Winter is Coming: Cold Therapy

Several people have requested this topic and I glossed over it a bit in a recent newsletter, but also wanted to share the resources I gathered. Admittedly, I haven’t had time to dig into all of these articles, but I’ve shared my thoughts in bits and pieces other places — including on tech toys (which I admittedly love) and naturally incurred environmental / seasonal exposure.

So, this is mostly a catalog of “quick” resources I pooled rather than my usual dialogue and diving into each study. Hopeful you can find a category to suit your interests; or you know, start doing some digging on your own ;)

Ice Bath / Recovery:


Immune System:

Adipose (fat) Tissue:
