One question we often hear from our customers is “How can I improve my circulation?”
The good news is that there is a simple way to improve circulation in the body. It's called Contrast Showers.
Here's how it's done:
1. You stand in the shower and turn the water on as hot as you are able to stand it. Run the hot water over your body for a minute or two.
2. Then change the temperature of the water to as cold as you are able to stand it. Continue running the cold water on your body for about a minute or so.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 about 4 to 8 times.
4. End off with the cold water.
Do this several times a day for the most benefit.
When you begin, you may only be able to tolerate warm water then slightly cool water. This is okay because you don't want to scald yourself. As you do it more often, you'll gradually be able to withstand hotter as well as colder water and this will make it even more effective.
The hot water causes the blood to flow towards the surface of the body. The cold water makes the blood flow towards the center of the body.
Here are some reported benefits of Contrast Showers in addition to better blood circulation:
*Boosts the immune system
*Revitalizes the skin
*Reduces muscle soreness
*Temporary relief of aching, pains and stiff joints from arthritis
*It helps the body to reduce toxins. (Medications are very toxic to the body.)
*Better digestion and nutrient assimilation
*Can help to improve mobility
*Improves production of digestive enzymes
*Improves the oxygen to the internal organs
*Helps prevent colds
Poor circulation can also reduce the absorption of nutrients that you're taking.
Improving your circulation can help your body to get better results from the nutrients that you're taking.
It's not recommended that you take a Contrast Shower if:
*You are asthmatic
*Have an active autoimmune disease
Consult your physician if you have any questions about the safety of this procedure.
