Depression Relief


Best Review 7209

Lots of great men from history suffered bouts of depression. Henry David Thoreau is one such man. But perhaps Thoreau’s baths in chilly Walden Pond helped keep his black dog at bay. Research at the Department of Radiation Oncology at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine indicates that short cold showers may stimulate the brain’s “blue spot”- the brain’s primary source of noradrenaline — a chemical that could help mitigate depression.

Healthy Skin and Hair with Vitality


Best Review 7209

Hot water dries out skin and hair. If you want to avoid an irritating itch and ashy elbows, turn down the temperature of your showers. Also, cold water can make your manly mane look shinier and your skin look healthier by closing up your cuticles and pores.

Increased Immunity

According to a study done in 1993 by the Thrombosis Research Institute in England, individuals who took daily cold showers saw an increase in the number of virus fighting white blood cells compared to individuals who took hot showers. Researchers believe that the increased metabolic rate, which results from the body’s attempt to warm itself up, activates the immune system and releases more white blood cells in response.

Significant Level of Testosterone Increase

During the 19th century, many doctors and ministers recommended that young men take baths in cold water to reduce the sin of “self-pollution,” i.e. whacking off. Cold water was thought to extinguish a man’s flaming carnal desires.

Increased Fertility

Cold showers are good for your little swimmers. Your testes aren’t meant to get too hot; that’s why they hang outside your body. Sperm counts decrease when the temperature of a man’s testes increases. Experiments done in the 1950s showed that hot baths were an effective contraceptive. Men who took a 30 minute hot bath every other day for 3 weeks were infertile for the next six months. More recently, the University of California at San Francisco did a study with men who were exposed to 30 minutes of “wet heat” (hot baths and such) a week. When the men cut this exposure out, their sperm count went up by 491%, and their sperm’s motility improved as well.

Increased Energy

Every time I end a shower with cold water, I leave feeling invigorated and energized. Your heart starts pumping, and the rush of blood through your body helps shake off the lethargy of the previous night’s sleep.

There are some people who should not take cold showers without consulting a doctor first. These people are the following medical conditions.

Heart disease.
If my normal, healthy heart jumps when I take a cold shower, imagine how a diseased heart will feel.

High blood pressure.
The contraction in your blood vessels caused by cold water could cause a stroke.

Overheated or feverish.
Your blood vessels need to dilate in order to release heat. Cold water causes them to constrict.

Don't start taking cold showers cold turkey, so to speak. Start out with luke warm water and gradually change the temperature until it's colder than you ever took a shower before. Day by day you will get to an ability to take a very stimulating cold shower.
