RMIT UNIVERSITY SURVEY STUDY


Explore high-level trends on the impact of the Wim Hof Method around the world.

HELPING PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD

The Wim Hof Method is more than Wim. It’s more than scientific studies. It’s about helping people to live healthier, stronger and happier lives.

It’s the impact the Wim Hof Method has on people’s lives that’s important.

Fortunately, RMIT University in Australia conducted a self-reported survey to ask that exact question.

A GLOBAL SURVEY

An incredible +3,200 people from different countries and backgrounds completed the survey!

Questions included:

  • How much time they spent on Wim Hof Method activities

  • What health-related areas they noticed the biggest improvements in (e.g. energy levels, mood)

  • If their practice helped with any existing medical conditions (e.g. anxiety, arthritis, depression, insomnia)

    All this information meant that we were able to gather enough feedback to find high-level trends about how the Wim Hof Method helps people.

    WHAT IS THE WIM HOF METHOD?

    The Wim Hof Method is a simple, yet powerful method, based on the foundation of three pillars; breathing, cold therapy and mental commitment. The power of the Wim Hof Method is the combination of the three elements.

    Several scientific studies have shown the positive effects of the Wim Hof Method, and current research continues to explore new and exciting potential applications of the Wim Hof Method.

    Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

    Matthew, Australia

    I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

    I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.

    After 3 weeks of daily practicing my medication (Naproxen) for long-standing sciatica has been cut by 80%, and my arm pain and 'pins and needles' following a neck injury 50 years ago has been halved!

    I got anxiety 2+ years ago, and have had panic attacks every day since. Medicine helped a little. I came across your videos and started to walk my 2 miles a day in only a t-shirt at 20F degrees. Within 2 weeks my anxiety went away! I found it to be a miracle.

    I’ve had astonishing results battling addiction with the Wim Hof Method. It has saved my life and is the only thing that worked on getting clean and healthy. I go ahead and get my suffering over with in the cold showers, so I don't have to suffer throughout the day. Pretty good trade to...

    After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.
    Mino, Testimonial Wim Hof

    Learning Wim’s method is like studying from one of nature’s best students. My life long fear of cold is history. I now fully enjoy cold immersions, but the benefits are not limited to cold. I am now a better person and a happier being. I smile when facing life challenges.

    It’s only been 4 weeks since I started, but the results are remarkable! Thank you from the heart for changing my life, my health, and my understanding about my own power and the influence I have on this. I’m looking forward to a nice cold winter in the Netherlands.

    I am 52 years old, and after 10 weeks of the Wim Hof Method I am in the best shape I have ever been. I did 30 push-ups as a test before I started the course, and when I finished I did 100 push-ups for the first time in my life. The Wim Hof Method gives you a good mood, it’s addictive!

    Cardiac and respiratory arrest began my life. Heart defect and cleft palate pushed diseases. Depression, lack of self-efficacy, and post traumatic stress disorder followed. The Wim Hof Method frees me: I am twenty-nine years old, and I love to live. Thank you!

    I was born with Spina Bifida, and was told I would end up in a wheelchair. After incorporating the Wim Hof Method into my daily life I have begun to see results in my pain levels and athleticism. I am no longer looking down the barrel of becoming a paraplegic, and I attribute that in part to the...

    From the 90s to 2012 I developed hayfever symptoms and had to take daily medications in order to cope. The effect of these medications only lasted for several hours. By using the Wim Hof Method training daily, my body has conquered hayfever symptoms since 2013.
