So my newest morning ritual involves turning the shower to cold at the end as long as I can handle it... right now I'm at 10 seconds
I'm certainly not the first one to try this out, cold water therapy dates back to ancient times to stimulate the vis. The cold water is actually considered a warming treatment because it forces the body to heat itself up and stimulate the immune system.
There are countless benefits to this awesome practice including:
- Glowing skin: cold water prevents dry skin and tightens pores
- Improves circulation: the hot and cold water dilates and constricts blood vessels along with the lymphatic system which gets the blood and detoxifies the body
- Supports the immune system: hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to improve the body's immune response which has shown profound results
Try it yourself... you might actually like it!
