How to Stack Cold Water, Sauna and Breathing to Accelerate Your Metabolism – Susanna Soeberg, Ph.D. : 1014
Manage episode 353421557 series 1412085
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…Susanna Soeberg, Ph.D., a Danish researcher, international scientist and expert in cold and heat therapy for health and performance, explains how you can harness the massive benefits of cold water immersion (winter swimming), sauna, breathing, and your metabolism.
When it comes to biohacking, a few things rise to the top and make a pretty big difference in your body and brain. Through her research, Susanna discovered the minimum threshold of cold and heat exposure for health benefits. We get right into that on the show. She also works with functional breathing during cold environmental conditions and cold water immersion, especially winter swimming.
Have you been considering this biohack for awhile? Baby steps won’t get you there—prepare to go all-in with the cold. “You could take cold showers, for sure,” Susanna says, “but it's not going to activate your parasympathetic nervous system in the same way as submerging yourself into cold water.”
Earning a Ph.D. in metabolism at the University of Copenhagen set her on course to focus her expertise on ways metabolism works for and against you—and what you can do to improve your metabolic profile. She researches obesity, Type 2 diabetes and insulin management, as well as how brown and white adipose tissue (fat) function differently within the human body.
In Susanna’s new book, “Winter Swimming: The Nordic Way Towards a Healthier and Happier Life,” she describes the benefits of winter swimming and cold water immersion on your physiology, mental health, and capacity for resilience.
