At UMOYA our focus is, and will always remain, on improving the resiliency of the body. Through our Chiropractic care, the better your body and brain are communicating by way of the nervous system, the better your body is able to deal with the challenges of our modern life.
Another way to improve the resilience of the body is by cold exposure. It may sound counterintuitive, but controlled cold exposure is actually beneficial for both your mind and your body. What are some of the benefits of cold exposure?
• Reduced stress levels
• Higher level of alertness
• A more robust immune response
• Increased willpower
• Improved quality of sleep
Kubanda means “cold” in Zulu, and the challenge is simple: take a cold shower every day for 30 days.
How you do this is completely up to you. Start the shower hot and end it cold? Be a daredevil and keep it on cold the whole time? And whether it’s 30 seconds or two minutes – it doesn’t matter. It’s about making a start. As the body adapts with time and repetition, you will notice that the 30 seconds becomes one minute, and the one minute two. Keep at it, and soon it will become your new normal. And then you will reap the long term benefits, just like with our Chiropractic care.
