Posted on 01/09/2012 11:43:11 AM PST by smokingfrog
Gwyneth Paltrow released her GOOP newsletter, Jan. 5, promoting her GOOP cleanse kit, which costs $425, but doctors interviewed by HollywoodLife say cleanses have no scientific proven value and are complete bunk!
Dont spend your money or your effort subjecting yourself to actress Gwyneth Paltrows cleanse or anyone elses, say top NYC doctors.
Cleansing is the equivalent of snake oil, says NYC internist, Dr. Robert Bos.
He adds that there is no scientific proof that a cleanse will help give your digestive system a break, eliminate toxins, rebuild beneficial bacteria or give you more energy, as Gwyneth promises in her GOOP newsletter.
Gwyneths cleanse program instructs you to drink her protein shake for breakfast, have a solid meal for lunch, another shake for dinner and take her GOOP clean supplements (which arent explained) throughout the day.
She claims that her cleanse will give your digestive system a break and will also improve energy levels by bringing in high-quality vitamins and nutrients. She also claims that her program will rebuild beneficial bacteria and eliminate toxins, and she says she has lost weight doing this in the past.
The cost of her GOOP cleanse is $425!
Now heres what top doctors had to say about her claims:

Sounds like a lot of poop!
Any time I feel the need for a good cleansing, I stop in at Tong’s Thai restaurant in Springfield.
A plate of Kang Puk and you get Kang Puk Gut !
I do something similar... if I need a cleaning out, all I need is some Pizza Ranch fried chicken...
A crappy topic!
she’s such a joke isn’t she?
She should get her peanut sized brain GOOPED. Maybe eliminate the Marxist toxins roaming around in that vacuous wasteland of a skull.
“Any time I feel the need for a good cleansing, I stop in at Tongs Thai restaurant in Springfield.

Along the same lines, those of us who are lactose-intolerant get a pretty good clean-out from a pint of Haagen-Dazs!
And an IQ lower than her bra size.
Always with the ‘eliminate toxins’ with these things. Eat a good diet. Want a “colon blow” cleanse, buy generic Psyllium husks and take a glass for a day or two.
If you fly a lot, you sometimes get backed up and that’s always worked for a friend of mine so I bought some, of course it could be the airline’s food. I take a lot of meds so it helps when they screw up your GI tract although with anti-biotic, you get the reverse affect and the last thing you want is Psyllium husks...
Based on the photos from my colonoscopy it appears the colon is completely clean from a simple fast and laxative, in my case I believe it as Go Lightly. Colon walls were pink and nothing else there.
She’s a huge Obama supporter, so why should we be surprised that she hawks another massively expensive fad product that has been proven ineffective?
I hate to make light of lactose intolerant but I used to laugh at it because I thought it was a made up thing but no, I know someone who has it and it is no joke.
My wife made me watch Country Strong. That movie sucked.
then the ho had 3 long term relationships before settling down with current husband (who can't be too bright)
she named her spawn Apple and Moses... enuf said...
She’s always good for some funny comments on FR!
The Kadashians had a spot "at the spa" where Kourtney K. tried to push this treatment on her sister--the oil enema--which was part of the massage. First of all who wants to gets an enema on TV? Then there are the Nude Yoga teachers.
Put a Celeb's puss or message on it..and it sells.
A couple of bucks for citrate of magnesia will “cleanse” the pipes clean as the inside of the barrel on a brand new shotgun.
GP is a GOOP
You know what's funny is that all these 'cleanse' things inevitably mention how John Wayne was autopsied and had a lot of undigested meat (pounds of it) in his large intestine. Sounded nasty and I knew someone who was parroting the same thing so I looked into it and it's an urban legend. I don't recommend doing the same thing as I ended up reading things you will want to scrub your eyes out with Clorox to forget.
It sucks to have such a thing associated with a man's man like John Wayne.
Actors from nepotism have always been idiots; Gwyneth, Sean Penn, John Wilkes Booth....
1) How did the spa go out of business by you, sounds interesting?
2) That sounds like those foot pads that supposedly leech the 'toxins' out of your system and turn brown as a result. I saw somewhere that they tested the end result and the color was oxidation, no heavy metals or 'toxins'.
Pretty much sums up her career too.
I thought it meant she was bathing in the GOOP waterless hand cleaner.
It’s called Anorexia.
In most Northern European populations, and some cattle herding African populations - there is a mutation in the control region that would result in the lactose gene being packaged up (i.e. turned off) in chromatin after breast milk was no longer part of the daily diet.
As a result some populations continue to produce lactase (the enzyme that digests lactose - the sugar in milk) throughout their life.
YAY ICE CREAM!!!!
Never buy a product from someone who named their kid, “Apple.”
As the wise W.C Fields once said “A fool and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.”
There are some “cleansing” products that work, but only when you have a condition they will improve in the first place.
For example, if you have poor digestion, psyllium husks, similar to psyllium seed, like Metamucil, will give the fiber and bulk to improve intestinal tone and speed up your digestion somewhat.
After the stomach uses acid to digest food, it uses bile to neutralize the acid before the somewhat digested food goes into the small intestines. The bile is then reabsorbed and reused. However, bile also tends to accumulate unwanted metals that are also recirculated. For this reason, at long intervals, it is good to consume “water soluble fiber”, because it tends to bind with bile so that it is flushed from the body, so that the liver makes fresh bile.
If you live and work in a temperate place, and don’t sweat a lot, a trip to a sauna could help you skin considerably, as sweat is one means the body uses to eliminate toxins.
There are a bunch of other cleansing techniques that work, but again, only if you need them. Most people don’t.
It's the Gwynnith stimulus program (billfold bulge). Is she donating the profits to democrat re-elections?
Same here. Two servings of the pre-colonoscopy elixir
and the plumbing was clean as a whistle.
I saw that guy once. First though was, “what a sleazy looking dude!”
They should have bought one of my cleansing crystals. Last forever and it also gives you lots of positive energy.
Now that GOOP really works!
I live in Houston.
No trip to the sauna is necessary...
<YAY ICE CREAM!!!!
I have been lactose intolerant for years. Most people of color are lactose intolerant to some degree.
I’m all about ice cream, but find that I can’t tolerate the premium stuff; too much real cream, not enough air! But give me some Blue Bunny and I’m all right, as long as I don’t eat too much at once.
I got 1 scoop of local dairy ice cream at our county fair and was sick before I got home, which took maybe 10 minutes. So yeah, no fine ice cream for me.
My poor diet in the past might explain my posting history to date. :^)
That picture makes poor Gwyneth look like one good, healthy dump and she’d fold in half like a seven-dollar suitcase and follow her own excrement down the porcelain convenience!
So which end does it flush? ;-)
LOL! If anyone looks like a rat leaving a ship without makeup she sure does!
