Treating DEPRESSION and ANXIETY using Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC), how is that possible?

Anxiety and depression are not the same, but they often occur together. It is not uncommon for people with depression to experience anxiety and people with anxiety to become depressed. They are often experienced as a complex set of emotional and functional challenges.

There are a number of factors that may increase the chance of depression and anxiety such as; abuse, certain medications, conflict, death or a loss, genetics, major life events, serious illnesses, substance abuse and biology.

Whole Body Cryotherapy is currently used to alleviate inflammation and pain in arthritis, osteoarthritis and for pain relief in fibromyalgia. WBC has been found useful in neurological diseases in reducing spasticity, as a method of kinesitherapy in rheumatic diseases and multiple sclerosis, and for its sedative effect in psoriasis and neurodermatitis.

Science has already shown that WBC stimulates physiological reactions of the human body which result in analgesic, anti-swelling, hormonal, immune, and circulatory system reactions. Apart from activating the body’s system of temperature regulation, there is also a hormonal response, which increases body metabolism and the concentrations of adrenaline, noradrenaline, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), cortisone, pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), and β-endorphins in blood plasma.

Doctors in Poland conducted studies where the objective was to evaluate influence of Whole Body Cryotherapy on depressive and anxiety symptoms.

A control of 34 and a study group of 26 people, both consisting of outpatients 18–65 years old with depressive and anxiety disorders, received standard psychopharmacotherapy. The study group was additionally treated with a series of 15 daily visits to a cryosauna (2–3 min, at -220 F). The Hamilton’s depression rating scale (HDRS) and Hamilton’s anxiety rating scale (HARS) were used as the outcome measures.

After three weeks, a decrease of at least 50% from the baseline HDRS-17 scores in 34.6% of the study group and 2.9% of the control group and a decrease of at least 50% from the baseline HARS score in 46.2% of the study group and in none of the control group were noted.

These findings, despite such limitations as a small sample size, suggest a possible role for WBC as a short-term adjuvant treatment for mood and anxiety disorders.

And also discuss this article with your doctor and see if WBC is something you both should investigate further.
