This video aims to clarify some things about what is happening in the body when you do the Wim Hof breathing technique. It is a very valuable technique and I'm quite certain it has improved my health personally, and has improved my meditation focus. However, the explanation I often see given for what is happening when you practice the breathing technique is incomplete and can be misleading. For example, the tingling you feel is due to a lack of oxygen availability, NOT because you have more oxygen. If someone wanted to push harder thinking they're getting super charged with Oxygen this could be detrimental. I have a lot of respect for Wim Hof and don't intend to criticize him at all. I simply want to clarify some points about certain physiological processes so it can help more people get the most out of this very interesting and useful technique.
★3:20 - My breathing is a bit too fast here. See Wim's demonstration at 1:28 for the proper pace. Just to be clear: when I do the breathing at the proper pace the Pulse Oximeter shows the same results, the same tingling patterns arise and the same phenomenon I describe will occur (increased breathing volume leading to hypocapnia and decreased oxygen availability as per the bohr effect.)
