Could it be we’ve been taking our temperatures wrong all this time? Jason’s guest Dr. Wade Webster says while traditional mercury based thermometers are capable of reading our bodies correct core temperature, we would need to keep the thermometer continually inserted for ten minutes or more. His company Prima-Temp is creating options for capsulized internal thermometers which one day may be fueled by the human body itself. A notifier would be sent to a mobile device so the user will know exactly what their core temperature is. The benefits behind knowing our core temperatures are driving additional research, but today we know the brain synchronizes the cells in the body based on the temperature of our surroundings. Our exposure to light (heat) also benefits us by assisting us in fighting infections, dealing with infertility issues and helping us take medications at optimum times.
