Bad GOOP Advice

GOOP posts dangerous, bullshit article on heavy metals

I was hoping I could give GOOP a pass for a while. I have grown tired of the dark side of wellness that is their brand. I’m also tired of doing the job they advertised on LinkedIn for free.    However, someone sent me this atrocious piece on heavy metals and I just couldn’t stay quiet. … Continue reading

GOOP recommends a “sacred snake ceremony” for better sex. I have questions.

I did not make up the term GOOPASUTRA, but honestly it sounds like raw milk pasta, which sounds about as far from sexy as possible. But snakes, right? I mean once you have endorsed a medium as legitimate the next step is clearly a snake charmer. It’s honestly a full on traveling shit show of … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP say the joke is on you if you followed their advice

Imagine if I told you something about health and a lot of experts who knew more than I did pointed out I was wrong. They even provided sources. Imagine then instead of being embarrassed that I had passed false information on to women I doubled down and called my detractors desperate for attention and accused … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP are the Couture of Snake Oil and the Fast Food of Health

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP had another GOOPfest this past weekend. I know because several reporters who attended reached out for comment as I am apparently the only medically certified GOOP expert. What a time to be alive. Some of you may be wondering why I didn’t revisit GOOPlandia? I touched that void and it was … Continue reading

What was the point of In Goop Health?

Since peeking through the Looking Glass that was In GOOP Health I’ve been reflecting on the purpose of it all. Paltrow says they don’t make much profit and that seems right to me. The take from the tickets would have been around $525,000 (500 of the $650 tickets and 100 of the $2000, my best … Continue reading

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

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

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
