Try this....

In Response To: for me there's only exercise (Chris(O))

I have had a similar problem. My hands and feet and nose are always cold. My naturopath suggested this, and it seems to be working. When you take your showers, start with hot water. Then after you're good and warm (here's the fun part) turn the water to cold for about thirty seconds. Then go back to warm. Do that two or three times, and finish your shower with cold. This opens your pores to the warmth, and then closes them and pushes the warmth down inside you and stokes the fires within. By the third time, the cold water doesn't feel so bad. You definately don't want to finish with hot water! That leaves your pores open and allows all that great heat that you just soaked in to escape.
Another thing to consider is that you have a slight thyroid issue. Since you're all type O's (like me) you might think about supplementing with bladderwrack and try to eat lots of iodine-rich foods. To check, try taking your basal body temperature for 5 days running, and if it's low (below 97.4 or so) you should talk to a health care practitioner of your choice. Don't do this test on or around your period. Since I've been doing the shower thing and the bladderwrack supplementation, I've noticed some improvement, but still my toes are cold. It's only been a week, tho'. And of course, my tootsies are always toasty after exercise of any sort! Good luck!
