I tried GOOP’s recovery “bath soak” so you don’t have to

Gwyneth Paltrow has a bath every day. Whether she has always done this or is now just upping her bathing game as GOOP has a line of $35 bath soaks, I don’t know. Apparently, her evening bath is non-negotiable. She must not have to make dinner and clean up afterwards, help with home work, do laundry, … Continue reading

In GOOP Health: Wellness Panem style

I went to the GOOP Health event in New York because I know you wanted me to go. Think if it as repayment for every post of mine you liked or shared. I was on the fence about it, but my friend Dara Kass (also a doctor) convinced me to check it out. She said … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP recommend irrigating your rectum and colon with coffee. Don’t.

It seems January is Gwyneth Paltrow’s go-to month for promoting dangerous things that should not go in or near an orifice. January 2016 brought us vagina steaming, January 2017 brought us jade eggs, and here we are in the early days of January 2018 and goop.com is hawking coffee enemas and promoting colonic irrigation. I suspect … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow to feature doctor who thinks AIDS is a Big Pharma scam at In Goop Health

As today is World Aids Day I feel it is appropriate to point out that Gwyneth Paltrow and her crack team at GOOP are featuring Dr. Kelly Brogan, an AIDS denialist, as one of their medical experts at In GOOP Health 2018 in New York City. In 2014, so when HIV was well-known to be … Continue reading

GOOP gives horrific and harmful advice about thyroid cancer. From a ghost.

This is no Halloween joke. The post is by Anthony William the self-described and strangely medically confident “medical medium.” William claims he was born with a the ability to commune with a high level spirit that (or is it who?) can diagnose medical conditions.  William is a GOOP regular. When GOOP and Paltrow attacked me back … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP are empowering women with psychic vampire repellent

Gwyneth Paltrow and the team at GOOP launched their artisanal, coffee table paywall today.  In the magazine we are treated to GP’s view on health, meaning nasty old doctors with board certifications should stop asking questions and women should just empower themselves with cleanses and detoxes. It doesn’t matter, you see, that science says these … Continue reading

The only thing feminist about GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow is the desire to be the female version of Infowars and Alex Jones

Gwyneth Paltrow recently claimed her detractors don’t do their homework and are afraid of empowered woman. She stated: “The difficulty is that you’re suggesting that people have autonomy over their health and some people love that and some people are like, ‘fuck you, just write me a prescription.’” she says of “challenging medicine as it … Continue reading

GOOP’s physician branded supplements warrant a closer look

A few months ago GOOP rolled out their line of physician approved supplements. The very best supplements curated by experts direct to you for only $90 for one month’s supply or if you sign up for a monthly delivery only $75 a month. The health claims that GOOP makes about these supplements were recently labelled deceptive … Continue reading

GOOP camouflages hormone hints among the hydrangeas

Despite all the GOOP-related press in the past few weeks I still keep to my general frequency of bi-weekly GOOP medical rounding so I can be up to date on their biologically implausible yet expensive health conversations. It seems that after they got all uncensored with me on July 13th there have been no new … Continue reading

GOOP’s misogynistic, mansplaining hit job

GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow have a case of GOOPitis, which according to Dr. Steve Gundry is due to my potty mouthed facts. Or tomato skins. Or something. I find it all very disjointed, inadequately researched, bloated, and mansplainy. I first saw this GOOP letter thing on the train back from a wonderful day in Manchester … Continue reading
