How can you use heat therapy to improve your physical and mental health?

We’ve talked a lot on this show about the therapeutic benefits of cold therapy. But what about the opposite? Can you use heat therapy to help improve not just your physical and mental health, but your memory, sleep, and overall cognitive performance?

I’m excited to welcome Dr. Susanna Søberg back on our show today. As the Founder of the Søberg Institute and the Thermalist Cure, Dr. Søberg is a leading international scientist and expert on cold and hot therapy. She’s also the author of the book, Winter Swimming: The Nordic Way Towards a Healthier and Happier Life.

There is a lot of research on what happens when you expose your body to heat. It can improve your immune system, strengthen your cardiovascular system, reduce insomnia and so much more. Listen in as Dr. Søberg reveals simple protocols you can use to incorporate heat therapy into your routine to unlock better health and longevity.

Be sure to watch our last episode with Dr. Søberg, here, as she goes over the incredible benefits of cold therapy, and how you can combine both hot and cold therapeutic protocols for a longer, healthier life.
