My wife is unable to consume any refrigerated / cold liquids or food. If she does she gets flu like conditions within 8-12 hours. She is 28 years old. Additionally over the past 2 years, her feet have begun swelling from time to time and more recently she has started gaining weight rapidly. The doctors over here feel that there is nothing medically wrong with her.

  • Sounds like something is wrong with her circulation, or time it takes to absorb the food/liquid intake. Room temp items like room temp water can be best absorbed by the body, when something is too cold or cold like a bottle of water in a fridge a body can go into shock, especially under certain circumstances such as a person that has done excessive excersize (body heat is up internal-and since the body is working hard such as the heart regulation and metabolism- colder food intake takes linger for the body to absorb because it has to take longer to equalize....also if her body is reairing and working ******n fixing other problems, it may not have the resources to equalize or utilize the cold food)...remember everything in nature tries to equalize including temp. Instead of her body taking in the colder materials, the colder intake is taking warmth or minerals away from her. Body temp regulation and food absorbtion of minerals and metabolism can be related to the pitituary gland, or thyroid, or it could be something with her circulation and heart....The cold food/liquid could put her body in initial shock, and if she cannot absorb that food right away and her body has to metabolize it differently then her body may go into "check engine" light mode...her body might think it is sick and her auto immune system kicks in....
