An inspirational talk by Rolling Stone writer and NY Times best selling author Scott Carney. Scott went to the Netherlands to debunk Wim Hof as he had already done with other teachers and 'gurus' who made unbelievable claims. Instead of disproving him, he was inspired to learn the Wim Hof Method and understand the science behind the amazing feats of mind and body that Wim Hof had accomplished. From these experiences and research, Scott wrote the best selling book "What Doesn't Kill Us".
In this talk, Scott asks: Have the comforts of the modern age made us weaker? Human biology evolved in constantly changing environments and developed biological mechanisms to let them adapt quickly. But effortless comfort means that biology isn’t active anymore, and the lack of stimulus makes us less resilient. Scott explains how adding varied environmental stimulus can help you regain some of that environmental vigor. He teaches a breathing method that strengthens the connection between the conscious mind and autonomic nervous system to help people boost their immune system, lose weight and put their bodies into environmental equilibrium.
