This is geared toward if you live in a cold, dry region or if you’re internal microbiome has become cold and dry. The cold, dry air of the arctic causes life to slow to a crawl. What happens in this type of environment is life itself seems to escape with every breath. The air pulls water and heat from out of your skin. This can cause several types of symptoms. Overall, the slow decay and sparse plant life distribute to pour soil quality. Plantlife grows briefly in the summer and then must prepare for the icy hibernation of winter. Every animal in the environment must adapt. They insulate themselves in fat and bury underground to create warmer microclimates.

In the Arctic, people need to stay warm and moist. As northern people eat nutritional dense foods, it provides more metabolic heat. It creates a tropical greenhouse inside, serving as a climate barrier. Smokehouse is inside as can be found throughout the Arctic Circle from Scandinavia to Alaska. The saunas provide a climate barrier and also help people generate nitric oxide, which helps them to maintain got ballots. When people have free circulating nitric oxide, then cold exposure can stimulate their body to begin turning fed into heat and usable energy. Without developing nitric oxide production through hard physical work or saunas and having cold exposure, this rich diet can lead to gut dysbiosis, and fibromyalgia.

Some of the remedies that can be used and applied include; spices and root vegetables such as ginger, garlic, and salt. Apparently, meats from animals that come from cold climates or high altitudes, provide a special balance within your gut. Some examples can include reindeer, duck, seal, walrus, Jack, well, fatty and nutrient-dense foods, and other warming foods. However, there are also several plants that can be ingested to be able to help. These can include a diet of fewer fruits, an increase in leaks or radishes, and other warming plants.

Recipes for this type of sensitivity can be also found in the “the Fibro Bible” by Andrew Miles. Please note much of this information is provided from this resource.
