It's pretty steamy out here in South China at the moment, and I've been experimenting with cold showers. I start off with a warm one then towards the end flick the switch to cold... You don't have to go super-cold at first, just unpleasantly tepid will do. Anyway, this morning I was feeling chilled but really tired, didn't want to do anything, just had a hot/cold shower, stayed under the cold water for only 2 minutes but wow! Instant energy, and the feeling hasn't left. So I googled it and found a lot of links on it, really interesting! It's actually rated as a really powerful cure in many cultures, recommended by everyone from Yogis to Samurais.

Wow, this dude recommends 7 cycles of Hot/Cold, says it's incredibly powerful

Plenty more info out there, David Wolfe talked about it on his broadcast recently.

For what it is worth, stick your face under the shower stream and switch from hot to cold every few minutes, getting a little hotter and a littler colder as you can tolerate it. Use your feet to turn the knobs if you need to. It is hands down the best facial possible: gone are the black heads, white heads, and it cleans out the pores likes its nobody's business.

Thanks for the info, it was hard putting my head under there the first few times..... It's amazing that these simple, powerful little tricks are not common knowledge
