ELU IS LIFE

ELU – Saunas & Cold Tubs was founded on the key principles of Heat-Cold-Breath, and the power they possess when incorporated into regular practice. Combined together, these essential tools allow you to live optimally and truly experience a life of vitality.

It is no secret that the norms of society have pushed us into bouts of toxic stress resulting in chronic inflammation and various auto-immune disorders. ELU prides itself on supporting individuals as they combat these norms, offering the opportunity to strengthen the mind & body and build resilience throughout.

Meet the Owner

I’m Adam, the owner of ELU and I know all too well about these daily stressors and the impact they can have on our health and well-being. I always led an active lifestyle playing numerous sports all my life, went to the gym regularly and had a consistent yoga practice. However, despite leading what I thought was a healthy life, I was battling stress and frustration on a regular basis. Eventually the stress piled up, and by December 2020 it reached its breaking point where my body shut down. With no previous warnings, over the next five weeks, piece by piece, I fell apart, literally. I lost feeling in all my extremities, lost complete vision in one eye, and lost control of my bodily functions.  After five weeks of the wheels falling off, I was checked into the emergency and spent the next 5 nights in the hospital where I was administered steroids and underwent a variety of tests and scans.  Four months, four neurologists and four hospitals later, it was determined that at the age of 29 I had Multiple Sclerosis. In short, MS is an auto-immune disorder and degenerative disease that attacks the central nervous system (brain & spinal cord).

Since this revelation, I sought out alternative therapies that would support my new reality, in addition to other lifestyle changes.  It was during this journey that I discovered the power of Heat-Cold-Breath, and the impact that they can have on physical and mental well-being. They were the perfect solution to help manage my new existence. Together, these natural processes form a powerful disease fighting tool box that strengthens & supports immune system function, lowers cortisol and reduces stress, reduces chronic inflammation, releases unwanted toxins, builds physical and mental resilience, calms the nervous system, improves sleep patterns, and enhances overall mood. I am now once again able to lead a physical and active lifestyle with no limitations, and have found a new calmness in my mental state that has allowed me to better navigate the daily stressors we all experience. This regular practice of Heat-Cold-Breath has given me control over my condition and has allowed me to prosper and live in vitality like never before.
