I saw this article and thought it might interest people who are into personal experimentation.
I think hot/cold can be therapeutic. Drinking ice cold water definitely wakes me up and feel energized, or splash the face with cold water. Hot showers really help me but yeah a sauna seems more efficient because I feel like I waste hot water in a hot shower – it just goes down the drain. I’m thinking maybe I can make some kind of small cheap safe private sauna tent somehow. Who knows.
Saunas, no, but I’m a great believer in the Wim Hof method of breathing exercises and cold showers. I’ve had a cold shower every morning for the last 5 months and it has done wonders for my early stage Parkinson’s disease.
Same here. I think cold exposure is very invigorating and therapeutic. My 79-year-old mother takes cold showers every morning and swears by it as a health practice.
