Gwyneth Paltrow has been talking about her experience with long COVID to her Goop readers. My goodness, another sales opportunity in the making (see: From Hawking $15,000 Gold Vibrators to $8,600 Hiking Necklaces, Gwyneth Paltrow May Never Return To Acting). I like her better when she’s talking dirty (see: LOL – Gwyneth Paltrow admits to having a “dirty sense of humor”) than being misperceived as some kind of medical professional.
Gwyneth Paltrow certainly has some great holistic resources to share with her readers and consumers about COVID-19 but, at the end of the day, she 1) does run a business and 2) is not a medical professional. The CDC has yet to completely understand the significance of the effects of how COVID-19 affects our bodies long-term, but physicians do absolutely recommend a healthy diet, exercise and therapy during this time along with safety precautions such as wearing masks.After Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Covid Advice, Experts Share A Warning – CINEMABLEND
Then again, maybe she’s not doing anything wrong and people are just misinterpreting her sales pitches as medical advice.
The title of this post is pretty clear. Don’t take medical advice from social influencers that are actors. There are people who have studied in the medical field, have actual medical experience. I don’t think Gwyneth Paltrow fits this category. I don’t even know if she’s ever had a role playing a doctor on a movie or TV show? (anyone, has she?).
Whatever the case, some of this should be common sense. It shouldn’t need people to go, wow, Gwyneth Paltrow says I should fast to help recover from long COVID, I better start doing this!
Then again, maybe this is only a very small percentage of people doing this. We don’t expense any medical advice here. We don’t know anything about how to survive long COVID. We both feel extremely blessed that we haven’t gotten COVID, despite working this whole time in public.
