EP 61 - Wim Hof
The Ice Man - Wim Hof is with us today. His passion and excitement are unstoppable. Wim has a message for each of us: “You can literally do the impossible. You can overcome disease, improve your mental health and physical performance, and even control your physiology so you can thrive in freezing temperatures.” Wim Hof has an inspiring book just release, THE WIM HOF METHOD: Activate Your Full Human Potential.
Wim is renowned as the “Ice Man” for his 26 world records for feats of endurance and cold exposure, including the farthest swim under ice and the fastest barefoot half-marathon on snow. He has proven in over eight university research studies that he can consciously influence his autonomic nervous system, measurably reduce inflammation, regulate his internal PH levels and body temperature, and activate his immune system to resist the effects of poisonous endotoxins. These studies show that Wim is able to teach others to achieve similar accomplishments in as little as four days.
This interview is a must listen for a simple and clear guide to a healthier life. Wim Hof even demos his breathing practice with us.
Have a listen, and try the breath work. You will be amazed what you learn and how good you feel.
