Methods of hardening
Immunity - the ability of the human bodyto resist bacteria and microbes, to recognize and destroy them. To do this, there are leukocytes and lymphocytes - blood cells. The faster they move, the more effective their work. That is, the immunity depends on the speed of movement of these cells, and their mobility from body temperature. Bacteria reproduce faster when cooled, and the rate of immune cells slows down. There are various methods of hardening, for example, to decrease the water temperature by a degree every day. With regard to this method, opinions differ. The other method, on the contrary, is aimed at warming up the body. Implement this method in practice well in the bath. You can warm up deeply or alternate the warm-up with short-term cooling. Application of the above methods in practice in the complex contributes to improving immunity, improving and rejuvenating the body.
