The Cold Experiment

Cold Experiment
Orlando, FL, USA

I was invited to do an ice bath at a friend's home. Keeping a long story short, I was really anxious when the time to enter the ice water came. My head was spinning & my body felt super uneasy. As I entered the water, a part of me entered a fight/flight/freeze stress response that was accompanied by hyperventilating. 1 minute in, nothing changed, and I didn't think I would make it to the suggested 3 mins, but after 1.5 mins something changed. The chatter in my skull completely stopped, my body started to feel HOT, and for the first time in a long time, I felt deeply at PEACE. I came home.

This experience made me realize that the cold was a mirror and that it could only show me the truth that I held within. Having struggled with pretty severe depression and anxiety for a good part of my life, Cold Therapy has brought me deeper peace and connection within myself than ever in my entire life....and that's what motivates me to share this medicine with as many people as possible.

I am, we are, a stand for RADICALLY TRANSFORMING the mental health and well-being of our planet and striving to our greatest potential.
