Wim has been on a mission to spread the word about the impressive potential health benefits of the Wim Hof Method breathing techniques.
Over the years he has worked closely with scientists from around the world to prove the effectiveness of his method that really does prevent illness which means you never get sick again. Through the numerous studies that have been carried out, Wim has continuously proven that by consciously hyperventilating he has demonstrated the ability to both increase and decreasing his heart rate, adrenalin levels and even blood alkalinity.

I myself have been taking cold showers for just over a year now. I have noticed a difference in my ability to withstand cold, which has proven a great benefit during the winter time here in the UK. Also I have not caught a cold or the flu.
I will say the breathing technique method is a little challenging to start and slightly uncomfortable, until you find your own natural rhythm and get used to the sensations that you will experience due to oxygen saturation in the body. You mind does alter and you become more focused, aware and feel a greater connection to something. Being able to hold my breath for 3 – 4 minutes has been fun to experience.
