Hi Michelle,

Regarding iodine – I also thought I was getting plenty, but blood test results showed otherwise. I starting taking supplements, then more and more supplements, and the levels in my blood continued to drop. This went on for over six months and my symptoms got so bad I thought I was going to die. When I stopped drinking fluoridated water my iodine levels shot up from borderline severe deficiency to normal levels in a couple of weeks and symptoms started to resolve. When I stopped using fluoridated water for cooking and making up tea (boiling concentrates the fluoride), I felt better than I’ve ever felt in my life. Fluoride interferes with iodine uptake and was used in the past to treat hyperthyroidism – Google it ;)

However, this did not resolve my menstrual issues (irregular, PMS, heavy, cramping) which had to do with low progesterone. That took double doses of fermented cod liver oil. I fell pregnant within a few months. I think Matt is spot on with eating the food and reducing stress – eat the food to make progesterone, and reduce the stress that burns up the ingredients the body needs to make it.

I didn’t track temps back then so can’t help with that – but I can tell you that 4 months post-partum I’m around where you are at 36 degrees. Even though my temps haven’t come up (and have even gone down further), I’ve seen improvements in my health from just eating the food.

Good luck!
