Lifestyle & Recovery Center

The Lifestyle & Recovery Center covers a wide variety of topics which include information about food and farming, water, supplements, lifestyle organization, and the benefits of using thermal stress via dry sauna and cold immersion, breath work and recovery. Additionally we discuss active exercise techniques and modalities that can aid in one’s recovery from a stressful week of travel or gym workout. For example, circulatory and respiratory gymnastics (exercises). Within this section, we have a sub-section we call the Training Table, which covers topics such as cooking, shopping, and nutrition.

Sweating in the sauna is good and can benefit the heart and the brain, according to the People’s Pharmacy and two studies from Finland..

A decades-long study of more than 2,000 middle-aged men found that those who spent more time in the sauna were less likely to have a fatal heart attack. (JAMA Internal Medicine, April 2015). In addition, men visiting a sauna four times a week were less likely to develop dementia than those who went only once a week. (Age and Ageing, Dec. 8, 2016).

Those conducting these studies note that blood pressure and heart function improve after a sauna. Relaxation, improved blood-vessel-flexibility and lower inflammation may account for the heart and brain benefits.

To function properly and avoid dehydration, the human body requires regular water intake. The amount depends on various factors that include the level of activity, temperature and humidity. Most of the water humans take in is through foods and beverages other than pure water, but this comes at a cost. The body has to break down the foods in order to extract the water for use.

Drinking water is a more efficient and practical way of hydrating the body. The water is transported immediately to the tissues where it can be utilized.

The human body is comprised of up to 70 percent water, and over 80 percent of the brain is made up of water. The effects of dehydration on the overall state of the body can be problematic and at times life threatening. Several physiological roles of water in the body include: water serves as a transportation system, water is a lubricant, water regulates body temperature, and water participates in many biological reactions.
