In this video, we’re going to talk about the incredible benefits of heat therapy.

If you recently created an injury where there’s inflammation, and you put heat on it, it’s going to make it worse. In that situation, you need to use cold therapy. 

Heat therapy is really good for chronic conditions—especially chronic injuries. 

Examples of heat therapy:

• Hot shower
• Steam room
• Sauna
• Jacuzzi 
• Infrared 
• Contrast bath therapy (alternating cold and heat) 

9 Benefits of heat therapy:

1. Decreases arthritis
2. Decreases muscle spasm
3. Decreases muscle pain
4. Decreases muscle inflammation
5. Decreases pain in general
6. Decreases waste/CO2
7. Increases O2 – Blood flow
8. Decreases stiffness
9. Increases recovery 

Why take hot showers?
There are certain genes that kick in when you add heat or cold, and they do different things. 

Heat shock protein:

• Responds to stress
• Heat
• Oxidative stress
• Heavy metals 
• Infection

Heat shock protein is a protein that responds to a certain amount of stress and then causes the body to adapt and do better. Heat shock protein actually protects the cell against misfolding. 

Many chronic diseases have the accumulation of certain proteins that are non-functional and clog up function. Heat therapy can help prevent this from happening. When you add intermittent fasting, your body goes through autophagy, which cleans up the misfolded proteins.
