If you find yourself constantly suffering from the flu or any colds, then that just means one thing: you immune system is weak and needs a serious boosting.
Everyone has had a weakened immune system at some point or another, but some people seem to constantly have a low immunity.
That’s why they need a way to strengthen it in order to prevent any other health-related complications.
A famous Russian doctor by the name of Sergey Bubnovkiy, one can easily boost their immune system by using a very simple trick: soaking your feet in ice-cold water!
It doesn’t have to be for long, merely 10-15 seconds a day will get the job done.
Dr. Bubnovkiy also claims that such a method will also prevent any colds or flu from knocking on your door.
All you need to do is fill a basin you have at home with cold water, and add as much ice as you can gather from your freezer. The more ice you add in the basin, the better.
Your next step should be clear – just place your feet in the basin and keep them there for a total of 10 to 15 seconds.
For best results, you should do this every night before going to bed.
But if you feel your immune system is super weak, you can repeat this every four hours.
The University of Virginia had conducted a recent study in which they discovered that icy water can stimulate the production of norepinephrine.
This is a natural hormone, and it plays a very important role in strengthening the immune system.
