Every human being has miles and miles of vascular system in the body. There can be traffic jams from blockages, think of poison blockages or mental barriers.
The Wim Hof method provides a natural high effect with a body full of oxygen. You will experience tingling and maybe dizziness. Do this breathing technique lying down and make sure you can't be disturbed.
This breathing technique is a powerful de-stressant, your body becomes more alkaline and inflammation is inhibited. It can help clear up depression and trauma. In addition, it improves your focus and sleep quality.
It is best to do this on an empty stomach in the morning and a cold shower after the session. This can be in the form of cold showering. You then start warm and gradually lower the temperature. Showering cold for a maximum of 30 seconds is enough. Try to keep breathing relaxed and talk to yourself in a positive way. Your circulation will improve enormously and you will feel energetic and focused.
Be careful with this technique when you're in a burn out. While breathing, your adrenaline and cortisol levels increase. Normally these hormones are lower after the session than before, which has a positive effect.
