If you’re someone that suffers from the flu and colds frequently, then this is a red flag that your immune system needs to be strengthened in order to avoid further health complications and deadly conditions.
Popular Russian doctor by the name of Sergei Bubnovkiy claims that the immune system of a human being can be boosted at an incredible rate, and all you have to do is soak your legs in ice cold water for 10-15 seconds on a daily basis. Dr. Sergei also claims that this will help prevent flu and colds.
You should start off by filling a basin with cold water, and add ice in it. The more ice you add to the water, the better the treatment and the more enhanced your immune system will become. Once done, put your feet in the water and soak them for 10-15 seconds. The treatment has to be done before going to sleep.
In case your immune system is too weak, repeat this procedure every 4 hours.
A study has also been conducted at the University of Virginia, and it found that the icy water stimulates the production of norepinephrine, a hormone which plays a huge part in strengthening our immune system.
Other benefits of soaking your feet in ice cold water are:
