This isn’t exactly new news but it’s new to me, so I decided to share.
SCZs have trouble regulating their body temperature
This is a problem because body temperature controls circadian rhythms for the whole body
And Circadian rhythm dysfunction is linked strongly to mental illness
I don’t know what the moral is but I guess this (body temperature/Circadian rhythm dysfunction) another piece of the SCZ puzzle.
I also read a little that chronic stress can cause body temperature dysfunction. I couldn’t draw a clear connection though. It would certainly make a lot of sense if true.
Stress leads to body temp dysfunction. Body temp dysfunction messes up Circadian rhythms. Dysfunction Circadian rhythms leads to a lack of sleep which leads to more stress. IDK . . .
