Today’s episode is going to be very chilled out.
I have been into cold exposure to help manage my anxiety as well as recovery from workouts and also to boost immunity for a while now, and it has been an incredible tool for enhancing my overall health and performance. But it still takes me tremendous willpower to get into an ice bath every time. My guest today is a truly cool woman, who does not have this issue and who knows how to overcome it.
Adrienne Jezick is a cold coach and co-founder of the Morozko Forge Ice Bath. And her story of healing physically, emotionally and spiritually is powerful and amazing, because she did it with cold water. Adrienne’s experience is about the healing and strength we can harness when we move beyond our discomfort. Adrienne was diagnosed with three autoimmune diseases in 2013, which set her on her journey of healing. In 2017 she started her practice of Deliberate Cold Exposure via cold water immersion, and since is free from the debilitating illness symptoms and is helping others to do the same.
Adrienne created the Morozko Method, a sensory immersion meditation technique for Deliberate Cold Exposure and she is also the host of the Morozco Method Podcast, where she shares how her spiritual approach to ice bath therapy has transformed her physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
