Hitherto, both the autonomic nervous system and innate immune system were regarded as systems that cannot be voluntarily influenced. The present study demonstrates that, through practicing techniques learned in a short-term training program, the sympathetic nervous system and immune system can indeed be voluntarily influenced. Healthy volunteers practicing the learned techniques exhibited profound increases in the release of epinephrine, which in turn led to increased production of anti-inflammatory mediators and subsequent dampening of the proinflammatory cytokine response elicited by intravenous administration of bacterial endotoxin.

Voluntary activation of the sympathetic nervous system and attenuation of the innate immune response in humans

The year was 2014. Not long ago, but plenty of time for the information to spread to every human on Earth considering the significance of the information and the science behind it. In May 2014 a number of major science journals, like Nature, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), published the findings of years of research into how it is possible to consciously control the immune system. They found that a simple breathing technique that has its roots in the Tibetan practice of Tummo:

results in the release of large amounts of Epinephrine in the body, which in turn leads to increased production of Interleukin 10 and other anti-inflammatory agents, while at the same time it dampens the pro-inflammatory Cytokine response. Furthermore, the accompanying hyperventilation floods the blood with oxygen and also results in an increase in the number of white blood cells. The white blood cells fight disease and the oxygen ensures faster recovery.

This was known back in 2011 following studies conducted on celebrity daredevil Wim Hof (aka The Iceman), however it took 3 more years of research to confirm that his adaptation of the breathing technique featured by the Tibetan Tummo yoga (which has since become known as the Wim Hof Method) can be learned and the results produced by anyone.

When one practices the above-mentioned breathing technique, the net effect is that you don't get sick; if you do suffer some mild effects of a more serious viral or bacterial infection, the symptoms will be less pronounced and you recover much faster. And more importantly, you do not get inflamed lungs and you don't DIE from pneumonia when you have Coronavirus!

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

So my question is, if we have known for 6 years now that it is possible to voluntarily influence our own immune response, reducing inflammation, why have you all been living sedentary lifestyles for all these years? It's not even like you had to make an effort, you are already breathing - you just change the pattern for 10 minutes a day, it's literally easier than washing your hands with soap. To wash your hands you need soap, and you need to get to the sink, to practice a breathing technique all you need is air and you can do it anywhere, in any position!

If you all had been practising the WHM it would not be possible to have inflamed lungs and develop pneumonia, and the Coronavirus death toll on this planet would be exactly ZERO, or in any case, much less than what it is. It would have come and gone virtually unnoticably. Normally we would have a bunch of pseudoskeptics crying "where is the evidence" and "show me the proof", however in this case the research studies have been ongoing for well over a decade and the findings have been published in major respected peer-reviewed science journals. (Needless to say, this has not changed the stance of said pseudoskeptics.)

Why, then, has seeing the evidence made no difference to people, and why has this information not been shared and promoted by the health organisations (other than because there is no money to be had from a healthy population that never gets sick) or at least by the people themselves. This is inexcusable in the age of the internet, when nearly every human on the planet has access to the entire collective human knowledgebase in their back pocket.

ommm,ommm,ommm, ommm, ommm, if this would have really worked as long as they have been doing it, and as many westerners that have been there and seen that through the years,and i mean hundreds if not thousands. don't ya think it would have caught on by now.

You are forgetting that the masses need to live their lives sick and tired. There are so many opportunities and money to be made that way.

But if you believe Westerners are the pinnacle of evolution, keep taking those shallow breaths.

didn't say anything about being the pinnacle of evolution. what i did say is that if there was anything to it, and knowing how humans are it would have been all over the world and more people would be doing it. don't put words in peoples mouths

(Must resist urge to joke about putting stuff in someones mouth)

But to be honest there is a lot of ongoing research about how different styles of breathing can help with a variety of conditions.

You are right, except that you are wrong, utterly wrong in many ways. Yes, humans have been breathing for a long time, you are right that far.
However how do you explain the following fact?

Wim Hof was the first person in human history known to have an immune system that was able to resist Escherichia 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%. www.who.int...) 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.

In light of this, how exactly do you propose your remarks about humans having been practising breath techniques and meditation for thousands of years is relevant to this topic in any way whatsoever? They were practising OTHER types of breathwork. Not the Wim Hof Method. (DUH!)

And what do you base your outrageously false assumption that it "would have caught on" anyway? No, it would not have caught on. The stress-reducing effects of meditation have been known by modern science for a LONG time. Does that mean that every human that lives stressful lives practise meditation in order to reduce their stress levels? It also reduces blood pressure. Does everyone with high blood pressure practice meditation then, in your opinion? Do you actually believe that? Are you serious?
