Dr. G’s PERSONAL Fountain of Youth
I used to tell my sons to act their age.
But I have to tell you… I have a hard time following my own advice.
I don’t want to act my age. Whether I’m biking, mountain climbing, or hiking, I want to keep up with guys HALF my age.
Let me tell you how I do it.
I’ve been using a unique treatment for years now. Studies show that it does everything from reducing pain and inflammation, to increasing hormone levels and immune function.
This therapy is simple, quick, and 100% FREE.
And you take advantage of all its benefits, starting TODAY.
My go-to treatment is a form of cold therapy called cold thermogenesis, and it involves exposing yourself to extremely cold temperatures for a short period of time.
I’ll tell you all about why it’s beneficial—and how to do it. But first, you need to know that there are some medical risks that could be associated this type of cold exposure.
You probably shouldn’t try it if you have heart problems. So before taking the plunge, be sure to check with your doctor.
If you get the all-clear (or if you’re not at risk to begin with), here are just a few of the reasons why cold-water therapy is so beneficial for your health—and why I do it at least once a week.
For starters, this cutting-edge treatment can completely eliminate pain.
In a case study published in BMJ, a man suffering from chronic nerve pain reported COMPLETE and PERMANENT pain relief after swimming in 51-degree water for just ONE MINUTE.
I don’t know any pharmaceutical drug that can boast those kinds of results!
Studies have also shown that cold therapy can ease depression symptoms, overcome fatigue, and improve recovery in athletes. One reason for these impressive results is because cold therapy stimulates the release of pain-killing and mood-regulating chemicals in the brain.
But one of the best across-the-board benefits of this treatment is that it helps protect against disease. That’s because it boosts specific immune system cells that fight infection and disease. It also boosts glutathione, one of the most potent antioxidants for protecting against disease—and even for helping prevent cancer.
Personally, I soak in ice-water baths at least once a week in order to get the benefits of cold thermogenesis. But there are numerous ways to engage in cold therapy without doing a polar bear plunge.
- Take a cold shower. Five to 10 minutes should be sufficient to bring your body temperature down.
- During the winter, spend time outside. Just 10 minutes a day will help you achieve the benefits of cold thermogenesis.
- Turn down your thermostat at night. Sixty-six degrees ought to do it (of course, no blankets!)
Whether you choose one of these options—or you take the ice-water plunge—just know that the beginning is always the hardest part.
After that, your body adapts and it really isn’t so bad.
To a brighter day,
