Here's a short preview of my talk given at Infinite Man Summit. I tell my story of 3 years of battling crippling depression, anxiety, and being suicidal every day. I healed myself without western medicine, and I learned a lot of incredible truths about healing along the way. www.infinitemansummit.com
Happy New Years! Only 9 or so months ago I felt like I was dying every day. I was able to heal myself because of my spiritual practice, detox, discipline, and will to live. I want to share with you what it's like on the other side of getting clean, and how you can start cleaning your vessel that is your human body.
For the last 3 years I had crippling anxiety, panic attacks and depression. No treatment and no one in the western medical system could help me. There is no such thing as mental illness. You are not doomed to whatever labels that the broken system has given you. There is a purpose to whatever it is your dealing with, you can get through whatever challenge is thrown your way. I've dealt with every symptom in the book and been able to cure it through detox. If you are struggling, know that you are not alone
This is my crazy spiritual journey with ayahuasca, iboga, and ketamine and other medicines, all in an effort to heal my depression and anxiety. Don't believe everything they tell you about mental illness. There is more going on in this world.
I shot this when I was in the peak of my sickness, as a video to tell my story and so they'd have something to remember me by if I didn't make it.
Update! Since posting this, I'm in excellent health!!! It's chilling to think back on my original intentions of making this video. I wanted something out there in case I passed into the next world.
If you are suffering from anxiety and stress, this video is an absolute must watch. It is not the stories that we create daily that are actually important. It is the underlying anxiety that exists independent of circumstances that must be sourced for true freedom to occur.
Check out the video below for more info on cold-water therapy.
Cold therapy is not a new invention; it is among man’s earliest medical treatments. The Edwin Smith Papyrus (3500 BC), the most ancient medical text, repeatedly mentioned cold therapy
Cold therapy Stimulates activity of BAT (brown adipose tissue) or Brown Fat. It Fights inflammation and Increases lifespan (as per studies done on fish, flies, and mice)
Increased longevity via cold-exposure could be due to hormesis. Hormesis is a concept that animals get stronger and more efficient if they are exposed to environmental stresses.
Cold temperatures act like a mild workout for the nervous system, which adapts and strengthens it. we are too comfortable and not exercising our positive stress response. It also improves lymphatic circulation, stimulates blood flow and improves cardiovascular circulation, balances endocrine system, reduces muscle inflammation. It really activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
It really helps you penetrate fear and train yourself to have delayed gratification. After a hot shower I am cold, after a cold shower I am warm.
Wim Hof (“the ice man”) has been instrumental in showing the world that, through specific training techniques using cold exposure and breathwork, a person is able to control their autonomic nervous system. Before this research was done on Wim, the autonomic nervous system was largely thought to be beyond conscious control.
It also Enhances detox pathways and Strengthens Immune System.
