Dr. G’s Weekly Therapy FREEZES Pain
Mainstream medicine teaches you to reach for a pill when you get sick, are in pain, or feel tired.
But I prefer a unique, drug-free treatment instead. A powerful solution that does everything from reducing pain and inflammation to increasing hormone levels and immune function.
Best of all? This simple therapy is quick and 100 percent FREE.
And I try to do it at least once a week.
My go-to treatment is a form of cold therapy called cold thermogenesis. It involves exposing yourself to extremely cold temperatures for a short time.
I’ll tell you all about why it’s beneficial—and how to do it. But first, you need to know that, for some folks, there are medical risks associated with this type of cold exposure.
One of the most serious is that it could trigger a heart attack or stroke by raising blood pressure. So before taking the plunge, 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 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 that cold therapy stimulates the brain’s release of pain-killing and mood-regulating chemicals.
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 preventing cancer.
I soak in ice-water baths at least once a week to get the benefits of cold thermogenesis. But there are numerous ways to engage in cold therapy without doing a polar bear plunge.
- Hop in a cold shower. Five to 10 minutes should be sufficient to bring your body temperature down.
- Cold outside? Head outdoors. Just 10 minutes a day will give you the cold thermogenesis benefits you want.
- Dial down your thermostat before heading to bed. Sixty-six degrees ought to do it (of course, no blankets!).
Whatever option you choose, know that the beginning is always the hardest part.
After that, your body adapts and it really isn’t so bad.
P.S. No time for a cold shower right now? Don’t turn to risky NSAIDs to tackle your joint pain. Try one of nature’s potent anti-inflammatories instead. They do the job WITHOUT the risks.
