Has Anyone Tried The Wim Hof Method?

Has Anyone Tried The Wim Hof Method?

Does Weather Affect You? Good Or Bad?

Does Weather Affect You? Good Or Bad?

I live in NY and the weather can be difficult. We have four seasons, so you never know what kind of a day you're going to get! I have RA and OA, each one having it's own set of issues. I'm thinking about moving to SC where my son lives, but not sure since it's such a big move. I love warmer weather as it makes me feel better. What does everyone think about weather and our medical issues?
