The immune system protects us from various ailments and because of that we should always find a way how to boost it. The well-known Moscow professor Sergei Bubnovskyi found a way how to enhance it with the following innovative method:
He suggests soaking the legs in an ice-cold bath for 10 to 15 seconds once you come home from work. This method will enhance the immune system and thus aiding in the fight against flu and common colds.
The effects of cold water were also confirmed by another English study which revealed that daily showers with cold water increase the numbers of disease-fighting white blood cells.
A team of researchers at the Britain’s Thrombosis Research Institute discovered that during and after the showers with cold water the body tries to warm itself and as a result of that the metabolic rate is being accelerated. Thanks to this process the immune system gets activated thereby leading to an increased number of white blood cells.
According to a German study the occasional winter swim in cold water leads to oxidative stress. But, if this winter swimming turns into a regular routine, it triggers an adaptive antioxidant response thus making the body capable to fight oxidative stress efficiently once it gets accustomed to the cold-water swims.
