    If you have access to 50-55 F tap water and a large tub to fit in the whole body then you are *golden*.
    That is the experimental skin temperature range that produces the favorable hormonal changes....
  2. Yes, cold water will suck heat out of you faster...

    Yes, cold water will suck heat out of you faster than cold still air of the same temperature but the cold air *will* suck heat out of you and a fan's 15 mph wind will suck it out quite fast while...

    I thought that your use of 'cooling house' described a separate building or walk-in refrigerator. My mistake.

    In my personal experimentation with air cooling when I chill in cold air with fans...

    Health first indeed.

    The cooling house sounds ideal from my perspective. If it stays above 0C, you don't run out of air, you time your exposure and no one can lock you in from the outside it...
  5. Yes. I am continuing with 45 minute predawn...

    Yes. I am continuing with 45 minute predawn outdoor wind "bathing" even though our current heat wave has the temps up to an average of 65 in the am. I started this discipline in May and the coolest...

    This is what I have. Looks like I didn't remember the price. Can you buy from Amazon in Canada?

    Your attention can be focused critically upon any mental state such as 'boring,' 'annoying,' or 'can't wait for this to be over.' What is the nature of the annoyance and where is it's 'victim'...

    Thanks for the link. That article is a nice description of BAT with a drawing mapping the locations on the back and neck.

    After I have been in the cold wind for long enough to make my hands and...
  9. This, in my opinion, is the most important...

    This, in my opinion, is the most important question that a person must ask and answer for themselves during any kind of purposeful cold exposure. How the question is framed and studied 'internally'...

    Well I am also using the blue blocker lenses in the early evening an hour or so before sunset. They do help to get an early start on my 9 pm bed time. The blue blockers help with the deep sleep and...

    I have only noted the positive *trend* that keeps me going to see where it will all lead. There are plenty of mornings when getting up before the sun and/or getting into a cold air stream is the...

    You appear to be a new member on Mark's forum here. I'm curious about how you found this thread that I can't find without my bookmark.

    I'm not complaining about it though, this web site appears...
  13. Thanks. That's great. You must have a good...

    Thanks. That's great. You must have a good sized tub. Neither of us can fit into our one little bath tub so that we can lie down and we have never used it in the 15 years that we have lived in our...
  14. What are you using to hold the water?

    What are you using to hold the water?

    Sometimes, while in my personal wind tunnel when the predawn air is 60 degrees or a little more I wet my skin with water cooled overnight in the refrigerator. As you guys have noted, it kicks it up...

    This is a common complaint with low carb diets where salt and minerals are excreted a little more readily than on diets with more carbs. Several low carb docs have written that they prescribe...

    A focus upon focus
    without it's hocus pocus
    the river of shiver
    that knows no giver
    watches calmly the rivers run.
    Look out! Here's another one!
  18. That's interesting. The book's concept sounds...

    That's interesting. The book's concept sounds worthy but I came to view cold exposure as the finest personal discipline that I have ever undertaken only *after* having tried it for "fearful and...

    I use two 20 inch fans about a foot away from my feet pointed up at me in front and back which delivers the 15 mph air stream to every square inch of epidermis except for the top of my head. The...

    You might consider adding a little wind chill to your cold water treatments.
    I once sat in the air stream inside the house at 66 degrees for an hour and 20 minutes before I had to stop with...

    I have had the same experience with IF and cold. I have not been using water for the cold, however. The predawn air here is quite cool all year so that my two 20 inch high velocity fans give me...
