Happiness Through Suffering
We all have struggled with one ailment to the next—physical or mental. It’s hard to come by someone who hasn’t been debilitated by anxiety, stress and depression at one point in their lives. Could this icon in health and wellness be onto something? Tapping into our evolutionary strength that shows perhaps we have the ability to the control stress and anxiety that could all be a product of the modern society?
Introducing The Wim Hof Method
Wim Hof got his nickname “The Iceman” by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.
With his Wim Hof Method, Wim Hof teaches ordinary people how they can take more control over their own bodies. During his popular step-by-step online video course, Wim will teach you everything there is to know about his powerful method. You will start with breathing exercises and meditation, and will gradually expose your body to low temperatures by taking cold showers. Within weeks you will feel more energetic, less stressed, and better rested. Thousands of people from all over the world already benefit from the Wim Hof Method.
“Hitherto, both the autonomic nervous system and innate immune system were regarded as systems that cannot be voluntarily influenced. The present study demonstrates that, through practicing techniques learned in a short-term training program, the sympathetic nervous system and immune system can indeed be voluntarily influenced.”
