My guest this week is Adrienne Jezick, Co-Founder Morozko Forge, Master Deliberate Cold Exposure (DCE) Guide.
In this episode, Adrienne shares an all-too-familiar story of a major battle with autoimmunity to the point where she thought she was dying. Low and behold, she tried one natural therapy for autoimmunity after another until she noticed that ice baths, or deliberate cold exposure therapy, made the biggest impact. While an anti-inflammatory diet was also helpful, ice bath’s opened her eyes to a totally new world of healing autoimmunity naturally. Ice baths have the power to heal chronic and acute conditions and can be a complementary therapy for many other diseases. We encourage you to comb through the clinical research out there.
Perhaps one of the biggest deterrents for deliberate cold exposure is the fear of discomfort. That’s normal. Adrienne speaks with us today with full confidence that we can, with the right guidance, be someone who tolerates and benefits from ice baths.
Today’s episode will help you understand how to prepare for deliberate cold exposure, how long to stay in an ice bath, who should NOT try ice baths, what kind of breathwork is helpful for ice baths, contrast therapy, and how often you should do ice baths. And of course, what to do if you don’t have access to a place that has ice baths.
