What is Wim Hof breathing ?
Wim Hof breathing is a method developed by Dutch adventurer Wim Hof. It involves a specific breathing technique and cold exposure to improve physical and mental health. This method has gained popularity in recent years for its ability to improve immune function, reduce stress, and increase energy levels.
Link between breathing and DMT
One potential benefit of Wim Hof breathing is the release of endogen DMT, a naturally occurring psychoactive compound in the human brain. DMT is known for its powerful effects on the mind and has been used in traditional medicine practices for centuries. It is believed to play a role in spiritual experiences, altered states of consciousness, and near-death experiences.
While the exact mechanisms of Wim Hof breathing and its effects on DMT release are not fully understood, some studies suggest that the method may increase the production of DMT in the brain. This may be due to the increased oxygen and blood flow to the brain during the Wim Hof breathing technique. Studies are showing that it’s likely that the brain is acting like a filter to the consciousness instead of producing it, and DMT is a chemical which can help to open the filter.
The Wim Hof method involves a specific sequence of deep breaths, followed by a period of holding the breath, and then exhaling slowly. This sequence is repeated several times and is often accompanied by cold exposure, such as ice baths or cold showers
Practice breathing with guidance
While the Wim Hof method has been shown to have numerous health benefits, we suggest you to practice it under the guidance of a qualified instructor like our Tribe coach – Ferdinand Thor. It is not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions or for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Overall, Wim Hof breathing and its potential link with endogen DMT offer an exciting area of exploration for improving physical and mental health. With proper guidance, the Wim Hof method may provide a unique and effective approach for improving overall well-being.
