Temperature regulation is one of the most important jobs of the thyroid gland. The body temperature you have after waking up is indicative of your overall health and your body’s ability to maintain a stable temperature. This discovery was made by Dr. Broda Barnes.
Checking your thyroid level with your temperature is an easy way to monitor your thyroid without suffering the side effects of other testing methods. Just follow these easy steps.
1. Get a thermometer ready before you go to bed at night. Shake well and ensure that it is set to 35°. Put it next to your bed so it is ready for use in the morning.
2. Immediately upon waking up in the morning, take the thermometer and put it firmly under your armpit. Hold it in place for 10 minutes.
3. After 10 minutes, remove the thermometer and check the reading. Write it down. The temperature should be between 36.5° and 36.8°. Note that fluctuations may occur for women who have regular menstrual cycles.
If your temperature is less than 36.5, you may have an underactive thyroid gland. If your temperature is higher than 36.8, your thyroid may be working too hard.
Check your temperature three days in a row to see if your temperature is consistent.
