Cold showers have been shown to relieve depression symptoms due to the intense impact of cold receptors in the skin, which send an overwhelming amount of electrical impulses from the peripheral nerve endings to the brain. Thus, it produces an antidepressive effect, and boosts moods, making it a pick-me-up. A 2008 study found that cold hydrotherapy has an analgesic effect, and does not appear to have noticeable side effects or cause dependence. This treatment included one to two cold showers of 38 degrees Fahrenheit, two to three minutes long, followed by a five-minute gradual adaptation to make the procedure less shocking.
ok, here is my comment blitzkrieg starting…and in no particular order, first about shoes! i would love to do this. i remember hearing about this when i was younger and loving that i could play outside with no shoes and it be GOOD for me! and then i grew up :/ unfortunately what’s (mainly) stopping me now is an extremely bad plantars wart smack dab in the center of my left foot. i have literally been trying for 5 years to get rid of it. i’ve been to several doctors about it (one who had the gall to suggest that if i just “believe it will be healed, it will heal”….thanks dufus). in short, getting stuff in it really hurts! have you heard about going barefoot helping those of us who already have a tendency to get warts? i think its a genetic thing.
anyway, maybe one day when i’m finally able to concur this thing.
