(BBC-US)   Gwyneth Paltrow says COVID gave her "long-tail fatigue"; says a "functional practitioner" prescribed "intuitive fasting" with a "plant-based" diet and "infrared sauna." Meanwhile, the NHS says it's all "not something we'd recommend"   (bbc.com) divider line

She wants people to know what her vagina smells like. Ewwww.
 
2021-02-26 2:06:09 PM  
She's a billionaire by pushing that kind of garbage to people.

It seems like something a good cooch steaming would fix.  That's my advice, as a semi-functional practitioner.
 
2021-02-26 2:18:43 PM  
I read the headline on my laptop screen from a distance and thought it actually said, "the functional practitioner prescribed intuitive fisting." Since it involves Gwyneth Paltrow, that did not strike me as odd.

Before or after the steaming?

I'd be willing to go up close and check.

Cows have a plant based diet. If I eat beef, I'm basically eating grass.

She describes her crap as "long-tailed".  Which I think is healthy.

I mean yeah. I'd love to set up a charity or a pac of some kind to scam the people with the least money.

But I'm just not evil enough.

growinthings: How many times does the AMA have to tell this nut cake, that she's not a Dr. and stop handing out medical advice????????????


This. Even though I can sort of see she's maybe scamming willing fools and giving part to charity, the presentation of products as medically approved is unacceptable.

She dumped Chris Martin a while back.

Aight, let's break this down.

If she means a "functional medicine" doctor, then that's great.... in theory.  I see one, and she's been very helpful in managing my genetic condition/disability.  But I'd imagine that Gwenny here purposely sought out a quack.  And as we know, quacks come in all forms.

Infrared saunas are nice.  They won't cure cancer or anything, but they're good for some things.  I'm sure Gwenny is using it wrong.  And it's not any kind of diet supplement.

"Intuitive fasting"?  Ugh, see my point about quacks.

Plant-based diets are good!  But I assume that to Gwenny, this means "go outside and eat the grass."  Again, even good things can be done wrong.

It's like, she ALMOST has good ideas, but when something positive comes along, she does it in the worst way possible.


If my naturopath (an NMD, who can prescribe meds, etc, because in Maryland they're not allowed to be quacks) or my FM doctor, or my acupuncturist, or yoga teacher ever caught me doing any of this crap, they'd section me.  They'd 5150 my ass so fast, and they'd be correct in doing so.

Why does ANYONE listen to anything this woman says?!
 
2021-02-26 3:54:00 PM  

orezona: So if she gets cancer some day she'll beat it by sun bleaching her asshole?


If she got cancer and started chemo, I'd be suspicious of chemo.  And I'd probably doubt her diagnosis because it was likely given by a psychic or unicorn light healer* or some other woo practitioner.

*It's a "real" thing I saw once, real in that it exists.  Google it if you want to have a laugh.

Spoiler: when horses die, they become space unicorns.

Here's a thought I had: filling, selling, and shipping water bottles. Georgia Water, for the Southern Man's discerning taste.

I get it for dirt cheap, like 0.05/gallon, so why not sell it for $1 or $5 at sporting event parking lots or to a desert country across the world? It's a good hustle. It's all marketing.

As much as I hate this snake oil peddling bullshiat artist, I hate her idiot followers even more. But the person I absolutely hate the most in this insanity? Me, when I grin and bear it in the name of civility when I encounter this repellent and toxic idiocy in person.

The AMA is just a professional association / lobbying group for medical professionals that has no legal authority to a damn thing.

This lady subscribes to GOOP. She follows her grass-fed diet up with ivermectin, for that inevitable parasitic infection. What's cool is it protects against Covid too!!! Killing two birds with one bajingo stone!

Paltrow said she had caught the virus "early on".
"In January, I had some tests done that showed really high levels of inflammation in my body."


I have doubts that she actually has had Covid.

There seemed to be a thing for a while with people self-diagnosing early Covid, I think to try to convince others that they could not be contagious, because they had already had it.

I'm not sure what long tail fatigue is. We need pictures of her tail to see if it looks fatigued.
