If you were in the Arctic and you made a hole in a frozen lake would it be too cold to drink with a straw or would it be similar to water that has been in a freezer for two hours?

I published a short e-book about Wim Hof Method and personally practice it. It became #1 in "New Releases" in Neurology. If someone is interested, you can grab it for only a few dollars!

How can staying for 15 minutes in water that is 2 Degrees Celsius kill a person? I have no problem staying without a jacket as long as the temperature is above 0 degrees Celsius.

wait it can kill people? i have been swimming in frozen lakes since i was kid. in my language it's called avantouinti, and almost all finns can do it. we drill a hole in the ice and go swimming, some can be there half an hour, some even longer. it's not that weird if you got nordic genes.

He is stronger than the pain at that moment but I wonder for how long .... referring to those doctors, who think you can over come nerve pain by relaxation and positive thinking. I wonder how many dental patients would be willing to go through operations after some training. I can tell you cold freezing water is nothing compared to what pain patients have to go through because their doctors have these great 'new' ideas or are brainwashed to hate medicines nor know how to treat pain effectively. Like you do not go to the bar to get sure the drink never hits you. Sorry, partly I agree you can train not to feel, but its dangerous and if you are in pain you can easily cause new damage without noticing (It depends on how severe of course.) All in all its a great way to enjoy the nature but you should not force people to suffer - especially the rest of their lives. Nobody can last severe pain for decades - read the papers.
It's called adaptation.

Alextor 13 (4 months ago)
He trained his mind to not feel cold, you just have to believe and convince yourself of it. But I guess most think he is just enduring it, but that's normal because they are looking for a logical answer to this

He says that he is stronger than the pain. Then he must be stronger than the power of thousand pissed of 9yr old kids.
KeithLSRP (5 months ago)
I do the same thing as him for my cold showers, cold showers are really good for hair and acne-proned skin, first I practice my breath, nose to mouth to get my heartbeat as slow as possible and then I just throw a serie of punches while under ice cold water, it does work!
KeithLSRP (5 months ago)
it's all about psychic, just think about the ice cold water as a bully that needs to get taken down, that's how I do and I can stay 10 minutes under ice cold water in my shower, you just need to let the rage or your power out, idk lmao

Our whole ecosystem is made to keep humans from mental challenges A sofa for comfort a TV for distraction Hot showers We humans are made to feel and experience life to the fullest that's what kept us strong for millions and millions of years Our government is trying to dehumanize us by not letting us life and making everything a push of a button or tap on a screen away Want pizza order some Wanna switch the TV channel press a button need food use a microwave want entertainment grab your phone Humans dont live no more we exist and we only exist to be a slave to the system we voluntarily got caught up in Comfort is killing us slowly Diabetes cancer overweight depression anxiety the feeling of uselessness or the fear to loose your stuff people live in fear fear to loose their comfort that is killing them in the first place We are not slaves in the term we know it... we are slaves beyond that we are mental slaves and there is no way to go unless you accept living and experiencing like wim
