Cold packs versus baths

    I've been making radical improvements to my diet, and working my way into CT. I've tried a couple of baths, but I am finding that getting in a tepid bath, cooling it down enough, etc., and keeping it separated, time-wise, from my normal slightly-warm shower, is eating up a lot of time that I don't have due to some additional commuting I have to do.

    So I thinking about multi-tasking. I've used several frozen cold packs on my abdomen, lower tummy and tops of thighs when I am at my desk, or sitting in the living room, and I can get a nice long exposure that way, and my skin gets cold and numb, and no signs of any damage to epidermis.

    I am thinking it is not as good as cold water immersion, but I am wondering how inferior it is. Is what I am doing good enough, if I am doing it every day? I seem to remember there were comments about using the cold in order to trigger skin receptors, but then I saw comments as well about cooling near the shallowest parts of the femoral artery, which would seem to indicate systemic cooling.

    Is cooling with the ice packs daily (long-term) of significant value, or am I barely making a dent compared to immersion?

    water around your skin transmits cold 24 times better than air does. Spot CT is helpful in many cases but the best way to reverse a problem or mitigate nnEMF is total immersion

    I just started doing spot CT when I don't have enough time at night to do a full bath. Like you targeting the thighs and belly. Sometimes I even do it when commuting to work but just have to be careful with the pack since the "leakproof" ones I got leak.
