detoxify

A new year has officially begun, meaning it’s also time to detoxify after the holidays and their parade of goodies. Think about everything you’ve put into your body the past few months. From carbs to desserts, even alcoholic drinks, you could most likely benefit from a good cleanse.

When it comes to cleansing or detoxing, a variety of options are available, such as juicing. However, depending on your specific needs and goals, it’s important to find the best method for you.

5 Ways to Detoxify after the Holidays

The holidays have come and gone. So, are you ready to get clean? Consider these tips to assist you in looking better, and feeling better.

  1. Drink lots of water: Water is a great way to flush out unwanted toxins. Furthermore, water can also prevent you from eating. In fact, hunger pains may not be hunger pains at all, but just your body alerting you that it’s thirsty. It’s recommended to drink water throughout the day, as well as right before a meal, to prevent you from choosing unhealthy foods. Water is a great source to keep your skin looking flawless, meaning water can have you feeling and looking better. Need a bit of flavor? Add lemon or lime.
  2. Feed your body: After over-indulging throughout the holidays, you may be tempted to starve yourself, or hardly eat. However, it’s still important to feed and fuel your body, but with smart and healthy choices. For example, try consuming plant-based meals (i.e. green foods) as often as possible. Stick with fruits and vegetables to get your body back on track.
  3. Rest your digestive system – No one wants to starve themselves. Where’s the fun in that? Not to mention, you may be even more tempted to chow on foods that aren’t good for you. However, you can try a version of fasting, in which you consume your last meal at 7 p.m., and then don’t eat again until lunch the next day. When you wake up in the morning, try just having a cup of coffee. This process will give your digestive system a chance to rest and regroup after working overtime throughout the holidays.
  4. Sweat it out: Exercise is important. If you really want your body to detox, then consider sweating out unwanted toxins. Running or any type of cardio is a great way to accomplish this task. However, yoga is highly recommended, too. Yoga will not only rid your body of toxins, but allow you to regroup, relax, and gain back all of the energy you lost throughout the season. SImply put, yoga has the ability to reconnect you to your body.
  5. Cryotherapy: Whole body Cryotherapy is a new and popular technique used to help you take care of your body. The process in which you literally freeze your body into shape will boost your metabolism, and give you a jolt of energy. Furthermore, cryotherapy will help with the circulation of your blood flow, delivering oxygen and nutrients and powerfully flushing out toxins.

cryotherapy

Cryotherapy uses freezing temperatures to treat a wide variety of ailments, including muscle soreness, depression and arthritis, to name a few. Individuals who want this treatment can choose between localized and whole body cryotherapy. Localized cryotherapy involves applying cold just to the injured area while Whole Body Cryotherapy exposes the entire body to sub-zero liquid nitrogen.

Here are a few groups who can especially benefit from cryotherapy:

Athletes

Whether they are cross country runners or play football, it’s common for athletes to experience muscle soreness from their sport. When their muscles hurt, athletes are not able to give their best performance on the field. That’s why cryotherapy is so beneficial to them. Cold therapy increases blood flow to the muscles, helping them recover faster and train harder.

Fibromyalgia Patients

Individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia experience chronic pain and fatigue on a daily basis. While there is no cure for this condition, fibromyalgia patients can find relief from cold therapy. Cold temperatures can reduce inflammation in the joints, improve circulation in the body and promote better sleep.

Depression Sufferers

Cryotherapy can also be used to treat depression by increasing blood flow and releasing endorphins. People who suffer from depression may feel euphoric after stepping out of a cold chamber.

Cryotherapy Contraindications

While cryotherapy can help treat many ailments, it isn’t for everyone. If you are pregnant or suffer from any of the following, consult with your doctor before trying WBC.

Hypertension
Acute or Recent Myocardial Infarction Arrhythmia
Symptomatic Cardiovascular Disease
Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease
Cardiac Pacemaker
Venous Thrombosis
Uncontrolled Seizures
Acute or Recent Cerebrovascular Injury
Raynaud’s Syndrome
Fever
Lung Disorders
Severe Anemia
Bleeding Disorders
Cold Allergy
Claustrophobia
Acute Kidney Disease
Urinary Tract Disease

A session of cryotherapy is perfectly safe (except in the cases cited above) and conducted under the strict supervision of trained staff and can bring you a relief you had not imagined. Whether you are training for a championship, or just need to get a boost of energy, cryotherapy is worth a try.

cryotherapy benefit

If you’re actively searching for new health trends this year, then you may be interested in learning more about one specific cryotherapy benefit. To save time and energy (keep it for the gym), we’ll go ahead and give you a clue: Whole Body Cryotherapy can increase your metabolism. Intrigued? Ready to know more? Keep reading to discover why your body deserves this ultimate treat.

About Cryotherapy

Is there a chill in the air? You may not be completely familiar with WBC, as people in the know call it, but it’s a new(ish) health trend that just happens to be taking the world by storm. Looking for a quick and easy way to get fit? This could be it!

Cryotherapy is a three-minute treatment, in which an individual stands in a deep freezer chamber, all the while the temperature continues to drop – to a very chilly -256 degrees fahrenheit. Not a fan of the cold? You may be after learning exactly what the cold can do for you. For example, whole body cryotherapy claims to burn (or, in this case, freeze) off up to 800 calories in the 24 hours post-treatment. Not too shabby for a fast, albeit freezing, three minutes, right?

The treatment boosts metabolism and encourages it to work full speed, releases endorphins (which are proven to make you happy), helps soothe those achy muscles, improves your sleeping patterns, reduces cellulite, calms inflammation, and, the best for last: Whole body cryotherapy can even assist in reversing signs of aging.

How It Works

What’s the big secret behind whole body cryotherapy? It’s believed that the nitrogen used during the treatment “tricks” the body into believing it’s in danger – a sense of fear, if you will. The body then goes into preservation mode. The brain then sends signals to the rest of the body, and in turn, blood rushes to the core for protection. This act causes body heat to increase, as well as an individual’s metabolism. Once this process is complete, the enriched blood then rushes through the rest of the body, helping to boost immunity, cell renewal, and even natural pain relievers.

A-list celebrities even seem to enjoy benefits of cryotherapy, as Demi Moore, Chelsea Handler, Mandy Moore, Jessica Alba, and Jennifer Aniston have all been rumored to have jumped on the bandwagon (in the cryo chamber), and started chilling.

But the good news doesn’t stop there! Whole Body Cryotherapy has also been known to assist with a wide variety of other health issues and ailments, including back pain, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and basic joint pain (i.e. sore shoulders, twisted ankle, sprained wrist).

Ready to give it a try? No matter how busy you are, or what your schedule’s like, you have three minutes to spare, don’t you? (You can be in and out in 10 minutes!)

localized cryotherapy

Much like Whole Body Cryotherapy, localized cryotherapy has become increasingly popular not only amongst athletes and Hollywood stars. People suffering from conditions like arthritis benefit greatly from this technique. When is it best to use localized cryotherapy as opposed to WBC or another healing method?

Why is Cryotherapy so Popular?

Every time star athletes or celebrities promote something, many people feel that it is only a craze that won’t last. This couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to cryotherapy.

The benefits of cryotherapy are threefold:

  • Well being: it helps reduce stress, improve sleep, facilitate jet lag recovery. It also provides relaxation and increases energy levels.
  • Health: it is used in physical medicine to help recover faster after an intense training session; it also improves athletic performances, treats muscular and inflammatory pathologies and is known for being efficient in post surgery recovery.
  • Beauty: anti-aging, weight loss support and cellulite reduction, skin care by increasing collagen production.

When to Use Localized Cryotherapy?

Whole Body Cryotherapy acts on your body as a whole therefore providing an overall beneficial healing effect. If you need to target a specific area, then localized cryotherapy is right for you. The handheld device allows the pressurized stream of liquid nitrogen to be directed towards the part of the body that needs it.

Any part of the body can be treated:

Medical: for sufferers of chronic pain essentially, localized cryotherapy will allow them to treat the single zone that it causing them pain. It is also recommended after an injury or surgery to reduce inflammation, bruising and speeds the natural healing process.

Beauty: when localized cryotherapy is used as a beauty treatment, the option to specifically target one single zone produces a better result. It is reported to help treat skin disorders and trigger the natural production of collagen (hence diminishing wrinkles and increasing skin elasticity).

Cryotherapy stimulates the body’s natural healing response especially against inflammation, swelling and pain. But it also improves blood flow which helps get rid of toxins, therefore boosting your immune system. Many women like it for its efficiency in skin rejuvenation (Cryofacials™) and they choose localized cryotherapy so they can work on a specific part of the body, neck and face for better results. When you can target a specific area, you can achieve faster results.
