In this video, we'll take a closer look at the three pillars of the perfect bath as outlined in Sloan's book, which are Temperature, Carbonation, and Minerals.
Hey everybody, David here from Bathing Evolved. And today I'm going to give you a brief overview of a amazing book on bathing called Bath Bombs & Balneotherapy by Mark Sloan.
Here's the book right here:
The book connects a lot of dots about the metabolism and goes into the three fundamental keys of the perfect bath and those are temperature, minerals and carbonation.
Temperature is whether your bath is hot or cold. A lot of people are into cold bathing and Taking a cold shower like the Wim Hof method, which is really good for your metabolism but a hot bath is a really underrated tactic for your metabolism. For example, if you take a 30 minute bath, you're going to burn the amount of calories that you would on the 30 minute walk, which is pretty remarkable. So if it's hard for you to start working out and if you're maybe even feeling lazy, just get in the tub for 30 minutes and you can get the metabolic benefits of a walk.
The other pillar of the perfect bath is carbonation and what you're doing is you're flooding the water with carbonation which will increase your circulation and whatever is in the bath, you will basically absorb more of it because your skin is dilating from the carbonation.
So you want to bathe and something clean to give you all the health benefits without flooding you with garbage.
And then the final pillar is minerals which are ideally magnesium flakes or dead sea salt minerals.
So you combine those three pillars temperature, carbonation and minerals into one bath and you have literally a bathing experience that mimics the best Springs in nature, which are hot carbonated Springs. And there aren't too many, you could go find a natural spring that's hot, but it might not be carbonated.
