The company will also reimburse any unhappy customers who bought the eggs between January 12, 2017 and August 31, 2017.

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
By Maura Judkis The Washington Post Wed., Feb. 28, 2018 We all want to sleep better and feel less stressed out, to have more energy and fewer illnesses, and we’d like to be able to think more clearly, too. If only there were a magical potion we could drink to obtain all of these qualities. Makers of what have been deemed “functional mushrooms” think they have that elixir. The ancient practice of consuming mushrooms for their medicinal properties — a part of holistic medicine — has been popping up in more and more health cafes and packaged goods. They fit into the emerging category of “adaptogenic foods” — foods with natural compounds that promote or restore normal physiological functioning — and trend-watchers predict that 2018 is the year they’ll go mainstream.

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’
