After the arrival of her precious boy, this mother lost control of herself to the point that she couldn’t even breathe on her own as her body was gradually suffocating her.
From when she was a teen until she got married, Gisele M., an athlete in her younger years, was envied by most women until she finally became pregnant and was referred to as a “whale”.
Despite trying intermittent fasting, the Atkins diet, and the keto diet, her diet plans would not last for more than five days. Before she even realizes it, she is now the heaviest she has ever been, and she is now unable to stand up without gasping for air!
Gisele never imagined that there would finally be light at the end of the tunnel, as the ancient Himalayan “ice hack” finally helped her dissolve all her insecurities like ice under the scorching hot sun.

Metabolism is a process in which the body turns food into energy, gets rid of waste, and controls how much sugar is in the blood. The primary organs involved are the liver, pancreas, small intestine, stomach, and kidneys, which help break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
Cortisol, thyroid conditions, and insulin levels can all negatively affect the metabolism, leading to weight gain, fatigue, difficulty losing weight, and difficulty concentrating. High levels of cortisol can lead to an increase in appetite and slow down the metabolism. Whereas thyroid issues can cause the release of hormones to be disrupted, leading to a slower metabolism. Insulin levels can also contribute to a slower metabolism, as high levels of insulin can cause more energy to be stored as fat.
A slow metabolism can affect both men and women and is caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, age, diet, physical activity levels, stress, hormonal imbalances, and certain medical conditions. As a result, it may be challenging to maintain a healthy weight because the body burns calories more slowly.
The majority of people are unaware that women typically have a slower metabolism than men because of hormonal differences. Women have higher levels of estrogen, which can slow the rate at which the body burns calories. This can result in fat accumulation and, eventually, weight gain.
For women who become new moms, it can be extremely stressful, and stress hormones can further promote weight gain and women are more likely to eat when they are stressed. Therefore, postpartum among women will also result in a lower metabolic rate and may be connected to insulin resistance. This is why most women often find it more challenging to shed excess weight even after giving birth.
Symptoms of a slow metabolism:
(i.) Weight Gain- A less efficient metabolism slows calorie conversion, meaning you burn fewer calories. Using fewer calories causes your body to store additional fat.
(ii.) Difficulty Losing Weight- Slow metabolism burns fewer calories, making it more likely that they will maintain their weight even if they make positive changes to their diet and exercise routines.
(iii.) Fatigue- If your metabolism is slow, you might get tired quickly or constantly feel sleepy and groggy.
(iv.) Mood Swings- Studies showed that people with a slower metabolism may be more likely to experience depressive symptoms or anxiety.

The reason why some people who eat healthy and exercise are unable to lose weight is because of their metabolism. Metabolism is a complex process that determines how quickly or slowly your body burns calories. If your metabolism is slow, your body will burn fewer calories, making it more difficult to lose weight.
Taking a cold bath can help speed up your metabolism and burn more calories, which can help you lose weight. Cold water baths have been used for centuries to improve health and wellness, especially in ancient Rome. Cold water bathing has many benefits, including improving sleep, not drying out your hair, improving skin tone, and providing an endorphin rush. Cold water baths can also help to accelerate weight loss, as they help to boost metabolism and burn more calories. Cold showers can also help to strengthen the immune system, increase testosterone, and improve fertility.
Coolsculpting and cold baths or showers can both stimulate the metabolism and aid in weight loss. Both methods increase metabolic rate and calorie burn, which can help reduce body fat and inflammation. Coolsculpting is a non-invasive body sculpting process that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells. At the same time, cold baths or showers work by increasing the body's temperature in response to the chilly water. This can activate the body's calorie-burning switch, even while sleeping or resting. Both methods are safe alternatives to liposuction and other invasive procedures.

For instance, Cryolipolysis, which is also called "fat freezing," is a non-invasive way to get rid of fat. Controlled cooling is used to freeze and kill fat cells in places like the stomach, thighs, arms, and chin. During the Cryolipolysis treatment, the area is cooled to temperatures of between -5°C and -7°C, which causes the targeted fat cells to crystallize and die. Over the following weeks and months, the body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells as part of its normal metabolic processes while boosting the metabolic rate.
Meet Emily Harrison, who is 35 years old. She had a beautiful body and was full of energy and vitality. Everything changed a lot when she developed an eating disorder. Her metabolism was no longer able to keep up with her growing hunger. She started to gain weight and feel less healthy over time. She tried to fight off her desire to eat, but she couldn't. She got very fat, and as a result, her quality of life went down a lot. She could no longer enjoy things like swimming, running, or dancing. She was too embarrassed to look at herself in the mirror because of how she looked. She could barely walk because of the extra weight, and her joints hurt all the time. Until someone recommended cold bath therapy,
We are amazed at how much Emily has changed after just four days of trying out ice bath therapy! Her body has become lighter, she is no longer exhausted, and she can move around without feeling any pain. She has more energy now, and the fat around her stomach has gone down in a noticeable way. Emily is feeling like her old self again and is now able to enjoy physical activities with excitement.
Her clothing fits better, she's more confident, and she's even started mild exercise and dancing classes in just nine days. She can feel the fat cells melting away as she soaks her body in ice baths, and she no longer has any of the joint aches she used to have when she worked out. Her energy levels have risen, and she can immediately feel her body toning. She's feeling more lively and confident than she's ever felt before.
Amazingly, she was able to overcome her body image in just fifteen days! She could gaze into the mirror with confidence and affection for herself. She was no longer self-conscious about her appearance even when she was wearing a bodycon dress or a bikini and was able to resume activities she used to enjoy, such as swimming, running, and dancing. Her health and well-being had been restored, and she was back to her former self, feeling more confident and empowered than ever. Emily’s weight loss journey inspired those who are around her and they too, are following in her footsteps in trying out the ice bath therapy.
"I used to feel so embarrassed and ashamed of my body; I was always in pain and out of breath from walking a few steps. I was so depressed and felt like I had no hope of ever looking and feeling the way I wanted. But then I found out about the wonders of ice bath therapy, and it changed my life! It helped me reduce my fat and get back in shape. Now I'm walking normally without any pain, and I'm even able to dress up the way I want. I owe so much to this incredible therapy, and I'm so grateful for it. It gave me the confidence I needed to be the best version of myself.”
