21 Health Benefits of a Cold Shower

Alexa Fleckenstein, M.D., author of Health20, has a few things to say about cold showers. Within the book, she writes:

“Cold water can do more than just wash away sweat, dirt, old skin cells, bacteria, and viruses:

What a Cold Shower Can Do For You -

Enhance immunity against infections and cancer

Give your glands (thyroid, adrenals, ovaries/testes) a boost, improving hormonal activity

Jump-start your mood and motivation

Crank up your metabolism to fight type 2 diabetes, obesity, gout, rheumatic diseases, depression, and more

Normalize your blood pressure

Decrease chronic pain

Train and improve your blood circulation

Detoxify your body

Fight fatigue

Strengthen exhausted, irritable nerves

Rejuvenate, heal, and tone the skin

Deepen your breathing

Help with insomnia

Hot water opens up the pours, do this to get your face n sh*t ready and you should finish washing off your soap etc with cold water.

I can't even handle a cold shower, I cant make myself do it.

I like a really hot steaming shower, wash everywhere and turn around in circles for a few mins then turn the heat down to warm before getting out.

I can't imagine being able to clean properly with cold water.

might be a stupid question but is this why i always feel healthy on holiday? because i'm in a cold pool for most of the day (the sun obviously plays a big part but still)
