     Wim Hof, also known as “The Ice Man”, holds 26 world records for doing things in extreme cold. He also single-handedly rewrote science. Wim organized a group study, where all participants were injected with the flu (even Wim’s genetically-identical twin!)- a practice often used to test the immune system. Wim was able to beat it with no medical assistance, yet everyone else became very sick. How? The secret is breathing- and thereby controlling the parasympathetic nervous system. Add this to cold exposure and you have the foundations of “The Wim Hof Method” (Download WHM App: Apple iOS / Google Play) – both show enormous benefits across the body and mind.
