Healing and losing weight using cold thermogenesis.

Cold Thermogenesis by immersion in water or exposure to cold air?
When skin cold receptors perceive cold temperatures over a period of 2 weeks, leptin is liberated from fat cells in large quantities. Leptin is the master hormone in the body. Leptin controls all energy metabolism in the body. Cold Thermogenesis lowers body fat, increases Growth Hormone production, favorably impacts telomere lengths and improves autophagy efficiency. Autophagy is critical for longevity: it is the process responsible for the housecleaning of our cells during sleep. (Other things which increase autophagy and fasting, turmeric and exercise).
In addition to Cold Thermogenesis by immersion in water or exposure to cold air, we can also use Cold Thermogenesis on select parts of the body using cold packs/ice packs.
Whichever method you choose, Dr. Kruse recommends eating a high fat (coconut oil and palm oil are rich in MCTs) and/or protein meal (oysters, sardines, whey) before the Cold Thermogenesis session. (about 45 minutes)
He also recommends drinking 16-32 oz. of ice cold water immediately prior to the Cold Thermogenesis session, because ice water is approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit. In order to maintain this homeostasis, your body has to warm that ice water up by about 60 degrees (to about 98.6 degrees), and by definition, it takes 1 calorie to raise the temperature of 1 liter of water by approximately 2 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that to raise the temperature of 1 liter of ice water by 60 degrees Fahrenheit, your body burns about 30 calories.
Cold Thermogenesis is a powerful tool to make epigenetic changes to our DNA, as well as an efficient tool for weight loss, especially when combined with morning sungazing and other useful nutritional approaches.
