23 UNBELIEVABLE BENEFITS OF COLD WATER PLUNGING!Mar 08, 2020
Over 5 YEARS AGO I began my practice of ICE BATHING, it has improved my life significantly, resulting in: higher energy levels, greater ability to relax, reset my nervous system, extinguish inflammation and soothe my emotional reactivity, calm my mind, repair tissues... and beyond. It has basically provided a simple, direct and powerful way to create better overall balance in all the system of my body. When I step out of the ice bath, I am my best SELF... I am CENTERED, BRIGHT, AWAKE, GRATEFUL, PRESENT, and YOUTHFUL.
This video was taken as I was beginning my journey 5 years ago.
All I can say is I wish I had known about it decades before. I was well aware of the benefits of cold water in the ocean, rivers, mountain springs, but to be able to have access to 33 degree water outside my back door anytime I want, has been an incredible blessing. AND, it costs about 10 dollars per year to run this freezer. It is one of the best and least expensive tools to shift state and heal our psychology, physiology, and tune up emotional well being that I have ever experienced.
