Dear Gwyneth Paltrow we’re not f**king with you we’re correcting you, XOXO Science

Dear Ms. Paltrow, I understand you recently said that anyone who is going to fuck with you better bring their A game.   I’m pretty sure you don’t mean comment on your recipes but rather the growing exasperation from medical professionals and journalists alike at the almost constant debunking of the health “advice” and all … Continue reading

Regarding reproductive rights we already have President Mike Pence

Among the chatter about the possible illegal activities of the Trump administration there is of course talk of impeachment. Some shake their heads and say no, President Mike Pence would be worse for reproductive rights. To this I say we already have Mike Pence’s misogynistic-fact-absent-forced-birth agenda in the White House. Nothing will get worse because … Continue reading

Don’t put ground up wasp nest in your vagina

Sometimes to distract myself from the hot mess in the White House I Google unusual vaginal therapies and today’s BINGO comes from that gynecological gem that is Etsy, purveyor of not only vaginal herb balls but also of balls of wasp detritus and bark meant for the vagina.   What, you ask, are oak galls? … Continue reading

The harm and hypocrisy of Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP distilled to 1 image

Yesterday GOOP sent out 2 tweets. The first on cocktails and the next on the staggering cancer statistics. Life comes at you fast, you know? GOOP is obviously oblivious to the fact that alcohol is carcinogenic. Don’t know or don’t care? Probably don’t care to know as talking about the health risks of alcohol interferes … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP still want you to put a jade egg in your vagina. It’s still a bad idea.

GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow are so into their jade eggs they are doubling down on the practice. Who am I kidding, a new shipment of jade eggs has hatched and so GOOP is back to flogging them with a letter from an eggthusiast who was dismayed by all the negative press in January. GOOP is just … Continue reading

How much vaginal discharge is normal? I made a roux to demonstrate.

It seems more and more women are troubled by the symptom of vaginal discharge. I’ve been running a clinic for vaginitis for 20 years and over the past five years I have definitely noticed an increase in the number of women who are concerned about their normal vaginal discharge. Some women even believe that any … Continue reading

Toxic hypocrite Gwyneth Paltrow wants you so wasted at the GOOP health event you need an IV

Gwyneth Paltrow is not content with spreading her quasi-medical trumpery via her website. Our lady of the perpetually worried well is bringing her deathly fear of non-existent toxins and chic chicanery live to Los Angeles with an event called In goop health. There for a price ranging from $500-$1,500 (depends how close one wants to get … Continue reading

“Vaginal Kung Fu” could injure your vagina

Allure in their bid to out Goop Gwyneth Paltrow in our post-jade egg society asks if “Vaginal Kung Fu” is the secret to better sex?   By vagina Allure and I mean pelvic floor muscles (the muscles that wrap around the vagina). I am an expert in these muscles. I treat pelvic floor muscle conditions every single … Continue reading

Trump appoints Charmaine Yoest, our index Aunt Lydia, to Health and Human Services

Trump has appointed Dr. Charmaine Yoest as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at Health and Human Services (HHS). This is why you should care. Who is Dr. Charmaine Yoest. Let’s start with what she is not, a doctor. She has a Ph.D. in political science and is as science-abhorring-pro-life crazy as they come.  Regarding abortion … Continue reading

An artificial womb may one day help preemies, but not for many years. Why the hype?

The news has been all over a study on premature fetal lambs being maintained in a Biobag (i.e. outside of the uterus) and growing and developing normally. This technology is specifically being developed with extremely premature infants in mind, the kind of babies who are just a week or two away from survival. Babies who … Continue reading
