Wim Hof Method Price Review

What a value has Wim Hof Method for its price?

Price of Wim Hof Method video course is $199 or €179. Isn’t it too much? There is just an advice to breath, meditate and touch some ice in the WHM.




If you are gonna have a fun day at the beach, buy it!  The bigger the price of WHM the bigger the immediate pleasure. Don’t miss it. Enjoy it!

Guys of Wim Hof’s Method have done great job of attracting people’s attention to WHM. Climbing mount Everest just in shorts isn’t a cheaply arrangeable event. It costs 30,000 $ as the very minimum doing it wearing just shorts of course.  Medical research also isn’t a low cost entertainment.

If you are gonna to make the long shoot, and to become the owner of the beach, not just a one who have some fun at it, than don’t buy it. Value is in what you become not what you buy. To become better with Wim Hof’s method you’ll have to implement particular actions as everyday’s habits.

Wim Hof Method is a way to suppress body’s stress reaction.

Most of the people are over reactive to stress situations. They waste their steroid hormones – cortisol and testosterone in seconds by diving into anaerobic catabolism of glicogen. So they are gonna die in the cold water or ice in a blink of an eye. And it is how they feel it. Staying in ice longer than an hour is mostly a marketing trick, as ice is a good heat insulator, liquid whater doesn’t. It would be a bit harder to swim in the icy water that long time of 80 minutes, as Wim Hof did to make the record.

Stress management methods are:

  • Exposure your body to icy water, cold shower taking for example. However openair swimming is much enjoyable.
  • Slow motion and balancing exercises, joga for example.
  • Practicing stillness in stressful situations, holding breath for example.
  • Give your muscles a workout. Swimming, running and bar exercises are the best.

Cold shower taking

Taking cold shower is a good way to normalize your cortisol and dopamine level. It makes cold mind literally. Cold water creates huge spike of cortisol to handle the shock. Body learns to calm down to keep its energy in cold environment. Long term result of icy shower is impressive stress resistance in everyday’s life. Cold shower also stops you from binging on dopamine boosting habits and keeps your motivation in optimal range.

Do not take cold shower if

You are exhausted or feeling sick. Fatigue says your cortisol resource is already depleted. Adding a shocking stress to tiredness may leave you with dangerously low steroid hormone level after. It opens a time window for viruses and bacteria to activate and attack your body.

Purpose of life and junk happiness

Visu zīdītāju (Mammalia), arī cilvēku dzīves mērķis ir saglabāt dzīvu un nodot tālāk savu DNS pēcnācējiem. Lai realizētu šo mērķi indivīdam neizbēgami ir jāiegūst alfa statuss kādā grupā starp sev līdzīgiem. Cīņu par statusa iegūšanu regulē hormonu sistēma pilnīgi automātiskā līmenī.

Taču cilvēka smadzenes ir pietiekami lielas, lai tās spētu radīt tādas neironu saites, kas simulē dzīves mērķa, jeb laimes sasniegšanu – kāda laimes hormona – seratonīna, dopamīna, oksitocīna vai endorfīna izdalīšanos, kas nav saistīta ar konkurenci sava DNS izplatīšanā.

Redzamākie piemēri tam ir visa veida atkarības – alkoholisms, narkomānija, datoratkarība, saldumatkarība. Visa veida domāšanas un uzvedības ieradumi, kas regulāri atkārtojas, bet neveicina indivīda statusa celšanu kādā sociālajā grupā. Galvenie atkarību vaininieki ir hormoni serotonīns (atzinības, pārākuma un svarīguma sajūta) un dopamīns (sajūta, ka kaut kas ļoti labs un nozīmīgs tūlīt būs rokā).

Neadekvāta serotonīna veicināšana izpaužas kā “galvā sakāpšana”. 

Taču Visbīstamākie ieradumi, kas veicina atkarību rašanos ir saistīti ar dopamīnu.

Kādā eksperimentā zinātnieki peles smadzenēs ievietoja elektrodus, kas stimulēja dopamīna izdalīšanos. Elektroenerģiju šo elektrodu darbībai varēja nodrošināt pele pati griežot speciālu ratu. Pele skrēja ritenī bez apstājas vairāk kā diennakti, aizmirsdama par ēšanu, dzeršanu, gulēšanu un būtu tā turpinājusi līdz savai nāvei, ja zinātnieki neapžēlotos par nabaga dzīvnieku un neatņemtu tai šo izpriecu. 🙂

Dopamīns rada sajūtu, ka tūlīt tiks sasniegts kaut kas ļoti svarīgs. Kā maratona skrējienā, kad jūs esat līderis un uzvara ir vien pāris soļu attālumā. Smadzenes darīs visu, lai šo uzvaru gūtu, jo tās asociē to ar iespēju pieaugumu sava DNS izplatīšanai. 

Parastās atkarības – alkoholisms, kaloriju uzņemšana, tv skatīšanās nevienam īpašu izbrīnu neizraisa. Bet, piemēram, ja kāds stundas laikā vairākkārt jautā vienu un to pašu telefona numuru, kuru katrreiz to arī saņem, var šķist dīvaini. Tikai ne pašam jautātājam, jo šis cilvēks tādā veidā ir iekāpis savā dopamīna “ritenī”, no kura laukā to izdabūt var vienīgi reāli nāves draudi.

Cilvēka smadzenes ir pietiekami lielas, lai spētu izveidot šādas nekurienē vedošas neironu saites un dāvātu laimi un apmierinājumu ar dzīvi tur, kur patiesībā tās nav. Dopamīnam ir tāda iezīme, ka katrā nākamajā reizē ir jāpalielina ieraduma doza vai frekvence, lai sasniegtu ekvivalentu apmierinājumu. 

Neural chemistry of shynessKautrīgums un neiro ķīmija

overcoming shyness

We all take time to get used to (or habituate to) a new stimulus (a job interview, a party) before we begin to explore the unfamiliar. After all, a novel stimulus may serve as a signal for something dangerous or important.

Shy individuals sense danger where it does not exist.

Their nervous system does not accommodate easily to the new. Animal studies by Michael Bavis, Ph.D., of Yale University, indicate that the nerve pathways of shyness involve parts of the brain involved in the learning and expression of fear and anxiety.

Both fear and anxiety trigger similar physiologic reactions:

muscle tension, increased heart rate, and blood pressure, all very handy in the event an animals has to fight or flee sudden danger. But there are important differences. Fear is an emotional reaction to a specific stimulus; it’s quick to appear, and just as quick to dissipate when the stimulus passes. Anxiety is a more generalized response that takes much longer to dissipate. Dr. Roy King, chief investigator of the project conducted at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Palo Alto. King’s study, a small one, found low levels of the key brain chemical, dopamine, in 11 shy men examined in what may be the first analysis to associate the neurochemical to a normal personality trait.

Dopamine is a substance that is crucial to normal neurological function

And abnormally low levels of dopamine have been associated with Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and other disorders. But King insists his findings do not suggest that shy people have a greater predisposition to these dysfunctions. ”I did go into the study with the intention of seeing if high levels of dopamine were associated with increased levels of social activity,” he said. In animal research, drugs that increase dopamine levels — such as amphetamines and cocaine — tended to increase social activity in rodents. ”So, I reasoned that if such social activity as exploring holes is important to rodents and increased when dopamine levels rose, then social activity was also important to primates, particularly humans.” To King’s surprise, it was not high levels of dopamine that stuck out like a sore thumb in his study but the markedly low levels in two-thirds of his test subjects, the people whom he said expressed difficulty in social situations and who also had tested as being clinically shy. King had administered personality tests to 16 men. The five who were found to be extroverted showed normal to slightly above-normal levels of dopamine. ”Depressed people are very often shy, so now we have to extend this study to see if normal people test the same way — that is, if we can get them to undergo all of the procedures,” King said. His study supports recent work conducted at Harvard University by child psychologist Jerome Kagan, who has found that some babies appear to be born shy. This was determined from the way they respond to strangers.

In addition to genetic causes, there is also evidence that social anxiety disorder is caused by chemical disturbances in the brain.

It is probable that four areas of the brain are involved in our anxiety-response system: the brain stem, which controls cardiovascular and respiratory functions; the limbic system, which controls mood and anxiety; the prefrontal cortex, which makes appraisals of risk and danger; and the motor cortex, which controls the muscles. These parts are supplied with three major neurotransmitters: norepinephrine, serotonin, and gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), all of which play a role in the regulation of arousal and anxiety. Research shows that “dysregulation of neurotransmitter function in the brain is thought to play a key role in social phobia. Specifically dopamine, serotonin, and Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) dysfuncition are hypothesized in most cases of moderate to severe social phobia.” Researchers continue to investigate whether neurocircuits play a role in the disorder. If this hypothesis proves to be true, it will clarify that there are genetic causes to social anxiety disorder However, the neurobiological information alone clarifies that there are biological causes to social anxiety disorder. *   *   *

Today’s word demands social interaction – both in love and business.

For this, we need to stimulate the oxytocin of the people we meet. Oxytocin is a chemical, produced in the human brain, that is so important in creating social bonds that it has been called the “love hormone.” It encourages people to overcome their natural wariness when faced with risky situations, a necessity when deciding whether to mate or do business with someone. Now you can spray this on before you go on a date or to a meeting, in order to inspire love and trust in the people you meet.
