Constantly suffering from colds is a reason enough to strengthen your immune system, and professor Sergei Bubnovskiy from Moscow has an innovating new technique that can do it.
According to the professor, soaking your legs in an ice-cold bath for 10-15 seconds after coming home from work can reinforce your immune system and prepare it for the fight against colds and the flu!
Follow these steps:
Take a basin and fill it with cold water. Add as much ice as you can and next soak your feet in the cold water for 10-15 seconds.
Do this technique every night before going to bed in order to improve your health. People with weak immune system will find this method quite beneficial. They need to soak their feet in cold water every 4 hours.
A study conducted at the University of Virginia discovered that the icy water rejuvenates the norepinephrine formation, which is a hormone like adrenaline.
