Cold Hands and Feet: Causes of Cold Extremities and Remedies
hands and cold feet are very common in modern people for the reasons
that are explained below. This symptom can often occur during night-time sleep for a
very simple reason: people have reduced O2 levels in body
cells. What is the meaning of this symptom? Cold feet
and cold hands are a sign of insufficient blood flow (poor
circulation) and reduced oxygen supply to body cells and their cold extremities.
Coldness in feet due to parasites
Warning. Coldness in feet can be caused by presence of GI parasites, such as flat worms, round warms and some others. This effect is described on another page of this site here: cold feet.
What is the main physiological meaning of cold feet and hands? In his article,
"Hyperventilation and anxiety state" that was published in the Journal of Royal Society
of Medicine, Professor Lum stated that cold extremities are a classical symptom
of chronic hyperventilation or breathing more than the medical norm. Cold feet and hands mean that the person has
less than 20 s for the body-oxygen test. While the official diagnoses can be
Raynaud disease or diabetes, in reality, all these people suffer from too heavy
The graph below is based on 24 medical articles. It explains why problems with poor
circulation and cold hands and feet are very common in modern
people, and why cold extremities were not common during first decades of 20th

Hyperventilation reduces CO2 in the lungs. This causes lowered arterial CO2 pressure resulting in
constriction of arteries and arterioles or vasoconstriction or decreased circulation since CO2 is the most potent vasodilator
(see studies below). In addition, low CO2 leads to the reduced Bohr effect (less
O2 is released in tissues by red blood cells). As a result, people suffer from
having cold extremities.
All vital organs of the human body and extremities get reduced blood and
O2 supply. Most people get only cold feet. But there are also millions of people
who suffer from cold hands as well.
If you try voluntary hyperventilation, in 1 minute your
brain oxygen levels will be about two times less and, in 2-3 minutes, most people
can faint due to critically low brain-O2 content.
Natural remedies for cold feet and colder hands
You can use a simple breathing exercise developed by over 170 Russian doctors who
taught the Buteyko breathing technique to thousands of their
patients with cold hands and feet. This exercise can be found here:
Warm up your cold extremities.
According to reports of these doctors, over 80% of people are able to get warm
hands and feet in 2-3 minutes even at night and before sleep.
An additional powerful treatment that helps with body O2 and circulation is
Earthing since getting electrons from the Earth helps blood vessels and decreases
inflammation. A sea salt bath for colder feet can be found on this
page How to ground yourself. It is
a great solution to normalize voltage of the human body and improve circulation.
Earthing also increases body-oxygen content.
Permanent cure for colder feet and colder extremities
If you normalize your automatic or unconscious breathing patterns,
your chronic problems with signs of poor circulation and cold hands and
feet will naturally disappear. Find the exact number (goal and

Very cold feet can be caused by worms and other digestive parasites (such
as Blastocystis Hominis). If you eat too much, and still lose weight,
contact your MD or GP for lab tests and treatment options.
