  1. (non native English speaker) Dear Dr. Rhonda Patrick, i've never heard you mentioning the use of a sauna whisk before? As a frequent sauna user myself, it's an essential part of my sweat session. Did you ever consider using it yourself? For me it takes the session to a 'higher level'. Thank you for your great work and dedication. Love your channel. Grts from Belgium

  2. I love saunas, and do them three or four times a week. But I loathe cold. I moved from the north to the south to avoid cold. But I often do swim before the sauna which cools me a little (and I dislike that, too.) If avoiding cold shortens my life, so be it.

  3. I wish you would do a review paper that brings all of this together. Your talks provide so many in-roads to these topics it would be valuable to be able to have a referenced written summary to refer back to without having to always go to the primary papers, particularly for the non-expert. Thank you for all your work.

    PS: or write a book perhaps!

  4. Your videos are really great, thank you! Love Dr Rhonda Patrick. This video is very difficult to listen to. Glad this info is available elsewhere. Applaud the effort you made to provide this info to your subscribers however anyone interested in hormesis May want to watch Patrick on her channel.

  5. Wow. The relationship between cold exposure, mitochondrial genesis, norepinephrine, and efficiency of oxygen use is fascinating.

  6. I have tendinitis/tendinosis and have been using sauna 30 minutes at a time, 2-3 times a week. Will this help heal the injury? Love your presentations and videos. I have been binge watching them, and watching them multiple times!😀

  7. Funny how the sun's UV rays are bad for you and the cold is good for you, since the sun is the reason we exist at all and the cold is correlated to historical population collapses. Just thought it was an ironic dynamic.
