Body temperature for health
Our body temperature often reflects our health. The term normally refers to the temperature of our core, not our extremities, however the temperature of our extremities can be a good indicator of health also, for instance, freezing cold, blue-coloured hands and feet can be an early sign of hypothermia.
The ideal core temperature is around 37° degrees Celsius or 98.6° degrees Fahrenheit. However this can vary from a minimum of 36.5° Celsius or 97.7° Fahrenheit to a maximum of almost 37.5° Celsius or 99.5° Fahrenheit.
Within the ideal range, the human body operates efficiently. Any colder or hotter and things start to go wrong, so keep an eye on people with bad circulation in the cold or those that suffer in hot conditions. Try out kungfu to improve your circulation!
