The Remarkable Power of the Wim Hof Method in Aiding Cancer Remission

Dive into the astonishing account of how the Wim Hof method dramatically increased white blood cell counts and assisted in cancer remission for two young children.

The Wim Hof Method, renowned for its groundbreaking techniques involving cold exposure and specific breathing exercises, has numerous proponents claiming its profound effects on health and well-being. One of the most touching narratives concerns the story of two young girls and their journey towards cancer remission.

A Mother's Desperate Plea

When a mother approached Wim Hof with her two children, aged five and seven, both suffering from brain tumors, she was desperate. The children could not undergo the regular chemotherapy treatment due to their weakened immune system and low white blood cell count. This is where the magic of the Wim Hof Method comes into play. As Wim Hof put it, "tears are okay but let's go to work now."

Eight Days to Transformation

Without forcing, but introducing the children to the cold and the breathing techniques playfully, an incredible transformation occurred. In just eight days, a blood sample revealed

"their white blood cell count had multiplied 10 times."

Following this, they became eligible for chemotherapy, leading one child completely on the path of healing and the other halfway through.

Push for More Research

The success of this method has led Wim Hof to advocate for more extensive scientific research into his techniques. His call to arms is clear:

it should be studied so much more, to provide even more compelling data.

With the potential to help millions worldwide, rigorous scientific research is the need of the hour. Wim Hof has a strong belief in the powers of nature to heal and wants to substantiate this belief with concrete scientific evidence.

A Shift in Scientific Understanding

One of the groundbreaking moments for the Wim Hof Method was when Wim, and subsequently others trained by him, managed to resist the effects of an E.coli bacteria injection - a feat deemed impossible before. "Anybody can do what I can do," says Wim Hof. In an experiment where 16,000 people got sick post-injection, Wim Hof and those he trained resisted the adverse effects, fundamentally changing our understanding of the human body's capabilities.


The Wim Hof Method, while still being in the early stages of global scientific recognition, has showcased time and again its potential benefits. Stories like these serve as a testament to the power of the method and its role in assisting in conditions as severe as cancer remission. As Wim Hof says, "Nature has it."
