It is often associated with other Phase 1 (blocked energy metabolism), System 2 (blood and immune function) issues including Hepatitis C (80%) and other viral issues, blood cancers, and other Phase 1, System 2 autoimmune issues including Sjogren’s, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, in which immune dysregulation could be triggered by Mercury (Hg), other toxins in combination with xenobiotic stressors.
The causes and their prevention are not medically known, but Cryoglobulinemia is a blockage of circulation due to clumping of immune proteins and blood with decreased tissue temperature. Cryoglobulinemia is associated with many Phase 1 autoimmune and viral diseases, therefore intracellular detoxification and restoration of cellular energy function should be considered. Avoid cold temperatures and use FIR to counteract exposures to help prevent the protein clumping. Normalizing both hyperimmune reactivity and hypoimmunity in relation to viruses and other xenobiotics with natural immune modulators (rather than simply blocking immune function with immunosuppressant drugs) would appear to make clinical sense while following the Hippocratic oath to first do no harm (primum non nocere).
Temperature regulation: Increase temperature in affected tissue with FIR with acute symptoms, since protein clumping is reversible with increased thermal energy. FIR penetrates into tissues, unlike other forms of sauna. Ultimately, intracellular detoxification for correcting the underlying metabolic blockages that are resulting in low tissue energy production and thermal regulatory capacity will be essential to reversing the hidden causes of thermal sensitivity.
