    Today I was stupid enough to click on the "commercial" button in my gmail.
    Find the odd man out.

    "Are you a narcissist?" xxx Goop. Do I even want to open that. It probably contains some bogus confirmation that she isn't a narcissist.

    Oooooh. Yawning requires training. You have been doing it all wrong and here's how you should yawn, according to Gwyneth.

    Yawn #1
    Gently tilt your head back to a comfortable position and allow your mouth to hang open widely while you gently extend into it.

    Contract the back of the throat as if to perform Ujjayi breathing—a whispery breath—which is typically done through your nose with your mouth closed. Breathe deeply through your mouth so you feel the air hit the back of your throat.

    Inhale and exhale completely while allowing your shoulders to relax as you exhale.

    When the yawn comes, reach and extend into it, riding the yawn to stretch the jaw muscles.

    Repeat 8-10 times until tearing starts. As your jaw muscles stretch and relax, and the yawn expands, the lacrimal glands around the eye are squeezed and tearing is induced.

    Yawn #2
    Continue with steps 1-4 above, and when the yawn comes, bring together only the lips. Keep the teeth slightly separated. Creating this shape with your mouth as you yawn will take out more slack in the throat muscles to bring the lengthening and relaxation around the base of the tongue, and further stretch and relax the neck, jaw, and occipital regions.

    Repeat 8-10 times until you begin to tear.

    Explore these exercises throughout the day, especially before bed, to release accumulated energy and tension that may result from conversation and or the vicissitudes of the day.

    Note: Tearing is not necessary for this exercise to be beneficial.

    Just saw an article saying that it would cost $200 to make Gwynnie's breakfast smoothie.
    Gwyneth drinks one of these every morning, whether or not she’s detoxing. Choose your Moon Juice moon dust depending on what the day ahead holds…brain before a long day at the office, sex dust before a date, etc.

    redonkulous 50$ "special dust" aside, all I got from that smoothie is that cordyceps, the little zombie fungus that mind controls its hosts, is a supplement for it.

    HAVE YOU PEOPLE NOT PLAYED LAST OF US?

    To be fair, it looks like the $200 is to get all the ingredients involved and those ingredients would make more than just one shake.

    Halfwit actress’ website may not be the best source of medical advice, says shock report
    A website filled with the wittering voices in Gwyneth Paltrow’s head may not be a better source of health advice than an actual qualified doctor, according to shock claims made today.

    The website, which is relied upon by gullible people with too much time and money to keep them in peak physical condition, has been criticised for content whose health value ranges from ‘no noticeable effect whatsoever’ to ‘this shit will fuck you up’ – leading some to suggest that the whole thing is just a mechanism to use fame to milk wealthy morons.

    Investigators concluded that the closest thing Paltrow has to a medical qualification is that time she replaced Tony Stark’s robot heart in Iron Man, and it would be unwise to assume that meant her advice to blow steam up your fanny is worth following.

    Goop has defended their claims, which include saying that Paltrow’s signature perfume ‘can act as an antibiotic’ and walking barefoot can cure insomnia.

    “It might, it might not,” they told us. “We’ve never actually checked, but that doesn’t mean it absolutely doesn’t, does it?

    “You say ‘deceptive’, we say ‘unsubstantiated’. Just because something hasn’t been proved, that means it hasn’t been proved false either.

    “You and your ‘science’ and ‘facts’ and ‘double-blind peer reviewed studies’. What you feel in your heart is more valuable than any of those things when it comes to wellness.

    “The human body is capable of remarkable things if you just believe, and what better way to show you believe than by forking out a few thousand bucks for our products?”
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Do we all follow Dr. Jen Gunter (@DrJenGunter) for her deliciously snarky take downs of GOOP's bullshit?


    Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP are empowering women with psychic vampire repellent
    Gwyneth Paltrow and the team at GOOP launched their artisanal, coffee table paywall today. In the magazine we are treated to GP’s view on health, meaning nasty old doctors with board certifications should stop asking questions and women should just empower themselves with cleanses and detoxes. It doesn’t matter, you see, that science says these things are at best worthless and at worst harmful. I mean bowel perforation? Whatever. Gwyneth wants us to know that she has even studied up and is ready for smart aleck retorts about the liver and kidneys from doctors, biologists, and anyone who has completed 5th grade science because yes, yes my precious that was before we had flame retardants. You see flame retardants and PCBS and heavy metals can only be removed with expensive ingredients, special doctors, and a tube up the ass irrigating your colon. Why would you go to a board certified toxicologist if you suspected some kind of chemical poisoning when there is lemon juice, cayenne pepper, silicone tubing, foam rolling, and infrared saunas?

    But Gwyneth isn’t just into colonics and such, she’s lit enough to know about medical marijuana. After reading her insightful take one is left wondering if she will find it useful for the insomnia due to her adrenal fatigue just around the time CBD can be sold at the next GOOP shoppe pop up. GP wants everyone to know she is aware of the opioid epidemic and it is here because no one will use “natural” therapies, you know?

    Gwyneth couldn’t torture leeches because they are “live creatures” (awe), but she can torture a honey bee if it can teach her c-section scar who is boss and sell copy. I mean, why tell people about the complications of live bee acupuncture, like thrombocytopenia, Guillain-Barré, dermatitis, or fatal allergic reactions? That isn’t autonomy and certainly isn’t part of the conversation GP feels we should be starting. Why go to a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon if that buckle in your c-section scar is so bothersome when they might want to practice evidence based medicine? Isn’t it better to be curious and free from the oversight of a nasty institutional review board (IRB)? Science doctors only want to take your money and inject things and prescribe pills. The doctors Gwyneth sees are clearly above money and the $70 for Dr. Gundry’s month of supplements obviously only covers cost and the $30 vampire repellent, well, that’s practically free.

    Even though fixing her c-section scar was an important self exploration Gwyneth wants us to know that she personally hates the “logic of perfection,” especially when it comes to kids and teeth. She’s “not opposed to braces” and knows “we live in a culture where it’s actually hard to get a job if you have really messed up teeth.” She faults our society that pushes the ideal that “it’s not okay unless everything looks exactly the same.” We totally get it Gwyneth, except of course your c-section scar. All those magazine covers and your abs and hair and skin routines are totally not going for any kind of perfection.

    Anyway, modern medicine and studies and board certifications are stifling the inner Goddess so Gwyneth and GOOP’s mission “is to have a space where curious women can come…for curiosity and conversation to live. ” Sure, they block reporters who ask pesky questions about fake NASA stickers but everyone else can ask questions.

    To help you on your path to wellness and block out the pesky naysayers Gwyneth has this $30 “vampire repellent” which is a “spray-able elixir” and apparently “everyone at GOOP can get behind’ this gem. It must be a real conversation starter.
    The psychic vampire repellent may not be FDA evaluated, but who cares when it has sonically tuned water, moonlight, love, reiki, and gem elixirs which is totally not left over water from a rock polisher. It must be very potent as there is a double dose of reiki. I’m not sure how they get all that reiki in the bottle because reiki isn’t an object but no conversation needed here because ancient gem elixir physics, duh! One should spray it around one’s face to “safeguard” one’s aura and “banish bad vibes (and shield you from the people who may be causing them).” I mean that’s some potent, women empowering health shit right there, you know? Just don’t empower it into your lungs.

    The take home message from GP and her squad is that there are “billion-dollar industries around people looking like they conform to x, y, or z” and modern medicine just wants your money, but not GOOP and GP. They are just asking that women be freed from the chains of science to get colonics and ask real questions about made up toxins in tampons and to learn about the secret epidemic of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) as recounted by a ghost to The Medical Medium.
    She's brilliant and should be in charge of medical policy.
