Expose your bod to -240 degree temps in the name of better health?

Think two to three minutes in a cryo chamber isn't for "regular human" you? Think again. Student athletes, grandparents, weekend warriors, sciatica sufferers, those with autoimmune diseases and more are all bragging about how they've been able to ditch the Motrin or prescription pain pills, thanks to the inflammation-reducing, immune-system boosting relief cryotherapy provides.
