Every mountain is climbed... one step at a time.
Hello! Are you interested in healing, personal growth or maybe even a way to help you achieve your dreams. My goal is to help people move past their own, or society’s limitations as to what is possible in terms of health and longevity and achieve the life they desire. It is inspiring to hear about the fantastic super-human feats that this community of Ice-men and Ice-women has shown are possible, however what I want to show people is that it all starts with a few simple techniques that they can implement in an easy way into their current lifestyles. Taking this journey with me will show you that you too can climb mountains, one step at a time!
My personal journey
I discovered the Wim Hof Method when searching for a way to help myself heal from Hashimoto’s (an auto-immune thyroid condition), that developed after a very difficult pregnancy. The medical system offered me only a prescription for life-long medication as a way to address the symptoms and nothing to help me improve my condition. I was a national level ultimate frisbee player and have always held myself responsible for my own health and so this was not something I accepted easily. I decided to do everything I could to get my old health back… and hopefully be able to build it up even further.
In my research on ways to heal I came across the Wim Hof Method. Being an academic, I really appreciated that the practice was being studied and reported on in respected journals and that Wim himself was keen to offer himself and his method up as guinea pigs so that we could learn more about how it works. So I designed my own healing protocol including the Wim Hof Method, diet and lifestyles changes and after about 6 months I went to the doctor to be re-tested and YES! I had actually reversed the Hashimoto’s! I felt great, full of energy and noticed that I dealt with daily stress in a way that was more calm and mindful. My physical condition improved dramatically and I had started playing ultimate frisbee again! While ecstatic with my results, I was disturbed that the doctor was totally uninterested in what I had done to heal myself. I decided that I would do my best to share my results with others and help anyone I could to take advantage of their own healing capacity!
Our journey together!
As an instructor I want to show you that with the right tools, practices and mindset you are capable of so much more than you are led to believe. While not everyone needs to climb a mountain in their shorts, we can all benefit from exiting our comfort zones and experiencing the happiness, health and strength that comes with that.
I look forward to helping as many people as possible to discover their inner mountain, access their real healing and growth potential and then CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN! - One step at a time!
