Fibromyalgia Introduction Series by Lotus Spring Acupuncture & Wellness Inc.
As temperature changes, the sensitivity levels within the body can really affect those diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Everybody knows that when someone has this type of temperature sensitivity with the weather changing, it can be a really awful experience for people. A lot of fibromyalgia patients can expect a flare-up or even a worsening of their current symptoms when the weather changes. In this article though we’re going to go over the main types of temperatures, and how they might be affecting you. Look out for our other article to come soon with more information on the secrets to finding solutions when overcoming this particular experience of symptoms.
To give a little bit of background, an alteration in temperature usually happens when atmospheric pressure is adjusted, and it typically occurs when the seasons change. As some patients have experienced this, they share that it is a feeling that might compare it to as if you’re burning up whenever you’re exposed to the heat and the intense feeling that you’ll never be able to cool down. It could even be when the cold chills you to the bone and you feel you can never warm up. You could even be going back and forth between cold and hot temperatures or flashes! Either way, your body is just plain out of sync with the actual temperature of the world.
The main types of temperatures include; Hot & Dry (Desert), Hot & Moist (Tropical), Cold & Dry (Artic Microbiome), and Cold & Moist (Temperate Rainforest Microbiome). Of course, this then affects the body through an immense amount of pain. This can affect the part of the nervous system which is responsible for controlling bodily functions not consciously “directed”, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes. It is also in charge of the brain and its sensors to relieve pain, fluctuate temperature, and even induce our brain’s activity through the “fight or flight” mode. Having an imbalance of these things can cause major problems when left unchecked.
Hot & Dry Temperatures (Desert)
If you live in a warm and dry climate, your internal microbiome usually has become too warm and dry itself. The human body responds to heat by increasing the circulation of blood and through sweating. Too much heat can lead to dehydration and dryness. It generally manifests with red eyes, thirst, and dark urine. It is also associated with skin rashes, lesions, and irritability. One of the key signs of heat overload is inflammations. The word inflammation literally means “on fire”.

Hot & Moist Temperatures (Tropical)
If you live in a moist and warm environment, and your internal Microbeam has become to trap call, what happens inside the body is what is called “damp fire” in Chinese medicine. When people have food retention, it leaves piles of debris behind. When your gut gets too moist and compact, it creates conditions similar to a compost fire. While people don’t tend to catch fire, they can get a low-grade fever and chronic inflammation that is associated with a host of chronic diseases.

Cold & Dry Temperatures (Artic)
In particular this is 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 out of your skin. This can cause several types of symptoms, which then affect your bodily functions and fibromyalgia intensity. The key signs that your experiencing this, can include; thirst, the skin, temperature, emotions, your lips, the mouth, your pulse, urine, stools, your tongue coating and color.

Cold & Moist (Temperate Rainforest)
This type of temperature sensitivity is based upon if you live in a moist and cool region or if your internal microbiome has become too moist and cool. There are certainly areas of the body that should be swampy, but when this extends in the areas which are meant to be dry, it creates problems. Sedentary living reduces fluid metabolism. This can lead to water retention. When the internal microbiome becomes cold and damp, it overloads your water transport mechanisms. Cool weather overall slows the collective metabolism. Some of the key areas that can be affected from cold dampness in the microbiome include; thirst, urine, stools, discharge, fungal infections, your skin, temperament, tongue color, and tongue shape. If you are experiencing any abnormal changes to these areas and want to know more details, please read our other article that will be linked below for solutions on how to combat this!
