In this issue, I will address the magic sauce that Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) activates in the brain to release a collection of wonderful chemicals inside the human body to help rejuvenate and heal.
Within 30 seconds inside a Cryosauna at minus 220 degrees Fahrenheit. the human body’s skin sensors send an extraordinarily powerful signal to the brain that the body is about to succumb. The brain responds instantly! To preserve the body’s core temperature of 98.6 F degrees, neural signals are sent to vasoconstrict the blood vessels in the limbs to pool as much warm blood into the core of the body.
Simultaneously, the brain’s pituitary gland releases endorphins (that provide relief from pain) and the hypothalamus secretes neurohormones, which are designed to treat and repair target organs like the brain, heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, reproductive organs and other tissues.
For the next two to three minutes while inside the Cryosauna, the person’s core blood is super enriched with oxygen, endorphins and neurohormones. All crucial life processes are dramatically accelerated. In other words, during WBC, if the performance of any of the organs or body tissues were low or impaired, these deficiencies are remedied as much as possible with all the required components, so the bolstered organs and tissues can begin to recover. And this is all accomplished naturally using the body’s own regenerative chemicals and powers. In contrast, Western medicine mostly treats organs and tissue when signs of a failure are evident.
When the WBC session is finished and the client steps out of the Cryosauna into normal room temperature, signals to the brain indicate this new temperature change, and all peripheral tissues then expand, including blood vessels, muscles and skin tissues. Under the temporary higher blood pressure caused by WBC, enriched blood is now released from the “internal core cycle” and flows back out to the peripheral tissues, filling all the remote corners of the body from which it was withheld during the low temperatures. When this enriched blood reaches peripheral tissues, they are enhanced in the same beneficial way as the internal organs were during the treatment. In fact, this beneficial process continues in the body for six to eight hours after the treatment.
This enriched blood creates favorable conditions for internal organ regeneration, expelling toxins from subcutaneous layers, the cell renewal process, replacement of damaged cells and elimination of dead cells from peripheral tissues, that is, the rejuvenation of the body at the cellular level.
WBC is the only known modality that accomplishes this extraordinary response in the human body and without any collateral damage to the body, meaning no adverse side effects like those that are caused by drugs or surgery.
