High heat raising of the core body temperature provides benefits similar to exercise

At Loughborough University we investigated the effect of a hot bath on blood sugar control (an important measure of metabolic fitness) and on energy expended (number of calories burned). We recruited 14 men to take part in the study. They were assigned to an hour-long soak in a hot bath (40˚C) or an hour of cycling. The activities were designed to cause a 1˚C rise in core body temperature over the course of one hour….read more

According to Gus Prosch, M.D., of Birmingham, Alabama, an obesity specialist who has treated tens of thousands of over­weight patients since 1965, there are seven crit­ical truths or facts relating to the problem of obesity, as well as seven fallacies.
“These truths and fallacies are accurate 99 percent of the time,” says Dr. Prosch. “Under­standing these before any entry into a weight control program will save an overweight  … read more


Using a sauna may reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, a new study suggests.Researchers in Finland analyzed medical records of 2,315 healthy man ages 42 to 60, tracking their health over an average of about 20 years.During that time, they diagnosed 204 cases of dementia and 123 cases of Alzheimer’s disease.
The study found that compared with men who used a sauna once a week, those who used a sauna four to seven times a week had a 66 percent lower risk for dementia and a 65 percent lower risk for Alzheimer’s more


Do you know what happens to bodyfat when you lose weight?
Many’ nutritionists, physician, physical trainers and people who should know better think lost weight leaves our bodies as heat, gets converted into muscle or passed out in the feces. But it largely leaves  the body, in the form of carbon dioxide exhaled from our  lungs, according to an article in the British Medical Journal.
Losing weigh requires unlocking the’ carbon stored in fat cells, and lungs “are the primary, excretory organ for fat …read more

Hyperthermic conditioning helps you build a better brain

A neuron (/ˈnjʊərɒn/ nyewr-on or /ˈnʊərɒn/ newr-on; also known as a neurone or nerve cell) is an electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals.
These signals between neurons occur via synapses, specialized connections with other cells. Neurons can connect to each other to form neural networks.
Neurons are the core components of the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system (CNS), and of the ganglia of the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
Specialized types of neurons include: sensory neurons which respond to touch, sound, light and all other stimuli affecting the cells of the sensory organs that then send signals to the spinal cord and brain, motor neurons that receive signals from the brain and spinal cord to cause muscle contractions and affect glandular outputs, and interneurons ….read more
