Cryotherapy

Have you ever tried whole body cryotherapy? I have an opportunity to do three, 3.5 minute, sessions with liquid nitrogen, not ultra cold air. The temperature can get as low as -250°F.

Did you like the effects it had on your body? Is it worth it? Thank you for any feedback or stories!!

I’d be very interested to hear how that works. Liquid nitrogen ‘burns’ the skin and is used to remove lesions and scars. I accidentally dipped my thumb into it at college (through a thermal glove) and I lost feeling in the thumb for months. If you were immersed in liquid nitrogen, I think you’d die pretty quickly.

@mayvar, this is a new one on me, but there appears to have been a few studies. Here’s a recent one :-

Where can you do this? I’m astounded tbh. You would freeze to death! Body cooling as @stumbler mentioned is a totally different process to being submerged in liquid nitrogen. I’m concerned!

Ha! I’m a scientist and I have no idea WHY I said liquid nitrogen! Oops!

I think I may try it out and report back. ….or just go to up to the northern islands at home in Norway.

Why will it help MS? It sounds like cruel and unusual punishment to me!
