improve sleep with whole body cryotherapy

If you are having trouble with your sleep, you are likely looking for a solution. Instead of relying on sleeping pills that may have dangerous and addictive side effects, making the switch to standing in a cryochamber for a few minutes can be better for your health. Not only can you improve sleep with cryotherapy, but you can reap a multitude of other heath benefits in the process.

Improve Your Overall Wellness

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) rapidly drops the body’s surface temperature through exposure to cold nitrogen vapors. This process tricks your body into hypothermia mode and draws a majority of your blood into its core where nutrient-enriching and oxygenation occur. Upon exiting the cryochamber, the nutrient-rich blood is released and pumped vigorously back into tissues, effectively detoxifying and stimulating growth and regeneration.

How Cryotherapy Improves Your Sleep

Endorphins are also released a result of triggering your nervous system and can lead to a lasting feeling of euphoria after cryotherapy, followed by relaxation. The release of endorphins and anti-inflammatory properties has been shown to help combat insomnia and the effects of sleep disorders.

Cryotherapy is also effective at reducing inflammation and muscles aches in your body via a total systemic response that is triggered by hypothermic conditions. The analgesic effects brought on by cryotherapy are a result of an effective system “reboot”. The absence of chronic pain and inflammation, even temporarily, can help you fall and stay asleep better.

Rest and Recovery

Cryotherapy can also stimulate the vagus nerve, the main nerve center responsible for your parasympathetic nervous system. Effective stimulation of the vagus nerves can significantly reduce inflammation and also trigger your body’s relaxation response by releasing acetylcholine and communicating with other parts of your body.

By scheduling regular whole body cryotherapy appointments, you can improve your sleeping patterns and expect to wake up feeling rested and energized.

relieve inflammation

In this life, you only get one body – you want to look and feel as good as possible, right? You don’t have to suffer any longer! Here’s your guide to relieve inflammation . . . the natural way!

The Natural Foodie Ways to Relieve Inflammation

1. First things first, are you getting enough omega-3 fatty acids? Inflammation can be extremely painful, and has been known to cause irritation, infection, redness, and swelling. However, fueling your body with omega-3 fatty acids has been known to counteract this discomfort. Just where can you find these good, fatty acids?

  • Fish Oil
  • Chia Seeds
  • Herring and Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Flaxseeds

2. Are you currently getting enough vitamin D? Used to treat a variety of ailments, including bone weakness and pain, bone loss, and inflammation, there are different ways to consume vitamin D, including:

  • Supplements
  • Cheese
  • Egg Yolks (other dairy products)
  • Beef Liver

3. This may be the hardest tip of all, but it’s an important one: avoid Sugar! Sugar tastes good, gets in the way of the healing process and can cause mayhem in the long term. The rule of moderation applies – sometimes, you just need to treat your body. However, think about it: Is suffering from inflammation worth consuming large amounts of sugar? If you have a sweet tooth, it may be difficult, but try to avoid foods that are high in sugar.

4. There should be plenty of antioxidant-rich foods included in your diet. Particularly, antioxidants can help keep you healthy, and even assist in preventing diseases, as they prohibit the oxidation of other molecules in the body. While you can take an antioxidant vitamin, it’s also easy to find these nutrients in common foods. Try eating the following (perhaps you already do):

  • Purple and Red Grapes
  • Blueberries and Strawberries
  • Nuts (specifically, walnuts)
  • Dark Green Vegetables (the best examples are broccoli, spinach, kale, and collard greens)

5. The Techie Way

While inflammation is the healing way the body responds to injury, it can cause diseases when chronic.

Whole body cryotherapy is a natural and healthy alternative to pain relievers. The cold temperature cause the body to reboot itself, increasing the release of anti-inflammatory chemicals that will soothe the affected areas. The improved blood flow will allow for a more effective elimination of the toxins that were slowing down the healing process.
There are many benefits to using cryotherapy from physical recovery to health and wellness; its most immediate being alleviating pain and decreasing inflammation.

If you want to relieve inflammation the natural way, then start incorporating the tips listed above into your daily life. Unfortunately, change takes time. You can’t consume a bunch of blueberries today, and sporadically feel better tomorrow. However, if you begin making consistent changes, and stick with a plan, you’ll be sure to feel better in no time!

lose weight with cryotherapy

When combined with a nutritious diet and exercise plan, it is possible to lose weight with cryotherapy. Stepping into a whole body cryotherapy chamber can speed up your metabolism and burn hundreds of calories.

How Does Cryotherapy Promote Weight Loss?

The extreme cold temperatures make your body think it’s in danger and notify your brain that it needs extra blood flow. This increases your body heat and metabolism. After you get out of the cold chamber, your body will have to use a lot of energy to get warm again, helping you burn more calories. The effects of metabolism boost last for up to 24 hours after a session, which means you are on optimal functioning mode without having much to do.

To lose weight with cryotherapy, it’s recommended to book at least 10 sessions over the course of two to three weeks. While not a treatment designed to make you shed those extra pounds, it has its place in your weight management journey.

If you’ve never tried cryotherapy before, the idea of standing in a freezing chamber might sound scary. However, you will only be in the chamber for a few minutes and carefully monitored by a trained staff.

Tips to Prepare for Your First Cryotherapy Session

  • Arrive about 15 minutes early. This will give you plenty of time to fill out paperwork and ask any questions you have about the treatment.
  • Exercise before your appointment. Whole body cryotherapy will help your muscles recover faster from the workout by reducing inflammation.
  • Take a deep breath before entering the cold chamber. It will help calm your nerves.
  • Make sure your socks are dry when you step into the cold chamber. Any dampness increases the risk of frostbite.

If you are not quite ready for whole body cryotherapy yet, you can try localized cryotherapy treatments. With these treatments, cold is applied to a specific part of your body, like your legs or arms. It will have the benefit of getting you familiar with the concept and boost your collagen production (i.e. decrease cellulite).

cryotherapy

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is not just for well-trained athletes or for professional healthcare advocates. It’s for everyone!

Cryotherapy and Skin Rejuvenation

The sub-zero treatment helps stimulate skin tissue through vasoconstriction (tightening of blood vessels). When blood rapidly rushes back to the extremities after cold treatment, the force helps to flush out toxins and rejuvenate tissues. Many describe the feeling after a session in the cryo chamber as feeling reenergized and recharged. Cryo Facials™ are a more localized treatment that focuses on the areas around the face and neck to encourage collagen production and maintain elasticity.

Cryotherapy for Everyone 

Not only do real women also engage in WBC as a part of their beauty and fitness regimen, but the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills paid a visit to a cryotherapy facility to experience the health and beauty benefits of cold therapy.

Watch and have a laugh as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills try WBC and see how easy it is to try! If they did it, you can too! Make it a regular part of your beauty and wellness routine. Maybe even grab a few girlfriends for some real fun!
