Cold Feet: Lack of O2, CO2, and Free Electrons in Cells
Causes of cold feet
Cold feet are usually caused by constriction of blood vessels and neurological factors related to function of nerve cells. Vasoconstriction has a simple explanation related to shortage of the most-potent-known vasodilator CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the arterial blood. Normal nerve function requires excess of free electrons or a slightly-negative-body voltage. However, since modern people are rarely grounded to Earth, they nearly always have a positive body voltage: usually a very large one.
Warning. Cold feet is a typical sign of presence of intestinal worms, such as flat worms, round warms and others. One needs to check this possible cause too.
Even when the official diagnosis is diabetes or hypothyroidism, the real cause of cold feet is hypocapnia. There are no studies that measured CO2 effects on circulation and O2 transport in feet. However, there are dozens of studies devoted to CO2 effects on the brain. The image on the right provides a clear picture, and in cases of cold feet, effects are exactly the same.
Cold feet meaning
Therefore, cold feet meaning is simple: you have low body- and brain-O2 content (nearly always less than 20 seconds) due to too heavy breathing at rest. Normal body oxygenation is about 40-50 seconds.
Cold feet are more common at night and after meals (due to more hyperventilation), while some people always have cold feet.
Natural remedies for cold feet
A simple breathing exercise to warm up cold feet was developed by Russian doctors and tested on thousands of their patients. Most people can experience improvement in 2-3 minutes. This exercise for cold feet can be found here: Warm up Cold Feet in 2-3 Min. However, some people require more efforts to warm up cold feet.
An additional powerful treatment is Earthing since getting free electrons from Earth helps blood vessels, improves nerve function, and decreases inflammation. A sea salt bath for cold feet is described on this page: How to ground yourself. This method works in about 20-30 minutes and is especially effective for people with severe problems due to cold feet, chronic inflammation, and other serious conditions.
Permanent solution for cold feet
If you achieve more than 35 seconds for body O2, your problems with cold feet will naturally disappear. Most people find nearly complete relief from cold feet with over 25 seconds for the body oxygen test. These are typical findings of Russian MDs teaching breathing retraining to their patients.
For solutions related to cold feet caused by worms, (in this case you are likely to lose weight in spite of normal eating), you need to contact your health care provider for lab tests and treatment options.
