That’s One Way To Keep Warm… | Winter Survival Tips

Published

on

I’ve always been a “warm blooded” type of person.  Growing up in Texas, I’ve never experienced a real winter, but even the days that we’ve had wind chills in the single digits, I’ve still rarely ever felt cold. Until this year, that is.

It’s not that it has been significantly colder down here, but rather that I’ve lost a good amount of…*Cough* Insulation… 🙂

Over this past year I’ve dropped close to 100 lbs off my bottom line, and I’ve got to say that has definitely impacted my body’s natural thermostat.

I was talking to my friend Marjory about this and she shared something with me that I think you may want to see:

Have you ever heard of a kidney wrap?

It is a simple, but powerful technique to take care of your body during the winter months.

This amazing technique used to be well known by humanity that lived in cold climates, and you’ll recognize the truth of it when looking at the fashions people wore in old photos.

So what do you think, is this a simple, quick, and effective way to keep warm in the cold months?

Have any other suggestions? Feel free to leave them below.

    I FOUND THIS OUT WHEN HAVING TO WORK OUTSIDE DURING THE WINTER. ME FRIEND TOLD ME TO MAKE SURE THAT MY KIDNEYS, LOWER BACK, WERE COVERED AND THE TOP OF MY HEAD. YOU LOSE A GREAT DEAL OF BODY WARMTH FROM THOSE AREAS.

    I too, lost over 100 pounds of “insulation” a few years ago. I too, found that I missed the insulation during the winter months (so much for global warming, I guess). I was not aware of this ‘kidney warming’ as a means to keep warm, so I will be trying it this coming week. I have worn thermal underwear for years and have found them to be woefully inadequate to keep me warm. I’m excited about this method, since I work outside every single day.

    Years ago there where these hand held warmers that used lighter fuel or charcoal sticks to produce heat. The company also had a belt with two pockets that you would place two of the heaters against your kidneys and provide warmth for hours to your back. Does anyone still make them?

    For centuries the Japanese have believed that keeping the core warm was essential not only to survival but to comfort. Many, many Japanese wear a wool tube that covers their midsection. They believe the stomach is the core of the body and a warm core equals a warm body. It is called a haramaki and I bet if you went on line, you could find some vendor selling them.
