To get her sex drive back, a woman decided to take a plunge into ice-cold water.
Jana Hocking was so confused about her lost libido that she tried almost everything to get it back.
she said News.com.au that she even talked to her doctor about her lack of sexual appetite.
After trying lifestyle changes like eating more vegetables and getting more shut eye, Jana discovered something else she wanted to try.
She realized that she had found a video by a neuroscientist named TJwho talked about the benefits of cold water.
“He revealed that soaking in fresh, cold water for just two to five minutes every day helps clear the mind, increase dopamine levels and reduce inflammation in the body,” she explained.
Additionally, it can increase your dopamine levels by 2.5 times the regular amount, and the results can last well over an hour.
Intrigued and excited by the possibility that her libido might return, Jana decided not to take a real ice bath but instead try something similar.
One winter morning, she went to her local beach and was ready to take the plunge.
Wearing only a bikini, Jana ran into the water and despite the cold shock, she loved the feeling.
“You might think I sound a little delusional, but the high you experience when you get used to the water temperature is wonderful,” she joked.
And the results were so good that she continued every morning, looking forward to the freezing temperatures.
She gushed, “The other crazy side effect I discovered about this new, pumped-up me is that I started to look forward to it.”
“Yes, I crave the instant high and this has made me want to take a little more care of my health.”
“I started sleeping better, I have more, and with that – voila! – my sex drive returned.”
