Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she has COVID for long haul flights
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 5: Gwyneth Paltrow arrives to the Grand Opening Event of the 1st West Hollywood Hotel on November 1, 2019 in West Hollywood, California. (Photo by Morgan Lieberman / FilmMagic) In a new blog post for Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness and lifestyle brand, the actress and executive director revealed that she is one of the many people suffering from long-term side effects of COVID-19. Paltrow revealed that she had the virus “early on” and has since faced fatigue, brain fog, and inflammation. But fear not: As you’d expect, the Goop founder has already put together a guide detailing the products she used to heal – including a $ 8,600 (£ 6,129) gemstone necklace. (It’s meant for hiking, okay?) Researchers estimate that around 10% of COVID-19 patients have long-term symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, headache, loss of taste or smell, and joint pain. This is evident from a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. People who deal with long-term side effects often call themselves long distance drivers. “We don’t know why it happens. It’s a neglected area of science. But it’s very real, “said Dr. Paul Pottinger, director of the Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine Clinic at UW Medical Center, previously told Refinery29. “These patients may have survived the viral infection because they have a very robust, active immune response. This kills the infection, but has consequences for the entire body. “Dr. Pottinger advised people who have persistent problems after recovering from COVID to speak to their doctor. Paltrow chose to see one of her favorite functional medicine practitioners, Will Cole (a chiropractic doctor; not a doctor), who told her that her recovery would be slow and then recommended “intuitive fasting,” sugar and alcohol cut out … and apparently a long list of shoppable items, ranging from vitamins to face oils to the necklace mentioned above. (She can’t go out without a chain, but is limited to “just” that one option of $ 8,600 (£ 6,129) on her hikes if you’re wondering.) People will do whatever it takes to make a profit, and the COVID The pandemic has created an opportunity for scammers and money-hungry companies to harness our collective fear of the virus (and the broken health system) to promote supposed cures and products. During the pandemic, wellness brands used buzz words like “immune boosting” to sell their products. As early as April 2020, a California doctor was accused of fraud for selling “COVID-19 treatment packages” online, which are supposed to help prevent and cure the virus. In fact, Goop has already come under fire for promoting the non-existent flu-preventive properties of elderberry chew on its website. To address this, the US Food and Drug Administration has sent out warning letters to companies selling fraudulent products claiming to “prevent, treat, alleviate, diagnose or cure coronavirus disease.” Of course, Paltrow is careful not to suggest that any of these expensive, redundant products is a cure for long-lasting COVID symptoms. The hiking boots (and the hiking chain – I can’t get over them) are paired with a label that vaguely suggests the benefits of “moving the body” and “exuding toxins” but does not purport to treat side effects. However, their approach is to take the line of deception and false advertising in the name of selling vitamins, powders, skin care products, and infrared sauna blankets. Misinformation about the novel coronavirus and its treatment has been rampant online since the earliest days of the pandemic. Pseudoscientific “remedies” like a six-day cleansing of the bone broth and the “detoxifying superpowder” promoted by Goop harm people in the long run rather than help them. If nothing else, they give false hope that could prevent people from seeking actual medical advice. If you experience long-lasting symptoms with COVID-19, be sure to contact your doctor and rely on your friends and loved ones for social support.
