Controlling the autonomic nervous system
The autonomic nervous system controls and regulates all the functions of our internal organs, and even some muscles. Furthermore, this system controls our immune system. Most of the time, we are not aware of our autonomic nervous system. For example, we do not sense a high blood pressure or an unhealthy heart rate, but both can be very damaging for our bodies in the long term. Therefore, a healthy nervous system is essential. For a long time, we believed that the autonomic nervous system could not be voluntarily influenced. However, Wim Hof has scientifically proven to be able to control the autonomic nervous system with the Wim Hof Method. Follow our free Wim Hof Method Mini class to get acquainted with the method.
How to control the autonomic nervous system
Breathing is a part of the process within the autonomic nervous system, and it can be controlled to achieve various positive results. With the right technique, you can learn how to manipulate your breath to your advantage. The breathing techniques of the Wim Hof Method help you to keep your autonomic nervous system in shape. You will be able to take control over your autonomic nervous system and live healthier, happier and more relaxed.
With extensive training and exposure to cold (which leads to an artificial stress response created by the body), Wim Hof has developed the ability to control his breathing, heart rate and blood circulation. Results of a scientific study show that, with the techniques of Wim Hof, the nervous system and immune system can be voluntarily influenced. One example of where this is very useful is in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. Because it is the brain that creates the artificial stress response, everybody with a brain should be able to learn how to control their autonomic nervous system. It is just a matter of using the right method and dedicated training!
