In 2014 I learned about Wim Hof, a man from the Netherlands nicknamed the Ice Man. Wim has done incredible things in order to prove to the world that we have control over our autonomic nervous system. Wim can teach anyone how to control the immune system and regulate their temperature in extreme conditions. One of the benefits I love is the ability to hold my breath for over 3 minutes. When I keep a consistent practice of the breathing and cold plunge I am able to keep out of depression cycles, stay warm in the cold and not get sick. People with autoimmune diseases are able to reduce their symptoms and recover from relapses faster. The average person feels clear-headed, stronger, relaxed and is able to perform better in all things. A recent study has shown that Wim and people he trains in a few days have the ability to attack viruses in the body such as Ecoli . I have left my favorite videos about Wim below as well as his training video for breathing, enjoy.
