Whole Body Cryotherapy for CT?

    Dr. Kruse, since CT discussion began I've been wanting your opinion on whether cryotherapy would be an effective alternative to ice baths (which are not possible where I'm living) for achieving cold adaptation. The chambers cool the body (except head and hands) with super cooled mist at -130C (32F) or lower for 3 minutes. I read that Dr. Oz endorses it for treating pain, and sports teams are using it to aid recovery. There is a place here that offers sessions. Do you think regular sessions could produce results similar to ice baths and is there a frequency you would recommend?

    Thanks so much, Sue

    I can not give my stamp of approval to this method yet because it needs to be reconciled with how our nervous systems perceive that cold......and we are not designed to deal with that kinda cold.
