This is a highly debated recovery method.
The idea behind ice baths is, that reduces recovery time after heavy training loads, reduces muscle soreness and inflammation. It is also hypothesise that if you use the Wif Hof breathing method during an ice bath you can improve your immune system, sex hormone and brain function.
However as I said it is a highly debated topic. Its is also believed that you can be at risk of hypothermia, shock and sudden death. Also it has been reported that ice baths do not give any recover benefits and that it's just a placebo effect.
But here's the thing an effect is an effect. It is had been documented that even if it is a placebo it can still give a positive or negative physiological result on the body.
So even if ice bath are only a placebo effect it's still creating a positive physiological result on that body.
For what it worth I am pro Ice bath, I have come to this conclusion after doing reading over the years and saying Ice baths are useless, then going through a heavy training period an struggling to recover. I good friend of mine @adampople convinced me to try it. I bitched and moaned the whole way through, but the recovery results were amazing. So from personal experience and my own reading I do believe they work. Even though to this day I still dont enjoy doing them. #training#FitFam#recovery#icebath#gaintrain

Today I am grateful that I finally have some energy 🤩 The physical healing process is a difficult one, and it can wreak havoc on our emotional health too. I, for one, have been on an emotional rollercoaster for the past week or so. Feeling sad that I can’t help my husband look after our children, sad that I can’t go to the parties we’ve missed out on since my surgery, sad that I can’t clean my home, sad that I can’t cook dinners, sad that I can’t go to gym or walk the dog! And today I realise how silly that is! I should be grateful that my surgeon was so skilled! I should be grateful that my husband is able to hold the fort while I am healing! I should be grateful that I am surrounded by amazing family and friends who support and care for me! I have so much to be thankful for. And today I am so, so thankful 💞 have gratitude everyday and watch your life change #grateful#gratitude#begrateful#mediumshipreadings#mediumship#psychicreadings#psychic#psychicmedium#happiness#healing#endometriosis#endometriosissurgery#recovery#healingwithcrystals#gettingbetter#alwaysgrateful#thankful
Hallo ihr lieben ♥
Meine Halsschmerzen sind echt 10mal besser geworden! Habe gestern Abend noch mit Schwarzkümmelöl gegurgelt und das bewirkt echt wahre Wunder. Kann ich jedem, mit ner Erkältung, ans Herz legen.
Gegessen habe ich zum Frühstück "süße Polenta" (1. Bild) aber das war leider nicht ganz so lecker, dazu gab es 2 Knäckebrote und einen Shake. Zu meiner warmen Mahlzeit habe ich noch einen kleinen Salat gegessen und dann gab es noch Quark mit einem Apfel und 1/2 Pfirsich und Leinsamen etc.
Taken by my bestie last autumn. I am looking forward to more autumn adventures this year! Starting with my new home! #newbeginnings

In November 2019, as part of our continued growth we will be receiving a brand new 3T scanner which brings a number of benefits including: - improved image quality
- shorter examination times due to increased efficiency
- a more pleasant patient experience, since the shorter size of the magnet bore relieves the sense of confinement patients associate with most MRI scanners
- reduced risk of distorted images
At The Global Clinic we provide a range of diagnostic services including MRI, X-Ray, Ultrasound and Shockwave.
Our services are provided via NHS and Private Appointments and you can #justaskyourgp for a referral to The Global Clinic or call us on 01603 812266 for more information.
I will get back to regular posting soon🌥

Krankenhaus ist nicht immer schön aber manchmal muss es sein. In den Sommerferien ging es mit mir so den Berg runter dass ich ins Krankenhaus musste. Ich war da ungefähr 4, 5 Wochen und darft jetzt erstmal für 2 Wochen raus....
ABER jetzt zu meinem Blog❤️
Ich möchte hier eine Art Reisetagebuch erstellen von meinen Reisen auf denen ich war und auf die ich noch gehen werde. Ich würde gerne mit meiner London Reise anfangen und einfach immer wieder Bilder chronologisch posten und dazu Reiseberichte schreiben💕🌍 #traveler#adventuretime#glutenfrei#zöliakie#travel#journeyblog#anorexia#healingquotes#fight#recovery#ed#takeyourtime
《17 September '19》
Es tut mir leid
Ich war mal wieder viel zu schwach
Es war das selbe Spiel wie sonst
Fiel ein weiteres Mal herab
Ich hab gelogen, weil es schon zu spät war
Zu spät war mich abzuhalten
Der Schalter war längst schon wieder umgelegt
Ich war weit weg von mir
Meine Gedanken hatten übernommen
Sie haben wieder mal gewonnen
Hab die Grenze wieder verpasst
Den Wendepunkt übersehen
Habe mich mit Stress betäubt
Bis alles wieder zerbrach
Depression can look like the 1st photo and feel like the 2nd.
Forget what I say... Colors go gray like the thoughts in my head. Try to stay afloat but I sink in my bed.
Confront the question. Who am I?
I wish the weight that I carry was more than imaginary. The pieces don't fit, this puzzles all wrong. The record player plays the same broken song. I hang on so tight I am afraid to fall but to be truly free I need to let go. Let go. Just let go. The ground catches up, it hits me in my face then I break through the surface and fall into space. I'm lost. I feel so alone in a room full of drones. Hey satellite bring home. Or take me away. I feel like I don't belong. I feel like I can't stay. I feel like what's right is what's wrong. I feel like I'm afraid to feel. I don't know. Let go. Just let go. Forget what I say.
Triple exercise day !!!
This morning I woke up at 5:40 and got dressed and headed straight to my strength session. Today was a little bit different. We had a 10 minute ab workout before the session started and then smashed a good workout. I went to @einsteins251 for the regular Tuesday morning coffee with the bears group. After resting for about an hour I then decided to get my indoor bike session out the way. The next 90 minutes became seriously sweaty. However it’s the first time i have actually enjoyed my KICKR session. Post ride I met with a few friends for brunch back at @einsteins251 round 2 as I was starving. I then smashed this beautiful plate of food. I wish I could eat this everyday !!!!! Post brunch I then went and headed out on my 12km slow HR run. This run felt like it was going forever but I was lucky the sun was up and it was a beautiful run. I was super excited to keep my heart rate so low !!!
The rest of the evening was spent working with Will and reading. Preparing for tomorrow!!

PART 1. I tried to smile for the photos, but it was excruciatingly hard. Especially when you eat three tomatoes with one can of tuna and then you go out hiking on a mountain.
I want to share my struggles and journey with the world in order to help the ones who, like me, are consumed by an eating disorder.
And yes, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and orthorexia are all deadly conditions, and guys can get them too.
In the photos that you see I was consuming less than 1200 calories a day, with activity levels that could be sustained (healthily) by an intake that should have been at least the exact double.
These were taken less than two weeks ago, but my disease emerged much, much earlier.
It all started with binge eating episodes during the Christmas break. You know, all of the pastries, sweets, wonderful homemade pasta and all the Christmas goodies. My mind, clearly worried, started to have some self image issues. Ok then, let's follow along. In less than a month I was bingeing and then purging with continuous, strenuous exercise. Welcome to one of the mansions of bulimia.
But EDs are much more. They mutate and adapt. They grow with your fear, and they become all that you can think of.
The next step was restricting food groups, such as carbs. Now not only the food was something to get rid of, but there were also entire food groups and items that couldn't even been touched. And the complete avoidance was incredibly easy to perform.
That's what pushed me to the next level. The first week of April I went completely zero-food. I was crafting the most marvellous excuses in order to avoid lunches and dinners, and I completely emptied my kitchen (I was living alone at that time for 4 days straight in a week). And I felt incredible. Finally I was able to control, to say no. With months passing however, I couldn't keep up with all the excuses. So I started to hide the food, manage portions when nobody else was watching, and throwing away excesses or foods that could lead to a mere enjoyment.
Out of sight, out of mind.
I'll continue in part 2. #anorexia#eatingdisorders#transformationtuesday#recovery#health#mystory#wellbeing#journey#help
Please don’t blame yourself. Don’t be too hard on yourself, I hope you treat your mind and body as a friend. Show compassion and be kind. It’s been said, but we are human. You can’t change what’s been done, but you can change your outlook and your future. Love yourself 💓 (📸: @alaskaonhulu 🎨:selfcare_alaska)
Die Verantwortung für unser Wohlbefinden tragen wir selbst.
Doch du darfst dir dabei Unterstützung suchen. 💪
Jeder Mensch ist im Rahmen seiner eigenen Möglichkeiten dafür verantwortlich, die Verantwortung für sein (seelisches) Wohlbefinden zu übernehmen.
Das heißt jedoch nicht, dass wir mit dieser Aufgabe alleine bleiben müssen. Wir dürfen uns dabei Unterstützung suchen!
Menschen sind soziale Wesen und wir gedeihen am besten in Verbindung mit anderen Menschen. 🤗 Also such dir Verbindung und Unterstützung! Nicht, damit dir jemand deine Verantwortung abnimmt, sondern dass ihr euch bei dieser Aufgabe begleiten könnt. 💛
To say that substance abuse is a problem in Nigeria is to state the obvious. It is clearly evident from the number of people requesting rehab programs either for themselves or their loved ones. Yet the one thing we must never forget is that addiction does not discriminate. There are people from every walk of life, every ethnic group, and every age demographic in desperate need of help.
Woken up feeling rough as anything - and if there is one thing I know detrimentally affects my mental health - it is poor physical health.
Before I knew myself and my body I would have just pushed through and ‘ignored the signs’ - thinking I could distract myself by becoming more and more busy - in addition to doing anything to avoid the guilt of a day out the office.
I’m learning more about my body and mind everyday - and today is dedicated to rest and recovery.
It’s no run or cycle - but I will aim to get some fresh air and get a 5K walk in if feeling up to it later. I’ve had better days but I’ve also had a lot worse and am in a better place to look after myself as a result.
Happy Tuesday all and take care of yourselves 🙏🏻💚

What a difference a year makes! Left: bruised, broken, in constant pain, devastated that I couldn’t tie my own shoes let alone lift a barbell, definitely struggling mentally and feeling very alone in all of it. Right: getting stronger, braver, grateful to move painfree 90% of the time, training for my long term health, feeling supported and confident, mentally in a very very different place. I have the best friends, the best family and the absolute best coach in @adroitfit#thankyou#adroitarmy

💪 RECOVERY TIP 💪 from PT @brayden_webb_
After a hard workout, your body is looking to replenish your glycogen stores. This means CARBS! Preferably the FAST-ABSORBING type 🥔🍌
Having carbs post workout helps your body return from the sympathetic (fight or flight) to the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system - meaning your gains are in the right hands 😉
Have any more questions? Ask them to Brayden on 0411812761 or @brayden_webb_ 😍
THIS IS TRUE! And... what’s also important is the way you express your ~valid~ emotions.
For example, if you’re feeling angry, the challenge is effectively expressing an intense negative emotion
Remember, anger does not equal yelling, hitting, or breaking something - those are behaviors.
Effectively communicating to your partner that you feel angry might look something like “I’m feeling angry because I wanted to spend time with you this weekend but I wasn’t able to do that because you had to work”
Saying something like this lets them know what’s going on for you in a non-aggressive and direct way. Plus, your partner will likely feel less defensive when they respond to you.
Additionally, what might be helpful is really asking yourself what you hope to gain from letting your partner know how you feel. Is it because you want to feel heard? Feel respected? Feel important?
Whatever it might be, it’s important to know how you feel and what you hope to gain from letting your partner know @alexpack.therapy
hi friends 👋🏻 just a gentle reminder for you ✨ you are not alone in this ❤️ sending lots of light your way!💌

Just because mental health symptoms are not verbally expressed, might cause the body to find a way to show you that you’re feeling a certain way. Body & mind are connected. Be aware of your trigger points so you can address them. #selflove 💚💚
