In case you are among those persons who frequently suffer from colds and flu, you must immediately strengthen the immune system in order to avoid further complications and health issues.
According to one very popular Russian doctor, Dr. Sergei Bubnovkiy, the immune system is going to be significantly boosted after you soak your legs in ice cold water for about 10-15 seconds every day. The doctor also claims that this method could also prevent the colds and flu.
Namely, you need to fill a basin with cold water, and in it add as much ice as you have, but the more you add the better.
Then, you need to put your feet in the water and keep them submerged in the ice water for around 10-15 seconds. Repeat every night before you go to sleep.
If your immune system is very weak, you should repeat this every 4 hours.
There was a recent study conducted at the University of Virginia which found that the icy water is actually stimulating the production of norepinephrine, the vital hormone for strengthening our immune system.
Moreover, the icy water offers various other health benefits, among which:
