Harnessing the Power of Thermal Stress — Applications

In the theory post, we outlined how the application of reverse thermal stress, when executed with the right magnitude and duration, can help eliminate targeted stress, while at the same time provide hormetic effects, ultimately triggering favourable functional adaptations in the body.

Harnessing the Power of Thermal Stress – Theory

Throughout a long evolutionary history, nature has endowed us with a fine-tuned thermal-regulatory  mechanism. Despite its limitations, we still owe much of our survival to its automaticity (i.e., operates independently of volition) and plasticity.
