  1. Super interesting! That golden retriever watching his master in the pond cracked me up…I imagine the dog thinking “are you nuts?!” LOL
    Seriously…you are braver than I. Maybe I’ll try it this summer 🥰

  2. Fascinating! Did you come across any studies regarding cold immersion combined with fasting? I have, in the past, tried cold showers after a brisk walk. I too cannot share any long term benefits besides feeling invigorated. I do practice fasting and would love to hear if fasting increases the benefits of cold immersion, or vice versa.

  3. Thanks for presenting a simple way to jump start well aging Claudia. I appreciate your sharing what you have learned.

  4. Hi Gorgeous! Wow, BRRR, that was cold! I admire your pursuit of excellent health. This is interesting and will watch again to read the studies. I’m glad you’re enjoying the experience. I don’t like
    to even swim in a cold pool, lol. Blessings, xo

  5. I admire your dedication to health experiments! Cryotherapy is so interesting and near me is a center that also offers cryotherapy facials. As for me, I’m waiting until summer to try the cold showers LOL. Keep us updated!

  6. I read a study and watched a show about “Cold plunges ” and it was fascinating. I think anti-aging is a lovely thing but I also believe embracing this time in our lives is most important. Not fearing it and doing things to ourselves that are ridiculous. I do think this cold chamber makes sense. So interesting I love IMF but I understand why you can’t. 🙌🏻🍑🧡Lisa

  7. I’m taking cold showers over a year now. I also feel invigorated and alive afterwards. In fact i always laugh! I can’t do a hot first and than the cold… I chicken out. So i just have a cold shower from the beginning to the end. The truth is i don’t look forward to it but i like how i feel afterwards! Many kisses!!!! Love you a lot!!!!

  8. @ Claudia Glows Hey Beautiful!💖I loved this, so much good information! I love my cold showers everyday, just at the end for about 1 min! 🥶 lol, I’ve tried Cryotherapy once – kinda crazy!! Nice that we can do ‘free’ cold therapy at home! Hope you’re having a great week, Lovely!🌬️🫒☀️🌼🤍XoxoCheryl

  9. Hi Claudia! Super great video! I’m wondering if my 1 1/2 hour fast walking outside all winter, down to 10 degrees( then I workout inside) would have any beneficial effects such as you mentioned. Its rather the opposite effect: starting out very cold then warming up as the miles ( usually 5 miles) finish. Thanks for that great video!! Loved it!

  10. I’ve been there done that✅. I do agree with the new energy after the cryotherapy. I did use movement a lot when I was in the session.

  11. Hi beautiful Claudia, i love your content. Its always interesting🙌🙌🙌 i grew up like that. My father used to put me , under a cold shower, since i was 4 or 5 years old. And i continued all my life. I am not doing that as much lately, i need to go back. I missed Baltic sea. It used to be just like cold shower 😝 We used to call it to open swimming season, in the Baltic sea or river, in late March, early April, as soon as ice melt. It was amazing, thank you for reminding me, i need to do that again every day. I never had cryotherapy. Need to start doing that too. And saunas yes. Russian saunas we used to have and then jump in the cold lake 😜 Have a blessed day 🙏🧡

  12. Hi gorgeous, I am happy you are here. Yes, so invigorating! Sending a big hug your way

  13. Hi Wendy, are you still doing the cryo? I agree, I had to move around quite a bit, mostly to distract myself from the discomfort 😉

  14. Hi Lorelei, thank you for your kind words. Yes, absolutely. A brisk walk in the cold not only gives you the cold exposure, but also beneficial exercise, so you are getting two benefits at once. Good job for doing so!
    And working out after is totally fine. Quite a few people take cold showers before their workout.
    Wishing you a wonderful day

  15. Hi Giedre, it is always great to hear from you. It sounds like you had a very healthy childhood and your father is quite advanced with his practices :).
    Keep us posted on how it goes, going back to cold showers.
    Sending lots of love your way and wishing you a great day

  16. That’s really interesting. Thank you. I have been having a normal shower and then standing in the shower for 30 seconds with the tap on cold. I find it hard but I’m going to perservere to 2 minutes, then 3 minutes. Might take a few months but it will be worth it. I get very light headed so hence why I am taking it slow and learning to breath properly.

  17. Hi gorgeous
    I agree, it is so nice to be able to do cold therapy at home. Glad to hear you are enjoying your cold showers
    Lots of love and a a great week to you as well

  18. You are a brave soul! I need my hot first 🙂
    I am glad to hear you feel so great after your cold showers. Lots of kisses back your way

  19. Hi Lisa, thank you for being here.
    I actually do not like the term Anti Aging. It sounds so negative and I much prefer as you put it, embracing this time in our live and living it to the fullest.

  20. Hi Debbie, I am so curious about the cryo therapy facials. If you end up doing one, please keep us posted. I need to see if we have a place around here that does it….
    Wishing you a wonderful day, thank you for being here

  21. Hi gorgeous, thank you for being here and for your very kind words. It def. takes some getting used to, but hopefully the benefits are worth it.
    I hope you are having a great week

  22. Thank you for being here. I hope the cold showers will be beneficial for you. Take your time working up to the longer amount of time, 30 sec is already great.
    Please keep us posted and have a great day

  23. Thank you for your thoughtful comment, Becky! I am very happy you are here and hope you are having a great day

  24. Hi Cynthia, thank you for being here. I did not come across studies combining cold exposure with fasting, but since both have great benefits separately, I would think that combined they can be very helpful. Wim Hof supposedly also eats one meal a day, along with his cold exposure and breathing technique.

  25. Hi gorgeous, I laughed about that as well. The dog was actually quite worried and cried the whole time his owner had his head in the water.
    Yes, give it a try this summer, it actually feels quite nice

  26. Hi Claudia ! You are very brave ! I end my morning shower with a cold rinse and have been doing that for years to wake me up , close the pores and feel invigorated , I don’t know about 3 mins though lol . I shock my system by intermittent fasting 4 days a week , that and needles / peels is as much positive abuse that I will endure these days ! Have a great week

  27. Do people who live in a colder climate (Alaska? Maine? Russia? Canada? Scandinavia?) live longer than those living in a generally moderate – warm climate due to their ongoing exposure to cold?

  28. Hi Jane, that is a great question. I am not sure and will do some research. But diet and lifestyle are huge of course as well.
    I hope you are having a wonderful week

  29. Hi Sue, you are too cute :). And it sounds like you are doing lots of wonderful things. 3 min of cold shower is not necessary and believe, it can be long.
    Good for you for IMF 4 days a week!
    I hope you are having a wonderful week, thank you for being here

  30. Interesting video, Claudia. I think we discussed cold showers from an earlier video. I haven’t committed to ending my nice warm showers with cold water yet. But I will keep that in mind as our weather begins to warm up (at some point)! Maybe I could tolerate it more. I keep my house on the cool side year round so hopefully, I can begin to think and act on cooling down in the shower! Thanks again, Claudia for such great information! Have a great rest of the week and weekend! xo

  31. Hi Kathy, actually if you keep your house on the cool side, that in itself has some benefits. It does not need to be cold water exposure, but even being a big chilly here and there can be beneficial. If you end up trying the cold rinse, please keep us posted. I hope you are having a wonderful week, thank you so much for being here

  32. Hi Claudia! I love saunas too… Where I live we do not have a lot of access to such delights but I did get a Higher Dose Sauna Blanket and love it. At some point soon, I’ll get brave enough to do the cold shower therapy as well. I would like to know your thoughts on this: If you could only take either Fisetin or Quercetin, which one would you take? Best, Elsy

  33. Hi Elsy, it is great to hear from you. Another subscriber talked about how much she loves her sauna blanket, I will have to look into one for sure.
    If I could only take one, I would take Qurecetin, since it also helps my nose to stay clear at night. And while studies have shown that Fisetin is a bit stronger senolytic, Quercetin is still great at removing senecent cells.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend

  34. Hello beautiful lady! Well this was very fascinating. Those 3 minutes seem like they would be torture for me. I hate being cold which is why I live in the 🏜️. But I can see where you could easily adapt, like you said. When I lived in Michigan, 40 degrees Fahrenheit was a heat wave in the winter. Many of us would even wear flip flops. Because Michigan winters can brutally cold, 40 was so warm! Living in the desert, I’ve definitely adapted. 40 degrees here and I’m frozen! ☺️ Actually anything under 78 degrees Fahrenheit, and I need a jacket. ☺️ It’s amazing how the body adapts so quickly to our environment. Thank you for the great information Claudia! ♥️🙏

  35. Hi gorgeous, I remember living in Hawaii, once the temperature dropped below 75, we would wear sweatshirts ;). No, living here in Paris, 75 would like you said, be a heat wave. It truly is amazing how well the body adapts, and I think you could get used to the cold shower quite quickly. It does not have to be 3 min, even 30 seconds can be beneficial
    I hope you are having a wonderful week

  36. Hi Claudia! I started my hot/cold shower protocol almost 2 years ago. I have been following the health protocol episode 57 of Dr. Roger Seheult M.D. from MedCram, a YouTube Channel I have been following ever since Covid started. I bought myself a large kitchen clock that is now in the shower so I can see the seconds moving. I stand it the shower under water 5 minutes as hot as I can stand it and then 1 minute only cold -which here in Canada is so cold that it actually hurts. Then I do again 3-4 minutes super hot and another minute very cold. I do this hot/cold contrast at least 3- sometimes 4 times during my shower routine ending with the bitter cold. Very invigorating and great for body and mind. I hate cold so this makes me feel very empowered – like after this I am able to do anything! My skin and muscles also feel so good.
    Ganz liebe Gruesse aus Kanada 🙂

  37. Hello to Canada, I am happy you are here. Your shower routine sounds amazing, I can only imagine how invigorating it must be! I am not familiar with Dr Roger Seheult, but will def. check out his information, thank you for sharing.
    I hope you are having a wonderful week and spring is arriving to Canada

  38. Such an amazing topic! It makes so much sense! I was only taking cold showers in summer but now I have to start being more courageous and doing it every single time. I also feel invigorated and awake after a cold shower. If it was just a short term benefit, it is worth it, but if there is a chance of a longer benefit, why not to try!! Thank you for sharing with us Claudia, always so informative and interesting! Have a great weekend beautiful!

  39. Please keep us posted on how your cold shower experience comes along.
    It is def. not easy at first, but once you are used to it, you almost crave it, esp. knowing the benefits

  40. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a “must-read” message!

    Throughout time, we can see how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Did you know that the Bible foretold of this event almost 2,000 years ago?

    In Revelation 13:16-18, we read,

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles–Revelation 19:20) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Speaking to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that states we need the mark to buy or sell!

    These verses could not be referring to something purely spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (our right hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. If this mark was purely spiritual, it would indicate both places, not one OR the other.

    This is where it comes together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the implantable RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID chip

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places the Bible says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, criminal record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this is referring to a hypodermic needle when they poke into the skin to inject the microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    You can read more about it here–and to also understand the mystery behind the number 666:

    The third angel’s warning in Revelation 14:9-11 states,

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.'”

    “The coming of the lawless one (the Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)”

    Who is Barack Obama, and why is he still involved in politics?

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someone’s name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface.

    Jesus says in Luke 10:18, “…I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”

    The Hebrew Strongs word (H1299) for “lightning”: “bârâq” (baw-rawk)

    In Isaiah chapter 14, verse 14, we read about Lucifer (Satan) saying in his heart:

    “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.”

    In the verses in Isaiah that refer directly to Lucifer, several times it mentions him falling from the heights or the heavens. The Hebrew word for the heights or heavens used here is Hebrew Strongs 1116: “bamah”–Pronounced (bam-maw’)

    In Hebrew, the letter “Waw” or “Vav” is often transliterated as a “U” or “O,” and it is primarily used as a conjunction to join concepts together. So to join in Hebrew poetry the concept of lightning (Baraq) and a high place like heaven or the heights of heaven (Bam-Maw), the letter “U” or “O” would be used. So, Baraq “O” Bam-Maw or Baraq “U” Bam-Maw in Hebrew poetry similar to the style written in Isaiah, would translate literally to “Lightning from the heights.” The word “Satan” in Hebrew is a direct translation, therefore “Satan.”

    So when Jesus told His disciples in Luke 10:18 that He beheld Satan fall like lightning from heaven, if this were to be spoken by a Jewish Rabbi today influenced by the poetry in the book of Isaiah, he would say these words in Hebrew–the words of Jesus in Luke 10:18 as, and I saw Satan as Baraq O Bam-Maw.

    The names of both of Obama’s daughters are Malia and Natasha. If we were to write those names backward (the devil does things in reverse) we would get “ailam ahsatan”. Now if we remove the letters that spell “Alah” (Allah being the false god of Islam), we get “I am Satan”. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

    Obama’s campaign logo when he ran in 2008 was a sun over the horizon in the west, with the landscape as the flag of the United States. In Islam, they have their own messiah that they are waiting for called the 12th Imam, or the Mahdi (the Antichrist of the Bible), and one prophecy concerning this man’s appearance is the sun rising in the west.

    “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.'” (Revelation 14:6-7)

    Why have the words of Jesus in His Gospel accounts regarding His death, burial, and resurrection, been translated into over 3,000 languages, and nothing comes close (the Quran about 110 languages)? Because the same Spirit of God (YHVH) who created all people likewise transcends all people; therefore the power of His Word is not limited by people; while all other religions are man-made, therefore they tend to primarily stay within their own culture. The same God who speaks to all people through His creation of the heavens and earth that draws all people around the world likewise has sent His Word to the ends of the earth so that we may come to personally know Him to be saved in spirit and in truth through His Son Jesus Christ.

    Jesus stands alone among the other religions that say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into reality?

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good we have done, but rather by the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral laws through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has written in our hearts, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, murder, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh about 2,000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2,000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood with His last word’s on the cross crying out, “It is finished!” (John 19:30).

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all perish to hell forever. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), where God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death; now being conformed into the image of the heavenly man walking in a new nature, and no longer in the image of the fallen man Adam.

    Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins, and to receive His Holy Spirit that we may be born again (for Jesus says we must be born again to see and enter the Kingdom of God in John chapter 3). This is not just head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him in obedience to His Word by reading the Bible.

    Our works cannot save us, but they can condemn us; it is not that we earn our way into everlasting life, but that we obey our Lord Jesus Christ:

    Jesus says,

    “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23)

    “And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.” (Hebrews 5:9)

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8)
