Lower your blood pressure

You can use the Wim Hof Method as a workout for your cardiovascular system. The cardiovascular system, sometimes also called the circulatory system or vascular system, includes the blood, heart and blood vessels. The main causes of death in the US, and 31% of deaths worldwide, are due to cardiovascular diseases. High blood pressure is called the ‘silent killer’, because it often has no symptoms. One of the ways to help keep a low blood pressure is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The Wim Hof Method can help you to lower your blood pressure. Follow our free Wim Hof Method Mini class to get started.

Lower your blood pressure

You can lower your blood pressure by practicing the Wim Hof Method. The impact of exposure to cold, as well as the WHM breathing techniques, strain the little muscles in your veins. They close (vasoconstriction) to keep the heat in, and fully open up (vasodilation) to get the heat out of the body. When these little muscles in the veins work properly, there is not much pressure on your heart. It does not have to pump that hard, because the veins do all the work, and your blood pressure stays low. Besides that, Wim Hof Method practice also helps lower your heart rate, strengthen your immune system, flush out waste more efficiently, and absorb nutrients and oxygen into your cells more effectively.

I am 52 years old, and after 10 weeks of the Wim Hof Method I am in the best shape I have ever been. I did 30 push-ups as a test before I started the course, and when I finished I did 100 push-ups for the first time in my life. The Wim Hof Method gives you a good mood, it’s addictive!

Learning Wim’s method is like studying from one of nature’s best students. My life long fear of cold is history. I now fully enjoy cold immersions, but the benefits are not limited to cold. I am now a better person and a happier being. I smile when facing life challenges.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I got anxiety 2+ years ago, and have had panic attacks every day since. Medicine helped a little. I came across your videos and started to walk my 2 miles a day in only a t-shirt at 20F degrees. Within 2 weeks my anxiety went away! I found it to be a miracle.

Cardiac and respiratory arrest began my life. Heart defect and cleft palate pushed diseases. Depression, lack of self-efficacy, and post traumatic stress disorder followed. The Wim Hof Method frees me: I am twenty-nine years old, and I love to live. Thank you!

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
