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

Gwyneth Paltrow’s goat milk therapy for parasites is stupid and dangerous

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest woo slinger wants you to believe that not only are you infected with parasites, but that parasites cause almost every illness known to human kind. In fact, they cause every single symptom. Gwyneth is already on board shilling her parasite voodoo in Women’s Health, but apparently she wants to cover all her crazy … Continue reading

If Gwyneth Paltrow is so effing tired maybe she shouldn’t put jade eggs in her vagina

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of Women’s Health, a magazine I shall now refer to as Woman’s Woo or Woman’s Unhealth, and of course the accompanying article contains a lot of Ms. Paltrow’s ridiculous and potentially harmful health claims. Paltrow, however, is not bothered what anyone who might actually know about medicine thinks because … Continue reading

Freezing your genitals at a spa will give you frostbite not better sex

The good people of Twitter alerted me today to the concept of recreational genital cryotherapy. Cryotherapy, for those who may not know, is freezing tissue for medical benefit. The spa, because that’s EXACTLY the place you would want someone to freeze your vulva or scrotum or wherever is at the The Ainscow Hotel in Manchester, … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow is still steaming her vagina for $wellness. She’s still wrong. Here’s why.

In an interview with The Cut non gynecologist, Gwyneth Paltrow extolled the virtues of “vagina” steaming for wellness or something called “swellness.” Sigh. It’s this abuse of the term wellness that bothers just as much as the idea of “vagina” steaming. That wellness is about trying unproven yet expensive mystical therapies that must be healthy … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s toxic lube advice

Today’s episode of Gunter v. GOOP involves the post on lube, written of course by a naturopathic doctor, for Gwyneth Paltrow’s tepidly awaited first sex issue. After all, why ask a board certified OB/GYN when you can ask someone with infinitely less training in both medicine and science. Want to know about naturopathic training, read this … Continue reading

Don’t “detox” your vagina or uterus with a bag of herbs in your vagina. Really.

I woke up to someone forwarding this tweet: Your vagina (and your man), will thank you after you use these https://t.co/9Wx4fIEH0m pic.twitter.com/XscBbvmPOh — xoNecole (@xonecole) January 12, 2016     Yes, some company is selling tiny bags of herbs (they call them pearls) to stuff in the vagina for 3 days to cleanse your uterus … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina & other thoughts on 2015

2015 started out with a bang for me blogging wise. Gwyneth Paltrow, whose health advice makes me think she is equal parts worried well, attention seeker, and bored silly of being rich suggested women get a steam douche with mugwort and other potential allergens and I said, “Don’t do that.” Apparently newspapers, blogs, and magazines … Continue reading

No, your tampon still isn’t a GMO-impregnated toxin-filled cancer stick

A friend just shared this post going around Facebook: The post reports that Dr. Damian Marino, a researcher from Argentina, claims that 85% of tampons he tested contain “cancer-causing glyphosate” and “62 percent also tested positive for AMPA, the environmental metabolite.” This data was presented at the “3rd National Congress of Peoples” (another website claims … Continue reading

Hey Gwyneth Paltrow, a GYN says stop scaring women about bras and breast cancer

Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP is the latest site to stoke false fears about bras and breast cancer (scaremongering being a nice touch for breast cancer awareness month – wraps up the whole October fright fest thing with a pink bow). The post is written by Dr. Habib Sadeghi, a doctor of osteopathic medicine and apparently the person who … Continue reading
