Jen Pfleghaar, DO, FACEP

Hi, it is Dr. Jen. So I want to talk about something. Fine, which is cold therapy and your thyroid health. So is it good? Is it bad? And what are the studies show? So what is cold water immersion? So cold water immersion is actually cooling your body down with water. So most of the studies are based on cold water swimming, which is winter swimming in different areas, different countries. It is a practice where people go out in the cold water. So what it is, is usually from the neck down, you are submerged, but you can also get the same kind of benefits with taking a cold shower. You can also do cryotherapy, even though the studies are a little bit different and based on cold water, swimming with that. So there are a lot of different benefits, such as reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and improving muscle recovery and performance. And also cold exposure causes a prolonged release of dopamine. So dopamine is a chemical that is mainly found in your brain, that is going to help with motivation, feeling good, feeling happy right? And sometimes if we have thyroid autoimmune problems going on, we, our mood is kind of frustrated, right? And not motivated, but this is really helpful.
