Gwyneth Paltrow is known for films such as Shakespeare in love, Emma or The talent of Mr. Ripley, but in recent years the actress has turned to her role as an entrepreneur in front of Goop. The interpreter has become an icon of healthy living, although this work has earned her more than one controversy.

She was previously widely criticized for selling egg-shaped jade and quartz stones on her website to introduce into the vagina, objects to which she attributed properties such as regulating the menstrual cycle or increasing bladder control. This product earned him a fine of 145,000 euros for misleading advertising. Now the artist has again generated controversy following statements about her diet and the treatments she follows to stay young.

Gwyneth Paltrow's controversial diet

Paltrow has given an interview to the podcast The Art of Being Well and has revealed her diet, which has attracted attention for being too restrictive. "I have dinner soon. I do a good intermittent fast. Usually I eat something around 12. In the morning I eat something, things that don't raise blood sugar, so I drink coffee. But I love the soup for lunch. I take bone broth for lunch many days," he revealed.

"For dinner, I try to eat according to the paleo diet, so lots of vegetables. It's very important for me to do detox," she added. It should be noted that, despite having many followers, some associations have already pointed out the risks of the paleo diet. " Although the paleo diet includes fresh whole foods like meat, fruits, and vegetables, it excludes important healthy food groups like dairy and grains. There is no evidence to support the Paleolithic diet as a long-term healthy eating plan. People who follow long-term paleo diets are at potential risk of nutritional deficiencies," warns Dietitians Australia.

Somewhat less controversial were his statements about physical exercise. "I try to do an hour of movement. I take a walk, do Pilates or my Tracy Anderson routine," he revealed.

Gwyneth Paltrow admitted to intravenous and rectal ozone therapy

In the interview, Paltrow also talked about intravenous substance use as part of her wellness routine. "I love IVs, I was one of the first to use them. I love to use glutathione intravenously. A slightly more random one, phosphatidylcholine, is my favorite IV when I encounter it. They are hard to find. They make me feel good," he explained.

It seems that Gwyneth is not afraid when it comes to trying treatments, and she also claimed to have tried rectal ozone therapy. "I have used ozone therapy rectally. It was very weird, it helped me a lot," he acknowledged.

Gwyneth Paltrow justifies her controversial statements

After receiving a lot of criticism for her routines, Paltrow has justified herself through Instagram. "I was doing the podcast with my doctor, someone I've been working with for over two years to deal with some chronic stuff. I have persistent covid, so the way it manifests for me is with very high levels of inflammation. I've been working with Dr. Cole to focus on foods that don't inflame — lots of cooked vegetables, all kinds of protein and healthy carbs to lower inflammation — and it's been working very well."

"Gwyneth Paltrow responds to criticism for dangerous health habits after saying on a podcast that she only drinks broth for lunch before exercising."

"This is based on my medical results, on many tests I've done. It was a conversation with my doctor, it wasn't advice for everyone. It's what has worked for me and has been very powerful and positive. It doesn't mean I eat like this every day. And, in fact, I eat more than vegetables and bone broth, much more. There are also many days when I eat what I want, like chips. But my base is to try to eat healthy," he added.

What is rectal ozone therapy that Gwyneth Paltrow has tried?

As a result of Paltrow's interview, many doubts have arisen around rectal ozone therapy. "In rectal ozone therapy, ozone is administered through a catheter gently inserted into the colon through the rectum. Rectal insufflation is also one of the fastest ways to receive ozone, as it is easily absorbed through the walls of the colon," they explain from the IV Boost clinic.

Apparently, this treatment is used to boost immunity, improve blood circulation, protect against viruses and bacteria and reduce oxidative stress, and is used for diseases such as cancer, diabetes or fibromyalgia. However, from Cleveland Clinic emphasize that this therapy could cause an air embolism, pain or fever, and at the moment there are not enough studies to support its effectiveness.

Gwyneth Paltrow uses an infrared sauna

The star revealed in The Art of Being Well the treatment he follows after training. "I do a dry brush and get into the sauna. I stay in the infrared sauna for 30 minutes," he said.

"An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to generate heat. In general, people like saunas because they cause reactions similar to those caused by moderate exercise, such as heavy sweating and increased heart rate. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than a conventional sauna. This makes an infrared sauna an option for people who can't stand the heat of a conventional sauna," Mayo Clinic says.
