Breathing is a simple act we constantly do to stay alive, yet often take for granted. As you are reading this, you’re breathing and most likely not giving it a second thought. Within our breath, lies tremendous potential. The breathing techniques of the Wim Hof Method allows you to unlock that.
Developed by Wim Hof, holder of twenty-one Guinness World Records, this method uses your breath to increase energy, reduce stress levels, and strengthen immune response to more effectively deal with pathogens.
The Wim Hof Method is one I’ve personally used, and mentioned in a previous post of mine. After six months of using his breathing technique, my blood tests came back clear, after previously suffering from leukemia.
Many people have benefited in the same way from the Wim Hof Method. Doug Steiny is one of those people whose lives were completely changed.
In 2014, Doug had fallen ill to whooping cough while taking care of his wife, who at the time had cancer. After three months of coughing and suffering from a compromised immune system, a friend, who is also a doctor, insisted he go to the hospital.
Within 12-hours of that conversation, Doug was completely paralyzed by an autoimmune disorder, called Guillian-Barre. His doctors had given him a diagnosis of a 50% chance of permanent paralysis. With a recovery time of 18 to 24 months, Doug was determined to fight.
Five months after being hospitalized, Doug came across the Wim Hof Method due to his son. He started the 10-week course and after practicing everyday for eight months, Doug was completely symptom free.
At 64 years old, Doug is the epitome of health. Between deadlifting 300 pounds and a total of six mile weekly swims in the ocean, Doug has an incredible amount of energy.
The Wim Hof Method can unleash the incredible potential you have within you. All it takes to start is that first breath.
