Gwyneth Paltrow was asked to stop spreading misinformation by the NHS England Medical Director after suggesting Covid could be long treated with? “Intuitive fasting”, herbal cocktails and regular visits to an “infrared sauna”
The Hollywood star, who markets unproven new age potions on her Goop website, wrote in her latest blog post that she caught Covid-19 early and has since suffered from “long-tailed fatigue and brain fog”
Paltrow said after seeking advice from a functional medicine practitioner, she was told this was a case where the path to healing would be longer than usual ????
Then she started a “keto and herbal” Diet, with fasting until 11am every day, “lots of coconut aminos”? and Sugar Free Kombucha and Kimchi Paltrow went on to recommend Madame Ovary Supplement and Seedlip of their brand, the incredible herbal non-alcoholic cocktails
She added: “I do an infrared sauna as often as I can, all for the sake of healing”â ????
Paltrow also suggested that there is evidence of such a diet being effective, “I’ve done a great deal of research and found some great things to support what I do,” she wrote
However, your unproven advice led to a stern reprimand from Prof Stephen Powis, the national medical director of NHS England, who urged influencers like Paltrow to spread misinformation
He said: “In the past few days I have seen Gwyneth Paltrow unfortunately suffering from the effects of Covid”We wish her all the best, but some of the solutions she recommends are really not the solutions we would recommend in the NHS”
Powis added: “We have to take Covid seriously for a long time and apply serious science”All influencers who use social media have a responsibility and a duty of care
???? Like the virus, misinformation is cross-border and mutating and evolving I think YouTube and other social media platforms have a real responsibility and opportunity hereâ ????
In 2018, Goop agreed to pay substantial compensation for unproven claims about the health benefits of the infamous vaginal eggs it sold, according to information from Santa Clara officials who are part of a group of California prosecutors who filed the lawsuit eggs could balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent uterine prolapse, and improve bladder control
Last year she started selling a This Smells Like My Vagina candle through her Goop brand. She later revealed that the follow-up would be called This Smells Like My Orgasm
