DescriptionMike Tipton has conducted a huge amount of research into the area of cold-water immersion. He explains that humans now “have developed such a degree of control over our thermal environment we don’t have any thermal challenges anymore”. And cold is one of the biggest challenges that you can expose the body to. “When you immerse yourself in cold water, stress hormones like adrenalin and noradrenalin pour out of you, your ventilation goes up, the body needs to activate that ‘fight or flight’ response. With that comes a sense of alertness. You feel alive – just like when you do anything that scares you. You feel like you have defeated death.”

DescriptionIt’s -5 degrees Celsius on the Dutch North Sea coast near The Hague. A Scandinavian north wind is blowing and bringing the temperature down to -10. Astonishingly, a small group of 30-something woman are taking off their clothes on the frozen sand. Even more astonishingly, they start making their way towards the sea and then with screams of excitement, walk out and fully immerse themselves under the waves.
