taking a medicine for the rest of their life in order to remain symptoms free...unless they have damaged their body beyond repair, in which case you now must take whatever you can to improve the quality of your life. However, before you get to the point where your body cannot be repaired, you must seek out health care that works to help your body truly heal, not just mask the symptoms.

So if we truly cannot heal anyone then our job and specialty must be to identify anything interfering with the body’s own ability to heal, facilitate the restoration of the functional integrity within the body, mind, and spirit, and provide the building blocks and bio-information the body needs so all the things that the Miraculous Medical Diagnostic Machine found will naturally be corrected.

If one continues to do the same things, one will continue to get the same results or worse! The rule is...the better it gets the better it gets. By changing what you do to care for your body for the better, the better your body will be able to function better.

If everything you have done up to this point has created your present reality, then if you want a new reality, one with optimum health, then you must change everything you are doing.

Optimum Health is the product of living with the highest degree of functional integrity within the body, mind, and spirit. Optimum health is also the ability of the body, mind, and spirit to adapt instantly and correctly to any changes in its internal and external environment.

Healing is the product of guiding and facilitating the restoration of integrity of the body, mind, and spirit through thoughtfully applied physical treatments, natural medicines, therapies, and through teaching and coaching one back to optimum health and healthy lifestyle choices.

We encourage you to tell everyone you know that is sick to come experience American Biological Medicine at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health.

While we cannot guarantee results, the pure philosophy of healing and broad range of natural science and healing techniques that we can bring to bear on a case insure that there is no type of illness and no one who will not benefit from American Biological Medicine. One thing I can guarantee you is that the pharmaceutical drugs most often only seek to cover up the symptoms, and that will never result in true health...only the illusion of health. Share

Miraculous Diagnostic Machine, Part 2

(If you haven't read the first post, scroll below and do so before continuing.)

As I left off last time:
I can’t tell you how many people have come for treatment that ultimately came in saying ........
“Well doctor, I poured the pills down the toilet today!” “What pills?” I ask. “Oh, I wasn’t going to continue living if you couldn’t fix me, so thank you for helping me!”

While knowing what going wrong in a person’s body is useful, it is my experience that rarely can a person’s illness be boiled down to one cause and rarer still boiled down to one magic prescription.

The “Miraculous Medical Diagnostic Machine” doesn’t really exist, although the myriad of blood tests and MRI’s and fancy diagnostics obviously do exist. These tests and the volumes of medical research describing what goes wrong during every illness lead one to feel quite convinced that mainstream conventional pharmaceuticals, surgery, and radiation treatments are the logical way to get the quality of life back that we seek.

It seems that acceptance of a broken system has become the norm in the world!

Women look at every other woman having severe PMS and think this dysfunction is now the norm, when it is actually a sign of dysfunction.

The millions of people on antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, insomnia and cholesterol-lowering medicines seem to also think they are so blessed to have pharmaceutical drugs that they will need to take for the rest of their life.

Like sheep to the slaughter, much of our country has accepted that depending upon symptom-masking drugs is acceptable and is now the norm. It is viewed much like gray hair and wrinkles…it is inevitable that we all will need some sort of drugs as we age.

This is a lie that I feel must be revealed.

When we help people at the Hansa Center our goal is to facilitate true healing through facilitating the restoration of optimum health and integrity within every aspect of the body, mind, and spirit.

The ultimate goal is NOT to switch a person from a lifetime of pharmaceuticals to a lifetime of natural supplements.

Our goal is to get a person to the point, as quickly as possibe, where they don’t need to take anything natural or otherwise in order to live a joy-filled, healthy life.

A secondary goal, but equally important is for us to teach our patients is how not to get in trouble in the first place!

If you have to keep taking something (natural or pharmaceutical) in order to feel good or be symptom-free, then it is not fixing anything! It is masking the symptom only, and it might as well be magic potions, since if you take the pills away the reality is evident. Not only do you still have your original problem, but it has grown worse underneath the pills!

The idea that the human condition can be broken down into biochemical markers and genetic flaws on blood tests is flawed and only works to support a flawed system of dependency upon drugs and “Cookbook Doctoring.”

Miraculous Diagnostic Machine Part 1

What if a medical diagnostic machine was created that would replace every single lab test and every type of other diagnostic device? What if it could generate reports that could tell you with incredible accuracy every biochemical malfunction? Every microbe would be identified and every toxin revealed using this new machine.

The diagnostic machine would then print out reams of data revealing the minutia of imbalances and items which are outside the statistical norm of the average American. With this machine we could finally see all the hundreds of thousands of problems that need fixing in a person who is sick.

The problem with this "miraculous diagnostic machine" is that although it would show all of the problems it could not reveal how the doctor should go about restoring everything that is wrong. The true reality is that the shear wonder of all feats is how the body deals with an incredible amount of problem situations every moment of every day. Millions, upon millions of potential challenges are dealt with every second.

One begins to see how that true health and true healing is indeed a function of the body, in its totality, not just this or that nutritional deficiency, or this or that microbe that has gotten out of the control mechanisms of the body.

I am a great fan of the television sitcom, “House, M.D.” I know several doctors who also like to watch it. The program is fun to watch as a doctor because it allows us to flex our own diagnostic mind to try and solve the case before Dr. House. However as I watched more episodes a worrisome pattern began to emerge that I couldn’t quite put my finger on for awhile. You know what I mean, that nagging feeling you get when something just isn’t matching up to what you hold to be true.

Now, you may be wondering why I am shifting topics from our “fantastic new diagnostic machine” to House, M.D., however it will be clear shortly.

The thing that eventually just didn’t work for me about House is that it seems that the program celebrates and is selling the idea that with more and more diagnostic tests the patient’s problem can almost always be boiled down to one specific thing. Since the program is an hour long then once that one problem is identified they can deliver the perfect medicine for that problem and patient is gloriously well.

For almost 20 years, the Hansa Center has been treating some of the toughest, chronic cases of all kinds from all over the world, much like the patient’s on the T.V. show House, who for those of you who don’t watch it, treats with a team of doctors, only the most baffling cases in a hospital.

Approximately 90% of our patients have already seen over 20 different doctors and specialists, both natural and conventional medicine, many coming from our country’s most prestigious hospitals, before coming to see us.

We often “rock and roll” with these cases and enjoy great success at improving these cases which no doctor previously could even budge. So, I feel very qualified to question the direction that medicine is taking us.

Do we win every case? No, however we have won many. We have been able to improve the quality of life and often dramatically reduce the severity of a person’s symptoms, something that usually twenty or more other doctors had not been able to perform.

At the Hansa Center we recognize that while it is good knowing some of the minutia of problems within the body, when it comes down to healing, we must treat to restore that which truly controls health and healing...the entirety of the human body.  From this stance, we never treat named diseases, although our doctors are very well trained in the many diseases that can affect a body. We work with the goal of restoring a person back to perfection.

We want a person to be able to get out of the wheelchair, but if all we achieve is better bladder control, the ability to hold up their own head without having to have it strapped to the wheelchair, to feed themselves, then to that patient our treatments were a great success and well worth it since most other efforts were simply to slow down the gradual worsening of their condition!

I can’t tell you how many people have come for treatment that ultimately came in saying ... Share

Updated Treatments for Chronic Low Body Temperature

Health Thought of the Day: The effects of a low body temperature (under 97.0F or 36.1C) are well documented in the medical physiology textbooks. All efforts should be made to secure 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. The laws of thermodynamics state that as you increase temperature, you necessarily increase energy.

You and your healthcare team must address your body from every direction and with every balancing tool available. You can never truly overcome this condition with pills. Therapies must engage and reactivate and stimulate the rhythmical, metabolic, and nerve/sense aspects of your body, addressing the body, mind, and spirit.

Other supporting therapies designed for restoring the rhythms of the body must be applied. These therapies might include color and sound therapy, hot and cold contrast therapy, life-activity planning, breathing and voice therapy, rhythmical massage therapy, curative movement therapies, and indeed every other treatment from your doctor will address in some way the rhythmical aspects of your body.

Low body temperature must be addressed to bring the body back to balance. The temperature must be elevated to end the dying process of the body and to help the body eliminate the cellular debris or the “sludge” in the body.

Testing and Treatment Recommendations:

· Temperature monitoring and graphing (upon awakening before getting out of bed, and between 8-10 pm after a 30 minute resting period) Your temp should be no lower than 97.6 in the morning before getting out of bed. You should be a degree warmer in the evening. If you are cooler in the evening then this too is a problem even if you are within normal temperature ranges. If your oral or axillary temps are normal but your extremities are cold, this is a different problem, but can be helped with these recommendations.
· CRT (Computerized Regulation Thermodiagnostics) for identifying problem areas and tracking of progress.
· Definitely have your doctor do a complete Thyroid Profile, including thyroid antibodies, and Reverse T3. Also ask your doctor to do a 24-hour Saliva Cortisol/DHEA/Female and testosterone hormones test through DiagnosTechs Lab or Labrix. Address any findings with bio-identical hormones and glandular support, such as Cytozyme-AD for the cortisol (Each pill has 2.5 mg of bioidentical cortisol), and for the Thyroid support for Hypothyroid consider ThyroGold (bovine glandular)...definitely not Synthroid. For female hormone support I suggest bio-identical Sotto Pelle pellets over any creams, pills, or troches, the same for males needing testosterone support.
Core Warmth™ herbal formula (Hansa Healing Products, Inc.) to open all meridians and restore proper fluid dynamics and warmth regulation in the body.
· Use an Amethyst BioMat® from Richway, Inc. This provides detoxification and restoration of fluid viscosity and core body warmth through variable infrared heat and negatively-charged ions from amethyst crystals.
· Infrared Sauna Therapy…one of the most powerful tools you can have in your home! Detoxifies the body and restores circulation of blood and lymph (
· Natural-Bristle, Dry skin brushing morning and evening (Entire body)
· Detoxification Bath Therapy…4 cups Epson Salt 64oz. Hydrogen Peroxide 3% in warm bathtub. Soak for 20 minutes one bath per night before bedtime.
· Mustard foot bath (Hansa Healing Products, Inc.)… at least once per day, preferably in the morning or early afternoon.
· Solum Aesculus Massage Oil (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.)… This oil and essence is great for restoring the warmth organization of the body. They also are beneficial for chemical sensitivities, and those suffering from environmental and weather-change barometric-related sensitivities. The oil and essence are low odor products made by Uriel Pharmacy, Inc. This oil can be added to a bath for all over body application or be used as massage oil. May be applied as needed.
-Eliminate toxic personal care products, soaps, shampoo, laundry products..anything you would not eat, do not breathe, or put on your skin, or on your clothing.
· Chiropractic spinal, pelvic, and cranial alignments combined with specific homeopathic, nutritional, glandular, and myofascial support using Bio-Resonance Scanning™, or other body circuit balancing technique…as dictated by your healthcare professional.
-Our doctors use BRS to test all of the metabolic energy pathways to identify where the breakdown in energy production is occuring...including MTHFR and other genetic interferences, glycolysis, gluconeogenisis, increasing insulin sensitivity, and other biochemical imbalances need to be addressed that are preventing proper energy and thermal regulation. Mitochondrial problems are very common in chronic illnesses.
-Efficient digestion and gut function is essential. Unroasted, green coffee enemas can dramatically assist in liver and intestine cleansing. Consider Fecal Bacteriotherapy (Google it).
· PowerPlate®… work up to 20 minutes per day. (Or other movement therapies) You cannot be sedentary and expect your body to produce much energy or heat.
-Consider finding a doctor with PEMF therapy to increase cellular energy.
· Therapeutic Massage using various homeopathic and herbal ointments (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.) and therapeutic essential oils (Young Living Essential Oils company) (The massage therapists at the Hansa Center use the BioMats on the massage tables to facilitate the liquifying of gelatinous mucin in the tissues. Our all-inclusive treatment packages include daily therapeutic massages.)
· Dietary Changes… call the Hansa Center for Optimum Health (316-686-5900) for pamphlet on cooling foods and warming foods for restoring optimum body temperature. Eating only organic foods or as close to organic as possible will give your body not just great bioavailable nutrients, but will give your body more inherent energy than commercially grown foods. Intermittent fasting can free up much metabolic energy for healing instead of constantly diverting energy to digest food. (See archives on
· Reset the cross-wiring of the Limbic System using Dynamic Neural Retraining System (Google Annie Hopper's work).

As you can see, restoring the optimum core temperature is rarely as simple as saying, "Here, take this wonder-pill and call me in the morning." It takes work. It will likely take a few months to a year or more to fully repair the problems. Many of these treatments can be done at home at relatively low cost. Incorporate as many of these as you can. Check with your doctor before beginning any new therapy.

For more advanced conditions add the following:
· Prescription-only, daily injections of Homeopathic, Viscum Album (Uriel Pharmacy, Inc.) as directed by your Healthcare Professional.

Are your muscle tight and painful due to low body temperature?

Organ Circuits and low temperature

The body is set up with dedicated electrical circuits all of which are interdependent and interconnected. A circuit in the body has a specific organ, gland, teeth, muscle, and nerves. If anything goes wrong in one of these organ circuits the circuit energy goes down approximately 60% of normal.

The laws of thermodynamics state if we decrease energy we decrease temperature. Due to the interconnectedness of all the circuits, one circuit in the body cannot go down without ultimately affecting the whole.

Therefore, if the muscle is seizing up and becoming progressively rigid and solidified, what do you suppose the organ that is also on that same electrical circuit is doing? It is likely that to some degree it is also progressively seizing up and solidifying.

In the 50,000 miles of blood vessels, the cold thick blood is more difficult to flow through the veins and arteries. Arteriosclerosis, the progressive hardening of the arteries, and the clogging of the blood vessels is manifesting the exact same problem that is being experienced by every tissue in the too cold body.

Edema in the extremities is seen as the muscular walls of the blood vessels seize up and can no longer maintain tone and the fluids leaks out of the pores in the vessels.

I look at many older patients, and some not so old, who are experiencing all the signs and symptoms of death in the extremities. They are dying in their extremities first, from the feet and hands up to legs to the torso. To touch their feet is just like touching an icy, stiff, dead corpse. The foot is deathly whitish blue and etched in blue/black blood vessels from devitalized, stagnant blood.

The overcooling of peripheral blood returning from cold legs and feet causes depression of the temperature in the vital organs with slowing of metabolic processes, particularly in the brain and medullary centers. Cotran R.S., Kumar V., Robbins S.L., Robbin’s Pathological Basis of Disease 4th ed. 1989 pp501. Death occurs when a vital organ reaches the point of being too cold.

Your physician can name your disease, he can call it cancer, he can draw your blood and show you everything that is wrong with it, but he is simply describing the process I have just outlined. When the core temperature of the body is cold every organ, gland, and tissue is affected and becomes hypo-functional or may even become hyper, as in the case of hyperthyroidism, in a last ditch effort to compensate for the hypothermic condition of the body.

Learning from Dead People: Low body Temperature and Illness

Health Thought of the Day: If your body temperature is routinely below 97.0F (36.1C) you need to read this.

The ultimate body coldness is seen in death. When observing a corpse many clinical gems can be gleaned and correlated to degenerative states of human suffering. In death, the blood and lymph fluid of the body solidify and the body becomes stiff and cold.

In the same way many chronic cold illnesses such as, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, cancer, Lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes, and heart disease, we see that the body becomes progressively colder.

As the body cools, the electrical oscillations of the fluids in the body slow down and there is a shift in the body’s polarity which promotes infectious microbes and cancer.


We can see the same principle of what happens in the body by observing the same dynamics in a water molecule. When the electrical oscillations of a water molecule slows down it becomes a solid, ice, as we speed up a water molecule’s electrical oscillations it liquefies and ultimately becomes a vapor.

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, washing away the cellular debris become progressively stagnant as it is too thick to move efficiently.

Now, consider the fact that just like your skin is constantly dying and flaking off and being replaced, so it is that every cell in your body is in a constant state of dying and being replaced. Only now the cold, syrupy lymph fluid cannot wash the dead cellular debris away. As a result the body becomes a toxic waste dump!

The toxins of the body cannot be effectively eliminated and flushed out until they correct the liquidity (viscosity) issues, not just of the blood, which is extremely common, but in all of the various body fluids.

Stay tuned for many more posts on this topic, leading toward various treatment options.

Are You Cold All the Time? Dangers of Low Body Temp!

Health Thought of the Day: (Second in our series on the causes, ramifications, and possible treatments of the effects of having a low body temperature.)

Are you all bundled up to go to bed? Cold all the time? Much emphasis in conventional medicine is usually placed upon feverish conditions; however, a 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, 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.

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 miss a day of work because there is no response by their immunes 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.

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, not to mention setting you up for chronic illnesses.

Low Body Temperature and Chronic Fatigue (CFS) and Degenerative Diseases

There are many theories as to the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Some say it is the effects of heavy metal and chemical toxicity. Some say it is chronic infections, while others say it is the side-effects from vaccines and the use of suppressive medicines such as acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen, still others say it is dysregulated hormones or the effects of emotional trauma.

It is my opinion that everyone is correct in the same way as the proverbial three blind men describing an elephant from the head, tail, and the side are correct in each one’s description but only from his unique vantage point. However, in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there is one common overriding finding…low body temperature!

This post is the first of a series on the causes, ramifications, and possible treatment options of Low Body Temperature from whatever cause.

Almost EVERY person with type of chronic, degenerative illness has a low core temperature. Cancer, CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, ALS, Lyme disease, heart disease, diabetes, and so many more are what are known as Cold/Sclerotic illnesses. As a society, we have largely moved away from the inflammatory illness associated with fevers.

There are very predictable problems seen in people with low body temperature and the profound importance of restoring and maintaining normal core body temperature. This is true not just in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but in every degenerative disease of our day.

Your core body temperature is the temperature taken under the tongue or armpit (add a degree if using the armpit). When human physiology books refer to the “normal” core body temperature it is presented as a range sometimes listed between 97.0-99.0°F . Understand that the “Normal Range” for temperature or even the normal ranges in blood tests are based upon the average person of our day. That is why “normal” changes periodically, because as our average population continues to get sicker the normal ranges must be adjusted. So in this discussion I am speaking about what is an optimal core body temperature – 97.6-98.6°F.

You have a definite problem if you are often below 97.0°F. If this is you, stay tuned for many more posts on this topic. Many people will say that you can fix this easily with this that or the other treatment, but it is often a very difficult and stubborn issue to correct because it is most often a manifestation of all the other problems going on in your body...not just your thyroid.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Healing the Wounds

The goal of our treatments for people with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), is not to create amnesia, although many people would prefer never remembering their traumas. The goal is to break the pathological attachment to living a life that is skewed and altered by the new software that was set in motion by the trauma.

In PTSD your perceptions of life are preventing you from living in the moment you are in without your perceptions in that moment being interpreted by the

Often the mind of a person with PTSD works much like a jukebox. With the right stimulus/trigger, a button in the mind is pushed and out flops a record playing your sad song.

Candice Pert wrote and book called Molecules of Emotions and reported research that showed that every emotion causes the hypothalamus to secrete neuro peptides unique to the type of emotion your are experiencing. We become addicted to the type of emotional neuropeptides produced by our dominant emotions...which makes PTSD so difficult to break.

A person will literally go into withdrawal from their negative neuropeptides when they get into a very positive environment. Their hypothalamus will secrete neuropeptides unique to positive emotions and the person will almost certainly start creating drama and negativity around them in order to get their "fix" of the negative neuropeptides they are addicted to having.

Treatments must address the malware (Negative software programming from the traumas) on all levels of the body, mind, and spirit.

This is why at the Hansa Center we are not just addressing PTSD as a chemical imbalance, but have developed new treatment innovations, such as NeuroCardial Synchronization and NeuroPhotonic Therapy, to reach deep into the person where these stored memories live.

Listen to a radio program Dr. Jernigan gave discussing PTSD:

Who is the Ideal Doctor?

Health thought of the day: Did you know that no matter the diagnosis there are only four general ways a person can get sick? Chronic illness always affects a person in all four ways, yet most doctors only are addressing one of the ways.

Most doctors are trained to deal with only one way your body can experience dysfunction. If this is the case, and your doctor is only addressing one of the ways, then there is a high probability that you will only get so far in your quest for optimum health.

The four ways you can experience dysfunction are, 1) Structural problems, 2) Chemical problems, 3) Stress-related problems, and 4) Bio-energetic problems.

If a doctor is going to address all four ways they will need good ways to test in order to find the problems. The doctor will also need many ways to address the dysfunctions he finds.

Although our doctors cannot always undo what has been done to you, and are not miracle workers, it can be amazing what good results can happen when all four ways are being addressed all at the same time.

The real challenge and goal is to find ways to completely restore what is optimum in structure and function on all levels. This is made more difficult the more damaged and toxic the body already is from life choices, trauma, inherited issues, and the adverse effects previous years of drug treatments.

Our doctors are blessed trained and licensed to be able to address all four ways you can experience dysfunction, and in the State of Kansas our statutes read that we are licensed to manipulate or treat the any tissue in the human body by manual, mechanical, electrical, or any natural means, or by the use of physical means, physiotherapy (including light, heat, water or exercise), or by the use of foods, food concentrates, or food extract, and hygiene.

The ideal doctor is one who understands disease, but specializes in restoring what is optimal on all levels of human existence...from there dis-ease often falls away!

Transmitting Allergies Between People!

Health Thought for the Day: Much of our understanding of how chemical molecules, such as hormones and neurotransmitters, function is now being recognized as a matter of proximity (transmitting their influence and information via light and vibrations through the crystalline matrix of the body) rather than actual physical contact of the hormone in the classic “lock and key” explanation we have used for years.

In fact, research reported by James Oschman, PhD., in his book, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis, states that even the frequencies emitted by a person having an allergic reaction can trigger a spontaneous allergic reaction in another allergy-prone person. It is all vibration!

We are radiating and transmitting, as well as receiving all kinds of electromagnetic energies into and from the world around us.

Everything in the universe is simply our perception of vibrations. Light, sound, tastes, the chair you are sitting in, the shirt you are wearing, the apple you ate today, the thought you think -- all are just vibrations. Another way of talking about vibrations is to generically call them frequencies.

Let’s carry this a little further so that you can really grasp what a very important role your body, mind, emotions, and spirit play in promoting health or sickness. If you have a glass of deadly poison, it is poisonous to you because its vibration or frequency is so disruptive to the frequencies of your body.

In the same way, your thoughts are also frequencies. Negative, fearful thinking creates absolutely poisonous frequencies! Thoughts of love and joy are to your body like Miracle Grow is to plants and produce nutritious, healing frequencies that resonate through the DNA.

If you want better health, surround yourself with better frequencies.

Just Say NO to Herx Symptoms!

Since the 1990's I have been one of the first doctors to take a stand against using severe Herxheimer reactions as guide and indication of "good" treatment.

When a doctor uses a natural or pharmaceutical antibiotic to kill some Lyme spirochetes in a person, there is often a resultant Jarisch- Herxheimer reaction (Herx) -- a worsening of the patient’s symptoms in response to the increased release of bacterial die-off toxins. The toxins are deposited into the bloodstream and are circulated throughout the body.

These toxins damage tissues in the body and are one of the primary reasons that symptoms can persist even after the actual crisis of Lyme and coinfections are gone; the toxin-damage can remain as an irritant in the tissues for years.

In truth, a severe Herxheimer reaction is a sign of poor elimination pathway drainage, poor organ and tissue support. All efforts should be made by your doctor to avoid these severe herx reactions!

The body of most chronic Lyme sufferers is a toxic dump to start with; if the doctor does not get the pathways of elimination open and working, the body gets even more toxic when the bacteria begin to die and their toxins release.

Even with the most skillful treatment program a person might experience worsening of symptoms, however it is barbaric for a doctor to feel their job is just to administer antibiotics and let the chips fall where they may in the way of horrible herx reactions.

I have heard from many people that their LLMD told them at the beginning of their treatment to, "Expect to feel horrible for the first 5 years or more of treatment, after which you might start feeling better!"

The person with chronic Lyme disease has already suffered enough and does not need to go through a Herx just to prove they have Lyme disease!

In my opinion, it is unnecessary and unethical for a doctor to want and expect their patients to feel worse for years as an indication of good treatment. All it requires of them is to get more training, so they can do more than simply push antibiotics.

Just say NO to herx's!

When you are looking for an "LLMD," your first question to the doctor should be, "How will you know the treatment is working?" If they say, "I will know because you will start feeling worse, due to a Herx reaction," I would suggest you find a new doctor.

Insist on a better, whole body treatment plan!

The ideal doctor is not a specialist in diseases, but one who understands disease, yet specializes in restoring what is optimum.

Lyme Literate Medical Doctors Shifting Their Perspective.

I was at a Lyme conference with about 60 medical doctors. It was interesting to hear most, if not all of them, agree that prescription antibiotics are not a good long-term solution.

They were all looking to discontinue using antibiotics altogether, and were moving to natural medicine to find a better treatment philosophy and better solutions for their patients
. Unfortunately health care, and especially regarding the treatment of people with Lyme disease, is not a precise science

Truthfully, there may be a time where antibiotics are appropriate, such as at the early stages. The struggle is to know when to use them, when to stop, and when to not use them at all.

For all of mainstream medicine's reams of literature, high-tech hospitals, lab tests, and research, when it comes to actual treatment, options in their tool box is quite limited to drugs like antibiotics, that were never intended to be taken long term.

For instance, there are only a dozen at most of generally recognized prescription antibiotics in the arsenal of medicine. So once your doctor has tried the primary four antibiotics, then it becomes rotations and switching to I.V. antibiotics to essentially beat the body into the submission of remission...remission is a temporary pause of symptoms, meaning the disease will come back within weeks to months after discontinuing the antibiotics.

The doctors at this conference were aware that antibiotics will only kill up to 85% of the target bacteria, leaving the remaining 15% mutated, antibiotic-resistant, and potentially more virulent.

I have heard so many people say, "I would be happy for any remission!" However, the point of these health tips is to help open your mind to other possibilities, to open to the idea of actual health restoration instead of bombing the bacteria into more drug-resistant, shape-shifting nightmares of the
microbial world.

The medical doctors at the conference were forced to look for better options, by their own words, because of the poor record they were getting with massive amounts of antibiotics. These doctors looked to the natural medicine treatment philosophy because of the great results some of their patients were reporting from going to doctors who do not use antibiotics. 

Most doctors find a pharmaceutical or natural protocol they like and use it on everyone. Some get well and some don't. Even at the Hansa Center...some get well and some don't, however almost all make improvements that none of their previous doctor's treatments could achieve.
Antibiotic-induced remission almost always occurs after a long, horrible, herx-ridden battle, then months to years later the illness returns with a vengeance. The medical doctors at this conference said they could no longer subject their patients to that torture when people were often getting quicker and better results in the long-term using the healing philosophies of natural medicine.

No one thinks they will go through the horror of chemo-therapy for cancer and come out the other side a healthier person. No one can go through years of only antibiotic treatment and come out the other side healthier.

With proper guidance of a health care professional trained in natural medicine philosophy can often help you restore optimum so that you can come out the other side healthier than when you started.

POTS Caused by Underlying Lyme Disease!

The month of May is Lyme Disease Awareness month! A very common symptom of chronic Lyme disease is Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

It is fairly common for POTS patients to have a noticeable drop in blood pressure upon standing, but some POTS patients have no change or even an increase in blood pressure upon standing.

POTS patients often have hypovolemia (low blood volume) and high levels of plasma norepinephrine (from the adrenal glands) while standing, reflecting Autonomic Nervous System disregulation (dysautonomia) causing increased sympathetic nervous system activation.

Many POTS patients also experience fatigue, headaches, lightheadedness, heart palpitations, exercise intolerance, nausea, diminished concentration, tremulousness (shaking), syncope (fainting), coldness or pain in the extremeties, chest pain and shortness of breath.

The many heart and circulatory problems seen in POTS can be caused Lyme Endocarditis as a result of metabolic toxins produced by the spirochetes (bacteria) of Lyme. The primary toxin identified through clinical research is the accumulation of ammonia (NH3) in the heart, brain, and other infected tissues.

While eliminating the toxins and the bacteria can create a favorable environment for the body to be restored, the POTS symptoms often remain.

This Sunday, May 11th, I will be introducing and discussing the profound new innovation called NeuroCardial Synchronization™, that was developed at the Hansa Center to specifically address the heart and brain disturbances of POTS.

Lyme Disease; Like Having Termites in Your House!

May is Lyme Disease Awareness month! Having Lyme disease is much like having termites in the walls of your house. You can kill the termites (Lyme bacteria), with toxic chemicals (antibiotics), but it does nothing to repair the damage already done to the wood of your house (body), and now your house (body) will make you sicker from the poisons used to kill the termites.

Any stiff wind can further damage your now weakened house. Any new challenge to your dis-eased body will create symptoms.

Simply killing the bacteria, and even detoxing, while good, does nothing to repair the damage they and any aggressive treatments caused in your body.

People come to the Hansa Center from all over the world. They are damaged often in ways that can seem to be beyond repair from the illness, and the previous aggressive treatments.

At the Hansa Center, we do not specialize in the treatment of diseases, such as Lyme disease. We are never saying thus saith me you have Lyme bacteria and we are going to give you such and such remedy and kill the bugs for your body. We specialize in facilitating the restoration of what can be restored.

Our treatment philosophy goes way beyond simply "establishing balance" or "achieving homeostasis." When a person is chronically ill it is too late for homeostasis and balance...certain issues need to cranked up and specifically targeted.

We definitely do not represent here on Facebook, or anywhere else, that we can get everyone well, nor keep everyone well. We are not God, nor do we desire to play God. What we represent is what we believe is the most ideal way to facilitate the body's ability to heal and stay well, regardless of the diagnosis.

People will sometimes come to the Hansa Center for our initial two-week all-inclusive treatment package, having heard of remarkable, near-miraculous things that happen to many people, and are greatly disappointed when the leave not necessarily feeling better, or in the rare case...feeling worse. The people will then get on social media and slam the clinic and our philosophy, even though none of their previous doctors had been able to budge their case either. Nobody with Lyme disease, gets angry when their LLMD hasn't healed them with antibiotics in two years, much less two weeks!

I am not complaining here. I am striving to help everyone understand that it is not rational to base an opinion of a treatment program based on two weeks of treatment. It is not rational to think that years of illness can be reversed without ongoing care....and periodic visits to change up the treatments to keep up with the many changes that are taking place in response to the treatments.

Even a simple blister will take 4-6 weeks to completely heal to the point where you cannot see where it was...that is if you don't pick at it, get it infected, or aggravate it by doing the same activity that caused it in the first place, in which case it will take even longer to heal.

All of this to say, set realistic short term and long term goals to pace yourself in the journey toward better health.

You might be one who is blessed to see many symptoms dramatically fall away for good in the first two weeks, and yet there are some other symptoms that linger and are more stubborn. You might be one whose healing is more sluggish, but the conviction and hope that you will be well, as well as understanding that it may take a lot of time and effort will get you through.

My own wife was told by her LLMD before we met to "expect to feel horrible for at least five years, after which you might start feeling better!" I have heard variations of this from many thousands of people who have come to the Hansa Center.

Our doctors are seriously bummed out if our patients are not better in some way after every day of treatment! We don't get it every time, however we get it enough that we have learned to expect it.

What would you rather have, a doctor who sets the bar of expectation so low that he/she never really needs to perform, or one who sets the standard of expectation high and if he doesn't get it, just works that much harder to figure out your case?

We cannot make any guarantee except that we will do all we can to undo the damage and relieve the suffering to the best of our ability.

There is no arrogance in Biological Medicine, just the humbleness of knowing how limited all of us in health care are in the total scheme of things.

100% of our patients have exhausted all medical treatments. Almost 100% are chronically ill and no other doctor has been able to budge their case. Almost 100% of our patients have experienced the full gamut of huge amounts of antibiotics and show the damage, possibly permanent damage as a result. This damage may predispose them to recurrent infections and systemic problems to say the least.

Doing nothing is not a good option. Doing the same things that are not working is not a good option. Doing something different that just might make a profound difference without destroying any other part of your body in the process and giving that process a good chance to see if it will work, is always a good idea.

A Doctor's Journey From Illness to Health

My Story by Dr. David Jernigan

Through the years, thousands of people have come to my clinic, thousands more have read my books, and yet very few ever knew the health adversities I have personally experienced in my life. So few knew of these challenges I have faced because, after years of working on restoring my own body, mind, and spirit, I am blessed to enjoy virtually perfect health almost all the time now. The health problems I have weathered have been like signposts guiding me towards not only greater health, but also to greater maturity on all levels. As you read my story, I want you to know why I am so passionate to help all who come to the Hansa Center. It is because I have definitely “Been there, done that!” and have recovered near perfect health time after time…and so can you!

I grew up mostly healthy and doing hard work. In my late teens I cleared land, cutting trees for a housing development, and sometimes putting medium-sized trees under my arm and dragging them to a pile. Older men would shake their heads and say, “You really shouldn’t do that to your back.” But what did I care? At 6’7” tall, it felt good to be strong. Within a year, my back began to have periods of paralyzing pain.

I didn’t know “what I wanted to be when I grew up,” so I just did what sounded like fun until it wasn’t fun anymore. All of my fun involved very strenuous jobs. I worked on seven different riverboats on the Mississippi River, and I worked on oil rigs as a roustabout in the Gulf of Mexico for over a year; that is when my back really first gave me a wake-up call. I was flown by helicopter to a hospital, unable to stand or walk. It was to be the first of three times in my life where I didn’t know whether I would ever walk again. The last time, while in the U.S. Air Force, the doctors thought I had broken a bone in my back.

I smoked cigarettes throughout those 11 years “just socially.” I would not smoke in my house or car, and never when I was dating someone. I sometimes went weeks without a cigarette, so I never thought I was addicted…until I really tried to quit! In the midst of severe life stress, I began to develop difficult respiratory infections that ultimately led to two bouts of severe pneumonia, and doctors literally saved me at the brink of death.

I spent thirty days in a military hospital after a grueling surgery to remove benign tumors along my spine. This was followed by thirty days of drugs (morphine) to quell the post-surgical pain. It was 90 days after being released from the hospital before I could work out, which was made more difficult by the 45 pounds I gained in the previous three months of immobilization.

In the late 1990’s, Lyme Disease entered my life with chronic fatigue, brain fog, cognitive dysfunctions, joint pain, muscle pains and twitching, and the most disturbing symptoms – heart arrhythmias and palpitations. Fresh in my mind is the memory of lying in bed at night and feeling my heart seem to make huge rolling movements inside my chest. It would beat hard and erratic and then stop completely! I would reach up and feel the carotid artery in my neck and see if it really wasn’t beating—it wasn’t--and then it would race and flip around again. At one point, after facing many nights of wondering if this night I would die, I decided dying was not the worst thing that could happen. Not that I wanted to die, but after facing the possibility night after night, it just didn’t hold the fear it once did.

Other family members tested positive for having Lyme spirochetes as well, and one was so sick that he could barely get out of bed for months because of the severe pain and neuropathies. Later on, my oldest daughter’s legs became paralyzed from West Nile virus in her spine, thankfully to be ultimately miraculously healed!

I was thrown from my horse, breaking the same ribs that I had broken a few years before, while trekking through the jungle 1850 miles south of the Mexican border. From the horse incident I also fractured my pelvis, wrist, and suffered from whiplash. Six months of periodic literal screaming agony passed before natural medicine treatments completely restored me to no pain or even any symptom at all.

Do I understand some of what you are going through?


Do I know you can gain greater health than you had before?

Yes, I am living proof of the power of American Biological Medicine!

My life is dedicated to helping you achieve the same or better! Come let us help you today.
