Show Notes

Did you know, that the hands, feet, ears, and nose have reduced blood flow compared to the rest of the body?

This explains why the extremities are cooler in cold weather than the rest of the body. 

You might wonder why?

Well, simply put - the warmth goes where fat grows. 

This is why the stomach and chest are two of the warmest areas in the body.  The nose is contrast is composed mainly of cartilage tissue and does not have a lot of insulating fat.

This also explains why we are more susceptible to colds and flus when there is a weather change.

Therefore where the weather takes a turn, measures like warm foods and beverages, warms baths and exercise, will help to increase the body temperature and help prevent the cold flowing where the Fat is not growing.
