One case study published in the British Medical Journal Case Reports revealed that jumping and swimming in it would help treat depression.

The person studied in this research is 24 years old and has been taking antidepressants since the age of 17.

On the other hand, researchers found a significant role in swimming in cold water and getting rid of, and the researchers explained that, diving in cold water stimulates the stress reaction, which includes hormones and function, and this causes:

  • High blood pressure and respiratory rate
  • secretion of stress hormones

This reflects positively on depression and thus gets rid of it.

The researchers behind the study indicated that this opens doors for developing a treatment method for depression, which helps patients control their symptoms for a longer period of time.
