    the bains method is not quite what I am looking at though. I read that thread, and it is actually to "softcore" for me. I am wondering if anyone does full cold showers or baths? On a related note-do you see effects beyond just the two hours?

    Well my newfound cold hardiness is a consistent improvement and that's pretty remarkable as i was previously one of the most cold sensitive people i know. Not that i'm as cold hardy as some men i see out in t-shirts and shorts in cold weather but i've seen a marked improvement.

    Apart from Asklipia, this is where i learned about cold therapy:

    Also Mark Sisson writes clearly about it:

    I would think really sick people would not respond well to serious cold therapy although they may benefit from bains derivatifs.I think your adrenal system has to be fairly functional before you try anything more than bains.
