  2. Dr. Rhonda awesome info as usual . It seems like the colder the temperature , the less time you would have to spend in it to get results . , but @ 24:39 she said if your in less colder water you don't have to stay in as long. Am I misunderstanding something ? Earlier , it seemed like she said , the colder the water the less time you would have to be exposed.

  3. Lets say hypothetically ( since i don't know) if i do not have the gene variant where FOX03 is activated all the time, do i then need to go into the sauna or expose myself to other types of "stressors" to get the gene to activate at all? or is it activated in other types of situations in life other than stressors?

    Big hug to dr Rhonda from Sweden ! <3

  4. …And what dynorphin does, it activates dinosaurs in your brain and you feel really hot leading to reduced stress and …Btw Sauna and then freezing cold shower work best

  5. Great video! I started using a infrared sauna 3 months ago and felt the effects after the first session. I suffer from anxiety/depression and it helped more than anything I've ever tried. Feel like I got my life back honestly.
