In western herbalism and in Ayurveda, facing heat to release heat helps the body acclimate to a hot environment, this process is called a febrifuge affect.
The Self Care Sanctuary is just as important to your health in the summer, as it is in the winter.
We all know how nice it is to get into the steam room when it is raining or cold outside, but you have no idea how good it feels to have energy, even in the middle of a hot day, because you’ve acclimated yourself to beat the heat!
This occurs by stabilized the blood pressure through cardiovascular cleansing, like sweating. It allows water to keep flowing to the heart, which means your blood pressure doesn’t drop and that keeps oxygen flowing to the brain so you can keep your energy up.

Daily: Rinse or submerge your body with cold water (as cold as you can)
