Are you challenged with chronic stress (high cortisol), inflammation, thyroid (T3) problems, or even insulin resistance? This simple technique performed in just 11 minutes a week can help!
Do you avoid coldness whenever possible and prefer comfort? Most of us do. We heat our homes, we heat our pools, and we enjoy steaming hot showers.
But continued research suggests that being uncomfortable, and most specifically, cold immersion, offers tremendous health benefits for various areas of health.
Spending just 11 minutes a week on cold therapy through the use of cold showers, cold pools, cold bodies of water, or in a specialized cold-water immersion tank may significantly increase your health.
Cold-water immersion can potentially help decrease:
- ApoA to ApoB ratios
- Homocysteine levels
- Oxidative stress
- ACTH and cortisol
- Uric acid
- Risks for upper respiratory tract infections
- Muscle soreness
- Recovery time after exercise
- The growth of tumors
Cold-water immersion can potentially help increase:
- Thyroid stimulating hormone and T3 (active hormone)
- T cells
- White blood cells
- Insulin sensitivity
- Mental resilience
Cold-water immersion also helps turn on certain genes that would otherwise be inhibited, including: PGC-1 (mitochondria biogenesis), VEGF (blood vessel), and PPARGC1A (VO2max).
