Question Do these seem like normal body temperatures?

I went and visited my GP today and showed her the record of body temperatures I have been keeping for two weeks (degrees celcius)

AM Noon 4PM
35.9 36.2 36.8
36.0 36.5 37.1
35.9 36.4 36.8
36.1 36.7 36.1
36.7 36.4 36.9
36.2 36.8 37.2
35.9 36.3 37.0

These temperatures were taken orally and my naturopath informed me that normal temps are supposed to be from 36.7,36.8 upon arising in the morning to a temp of 37.0 around 4pm. From the ND's standpoint these temperatures are clearly out of optimal range. (this shows only a week of recorded temperatures, the other week shows temps just as low). However my MD told me that these were completely normal and told me that my thinning hair was due to male pattern baldness, while she did not think my other symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue were due to a thyroid problem. I asked her to check both free levels of t3 and t4 as well as t3 and t4 antibodies however because of some screwed up rule the British Columbia government has she claimed she could only check the thyroid antibodies as well as my TSH level which I have heard is useless. I have suspected that I may have Hashimoto's thyroiditis so maybe the antibodies test will reveal something about that. Nonetheless she was adamant that I did not have an issue with my thyroid as I have had my TSH tested through her before. Although she is a great person, I still believe I will put my trust in my naturopath who seems to have a great approach and is no doubt a very smart man. I would appreciate any views on my situation and wonder if anyone can comment on the body temperatures above.
