Frozen Faith: Cryonics and The Quest to Cheat Death

  • Published 4 months ago

Cryotherapy started as a scientific method for prolonging life. People, and scientists, are always looking for a way to “cheat death” and live longer.

And while using technology to cheat death seems like a science fiction, for cryonicists, the hope is that one day they will be able to successfully freeze and re-animate a person after death. It is something they think it is worth fighting for.

But while cryotherapy for prolonging life is not something most of us can believe in, there are definitely benefits of using cryotherapy.

Nowadays, the therapy is also known as cold therapy. The method is used for treating localized areas of some cancers. But the most popular usage of cryotherapy is in the world of sports, where athletes use it for rejuvenating their body after a tough workout, or game.

The pain treatment uses a method of localized freezing temperatures to deaden an irritated nerve, which results in your muscles feeling relaxed and less inflamed.
