How To Lower Your HR With Breathwork Which May Improve Blood Pressure And Hypertension

After teaching weekly breathwork classes and monthly Wim Hof workshops for a few years, I have tracked participants' feedback for commonalities.

A common theme is that once people adopt a regular breathwork practice, they have lower average blood pressure. This often happens if they have a history of hypertension.

How do I lower my HR?

Being able to instantly lower your heart rate even when facing physical or mental stress is a simple and valuable tool. I believe practicing this type of slower breathing is the starting point to lowering your blood pressure consistently.

I have even had some people get off of high blood pressure medician they've been on for 20 years. (Shoutout to Mary Anne!)

Here is a video where I give you a few options and demonstrate them.

Also, here is a beautiful study on how the correlation of controlling your heart rate may lead to an overall reduction in hypertension.

I hope this is useful, and I wish you all happiness, health, and strength.
