Cold Water Immersion: The Natural Combatant to the World's Deadliest Disease

Cold Water Immersion: The Natural Combatant to the World's Deadliest Disease

Chronic Inflammatory Diseases are the #1 cause of death in the world. Worldwide, 3 out of every 5 deaths are due to chronic inflammatory diseases. Here are a few that might sound familiar and how many people this disease affects in the United States: 

While cancer does not always strike someone as being caused by inflammation, "many cancers arise from sites of infection, chronic irritation and inflammation."

These numbers make it very clear to anybody that wants to live a long, healthy and active life that chronic inflammation is at the top of the list of concerns and they should be looking to get it under control. 

That is where Cold Water Immersion comes in. Cold Water Immersion (CWI) or Cold Water Therapy is like putting an ice pack on an area inflamed by injury but for your whole body.

When you put the ice pack on the inflamed area of your body, it reduces the pain and swelling by constricting your blood vessels in the localized area. 

Now can you guess what your body's natural reaction is to submerging in water that is below 40° F? 

Your body's blood vessels constrict. And not just in a localized area but throughout your entire body.

Cold Water Immersion Reduces Inflammation

In a chronically inflamed body, this gives reprieve and improves circulation as the constriction forces your blood to be moved throughout your body. 

In a world where taking a pill or some new pharmaceutical drug with a laundry list of side effects is the answer to everything health-related, isn't it time to look for a natural way to help the body heal? 

As this is one of the numerous benefits of cold water therapy, it's just logical.
