COLD PLUNGE UPDATES (alternative to facebook for those not using social media)

NEW PERSONAL RECORD 5 hours!!!! Aug 12th 2022

Limited time video interviewing Heidi:

VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

Heidi debuts her 252 hour cold plunge healing journey. She answers what is healing about submerging in the 50 F degree cold plunge, how to go about it, altered states, elevated dopamine levels, cold as a “gateway” and much much more.

Heidi has been posting her progress on using the cold plunge to help her back pain here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1586578935015983

CURRENT RUNNING UPDATE: (I stopped counting my training in days due to the lowered number of hours on cold plunging days.)

291 hours as of Oct 1, 2022

——————————————————————————————————

August 17th–I looked up Guinness Book of World Records, there is a man submerged in ice for 3 hours. NEW IDEA: I am thinking about submitting an application for a new record. I wonder if I would do it at the springs or in my own plunge…

August 12th–New AMAZING 5 hour record at the springs! (Still waiting on the handyman to help me install my unit.)

SEE THIS VIDEO WHERE I BROKE MY 4 HOUR PREVIOUS RECORD AND COMPLETED 5 HOURS NONSTOP (before and after video footage for the first time in 89 Days of training).

July 14th–Cold plunge cooling unit arrives!

April 29th–Cold plunge container arrives!

Here comes the plunge!!!

———————————————————————————————————

April 1 2022 but this is not a joke, for real!!!!

2nd record that same day after four hours from 12:08 to 4:08pm on April 1st was a 5th hour of soaking 5:11pm to 6:11pm–that record is soaking a total of 5 hours in one 12 hour window single day (before it had been 4.5 hrs)

———————————–

Since many fans have reported not using social media, she is also going to put updates on this page!

Since September, Heidi has been using a 4 and a half foot deep cold plunge at a local hot springs .

Feb 14th Valentine’s Day record

Other prior posts included:

On Day 41, Heidi went from 60 minutes to 90 minutes.

On Day 49, Heidi went from 90 minutes to 120 minutes.

One Day 54, Heidi went from 120 minutes to 150 minutes.

Day 63, she went from 150 minutes to 180 minutes in one soaking.

Day 74, she went from 180 minutes to 240 minutes in one soaking

Day 89, she went from 240 minutes to 300 minutes in one soaking

To try and keep warm for her HOURS soaking in the plunge, Heidi wears a hat and scarf as well as thermal undershirt and fleece with sleeves pushed to above her elbows

In this video from her WIZARD’S UNITE DISCUSSION GROUP (start listening at min 4 sec 40 for cold plunge focus, whereas the first half relate to the neuroscience behind being able to create habit change which was the focus of the group).

Email her at HeidiCrockett at gmail dot com to learn more about the group or to attend.

SPECIAL LIMITED TIME free offer:

Want to see the SCIENCE BLAST video AFTER the above update where Heidi teaches more on “response flexibility” and where exactly the “wizard brain” (prefrontal cortex) is located?

See the below video code ResponseFlexibility2heal!

EXTRA: Do you want to learn more about the importance of your wizard brain after watching the above (especially the last 5 min explaining your window of tolerance and how to widen it)?

Technically the above video was #2 out of 11 videos explaining the wizard brain (“prefrontal cortex,”) together these educational videos create Series #3. It is posted here for free for the purposes of teaching how to optimally use the cold plungethe more a person has access to these 9 functions, the more they can stay in the cold for the purpose of improved health and mood.

DETAILS: See this page for Series #1, Series #2 and Series #3 outlining 50 hours of neuroscience teaching on how to more intelligently wire up your brain. Also pasting the very bottom of that page here:

#3 Series

$149 for wizard brain series (9 functions of the prefrontal cortex) or $20 each

A total of 11 videos at approximately 9 hours of teaching, will paste below…unfortunately you need the codes to see the detailed timestamps below each video.

1. vimeo.com/665766613 What is the wizard brain and mindsight
2. vimeo.com/670875724 The wizard brain skill of response flexibility
3. vimeo.com/676037018 The wizard brain skill of attuned communication
4. vimeo.com/681602551 CORE class explaining how to rewire shame using wizard brain skill of fear modulation (to unlearn a fear)
5. vimeo.com/686851435 The wizard brain skill of insight and how it originates from attachment in childhood
6. vimeo.com/692477147 The wizard brain skill of empathy but expanded definition with an empathy energy experience from guest speaker
7. vimeo.com/699631930 The wizard brain skill of morality ***BEST overview of the whole series
8. vimeo.com/704873783 The wizard brain skill of intuition

9. vimeo.com/709231793 The wizard brain skill of emotional balance *** AN EXCELLENT class overviewing interpersonal neurobiology model, without getting overly technical. (A fantastic 15 min section is to start at min 34. Live demonstration of an audience member gaining emotional balance then detailed PowerPoint explanation.)

10. vimeo.com/714644105 The wizard brain skill of body regulation. Possibly the best HACK out of the 9 functions to most quickly jump start your brain from lizard to wizard!

11. https://vimeo.com/718842175 The FINALE reviewing all 9 and explaining more nuanced details, also very good to watch for an overview of all 9 functions

This PowerPoint slide is from #11 the FINALE listing all classes:

Want to know more about Heidi’s congenital back condition that she is healing?

It is called Bertolotti’s Syndrome or simply “transitional vertebrae” in some places.

Heidi had a RARE version of a rare condition where her pain came from the OPPOSITE side where pain typically comes from with this condition. (This picture comes from the PubMed article published on her case.)

(The pain typically comes from that fused side where the bone meets the sacrum called a “pseudoarticulation” or false joint because the enlarged transverse process turned bone merging into the sacrum can be partially fused in a way that causes pain. That wasn’t the way it manifested in her case.) Her pain came from the opposite side at the sacral ala (see white arrow) where her right transverse process was cutting into her sciatic nerve (this caused her ankle pain, she was on crutches for 9 years and just got off them at the end of 2021 due to the cold plunge!!!)

The above diagram explains what has happened since ankle pain started in 2012, the short version is an anticipated FULL RECOVERY sometime in 2023 thanks to many hours soaking in the cold plunge! (After an appropriate back surgery in 2017 with hardware removal in 2020)

————————————————————————————————————–

Last year she completed the below results.

This blog post is created on Valentine’s Day Feb 14, 2022, where she has completed a total of 63 days visiting the springs to help heal her back with 192 hours soaking in the 50 degree F plunge (approx 10 degree C)
