How was your CT today?

    Just finished 37´beginning 10ºC (50f) and finishing at 13.8 (average 11.9), after devouring 0,5kg wild raw alaskan salmon (and 2nd day taking bitter melon powder). I think it is my new PR. My objective is to reach 45´at 10C/50F by february. As much as I hate to say it... I think the cold is being a game changer for me. More so than the sun. I ´m feeling better right now at the 43 latitude than during summer... Is it cause of I´ve just being more time in this quantum health path or cause I just do better in cold+ketosis? I need to meditate on that (and maybe get some 23andme testing for mitochondrial haplotype?)

    By the way, do you find it is always better to use compression clothing while doing CT, or only in the beginning? I used it a while ago but I am pondering using it again.

    I still fear the cold pretty much..damm! hehe. One thing I find really useful is listening some motivating music beforehand. Keep it up

    I would very much fear CT if I did it in any environment over 50 micros, and it's probably why so many people have side effects and difficulty doing it.

    With dirty electricity over 50 mV you mean? Yeah I need to get a meter for that. Most environemnts suck

    Just finished a 52´begining at 9 celsius and finishing at 13. New PR for me. I had my feet and hands outside for most of the time (42´) and I´m feeling that it allows me to stay a bit longer.

    Shit I feel pretty high!! I only fear the cold before getting inside. After the initial shock I feel in heaven in 5 seconds. 20 first minutes are a blessing. 10´are ok and then it gets slightly uncomfortable. But I´m feeling good benefits... energy and libido go pretty high for the day.

    I want to keep consistent with this. I want to keep progressing though not sure what´s best. Options:
    -Doing every single day (I´m doing 4-5 a week average)
    -More time
    -Less temp
    -Getting feets and hands inside all time
    -Using compression clothing

    I´m inclined to put in all of my body I can (tub is small so some acrobatics are needed), lower temps to 7-8 celsius (upper 40´s F) and maybe using some compression. Basically because of time constraints. Also planning to get into the river if it is not flooded. It should be freezing.

    One question: What´s better, getting into 7celsius/ upper 40´s F river or 12-13 celsius ocean (55F). Probably it´s a tricky question and the answer is n=1... I´d say the first provided you are a bit adapted and can stay some decent time inside...

    Lots of improvement and learning ahead

    Nope, micros or mics is short for microwaves. Blood coagulation's the last thing you want when doing CT.

    I am walking in -40 temps. wearing -20 clothes. I observe that I am naturally more cold adapted.... than in the past.

    Highly recommend doing two 30 minute CT sessions a day, early morning and late afternoon with an hour of SG right before the latter.

    Been doing CT for 6 month now and today did it at 5C for 10mins this morning. Lowest I got :) The skin on my chest and my upper forearm are kinda red when I got out.

    Can I ask for some help or advice?

    I am very cold intolerant - eg. it's 20ºC in my house right now and I'm numb up to the mid-calf area and all the skin on my arms and legs is cold to the touch. Apparently fat isn't such a great insulator as all that...

    With cold showers, I can only bear it at all when I start very hot, like after half hour naked in the hot sun. But after a month of trying it just isn't getting any easier. I go white, then start to go blue and find 2mins a struggle. My husband seems to only find the first minute or so horrible but he goes red. Even our 8 year old can do 10 mins no problem (and likes to whenever he needs to feel superior to us wimps). I tried plunging my face in very cold water but it makes me hyperventilate straight away and then I get a headache and feel sick, so I'm in a bit of despair about how to get better at this. But I really want to!

    If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate your help!

    My mitochondrial haplotype is X2b but it was one that Jack didn't mention, so I'm not sure if I'm more of a light girl than a cold one and I should focus on that more or if I should try to work up heat tolerance instead. I'm not great with the heat either but I can relax into it more.

    I'd love to know if anyone else has this X2b haplotype or any ideas of what the best thing to do to work up to cold.

    Thank you everyone!

    Please start a journal in the optimal journal section and give Dr. K. more health history.

    Everyone has their own n=1. Go slow to start with.

    It sounds like you can't tolerate the cold at all right now. Just because your DH can is no indication that you can at the same level.

    Why not try the face dunks in not so cold water for now? and see how you go....

    Are you doing the leptin RX?

    What are you eating? drinking?

    what is your nnEMF situation?

    Where do you live? work?

    How is your sleep? Your Libido?

    Do you have Jack's book?

    Hello Caroline!

    I do have Jack's book, working my way through it now! I'm not on the leptin rx as yet but definitely need to!

    It sounds really pathetic but I'm getting used to cold showering just below my knee without distress. I'll try to see how I get on with face dunking, that's a good idea, thank you.

    I live in the middle of the UK and work only intermittently. I have a stressful home life over all and so I'm often dis-regulated with regard to sleep, eating etc. even though I eat pretty clean. I use wired internet and only use my phone rarely, the rest of the time it's in a faraday box. But of course I'm suburban, so the 5G masts are now outside our door.

    Thanks for your help!

    Have you done a 23&me test?

    Ocean temp today 4 deg F higher than the average max temp for this time of year. Global warming's diminishing my CT.

    Dunno if 59.5 deg is even worth it rn smh.

    Is (human) global warming a big thing in your opinion?

    Yesterday I got into the coldest water in my life, 7 celsius/45 farenheit, somehow managed half hour even enjoying at times. Someone here with experience in "deep CT" has any general recommendations? I wanna go lower this winter... I feel good afterwars, noticeable better erections temporarily hmm... and good energy with shitty weather.

    I know going lower than 10C/50F we should proceed with caution, but I feel it s time for me to push lower
