Hey everyone just wanted to share my 2 years experience with cold showers. I have taken probably 2 or 3 warm showers in the past 2 years and that too I couldn't leave the shower or had to go back in to end it with a cold shower because my skin felt horrible. I will never go back to taking a warm shower. Cold showers are literally an ADDICTION for me! I take 1-2 ICE cold showers every day. I am excited to share my experience and some of the benefits. The first time I tried this 2 years ago, I got really sick for a week. My immune system was too weak to handle the sudden change. I started off ice cold, literally all the way to the end. Luckily, I had the will to try it once more and stick with it. Once I got over the sickness, I took a light cold shower, and gradually increased it over time. I literally have fun with cold showers now! I have tried so many variations! Here are some cool ones: -if you want to improve your blood circulation (regulating blood pressure, blood cleaning, oxygen reach), start ice cold and wash all over for a minute then switch really warm for a minute and cycle back and forth and make sure to end with ice cold. You will have cycled so much fresh blood and oxygen your skin will be flushed all over and you will feel REALLY GOOD. - work out and take an ice cold shower for 10 minutes! YOU WILL FEEL LIKE A SPARTAN AFTER AND JUST IN SO MUCH RELAXATION. My mood is always better! My skin is literally glowing no joke lol You will never need skin cream again. I feel bad for girls sometimes because they take warm showers which opens up the pores and leaks essential oils and then they put on makeup. That is why so many women have accelerated aging and it shows. Dudes will really enjoy the fact that you will never bald and you will actually grow your mane more fully! For those who have taken cold showers for only a short period of time or haven't really gotten to the ice cold stage (5-15 minutes straight ice cold for over 1 year at least), you still have not attained some of the LONG TERM benefits. It is simply ridiculous. When I think of people taking warm showers I literally am dumbfounded. It's torture! You ever notice how you want to never get out of a warm shower and dread it when you do? Not with cold showers! It has literally changed my life. I used to be balding, now my hair is thick, silky and jet black. My skin feels tighter, softer and it just gets better month after month. When I was 23, I looked like I was in my late 20s. Now that I am 25, I get ID'd everywhere and people say I look 21 at the most. My advice whenever I see people and they say things like, "I'm balding, I'm too lazy, my skin feels like crap etc. etc. I always say the remedy to everything, in my experience is cold showers. THE BEST TIME TO TAKE A COLD SHOWER IS THE WINTER. I hear people say that they stop taking cold showers in the winter because its too cold. When the taps are frozen, that is the PERFECT time! It's colder! The BEST TIME IS WINTER! I have not gotten sick in 2 years. The one time I thought I was sick I was just light headed and felt tired for 6 hours, nothing more. I am sure my immune system is very good because I can step out in freezing weather with a t-shirt on and be laughing. I went to the goddam WINTER CLASSIC in Ann Arbour and had a sweater on while everyone was reeling from the weather. I was just laughing. Something about cold showers just made me a more powerful, highly immune human being. It is the best thing I have ever done for my life literally! That is why I stress that you stick with it and you will hit a point where you will realize that after 2 or 3 minutes your body warms up and then you ENJOY staying in the cold shower and you start singing out loud and laughing uncontrollably cuz it feels so fucking good. ENJOY!
