    Default Wim Hof - This Will Revolutionize Our Future!

    There are some threads about Wim Hof but I came across some videos today that would make good additions to what is already here.

    Who Is Wim Hof?

    One superhuman that has caught my attention is Wim “Iceman” Hof. Wim has garnered global fame for his ability to embrace freezing temperatures that routinely send victims into hypothermia. He has run bareback marathons in subzero temperatures, climbed the highest mountains on the planet shirtless, and proven to science that he can control his autonomic nervous system with his mind.

    Interested yet? We are just getting started.

    9 Facts About Wim Hof

    He climbed Mt. Everest in shorts. Though he never experienced a hint of hypothermia or altitude sickness, Wim surpassed 22,000 feet before a lingering foot injury halted his ascension.

    He submerged himself in ice for almost two hours without his core body temperature lowering a degree and broke a world record. Who holds the record for the second- and third-longest attempts? Wim himself.

    He completed a marathon in the Namib Desert without water. Temperatures surpassing 104 degrees Fahrenheit and losing over fourteen pounds of water water didn’t discourage him from finishing this amazing feat. Apparently he does alright in the heat too!
    Dressed in nothing by shorts, he completed a full marathon north of the arctic circle in less than six hours.

    He reached the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895 meters) in less than 32 hours. And yes, he did it in shorts. Who has time for altitude acclimation anyway?

    He eats just once a day, past 6 pm, and has done so for 38 years. Wim claims that this alleviates stress on his body by not having to process excess food. He’ll only cheat and have breakfast on days when he breaks a record.

    He swam over 80 meters below an ice shelf north of the arctic circle with one breath. Yes, that’s right — over 250 feet in -30 degree water in one breath. No big deal.

    He can take control of his autonomous nervous system. This startling discovery was found by researchers after they attempted to refute his claims by inviting him into into the labs. He was injected with an endotoxin that causes people to get severely sick within minutes.

    But that was not the case with Wim. Researchers found that the endotoxin didn’t affect him in the slightest, and credited this to his unique ability to harness control over his autonomous nervous system.

    He claims that anyone can be like him. Wim teaches thousands of others to harness the strength of the breath, the importance of cold showers, and the practice of meditation. He offers a ten-week course encompassing his meditation practices, as well as numerous retreats and trips that he leads.

    Anyone Can Do It

    Perhaps the craziest of the facts about Wim Hof is it that he swears that anyone can experience life as he does — if they have the determination to learn.

    Can't wait to view your vid's Franny, very interesting.
    back in the day when I was younger, I used to experiment a lot with different mind control and meditations.
    Take 'Pain' for example, if you just except pain as pain, well it will hurt you, but if you get into the pain and break it down you will see it has sharp cold and worm blunt aspects to it.
    So you can end up finding one part of the pain that is actually quite tolerable, even nice.
    I also experimented with hot and cold, you can switch these input, warning singles around and vary them, but be careful, I got in a mess for awhile.
    I over heated in winter, then swing'd the wrong way to in summer, was cold.
    Not saying that is what Wim Hof dose's.
    So going to watch tonight, thank you for the post Franny

    I have already posted this video in the thread that Bill linked to above. However, this one bears reposting.

    After watching and listening to Wim Hof explain how to do the breathing in post #1 above, anyone can start doing the breathing with this Wim Hof guidance video, which he calls the "Breathing Bubble". This audio/visual guide is a very useful tool for beginners. This is how I and many others got started.

    CAUTION: Always do the breathing exercise either lying down or sitting. Never in water, standing up or driving since people can sometimes overdo it and hyperventilate and pass out. If one does the breathing properly using both of Wim's videos then there should not be a problem. Wim cautions not to force it.

    The Wim Hof Method really fits well in the Avalon Forum "where science and spirituality meet". Wim's abilities have been scientifically tested. It was first thought that Wim was just genetically unique but he has an identical twin brother who could not do what Wim could do. Furthermore, Wim has repeatedly demonstrated that he can teach his method to others and they, too, can demonstrate the same abilities.

    I highly recommend the Wim Hof Method "Fundamentals" Course on his website, WimHofMethod.com. It is a 10-week video course that gradually introduces a person to the cold, contains breathing exercises, cold water exercises, etc.



    I am in the second week of the course and it is already changing my life in very positive ways. Fortunately, I have been singing and deep breathing using my diaphragm (which Wim calls "belly breathing") since the 70's. Also, I have been using deep breathing when riding my bicycles. So the breathing part came easily.

    I used to dislike the cold but now I embrace it. After doing the cold showers I was able to stay outside for a half hour and build a snow sculpture in a bathing suit. I have been able to ride my bicycle without a shirt in freezing temperatures for three miles. My two-wheeled electric bike goes up to 19 mph so that's quite a wind chill as well. Fortunately, my nipples did not freeze, lol.

    The breathing exercises can really put a smile on your face. Twice I have just broke out laughing after doing the breathing exercises--big belly laughs. I find that I smile more now and am more alive.

    Of course, the Wim Hof Method is not just about deep breathing. There are two actions that make Wim's method different from simply breathing deeply:

    1) Exhaling the air from the lungs after repeated deep breathing and then holding one's breath. This is the amazing part where you find out how long you can comfortably hold your breath with no air in your lungs! Wim explains that this alkalizes the blood so you don't have to breathe.

    2) This is followed by fully inhaling and holding one's breath for 15 seconds.

    There are three pillars to the Wim Hof Method: Breathing and Meditation, Cold Therapy & Committment. Here are the subjects covered each week in the course:

    Go Deep
    Stress Control
    Energy Management
    Inflammation
    Endurance
    Longevity
    Under Pressure
    Spirituality
    Creativity
    Life Adventure

    Exclamation Re: Wim Hof - This Will Revolutionize Our Future!

    The Iceman - Wim Hof Method


    Above all is he like me: Born on April 20th (exact middle between Aries & Taurus = Pleiades) and Wim Hof is born & raised Dutch 5 km (3 Miles) from where I was born & raised (no joke)


    I know about him & his method when he started wayyyy back (more than a decade ago).

    100% Related: 10 Things Only Dutch People Understand:


    Why are most Dutch so blunt & rude ?


    I hear often: The Netherlands is very "small" country ... yeah but did you know Belgium & Luxembourg were originally officially PART of The Netherlands but after the war with France (invasion) it all changed! ... Do you know that Manhattan was originally owned by The Dutch and called "New Amsterdam" (look it up!) ... The Dutch Fleet (most are medium size sailing boats) was 3 times bigger than the British Fleet (but they had bigger slower boats) ... that explains why the "Dutch Global Colonization Effect" is easy to see: Most of Australia met The Dutch before the British ... Indonesia (and part of India) was part of The Dutch Kingdom ... Suriname was part of The Dutch Kingdom ... Parts of Canada had many Dutch Settlers (influences) ... South Africa was part of The Dutch Kingdom and I can go on and on and on ... Like did you know that Japanese for a long time ONLY wanted to trade with the Dutch VOC (mostly Protestants) because they would not interfere in their culture like the Catholics want to do! ... The First Multinational Bank System Ever was created by the Dutch! ... So much that people do not realize!

    The US Constitution & US Deceleration of Independence is mostly based/influenced upon the Dutch Principles:

    The first constitution of the Netherlands as a whole, in the sense of a fundamental law which applied to all its provinces and cities, is the 1579 constitution, which established the confederal republic of the Seven United Provinces. The constitution was empowered by the Union of Utrecht, thus by treaty. Article XIII of the treaty granted each inhabitant of the Republic freedom of conscience.

    After the French invasion of 1794 the Batavian Republic, a unitary state, was proclaimed. On 31 January 1795 it issued a bill of rights, the Verklaring der Rechten van den Mensch en van den Burger. On 1 May 1798 a new constitution, the first in the modern formal sense, the Staatsregeling voor het Bataafsche Volk, written by a Constitutional Assembly, went into force, approved by the National Assembly. The Napoleonic Kingdom of Holland, a constitutional monarchy, was established by the Constitutie voor het Koningrijk Holland on 7 August 1806.

    Side note: Dutch William of Orange lived from 14 November 1650 to 8 March 1702. He became King William III of England and of Ireland on 22 January 1689, and King William II of Scotland on 4 April 1689, in each case ruling as joint monarch with his wife, Mary II, until her death on 28 December 1694, and then ruling as sole monarch.

    All Americans with "Van" or "Van der" or "Van den" in their last names has Dutch roots! (not to be confused with: "Von" which is German word for Van) ... Dutch word: "Van" means "from" and originally only used in The Netherlands for a long time.

    How many know this?

    cheers,

    If I remember correctly from my yoga training, this is the fundamentals of Dragon Breath - and leads to the raising of the Kundalini - the two headed snake of prana or chi.

    Am actually doing this for a month now (after pushing it for years)... what a coincidence.

    The vid Truman posted here is a bit too fast for my taste;
    just reminding everyone that one can slow it down in the settings - i always do it with 75% of normal speed, which suits me better (and maybe you, too).

    17:15 enabled me to skip a couple of weeks in the program - had the urge to take a cold shower immediately.
    No problem. How invigorating! Made me laugh (and enjoy it) while under the water...

    It's really easy with Wim "commanding" it to be so; the real task for me is to do it "without Wim", within myself.

    I recommend it for everyone to try it out. It's fun!

    Here are the scientific experiments at the University Medical Center Saint Radboud that proves that the Wim Hof Method positively affects the immune system and reduces inflammation. After demonstrating that he could be injected with an endotoxin and not get sick, he trained several other men in just four days to be able to do the same thing.
    Scientific literature said it was impossible, but Radboudumc researchers have now proven that it is possible voluntarily to influence both the autonomic nervous system and the immune system

    In 2011 the same researchers monitored the response of Iceman Wim Hof's body to an endotoxin injection as he performed the techniques he had developed himself. It turned out that he produced half the amount of inflammatory proteins healthy volunteers did who did not master his method. Moreover, he hardly showed any influenza symptoms. It seemed that he could suppress his immune response through the autonomic nervous system. But since one finding in one individual does not constitute scientific evidence, the scientists decided to do a follow-up study. For that reason, in 2013, studies were performed on a group of young, healthy, male volunteers: and, indeed, it turns out they are able to influence both the autonomic nervous system and the immune system.

    17:15 enabled me to skip a couple of weeks in the program - had the urge to take a cold shower immediately.
    No problem. How invigorating! Made me laugh (and enjoy it) while under the water...

    It's really easy with Wim "commanding" it to be so; the real task for me is to do it "without Wim", within myself.

    I recommend it for everyone to try it out. It's fun!

    In this video Dr Mark Hyman and Dave Asprey talk about cold therapy and Dave explains why it works vis-a-vis mitochondria. Mark refers to the "the Iceman" (i.e., Wim Hof). It starts at about 20:30 into the video but the entire video is very interesting:

    Just uploaded today:

    RMIT University in Australia has conducted a survey study, exploring the motivation and experiences of Wim Hof Method practitioners worldwide. This will offer insight into

    1) the positive impact of practicing the WHM on health & wellbeing and
    2) any potential adverse effects, which in turn improves safety protocols.

    started today with this breathing technique and have a hard time with holding in the breath as recommended. I have to work on it. Will start taking cold showers today also....we will see....

    Thank you for starting this thread Franny. Great post.

    All spiritual teachers talk also about on how important it is to breath right or to do certain breathing techniques. It is great to have some detailed instructions and guided videos on this.

    Here Wim says it does not matter how to breath...through the nose or through the mouth. (Video 1)

    I did hear something else on this and breath in by my nose imagine pure light goes into my body while breathing in, cleaning the inside of my whole body.

    Then breathing out through the mouth and release all negative energies while doing this. I dont know if this is important, to do it this way. But this is how I did learn and pratice it. Just thought I let you know.

    Hang in there, Whisper, you'll get the hang of it very soon. I started by just using the "breathing bubble" video. After about three weeks I am just doing it on my own.

    As it turns out, I was already using the deep breathing technique on my bicycle using intensive interval exercise. Of course, I wasn't holding my breath like in Wim's breathing exercise, which must be done sitting or lying down for safety reasons. Anyone can use deep breathing at any time, however, when walking or exercising. I've been very comfortable walking around in short pants and a Hawaiian shirt (or shirtless) in freezing weather while deep breathing. I try to incorporate the deep breathing in my day to day life now.

    According to the Mayo Clinic the average adult resting heart rate varies from 60 to 100. (Probably because most people don't exercise enough and they eat crappy food.) My resting heart rate is 44. After four rounds of Wim's breathing technique it goes down to 36.
