low body temperature

If hypothyroidism is ruled out, what are some other possibilities to check for low temp - 95 degrees in the morning, sometimes not getting above 96 in heat of day in South Florida? I have had internal bleeding problems for some time and conventional doctors say it is unrelated to lower temps.

Temperatures that low are usually not caused by hypothyroidism, or at least not by hypothyroidism alone. To drop to 95 consistently requires a chronic infection, usually associated with heavy metal toxicity. While the chronic infection can be anywhere, since you evidently have not suspected that, it is probably hidden in the gut wall. The most common syndrome I see in my office is: (1) hypothermia, (2) fatigue, (3) plentiful dental amalgam, and (4) poor digestion, usually with bloating and/or constipation. Unfortunately, if you take this to a mainstream doc, you will be told you are fine, go home, and quit being narcissistic. This syndrome and the treatment for it is outlined here: The most common cause of bleeding is platelet inadequacy which is a common side effect of a disabled gut wall since the nutrition needed to make good platelets is lacking.
