I am following this topic for a while now, and have a question. I have read the monster side from Dr. Kruse and tried to put all the things together ( not so easy, cause of his writing style and english isn´t my first language ….)
In reference to the CT ( cold adaption) I think I have missed an important point, or have the wrong understanding cause of his writing style.
The way the body adapts to the cold, is the cronic stimulus of the cold receptors and thereupon the change of the metabolism ( simply speaking ?) the whole cold adaption thing is a mystery to me, to cold adapt in the short light cycle makes sense to me, but cold adaption in long light cycle ?
When I took a cold shower ( in the morning) ore an ice bath and the rest of the day I have to deal with 28° C or more, how does this fit together ? is the relative short cold stimulus enough to fully cold adapt, when the environment says … hey it´s summer ?, most of the day there is a warm stimulus , I wonder if this could also lead to an mismatch. In his blog he often refers to the seasons….. don´t eat banana´s in winter etc. but the season thing seems to doesn´t apply for cold adaption in the summer months, maybe it isn´t good for my metabolism to cold adapt in summer and better wait for the winter ?
When I understand the material the right way, we should switch from the light cyle to temperature as stimulus, but the stimulation time seems too short for me, when I live in a warm environment.
Normally I have no problem to understand material in englisch, but this stuff is total exhausting
I think there are great benefits of cold showers, cryotherapy etc. and maybe this pathway really does exist, but at the moment I am not able
to get an right understanding of the topic… Maybe I must work harder on my englisch…..or wait of Factor X
He really is getting a lot of attention and maybe his ideas aren´t so far fetched, but the way he is presenting himself and his writing style let him appear absolute unprofessional.
I also follow the discussions about his person and his blog and are very interested to see what there turned out to be….. Current there is a discussion of his material on the marks daily apple website ( There are also some interesting posts about cold on marks webside)
