Dr Søberg answers these questions and many more in this three-hour deep dive into cold water immersion.

She is the founder of the Soeberg Institute, and communicates her knowledge via her online programs, books, SoMe, podcasts, talks, and workshops. In Episode #250, you will learn about brown fat: what it is, how it’s different from white fat, and how we can activate it. Dr Søberg explains how cold water exposure works on a physiological level, breaking down exactly why it is beneficial. She also shares her recommended weekly cold and hot exposure protocol, and how you can start safely integrating this technique into your lifestyle."
