My question was basically anything else that's changed in the baths since the book?

[Aajonus]

Well, I used to say do it in the afternoon, nobody can do it in the afternoon. So, do it in the evening. And I say to everybody, to get your 90 minutes in, first 30 minutes you go in there, do it sleep time, time you to go to sleep, get in the hot tub.

If you have a hot tub, it's great because then you can go to sleep in it, no problem because it'll stay that temperature. If you got a bathtub, you have to wake every 20 minutes to let some water out and reheat it, and also when it's so hot, it's hard to sleep when it's 110°.

When it's 105°, it's okay, but if you get heat frustration, you have a bowl of cold water with ice cubes floating on top and a wash rag in it. When you get heat frustration, you just can't take it, you don't want to be in there anymore. Take that cloth, ring it just a little bit, put it down, cold water will run down your head and your face, and then put your fists, not tight, open fist into the bowl up to here to your high wrist.= and you hold it in there for only two minutes.

Now it's the brain that doesn't like to get hot, so that will go from the bone right up into the skull bone and it cools the body pretty quickly, and the body loves heat. The brain doesn't, so that chills it fast.

So, you've got another 20, 30 minutes. Usually when that happens, you do that, you may only do it one time and you don't have to do it again.

The problem with a lot of people, they just fall asleep when they don't wake up in time to change the water.

[Aajonus]

They need a timer for every 20 minutes then, a little kitchen timer, 20 minutes.

I found that just room temperature water poured on your face a little bit, it feels fantastic because there's still so much difference between the bath water and room temperature water. So, just room temperature water, just pour a little bit.

[Aajonus]

I find it doesn't work for a lot of people.

[Attendee]

Won't cool you down too long, but it feels so good.

[Aajonus]

Yeah, it does. Some people just can't breathe and need to get out and I don't want them to get out.

[Attendee]

Well, I got frostbite from putting a cold pack on the side of my face.

[Aajonus]

Not supposed to put a cold pack, supposed to put a cold rag on there and not all ice cubes and a ice pack.

[Attendee #2]

Well, I have a cold pack I put on, the old fashioned kind when it get too hot. I just slip that here for a minute or so.

[Attendee #3]

It's not direct on the skin though.

[Attendee #2]

Why would it not be direct on your skin?

[Aajonus]

Well, it can actually damage your skin like he got frostbite.

[Attendee]

I had a huge stain on the side of my face.

[Aajonus]

Not a good idea to use ice directly, it's a risk.

[Attendee #3]

What's the temperature? The risk? What's the temperature of hot tub?

[Aajonus]

105° - 110°. It's up to you how hot you want it. Not above 110° cuz 111° you start destroying the vitamins and enzymes in your skin.

That's why saunas and steam baths are horrible for the mucus membranes and your eyes and the ears.

[Fred]

105° is the minimum?

[Aajonus]

105° minimum, 110° maximum. But you know, when you're doing a hot bath and you have a heater, you get down to 102°. Then it's time to change, unless you want to do it every 12 minutes then you start at 110° - 111°, goes down to 105°, you know, then you can heat it again. But that means heating at about every 12 minutes.
