Gwyneth Paltrow took her contentious health and charm business to New York City last weekend and, yeah, it’s as spooky as it sounds.
The 45 -year-old actress’s lifestyle brand Goop hosted its one-day event offering all sorts of health managements and spiritual healing.
Tickets appointed after chic herbs and spices, turmeric and ginger, selling off $ 650 to $2,000 a pop. Around 600 “health” maniacs joined in for the 10 hours of reflection, spa cares, tarot poster and clairvoyant sees, and anti-aging LED face mask treatments.
Panels of medical doctors discussed a variety of topics, ranging from stress and depression to relationship health. Others featured controversial experts with radical meanings, like analyst Dr. Kelly Brogan who, in 2014, posted a now-deleted blog stating HIV doesn’t lead to AIDS despite decades of studies stating exactly the opposite.
Other orators included psychic medium Laura Lynn Jackson who apparently said “death doesn’t exist” and nutritionist Deanna Minich, who told audiences to eat yellow food to “balance your fire” and green food to alleviate grief.

There was, of course, lots of shopping too. But selling things, whether suggestions or produces, is built into the Goop business model. The subscription-based vitamin regime addresses “your” difficulties- like why are you so tired all the time or why your genes aren’t like they were in high school- through “health-defining vitamin and supplement regimens” that address the needs of modern women for merely $90 a month.
Goop says it deals with the four imagination and figure the matters that plague modern girls the most.
“We believe that the little things count, that good meat constitutes the foundation of adore and wellness, that the thought/ form/ spirit is inextricably linked and “weve had” more restraint over how we convey our health than we currently understand, ” says the website.
It’s not the first time Paltrow, or “GP” as her Goopies like to call her, has drawn attention for her questionable elegance numbers. The actress was voluntarily stung by bees during an apitherapy treatment for scarring and inflammation. She says it’s an ancient formation of care that has been around for thousands of years but recently fell out of fashion.
Supporters of In Goop Health, which include actresses Drew Barrymore, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Chelsea Handler, say it’s about female empowerment.
But some attendees weren’t buying what Goop was selling citing poor, and even dangerous, medical advice, reports Page Six.
“We like to shine light on things, ” said Paltrow at the episode. “We love science and data, and we make a lot of our decisions using data, but we also desire the unexplained and unexplored.”
