Publisher's Summary

Note to listeners: This is an unofficial summary and analysis of Wim Hof’s Wim Hof Method designed to enrich your reading experience.

The Wim Hof Method by Wim Hof will describe a method that combines breathing exercises, cold training, and commitment. The method is named after Wim Hof, the extreme athlete who brought these three components together. It is also named after Hof for practical reasons: He is already well-known for his many appearances on television showing how his body is able to deal with extreme temperatures.

The method is based on Wim Hof’s many years of training in the natural environment. For a long time, he has tested his body's limits by exposing himself to increasingly extreme challenges. An important discovery made during this process was his ability to control his bodily functions in a way that science had not deemed possible.

For example, anyone can lift their right hand and scratch their nose with their index finger, but no one can fight bacteria that have been injected into their arm. Hof can do that. He can influence and control his autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system regulates human functions such as body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and breathing, and determines whether blood vessels should dilate or contract. In other words, the biological functions that happen in your body automatically.
