Cold hands & sweaty armpits

What should I check for? What natural (lifestyle, dietary, supplements) solutions are worth trying?

No problem! If it bothers you that much though, believe there is a surgery for it. But its pretty costly and probably not worth it to most people, but it's an option

Thank you very much for your suggestions! I recently checked all my hormones, including thyroid, they were all fine. Already supplement with magnesium, but should probably look closer at the other supplements you suggested. Thanks!

No, I don't smoke. Generally very healthy, paleo lifestyle. Trying hard 2 times a week. Easting lots of red meat, lots of fats, lots of carbs, and lots of protein :) Thanks for suggestions!

Have you ever inquired to see if you had hyperhydrosis? The reason I ask is because I know someone who had that, it's a form of excessive sweating. The symptoms are the same as what you describe. This one is a real thinker. I'm not sure if there are any lifestyle modification to stop that. I did see an article on line that recommends sage extract or sage tea, magnesium (excessive sweating can be associated with a magnesium deficiency), burdock, and natural antiperspirants. Hope this helps.

This sounds like me when I used to smoke. You don't smoke, do you?

It's a sign of poor circulation. Causes could be a million things, but you may want to chec to make sure you eat enough, and maybe try playing around with your macro ratios for a bit. I know it sounds silly, but when I go too low carb or too low fat, I notice energy and circulation issues. If you don't eat much red meat, I'd suggest adding in a good amount as the combination of fat/nutrients tends to normalize things for me. As far as supplements go: fish oil, green tea extract, and gingko biloba may all help. Good luck!

p.s. Do you have any other issues such as constipation, or fatigue?
