I have trained with him for 7 days. The WHM only works for me when I am alone and do not have a casual conversation or when I am in a group all focused on beating the cold. It turns out that you cannot control your breath when you talk!
The extra freedom in not wearing a coat or worrying about the weather increased my happiness a bit. I live in Amsterdam, so the weather can be meh, but not anymore! :D
Reading the article I notice it says that you release opioids. I figured something like this was happening because the WHM is my go to 'drug' for DnB parties.
I am glad that they are trying to get some scientific data on extreme people like him. I have seen some yogis do stuff that are generally believed to be impossible so it's good to take a scientific look at these things.
I have personally tried the Wim Hof method but I can't get used to cold showers during winter.
If anyone reading these comments hasn't seen the Vice documentary they did on him, it's quite interesting. http://www.icemanwimhof.com/vice-documentary Don't recall if it's in that video or I read it elsewhere, but I recall them doing a test with him and around a dozen of the people he has successfully trained in this technique. The scientists injected them all with a virus that should have made all of them temporarily very ill but not one of them got sick. This was another one of Hof's claims that turned out to be validated by science.
Perhaps a bit of a non sequitur, but it's a bit strange that WSU here means Wayne State University. I had assumed it meant Washington State University, and indeed that's the first result on Google when you search WSU. Wayne is not even on the first page of results.
For those looking for the ultimate life & health hack, read all you can on Pranism (also known as Breatharianism), the method that lets you live healthily without eating (although it's better to keep drinking at least water).
Plus, the movie "IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT" features other protagonists such as Yogi Prahlad Jani who have proven the method under full medical surveillance.
