Cryotherapy - body+soul

Locked

#1 by tasman1 » Sun Mar 27, 2016 21:13

Naked, in sub-zero freezing temperatures.

This week the news was filled with reports about a young woman who literally froze to death in a nitrogen-chilled tank at a cryotherapy spa. As the cause of death is still being investigated, questions about cryotherapy itself have arisen.

Why would anyone willingly undergo a therapy that involves subjecting your naked flesh to brutal sub-zero temperatures as low as negative 240 degrees Fahrenheit? I have an answer to this because I tried cryotherapy a few months ago.

It was several weeks before my wedding, and I’d heard that cryotherapy offered quicker injury recovery, pain management, increased athletic performance, tissue repair and quick weight loss. One cryo spa claims a person can burn up to 850 extra calories in the 48 hours following a treatment. Big names like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Tony Robbins swear by it.

I’ll admit it: I find certain health fads alluring when they make these kind of big claims. What bride wouldn’t be drawn to losing weight, feeling better and having more energy?

I heard about that some weeks ago and I can't remember what that person was
undergoing it.....cancer or some type of ailment, I think. Altho they say the cold
helps people lose weight.

What I have found that helps people lose weight is for them to stop eating so much.
It's a simple solution that works and you don't have to freeze to death.

losing weight isnt rocket science. if you stop eating as much you will lose weight but its the slowest way of doing it. if you eat less but eat more of the right foods and EXERCISE (the key component), then youll get much better results.

and when i say exercise i dont mean a stroll or anything like that. proper exercise with lots of effort as effort is the thing that will burn your calories. you have to go to your limit and then push yourself to do a bit more because its during that push where the real work is done. everything before that is warming up really.

People often ask me how I can stuff my face with chocolate and nuts all the time, and still not put on a pound.

This is from a few weeks ago.



I never put on any weight, because I've taken literally thousands of pictures like this.

It's not, it's worth mentioning, taking the photographs that allows you to eat anything, it's transporting yourself into the correct position to take them that does it.

I think the problem some times is too much exercise.

When I was growing up, rarely did one see an over weight child and even over weight
adults was not often. There might be one or two children in a classroom of 30, that
would be chubby......and if you saw their parents, usually one or both of the parents
were too.

I think in the USA a lot of things have contributed to the over weight and obesity
problem. For starters, Fast Food and Processed Foods. As a small child in a large
city, we had a White Castles, McDonalds, and an A&W was the main fast food joints.
There were pizza places but they weren't chains. There was plenty of sit down diners
but they served real cooked food....not from a bag of frozen stuff.

You ever see the movie 'A Christmas Story'? 'Cam-Lan' was a Chinese restaurant
that we ate at some times after shopping down town. The owner was Charles Sang.
THAT was some mighty good Chinese eats! In the movie, the Chinese restaurant
was based on the 'Cam-Lan' diner.

Back then, you had real food and I can't remember a day that there was ever a
recall on a food product.

The grocery stores weren't full of processed food.

We ate mostly at regular meal times and walking to school, gym, recess, and various
school activities kept most kids fit......but then of course, there was play time after
school and on weekends. We didn't have computers. We had footballs, jump ropes,
bikes, and barbie dolls.

Employment mostly consisted of physical activity. Steel mills and various other factories
were very abundant. People moved when they worked. Today, they rarely stand up
unless its to go to the bathroom or break room to eat.

We were taught exercise is good, of course but most of us did not make it a habit to
do an exercise routine outside of school.....unless of course your name was Jack LaLane.

Also when we ate, I think we ate normal amounts. Rarely did people eat a second portion
of something.

I've been extremely physical in my life but I don't think that is something one needs to
do to lose weight. In fact, I think if you exercise a lot, you best plan on doing it the rest
of your life.

When it comes to losing weight, I think it should be a regular process, not a fast process
and it should consist of a life change. One must discover and practice portion control, go
easy on sugar, salt, processed foods, etc. Do what you can do for the rest of your life so
that your body won't become a yoyo of metabolic confusion.
