As I explained last week, due to age, physical limitations due to illness and the high temperature city where I live, I have made some adaptations to the Wim-Hof method.

This week has been difficult because for several days I was in severe pain due to an inguinal hernia with ventraccion that I have and that for reasons of the pandemic I have not been able to operate, however I have taken a few minutes a day to perform the recommended breaths.

Lying in bed, with my eyes closed and freeing my mind from the thoughts that the daily grind leaves us with, I have taken 30 breaths, one round for now, and have seen the following results.

I discovered that when I had the pain and I did some additional breaths, the pain dissipated at times, without going away but lessening in intensity, which makes me think that filling the lungs with oxygen can be a good method for those difficult moments and I remembered the breathing exercises that are recommended to women to have a happy childbirth.

Igual en el momento del parto le ordenan hacer respiraciones fuertes antes de pujar para que el bebé pueda salir, sin dudas hay una relación importante entre el oxígeno y la mitigación del dolor.

Also after many years of sedentary lifestyle after retiring from my sports activities I have felt that my lung capacity has decreased, a few months ago we were worried about it, because when walking for short distances I was short of breath.

This week I have noticed that this sensation has diminished and my lungs feel more expanded, the tiredness from walking the same routes has almost completely disappeared.

Likewise, my sleep has been more pleasant and longer, something that is very important for me since, due to my autistic condition, my brain is a machine that never stops and long periods of time must pass in order to have a "restful" sleep as we say around here.

This week I will try to do 2 rounds of breathing and some changes that I will tell you about in the next post.

Remember that nothing is linear, what works for me may not work for someone else, but adapting the method to the conditions of each one will surely have similar or even superior effects.


Hi @joseph1956! I am glad to hear from you, it is good that you have obtained encouraging results from the breathing therapy -wim-hof- and when you notice improvements in your health it is already a sign for you to continue deepening in the practice of this foundation. It seems to me a great method, apparently it is advisable to try it.
Greetings, I hope you have a good day!

Yes, this technique is definitely very good. I have applied it and I have felt favorable changes.

I've been quite fascinated by the Wim-Hof method for some time now and tried it out with some friends who practice every day. They take cold showers and swim in freezing water too. They are super healthy and your testament seems to be proving the benefits of the method too.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
