The Health Benefits Taking Cold Showers

Taking cold showers have many health benefits. According to the website Earthclinic.com, a cold shower:

  • Brings blood to the capillaries, therefore increasing circulation throughout the body.
  • Cleans the circulatory system.
  • Reduces blood pressure on internal organs.
  • Provides flushing for the organs and provides a new supply of blood.
  • Strengthens the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
  • Contracts the muscles to eliminate toxins and poisonous wastes.
  • Strengthens the mucous membranes, which help resist hay fever, allergies, colds, coughs.

Try starting with some warm water and then gradually reduce it as you go along. Added benefits? Hot water is a major energy sapper so by using less you'll help save the planet! And, rinsing your hair with cold water improves shine.

Cold showers should not be taken during a woman's time of menstruation. A woman needs extra rest and gentleness during her menses. Taking a cold shower is too much for the reproductive system during menstruation. A lukewarm shower is recommended.
