By Cherise Seucharan StarMetro Vancouver Sat., Oct. 27, 2018 VANCOUVER—Hot Dog Water, an art installation in the form of a satirical wellness company, was turned away from this weekend’s Goop summit after attempting to distribute samples to attendees. Proclaimed “CEO” of the company, Douglas Bevans, set up a “picnic” stand just outside the In Goop Health summit at the Stanley Park Pavilion on Saturday to promote a drink that he claims is “keto-compatible” and can “increases vitality.” Attendees of the Goop summit paid $400 for a ticket to a day of wellness, yoga and meditation under the banner of the Gwenyth Paltrow-lead Goop. Bevans was joined by a team of Hog Dog Water “extraction experts,” who were distributing samples of the products to passersby. He said that the location outside Goop’s first Vancouver summit was a deliberate choice to draw attention to potentially false … [Read more...] about ‘Hot Dog Water’ gets turned away from wellness event

The company will also reimburse any unhappy customers who bought the eggs between January 12, 2017 and August 31, 2017. A district attorney in California argued that the company used misleading, inaccurate information to convince customers that the eggs might help their hormone levels or increase bladder control. Goop says the products will continue to be sold on its site. A “vaginal egg” will not balance your hormones, regulate your menstrual cycle, or help with bladder control. For Gwyneth Paltrow’s beauty and wellness company Goop, those scientific facts have come with a fine. On Tuesday, Goop settled a lawsuit brought by … [Read more...] about Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop must stop making bogus claims about its $66 ‘vaginal eggs’ because of a legal settlement.

By Adina Bresge The Canadian Press Thu., Aug. 23, 2018 Gwyneth Paltrow-backed lifestyles brand Goop is making a push into Canada, but critics in the medical community say they’re ready to push back.

By Karen Heller The Washington Post Wed., June 13, 2018 CULVER CITY, CALIF.—At the In Goop Health summit, the third manifestation of Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle cosmos, a huggy stranger named Brian Donahoe asks if he might jam a finger into our left ear while compressing our right jaw with another. Our face is misaligned, he informs us in the nicest possible way, which stockpiles stress and creates dysfunction. Donahoe is a master motion mechanic at the Human Garage, which is not a metaphor for the body — although we will hear plenty of those here — but because the practice got started in an actual garage. “We recognize all truths in all modalities,” he says. “We’re the only ones talking about gravitational forces and atmospheric pressure and what that does for the human being.” Donahoe swabs the palate of our mouth, then squishes our right small intestine like a panini. Human Garage recommends a 16-session, … [Read more...] about Go ahead, hate Goop — Gwyneth Paltrow is having the last laugh
TORONTO—Gwyneth Paltrow’s natural lifestyle website Goop, which has been criticized widely for promoting potentially dangerous products based on pseudo-science, is now recommending a do-it-yourself coffee enema to “supercharge your detox.”The $135 (U.S.) Implant-O-Rama is the latest offering being touted on Goop’s website featuring health, fitness and beauty products that the actress has said she plans to make available to Canadians.The idea of using coffee as a colonic to detoxify the bowel and the body has been around for a long time, but it’s been widely debunked and there’s no scientific evidence to support it, said Tim Caulfield, a health law expert at the University of Alberta and a vocal critic of the culture of celebrity-based health advice.“You could do damage to your bowel,” Caulfield said Tuesday from Edmonton. “I think this is absolutely absurd, potentially dangerous and there’s no way the consumer should … [Read more...] about Coffee enema from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop website called ‘absurd, potentially dangerous’
