Did you know that you may not be getting enough oxygen? Which is crazy because the single greatest element that you require as a human is oxygen! You can go for days without food and water, but just try to hold your breath and you immediately see how critical oxygen is.
You may be slowly choking your own cells of this precious oxygen and you don’t even know it!
I have been all around the world hunting superfoods, formulating special herbal supplements and learning about natural ways to stay healthy and optimally fit. When I wrote SuperLife: The Five Forces That Will Make You Healthy, Fit, and Eternally Awesome, one of the life forces I talked about was oxygenation and how important it is to your overall health. But most of us are not getting enough of it unless we learn how to get more consciously.
I have been learning about oxygen for years, but when my fellow workout buddies Laird Hamilton and Brian Mackenzie (founders of XPTLife.com along with Gabby Reece) told me about what Wim was doing with the Wim Hof Method and I began doing the breathing techniques, I quickly realized this was the best way I had discovered so far to better uptake oxygen and create an oxygen-rich environment in the body.
I was hooked! Not to mention I appreciated the huge inner peace, balance, and new levels of awareness Wim’s work also takes you to. In addition to getting all the oxygenation benefits from the breathing I also fell into the deepest meditation, receiving all of the health benefits that meditation provides at the same time!
Wim’s method is like a multipurpose tool!
Since I had previously studied and looked into oxygen and the body’s ability to both use and better utilize it, I knew that food, herbs, and water/hydration were intimately connected to the body’s ability to handle even higher states of oxygen utilization. CLICK TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE
