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