Long Term Benefits of Hot & Cold Exposure

What does hot and cold exposure do over a long period of time?

Contrast Water Therapy Benefits

Improved Metabolic Rate

Medical practitioners are increasingly referring to poor health as metabolic syndrome (compromised metabolism). This term encompasses a cluster of conditions including high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels.

When our bodies undergo thermogenesis, they generate heat which can help in burning calories and maintaining a healthy weight. This process is essential for regulating our metabolism and ensuring that our energy levels are balanced.

Exposing our bodies to both heat and cold temperatures a few times a week can be incredibly beneficial for our overall health and well-being. This practice can help boost our metabolism, which plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy weight and supporting our body's functions.

Improved Brain Function

Heat exposure and exercise trigger the production of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). BDNF plays a critical role in maintaining our ability to learn (neuroplasticity). Regular physical activity and exposure to heat not only boost BDNF levels but also contribute to overall brain health and well-being. So, the next time you jump in our hot pool, steam sauna or dry sauna, remember that you are not just taking care of your body but also nurturing your brain's capacity to adapt and thrive.

Heat Exposure

Heat shock proteins negate the impact of aging and alcohol consumption by maintaining and repairing cellular proteins

Cold Exposure

Most diseases can be described as some type of inflammation. Cold Shock Proteins are a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
