If we are to believe corporate bottled water honchos, much of their product is pristine nature water. Au contraire–in many cases it’s merely filtered water from the tap, and around 2000 times more expensive when considering natural resources used, the manufacturing of plastic, plus distribution and advertising costs.

Extensive clinical studies from rheumatologists such as Yamauchi, Fricke and Papenfub have proven that cold therapy presents an essential gain as an important building block in a combined therapy for the treatment of rheumatic disorders. Whole body cryotherapy is also applied more and more in sport activities for its recovering and therapeutic positive efffects.
Even if you’re not game for the cold chamber, cold tub or ice bath, how about ice packs, cold spray or cold wrapping on sore joints and soft tissue right after exercise? At least consider following your post workout hot shower with a cold one.
