The bitter cold and extreme weather makes winter prime time for falling victim to a cold or the flu. If you're like most of us, you don't have time to get sick. Like so many other ailments, stress is often as the core cause of acquiring a cold or virus.
Cold winter temperatures don't hold more cold and flu viruses and bacteria. Contrary to popular belief, there isn't technically a season where cold and flu viruses are more present. What makes us more susceptible to falling victim to a cold or the flu in the winter is that the stress of the season weakens our body.
Extreme temperatures, holiday obligations, recycling of unclean inside air, and extra responsibilities add stress to our daily lives. When we get stressed, our immune system weakens and is unable to fight off the bacteria and viruses that cause illness. Ultimately, it's stress that causes illness.
To combat that stress on our bodies, it's important that we take the time to reset. A session on a float tank is a treat to our immune systems. The weightlessness allows our body to completely relax in a way no other treatment can provide. The Epsom salt in the solution, according to some doctors, aids in detoxing the body and improves white blood cell count. Those white blood cells help protect the body from the invaders that cause colds and flus.
Protect yourself and empower yourself to fight the cold and flu this winter by booking a float session.
