Inside the Superhuman World of the Iceman

62241 ratings | 4960797 views
Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and proven under a laboratory setting that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will. Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible - but he’s not a freak of nature. To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold. But when Matt and Daisy signed up for the training, they had no idea that the so-called Iceman was planning to lead them on a psychedelic journey across Europe that circled the chasm between science, spirituality and mystery.

Gav Stuart (1 month ago)
its just hyper ventilation essentially. Nothing new there. Your just flooding the body with oxygen. Free divers used to use this method to get a longer breath hold. But it has been abandoned because it is dangerous to do alone. There is a strong possibility that you can pass out. As although you have more oxygen in your body the CO2 still builds up and can become toxic.

Dig all the guitars...... heard he went up to the top of KMJ with his students and got drunk and played music all night, did the breathing the next morning to detox, and came back down....

His technique could be described as gaining root access to your own damn body. It's like you perform these actions, or programs, and then you'll just be able to get in through a back door into the place in your brain, (the directory, say) that was usually only reserved for the ominous admin: the unconscious mind. I haven't personally done all of these things yet, but it really sounds like gaining permissions to manually override your own bodily functions, so of course I'm trying out. This could be such a game changer for so many people... "Be the change" and "take responsibility for yourself" would have to be taken seriously, if everyone really is capable of change/healing on such a profound level.

There really isnt anything "superhuman" to what Wim is doing. Wim lost his wife years ago, and what he does to his body is just a way of not thinking about her. He's only "mentally strong" because the pain of thinking about her is much more than sitting in a bath of ice.

The part where the subtitles said [FOREIGN], well, it wasn’t. The producer, off screen, asked, “Are we taking the vodka to the sauna?” before her reporter replied, “You know nothing about Poland.” It’s all 100% English.
