Gwyneth Kate, A 44 years old American actor, singer and a food writer is running a Lifestyle page by the name of GOOP. The website launched a campaign of “Lifestyle Stickers” by the name of “Body Vibes”.
The company claimed that these special stickers are helpful to cure you from anxiety, balance of your body’s natural frequency and relieve in pain. And these stickers are available for $60 per pack only.
The concept about GOOP’s wearable healing stickers is “human bodies operates at an ideal frequency, but everyday stresses and anxiety can throw off your internal balance, depleting our energy reserves and weakening our immune systems. Body Vibes stickers come pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing them to target the imbalances. While you wearing them close to your heart, on your shoulder or arm, they will fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety. The founders, both aestheticians, also say they help clear skin by reducing inflammation and boosting cell turnover.”
GOOP, on Thursday posted about the “Body Vibes” or “bio-frequency Healing” stickers that these “stickers are made with the same conductive carbon material that NASA uses to line the space suit so that they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals wear” the report also said that these Body Vibes stickers are pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing the users to target the body imbalances.
NASA typically does not reply to such ridiculous claims like what GOOP tried, but this time they replied to the claim telling CNN that the carbon materials don’t line in their suits and NASA’s current spacesuit doesn’t even have any carbon fibers in it.
Mark Shelhamer, a former chief scientist at NASA human resource division called it “a load of BS’ and said, “if they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?”
GOOP the statement of NASA’s official removed the NASA reference from their website after Gizmodo initially reported on this disputed claim and released the following statement.
