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

New study shows safety of Internet telemedicine for medical abortion in Ireland

Many women live in areas where abortion is not available. Women on Web (WoW) is a non-profit organization that provides online telemedicine for medical abortion up to 10 weeks of gestation. It works like this. Women fill out a form, it is reviewed by a doctor, and if they meet the guidelines the misoprostol and … Continue reading

An update on the GOOP infection post

Dear Readers, A representative of Dr. Myers’ claims she never said that magnesium is a therapy for infection and since my sources at the event missed her talk I feel I must take the word of her representative for it. I understand the talk was videoed and if it ever appears then obviously we can … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow admits she doesn’t know what the f**k she’s talking about on Jimmy Kimmel

Gwyneth If-you-want-to eff-with-me-bring-your-A-game Paltrow was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and Kimmel was prepared to ask her about some of her Goop sh*t. He asked about earthing, squatting to empty your bladder, and of course the jade egg. Earthing Regarding earthing, i.e. walking barefoot, Paltrow says she really doesn’t know much, but “they say” (I … Continue reading

Florida issuing certificates of nonviable birth concerns me. Here’s why.

Florida just passed the “Grieving Families Act” that allows a parent to obtain a certificate of nonviable birth for a miscarriage between 9 and 20 weeks. At first blush this seems about helping families with closure and I guess this is why it received almost unanimous support across party lines, after all who doesn’t want to help … 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

Bill O’Reilly who targeted Dr. George Tiller now cries about character assassination

Fox has settled sexual assault suits against Bill O’Reilly.  This is fact. Another woman has come forward with similar claims and there is chatter that O’Reilly’s reign at Fox could be coming to and end. O’Reilly is outraged. These claims are apparently false and tantamount to character assassination!   Let those words sink in and … Continue reading

Washington Post embraces alternative facts on adrenal fatigue, fuels death of expertise epidemic

Adrenal fatigue does not exist and by this I mean board certified endocrinologists say that adrenal glands can’t be exhausted or over worked. Internal organs don’t fatigue, it would be a pretty poor evolutionary design if they did. Early Homo sapiens had just a little more stress than we do in 2017, so if adrenals … Continue reading

A chunky, white discharge is not a sign of a yeast infection. Really.

If you pick up a GYN textbook the section on candida vaginitis, i.e. yeast infections, will undoubtedly begin with a description of the supposedly classic symptom of a chunky white discharge (which does sound a bit like a punk rock band name). Ask almost any gynecologist who hasn’t been trained by me and you will … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t have adrenal fatigue because it doesn’t exist

Gwyneth Paltrow has been on a PR push because she is so “effing tired” and wants everyone to know that she has found the cause of her mysterious ailment, adrenal fatigue, and you too can apparently cure/prevent this by buying her carefully curated supplements for $90 a month. I know I said I was going on … Continue reading
