It basically provides few benefits, breaks some myths and suggests adding few min of cold showers to the daily routine.
A pocket guidebook for cold showers.
Recommended for "experts" too.
In his introduction Scott states `It has long been known that cold showers and baths can affect the body in positive ways. Cold water therapy has been around for quite a while now but due to innovations of modern medicine, it has been almost forgotten. Since holistic care has made a comeback in recent years, the use of cold water therapy has also seen a return into people's lives.' He goes on to debunk certain myths about cold showers (they cause colds and flu, hypothermia, speed up sobriety, dampen libido, etc) and then discusses the history of hydrotherapy and the use of cold water in treating patients, the science behind Cold Showers (antidepressant effect, enhanced anti-oxidative defense, increase white blood cells and thus fight infections, reduce response to painful stimuli, and more.
The health benefits of Cold Showers are enumerated: improves blood circulation, strengthen the immune system, foster healthier skin and hair, supports diminishing stress, weight loss and improved metabolism, combats depression and enhances mood, increases energy, improves breathing, reduces inflammation, and supports better sleep. Some aspects of the benefits of Cold Showers apply to men only - increase sperm count and motility, increase testosterone, and increase strength among others.
Scott then takes us through the preparation of adapting to taking Cold Showers, listing precautions, wither jump right in or elect to start gradually. As always with Scott James' books you can rely on his expertise and research and background. This is a fine little book that opens a new window to health maintenance. Grady Harp, June 14
