Being Joyfully Naked Good For Our Health

At NudeTherapyLondon we usually 'change into birthday suit' to feel soothing and gentle cuddling skin on skin while always bearing boundaries in mind.

Being nude more often can be helpful with physical and psychological problems - i.e. better night's sleep, better for weight loss, self confidence booster, reducing shame, softer and healthier skin.

According to the D.C.-based nonprofit the National Sleep Foundation, in order to have a normal sleep schedule and sleep comfortably, your body needs to reach an optimal temperature of around 18.3 degrees Celsius.

Sleeping nude is an easy way to decrease your body temp — which may in turn lead to other benefits: a 2014 study in the journal Diabetes found that sleeping in lower temperatures can help increase your levels of metabolism-boosting brown fat, in effect its better for losing weight.

Furthermore, according to plastic surgeon and skincare expert Dr. Michael Fiorillo. ""Going naked is great for healthy skin. It helps the elimination of sweat toxins that clothing can reintroduce to the body and better overall blood circulation."

Dr. Lance Brown, a dermatologist in New York City, adds with saying “Wearing restrictive clothing can cause excessive sweating which may lead to inflammation of the skin follicles, rashes and breakouts. Going bare gives your skin a chance to breathe.”

Being naked outdoors, such as on nude beach, is great for boosting vitamin D, improving one's mood, improving circulation as well as detoxify the skin.

Its wonderful embracing one's own birthday suit. "Spending time in the nude is a great way to get in touch with your body," Dr. Jenn Mann, relationship expert. "Most people in today's society are so disconnected from bodily sensations and this could help. Being in the nude reduces shame. You can work on self acceptance and that can be very healing."
