What is the WIM HOF Method?
Our modern life of convenience, temperature controlled living spaces, and clothing has greatly affected out bodies natural abilities and strength. No longer are our age-old physiological mechanisms triggered by temperature causing us to lose our ability to tap into this powerful healing and energetic resource.
When we choose to go into the cold consciously, with intention, we strengthen our immune system, developing will power and reducing inflammation. Yury introduces you to the Wim Hof Method that will literally reboot your nervous system by stimulating these innate physiological processes.
The Method is based on three powerful pillars
The cold is a teacher, it humbles you and keeps you honest.
Cold water lets you experience the inevitable “now”
Cold water immersion directly triggers the sympathetic nervous system by causing a burst of epinephrine (aka adrenaline) to be released from the adrenal glands. Epinephrine increases the heart rate, pushing blood to the muscles; widens airways allowing more oxygen to be sent to the brain, and mobilizes blood sugars as an energy supply.
This stress cycle happens to us every day, at the dmv, traffic jams, subway, work, home, etc. By putting ourselves through the stress of cold water immersion we learn to use our breath to calm down and invoke the para-sympathetic nervous system that directly impacts our ability to effect the nervous system in our day to day lives.
