Default Wim Hof Method?

Anyone here ever try the Wim Hof method? It basically involves a breathing exercise to increase oxygen in the blood and then taking cold showers. Apparently it has been studied and it has shown to really improve the immune system. Here is at least one study:

Some more links to studies and some explanations:

Anyone ever try this? Here is a link to the breathing

I did the breathing and took a cold shower this morning and felt like it energized me quite a bit for the day. I think I am going to keep it up. Though a cold shower in the winter is JARRING. Instantly my breaths were super short and shallow and my thinking was thrown off quite a bit while the water was on me. But I am excited to do it again tomorrow...I will likely think differently once the water hits me though. I might be able to actually slow down my breathing and calm down a bit after a bit. I guess we will see.
