MS Relief

MS, short for Multiple Sclerosis, is a disease that affects the nervous system. This disease damages the insulating covers of nerve cells, impairing the connection between different parts of the nervous system. As a result, neurological symptoms like muscle weakness, loss of coordination, and loss of sensation can occur. Since there is currently no cure for MS, managing the disease and relieving its symptoms is key to improving quality of life. A growing number of MS patients use the Wim Hof Method to find relief from symptoms caused by MS. You can learn more about the method by following our free Wim Hof Method Mini class.

Symptoms of MS

Multiple Sclerosis is related to many different neurological symptoms, and their manifestation depends on the specific parts of the nervous system that are affected by the disease at any given time. Symptoms can gradually worsen over time, or occur in isolated attacks, followed by partial recovery. People with MS rarely share the same combination of symptoms.

Symptoms of MS include:

  • - Eye failure
  • - Loss of energy
  • - Nausea
  • - Sore muscles
  • - Sensory symptoms (such as tingling sensations)
  • - Ataxia
  • - Failure of speech
  • - Cognitive failure

MS treatment

Since there is no cure for MS, the clinical treatment of MS is mainly focused on slowing the progression of the disease, on preventing attacks, and on speedy recovery from attacks. This is usually done by using corticosteroids and other types of medicine. Additionally, doctors frequently prescribe MS patients muscle relaxants, and medication that reduces fatigue.

MS relief with the Wim Hof Method

The Wim Hof Method is a powerful method, developed by ‘Iceman’ Wim Hof. Because his method helped him to achieve extraordinary things (such as his incredible collection of over twenty Guinness World Records) Wim made it his mission to share the power of the Wim Hof Method with the rest of the world. It is a combination of breathing, commitment, and controlled exposure to cold, which helps people from all shapes and sizes to take control over their body and mind.

MS patients use the Wim Hof Method to relieve their symptoms in a number of ways. For starters, the combination of specific breathing exercises and cold showers is known to strengthen the body’s immune response, which has a positive effect on the reduction of inflammation associated with the development and progression of multiple sclerosis. Moreover, damaged nerves are known to perform poorly at higher temperatures. Unsurprisingly, MS patients who incorporate cold showers into their daily routines report serious benefits such as regained feeling in body parts that had lost sensation, increased energy, and even recovery from MS related urinary difficulties.

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.
Gregor Testimonial Wim Hof
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!

From the 90s to 2012 I developed hayfever symptoms and had to take daily medications in order to cope. The effect of these medications only lasted for several hours. By using the Wim Hof Method training daily, my body has conquered hayfever symptoms since 2013.

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.
