💨 Vaginal steaming 🥫 Fasting and herbs to cure covid 🦶 Walking bare foot to cure depression
It's been a wild ride.
She said that for most women, our wombs were ‘psychic trash bins’ which store negative energy – something that can be cleared by sticking a big stone egg up there, apparently.It didn’t take long for a gynaecologist to call BS on the whole (expensive) practice, as Dr Jen Gunter wrote an open letter to Gwyneth explaining why her vaginal jade eggs were nonsese.
‘I read the post on Goop and all I can tell you is it is the biggest load of garbage I have read on your site since vaginal steaming. It’s even worse than claiming bras cause cancer,’ she wrote.Goop’s advice has been questioned by many (Picture: Michael Tran/FilmMagic)
‘The claim that they can balance hormones is, quite simply, biologically impossible. Pelvic floor exercises can help with incontinence and even give stronger orgasms for women, but they cannot change hormones.‘As for female energy? I’m a gynaecologist and I don’t know what that is. How does one test for it? Organically sourced, fair trade urine pH sticks coming soon to Goop for $77 I presume?’ headtopics.com
Treating ‘long-Covid’ with fasting, keto and herbal cocktailsAfter Gwyneth said she embarked on a ‘keto and plant-based’ regime, with no sugar and alcohol, and fasting until 11am in order to treat symptoms of ‘long-Covid’, Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for NHS England,
warned that ‘serious science’ should be appliedand ‘influencers’ have a responsibility for what they promote.Responding to her healing plan, Powis said: ‘In the last few days I see Gwyneth Paltrow is unfortunately suffering from the effects of Covid.‘We wish her well, but some of the solutions she’s recommending are really not the solutions we’d recommend in the NHS.
‘We need to take long Covid seriously and apply serious science. All influencers who use social media have a duty of responsibility and a duty of care around that.’$120 ‘healing’ stickers ‘made from space suits’Experts were quick to brand purported ‘healing’ stickers no more than expensive plasters after Goop flogged the items, which could cost up to $120 (£85) a packet.
The stickers, called Body Vibes, were touted as a product to hydrate, detox, boost mood, and improve sleep – as well as ‘better your self love’ – with ones available for your skin, hangovers, focus, endurance and anxiety.It was also claimed the stickers were made of ‘the same conductive carbon material Nasa uses to line space suits’. headtopics.com
Body Vibes later released a statement apologising for the ‘miscommunication’ after it was confirmed they were not made of such material.In a statement to Insider, Goop also said: ‘As we have always explained, advice and recommendations included on Goop are not formal endorsements and the opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of goop. Our content is meant to highlight unique products and offerings, find open-minded alternatives, and encourage conversation.’
Getting stung by bees wards off inflammation and scarringGwynethclaimed she deliberately got stung by beesbecause it rids the body of inflammation and scarring.Speaking about the apparently age-old process to the New York Times in 2016, she said: ‘I’ve been stung by bees. It’s a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy.
‘People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful.’ Read more: Metro »

Gwyneth Paltrow broke down and ate bread during quarantine. What was your lowest point?Open thread: the pandemic dragged even celebrities down so how were the rest of us mortals meant to hold it together? ConquestOfBread Does she have celiac disease? Otherwise, I fail to see how this could, in any way, qualify as a low point. Losing an old school friend to Trumpism and far-right conspiracy theories.
Gwyneth Paltrow broke down and ate bread during quarantine. How did you surprise yourself?Open thread: the pandemic dragged even celebrities down so how were the rest of us mortals meant to hold it together? I wasn’t able to attend the funeral of two very good friends. But this seems pretty trivial now when compared to Gwyneth eating a couple of slices of Warburton’s. Poor Gwynie.. I'm glad she didn't have to go to Food bank.. May God bless her 🏦 🙏 🙄 Hold the front page. I think most of us normal folk shovelled chocolate by the tonne and drank alcohol by the drum. Daily.
