This Ancient Therapy Makes Pain VANISH (Amazing!)

Big Pharma wants you to believe you have to spend an arm and a leg to treat conditions like pain, sleep problems, heart disease, and inflammation.

I beg to differ.

In fact, there’s an ancient remedy – one that’s completely natural and completely free – that can benefit just about every area of your health.

I’m a big fan of this method, and I practice it myself every day.

Here’s why you should, too.

Your body is 60% water, and you should be drinking plenty of it for everything from regulating your body temperature to boosting skin health to lubricating your joints.

But as beneficial as water is when you put it in your body, it’s just as good for you when you take advantage of it on the outside of your body.

I’m talking about an ancient practice called hydrotherapy, which involves in immersing your body in either hot or cold water.

I take advantage of cold hydrotherapy as often as I can by sitting in the natural cold spring pools nearby my home here in Arizona.

While most of the benefits of hot or cold therapy utilize full immersion, you can still glean the benefits by taking either a hot or a cold shower.

Here are the top benefits of each.

Benefits of COLD showers

  1. It improves circulation. The cold water causes the blood vessels on the surface of your skin to constrict, which improves circulation in your deeper tissues.
  2. It lowers your levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
  3. It can reduce pain by triggering something called stress-induced analgesia, which occurs when your body suppresses its pain response in response to a stressful stimulus.
  4. It can reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, which is why you often see professional athletes soaking in ice baths after performing.
  5. It can help numb pain.

Benefits of HOT showers

  • It improves heart health by improving blood flow and reducing arterial stiffness.
  • It helps soothe stiff joints and aching muscles (another benefit of improved blood flow).
  • It can improve brain health by increasing BDNF levels. BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor) has numerous important functions in your brain, including promoting learning and memory.
  • It can improve sleep by helping your body relax.
