Ice bath

Ice baths might be good for your mental health too. A small study found that taking a 20-minute ice bath 4 days a week improved quality of life in people with gout. They had better joint mobility and less stress, anxiety, and depression. Scientists think that exposing your body to cold water triggers a stress response and activates the nervous system. These changes can improve your mood and help you adapt to stress over time.

Cold therapy is a non-invasive treatment that deeply penetrates throughout the entire body. The cold temperatures changes the way the body’s nervous system communicates with the brain, thus helping to improve your health. Cold water immersion is a powerful therapeutic tool to help treat people with depression and other mental conditions.

Depression affects a large majority of people around the world. According to the World Health Organization, more than 260 million people are affected by depression. This, along with other mental conditions, can alter our mood and the way we reason on a daily basis.

Cold therapy is a time-tested practice that has been shown to aid in the recovery of various health conditions. In recent years, cold therapy has been used to help treat depression and mood disorders. Some cold therapy treatments include cold water immersion (ice bath, cold water showers, hydrotherapy) and surface-level cryotherapy ice chambers.

One study was done on a woman diagnosed with depression since the age of 17 and was treatment-resistant (to fluoxetine). By age 24, she wanted to be drug-free following the birth of her child. She thus resorted to cold water swims, which improved her mood immediately after each swim.

Hydrotherapy is an effective method for treating depression and elevating mood. Cold showers and ice baths, for example, can create a “shock” effect on the body. This process activates electrical nerve impulses that extend from the brain to the nervous system. It has been shown to mimic similar effects as antidepressants. This is why water exposure is so prevalent in treating mood disorders and depression.
