The Wim Hof Method is a holistic approach to health and wellness that combines elements of cold exposure, breathing techniques, and meditation. The method is named after Wim Hof, a Dutch extreme athlete and self-proclaimed “Iceman,” who has used these techniques to achieve seemingly superhuman feats, such as running a marathon in the desert without water and climbing Mount Everest in shorts.
The core principles of the Wim Hof Method are based on the idea that by controlling our breath and exposing ourselves to cold, we can gain greater control over our bodies and minds, and improve our overall health and well-being. The method consists of three main pillars:
Cold exposure: This involves gradually exposing the body to colder temperatures, starting with cold showers and eventually working up to ice baths and other extreme cold therapies. The goal is to train the body to adapt and become more resilient to cold.
Breathing techniques: These involve specific patterns of deep, controlled breathing that are designed to improve oxygenation, increase energy levels, and promote relaxation.
Meditation: This involves practices such as mindfulness and visualization, which can help to improve focus, reduce stress, and increase overall well-being.
The Wim Hof Method has been the subject of numerous scientific studies, which have shown that it can have a number of health benefits, including improved immune function, reduced inflammation, and increased mental clarity and focus. Many people have also reported improved sleep, increased energy levels, and a greater sense of overall well-being after practicing the Wim Hof Method.
How to do The Wim Hof Breathing:
We recommend practicing right after waking up while fasting, or before a meal when your stomach is still empty. Just follow the steps below:
1) Inhale deeply through the nose or mouth, and exhale unforced through the mouth, letting the air out. Fully inhale through the belly, then chest and then let go unforced. Maintain a steady pace and fully utilize the diaphragm. Repeat this 30 times.
2) After the last exhalation, inhale one final time, as deeply as you can. Then let the air out and hold for as long as you can without force. Hold until you feel the urge to breathe again.
3) When you feel the urge to breathe again, draw one big breath to fill your lungs. Inhale to full capacity. Feel your belly and chest expanding. When you are at full capacity, hold the breath for around 15 seconds, then let go.
4) Repeat this process for 3 times!
5) Close your eyes, relax and go with the flow! 🙂
You may feel tingling in the hands, feet, or face. These side effects are completely harmless. But, if the sensation of light-headedness gets too intense, just pause until you feel settled and then continue.
Listen to your body and go with the flow.
