Scientists say this technique has more benefits than exercise

Exercise increases inflammation in the short-term.

But in the medium to long term, exercise is usually associated with lowered inflammation.

Exercise and lower levels of chronic inflammation are associated with improved insulin sensitivity and improved blood sugar.

Heat is what leads to some of the benefits of exercise on inflammation, insulin, and blood sugar.

Scientists recently discovered that hot baths can have similar beneficial effects to exercise.

They lower inflammation and blood sugar while increasing insulin sensitivity.

The acute and chronic effects of hot water immersion on inflammation and metabolism in sedentary, overweight adults
These researchers carried out human experiments at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. They published the results in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

Smart exercise has many long-term benefits. (Smart exercise is the type of exercise that you can fully recover from.)

“Regular exercise-induced acute inflammatory responses are suggested to improve the inflammatory profile and insulin sensitivity.”

In the last decade, scientists discovered that one reason we benefit from exercise is the increase in body temperature.

“As body temperature elevations partly mediate this response, passive heating might be a viable tool to improve the inflammatory profile.”

The researchers set out to see the effect of increasing body temperature with hot baths.

“This study investigated the acute and chronic effects of hot water immersion on inflammatory and metabolic markers.”

They initially recruited 10 overweight men for the study.

“Ten sedentary, overweight males (BMI: 31) were immersed in water.”

In the first part of the experiment, the researchers compared the effect of one hour-long bath against resting at room temperature.

One hot bath increased the amount of interleukin-6 circulating in the blood.

“Plasma interleukin-6 concentrations were higher immediately following hot water immersion compared to ambient temperature.”

Interleukin-6 is an interesting protein.

It increases inflammation in the short term. But interleukin-6 then quickly triggers an anti-inflammatory process that lowers inflammation.

Interleukin-6 ends up being anti-inflammatory.

Scientists believe that exercise increases interleukin-6.

They also believe that it is one of the main anti-inflammatory mediators of exercise.

In the second series of experiments, they gave the men 10 hot baths over the space of two weeks.

“Thereafter, participants underwent a 2-week intervention period, consisting of 10 hot water immersion sessions.”

They recruited eight more high-BMI men.

And they kept those men at room temperature, slightly colder than the baths, during the sessions.

“Eight BMI-matched participants (BMI: 30) were included as controls.”

After the two-week trial of 10 hot baths, the men who received the bath therapy had significant improvements.

Hot baths led to lower fasting blood sugar levels.

“In contrast to resting, fasting glucose concentration was lowered after the hot bath protocol.”

Average blood sugar levels decreased from 4.44 to 3.98 on average.

Their insulin levels also went down.

“In contrast to resting, insulin concentrations were lowered after the hot bath immersion sessions.”

Insulin dropped from an average of 68 to an average of 55.

So these researchers have indeed discovered a new way to improve blood sugar metabolism.

“The reductions in fasting glucose and insulin concentrations suggest that hot water immersion may serve as a tool to improve glucose metabolism.”

The results may be due to an anti-inflammatory effect caused by increasing interleukin-6.

During the trial, the men sat up to their necks in water kept at 102-degree Fahrenheit for 60 minutes.

Some of the men reported some discomfort during the trial.

This was due to the temperature and sitting in the same position for so long.

But the participants were able to persist.

This technique could be very useful for people who cannot exercise for one reason or another.

Other studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of raising body temperature.

Recently, another trial used infrared light to increased body temperature and decrease symptoms of depression.

All across the globe, people use sweat lodges and saunas to improve health – for thousands of years we’ve been doing this. 

You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing health-related problems.

—-Important Message About Inflammation—-

This natural protocol targets the true cause of inflammation in the body…

The true cause of inflammation may surprise you…

Did you know inflammation starts in the gut?

It’s true – toxins that leak through the gut wall cause chronic, widespread inflammation all over the body.

Here’s what a leaky gut looks like:

And here’s what a tight gut looks like:

So the stronger and tighter your gut is, the less inflammation you’ll have in your body.

And my simple protocol naturally strengthens men’s guts, so toxins can’t leak through and cause widespread inflammation.

Here’s my simple, natural protocol for men that banishes chronic inflammation forever (free to you today).
