Well, you can't stay in hyperventilation all the time, and I'm skeptical that chronically ill people need to be voluntarily activating their adrenaline response that often.
No, you are only doing that for 30 breaths per round and you could start with 1 round and fewer breaths. Then you breathe out and hold your breath as long as possible but not pushing yourself. After that, you take a deep breath in and hold for 15 sec.
It seems to have a lot of good effects for a lot of people including me.
But yes, I have been herxing a lot on this in the past, so I recommend starting with the cold.
A shower on the coldest only every morning also helps a lot with mental toughness. It gets easier to do something that you don’t want but is good for you, as you have already pushed so much with the cold shower. When I haven't slept well or when I have been drinking the night before is the hardest. Up when the alarm starts, cold shower, yoga, breakfast, and Wim Hof exercise.
I strongly recommend people experimenting with ending the shower a bit colder than normal. Take small steps, I started just having a bit colder in the end. I now finish every shower on the coldest, but it's only in the morning when I do cold only, and that has taken me a few years.
