It’s January 5th 2019 and we’re about five months into our daily cold-water immersion routine. So far, this alternative approach to a “chronic cold & cough free” winter seems to work. Our kids (Elvin and Viivi) are pretty determined to proof us wrong though. Every day they consistently smother us with a fresh dose of “highly trained bacteria” ready to infiltrate deep inside our bodies. Now here’s the thing, in the past we simply used whatever was available from the pharmacy to prevent us from getting sick. But…. more than often we ended up being sick anyway… so last September (basically after ÖtillÖ) we decided to try something else and rely on a more natural approach to stay health. As far as cold water therapy is concerned the experts say that it raises the amount of white blood cells that in turn boosts your metabolic speed rate. So, besides the (side) benefit of losing weight (white fat) it also triggers a process that is more effective in fighting off unwanted diseases and infections. Eureka! This is exactly what we are interested in: 1) staying healthy and 2) injury free. Now the question is: Does it work? Well, in our case we have not been sick for five months so I guess there is some truth in it, provided you do it the right way…but more about that later.
