The Many Health Benefits of Cryotherapy

Story at-a-glance

֍ Extreme temperature variations help optimize many biological functions. Vasoconstriction and vasodilation, for example, help optimize the function of your circulatory system by strengthening the smooth muscles

֍ One of the mechanisms by which cold thermogenesis (cryotherapy) aids weight loss and reduces your risk of diabetes and other chronic disease is by inducing brown adipose tissue (BAT), which generates heat

֍ In BAT, heat generation is based on mitochondrial metabolism. In muscle, mitochondrial metabolism plays only a secondary role by supplying energy to the muscle

֍ As your body adapts to colder temperatures, oxygen consumption increases, enzymatic activity in the mitochondria of your muscle is upregulated and the number of mitochondria increases, which results in an overall increase in metabolic rate

֍ Health benefits of cryotherapy include decreased inflammation, pain and swelling; increased speed of recovery following injury; reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety; a lower risk of dementia and much more

This is such an informative post. I am a budding physician and I will be practicing under a good doctor one day. I have some exams to clear and a video like this was very helpful. A person sometimes ignores his private health because of busy schedule and I think cryotherapy is something that will help getting rid benign and malignant lesions.

Heredia05, I agree with you 100%. Thank you for posting on this forum.

I really didn’t know there was some therapy like this. Have any of you tried this? I am really going through some tough times and willing to take any help I can get. One of my friends referred me to https://verv.com/10-tips-to-motivate-yourself-when-youre-depressed/ . I am trying to implement those tips in my life but I wouldn’t mind going for cryotherapy either.

I am sorry to hear of your plight. :( I am praying that your suffering is alleviated soon.

I have never tried cryotherapy myself, so I can't provide any first hand information, but it seems to have some merit and does not appear to be dangerous or toxic in any way.

I hope this helps you, Bella2.

Hi Molly.

I don't know about Bella2, but when I read the word "luxury" in connection with leisure activity, I opt out due to my modest means. I am one of those retired folks on a permanent "staycation". It suits my budget.
