Decrease Inflammation and Increase Testosterone with Ice Baths and Cold Therapy

I like to chill out, but probably not in the sense you’re used to.

My kind of chilling means daily and regular cold therapy – situations in which I purposefully place my body in a cool to cold environment. Am I crazy? You might think so, but once I explain all the health benefits of cold therapy, there’s a good chance you’ll be reaching for the ice cubes.

First of all, forget the old wives’ tale about how being cold gives you a cold; it’s just not scientifically true.

Here’s 6 things that work for me (in the specific order that I follow immediately on waking): Read More
