I have taking cold show for 9 years. I think this is the most powerful natureal therapy. My immune system is so strong that I seldom get sick. I suggested my coworkers to try, they said i am crazy.

Well, I have this bronchial thing going on, and being a teacher, I cannot afford to be sick. Tonight I decided to take a cold shower, and this is big for me. I HATE COLD WATER! I always take very hot showers, and tonight I thought, I cannot break the congestion. Well, I gritted my teeth, and ran under the shower. I came out of the shower, and the phlegm started to come up big time. No explanation, but I hate to say it, it felt good, and I do feel refreshed! I think I will do the same tomorrow!

I used to catch a cold 2 or 3 times a year. But ever since started taking a cold shower every day 11 years ago, I have had a cold only once or twice, and simply feel great in general.

Stress-Induced Psoriasis

After the death of two very close friends and a lot of stress, I ended up with stress induced psoriasis all over my head, neck and shoulder. I tried EVERYTHING OTC and nothing worked so finally, I gave up, and started saving money to go to the doctor. I came across the cold water therapy on this site and although I did not intend to use it to treat this issue, it sure cured it. I started taking cold water showers in the hottest months here in Virginia. Immediately I noticed the increase in energy and my hair is SUPER SOFT even after months of harsh psoriasis shampoos that had my hair turning to straw. Call me crazy, but it seems my shower doesn't get as grimy as it did before when I was using hot water. My complexion has improved, and there is an obvious difference in my pores. Basically, I have nothing bad to say about cold showers. After 2 months of them, I can't even STAND a hot shower now.

I've been doing cold showers for 2 weeks, and my appetite significantly decreased, and i lost 4 pounds already. Amazing! ACV helps too, but it doesn't decrease appetite as cold showers do, at least for me.
