I have covid, but I'm almost completely symptom-free. Here's how you can stay healthy and save lives

The name of the game is: conscious control of the immune system
The name of the game is: conscious control of the immune system

So we got the call today from the nurse. The whole family has covid.

My wife has been feeling poorly for about a week. My children have high temperature. My younger had such a headache yesterday that she fell asleep during the day and slept 'till next morning.

My symptoms have been limited to a mild temperature of 37.5 C and a throat so slightly sore I can hardly tell there is any soreness at all. It's a bit like when you've been shouting and afterwards it feels "funny" to swallow. If I have a headache I wouldn't call it that. It's as though I had had one but took 4 Paracetamols - which I have never done by the way, I don' tuse pharmaceuticals, only 1 or 2 pills at any one time, maybe 2-3 times a year.

So why do I not experience more severe symptoms? Obviously there is no way of knowing how severe my symptoms WOULD BE otherwise, but the fact of the matter is that I started practising the Wim Hof method about 3 weeks ago. Incidentally 2-3 weeks is approximately the time it takes for the body to develop the immunity to sicknesses and for you to learn to control the immune system voluntarily.

For the science study on this go to https://www.pnas.org/content/111/20/7379

For a brief explanation of what this study has found in layman's terms see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6jqaALpEFM

To sum it up, Wim's breathing technique makes your body release Epinephrine, which in turn leads to increased production of Interleukin-10 and other anti-inflammatory agents in the body while at the same time it dampens the pro-inflammatory Cytokine response. Also the accompanying hyperventilation floods the blood with oxygen and also results in a higher number of white blood cells. The white blood cells fight disease and the oxygen ensures faster recovery.

So as a net effect, you don't get sick; if you do have some mild symptoms like I do now, you recover much faster. Not that I can't take this any more - I feel normal. And more importantly, you do not get inflamed lungs and you don't DIE from pneumonia when you have Coronavirus! I would bet a large sum of money that if all those that have died from covid had been practising the WHM, the MAJORITY of them would still be alive. I have no doubt in my mind. I would say 80-90% of deaths could have been avoided.

Think about it. Conscious control of the immune system. No inflammation. How does covid kill again? What's the mechanism? Inflammation of the lungs. End of story. That's how it kills. If you weren't sure then just type "how does covid kill" into youtube and watch the first video that comes up. It's all explained within the first 4 minutes. So what does the WHM do? It prevents inflammation to occur in the body. No inflammation of the lungs - no covid deaths.

Not to say it's a micacle cure, but the FACT is, Wim Hof was the first person in human history known to have an immune system that was able to resist Escherichia coli (E-Coli) endotoxin without getting sick. (Just so you know, according to the World Health Organisation, it is estimated that up to 10% of patients with STEC [Shiga toxin-producing E. coli] infection may develop HUS, with a case-fatality rate ranging from 3 to 5%. https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/e-coli) The next known cases were the 12 volunteers that he trained. Think about it. Before him no human, ever, no matter how strong immune system they had, whether they had a healthy diet, trained, exercised, meditated, took vitamins, NO ONE, EVER beat E-coli before him. You don't have to be a genius to understand what that means. Practising a simple breathing technique gives you MUCH better chances of survival.

Finally, references:

Sources of the Wim Hof studies

Now, there are more since then, obviously because they have done the brain scans now, then they did the whole-body MRI scans to see how the brain controls the body and the immune system. You can find these easily as well.

In video format:

Finally, the technique only takes 10 minutes a day to practise, and Wim shares the technique with the whole world FOR FREE:

Also he has the free app available for download on his official website:
He travels the world teaching people how to never be sick, at no charge. Please consider supporting him.

    I've been doing this too.
    I was exposed directly to a positive person and I never got anything... not fever, sniffles, nothing.
    You're better at explaining all this than me but I completely agree.
    Well done and thanks for posting this.
    Is this still revelant?

    This is the 4th time I've heard of this breathing method. Seems like a sign to give it a try

    If any of the above was to be taken seriously WHO would be ordering people to think them self better and breathe a bit weird.

    What's more worrying is you're passing this nonsense off as a serious way of fending off a pandemic that's coming close to claiming it's second million death in the next week or two. That's more innocent civilians killed in one year, than America managed in the 19 years of the Vietnam War. Do you think they all were no breathing and thinking right?
    • No, if any of the above was taken seriously (as is evidenced unequivocally by the Nature article) then the WHO bosses would be out of business, and along with them millions of doctors and nurses. If you are a doctor who trained for 5-10 years and invested $$$$$ into the training, the last thing you will tell people is how to never get sick again. You do the opposite, you prescribe them a pill that eases the symptoms temporarily without actioning any actual healing i. e. addressing the root cause. Your job, if you want to MAKE A LIVING out of this, will be to SEEM to be an aid. And for most, getting access to drugs that treat surface symptoms will be sufficient. Who cares about the root cause, right? Typical victim mentality. The last thing you will see these people do (yourself probably included judged by your comment) will be the mature decision of taking conscious control (and therefore responsibility) for your own health.

      Did you actually read the studies? Wim was the first person in human history known to have an immune system that was able to resist Escherichia coli (E-Coli) endotoxin without getting sick. The next known cases were the 12 volunteers that he trained, NONE OF WHOM got sick. While the 18 people in the control group ALL got sick.

    • There is a reason they're doing the brain studies and the MRI studies on him, trying to understand how the method works. However, understanding in not a prerequisite of application. You can take charge of your health while these scientists are having fun doing what they feel they should be doing. Just because they don't fully understand how the method works does not mean people should be getting sick and dying unnecessarily in the meantime.

      If you want to wait for the WHO and put yourself at risk, be my guest. You remind me of the people that used to tell me that the WHM is all nonsense, otherwise science would've proven it works. You know what's funny? These same people read the studies when they came out that proved beyond any doubt that it does what it says it does, and then went on with their lives living in the same victim mentality as before, pretending the studies don't exist. You must be like these people. I hope it will serve you well in your life. There are literally thousands of testimonies confirming that using the WHM will result in not getting sick ever again.

      You now have the research studies to back it all up.

      So what are you saying, that you will all of a sudden start meditating and doing T'ummo yoga (essentially what the breathing method is) when the WHO gods tell you that you should? You are waiting for their permission to do what has been proven by science to work? Give me a goddamn break will ya.

      I'm going to be honest. I'd describe you as a fucking idiot. But because you're trying to spread this as a covid cure, it probably makes you a dangerous fucking idiot.

    Please don't pass this off as a cure your probably lucky you've got mild symptoms.
    I've got no problem people trying things like this but along with anything advised by proper health care professionals!

    The mortality rate for my age group is.2%. People with higher mortality rates for COVID-19 also have a high mortality rate for other issues. It's their job to protect themselves. Society should not have to walk on eggshells.

    Ill read more later. How many days in. I was fine for 8 days then it hit and 4 bad ones. Limiting the storm is good and makes sense. I was under emotiknal stress so prob didn't help me when i got.

    You need a bigger sample than one person to say if that method has an effect on COVID-19. Fact is many people are infected without having bad symptoms, this could easily just be a coincidence.
