Gwyneth Paltrow’s methods of dealing with Kovid-19 have been severely criticized by the Medical Director of the National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom. The actress has propagated on the internet that the symptoms of the disease can be treated with intermittent fasting and frequent visits to the sauna.
Last week, on its controversial website Goop, Gwyneth said she contracted coronavirus early last year and has been suffering from “fatigue and brain fog” ever since. To treat her symptoms, she said she is known as “one of the smartest experts” functional physician Will Cole, who recommended her “intuitive diet”.
Gwyneth also revealed that her diet is now based on vegetables with “many coconut amino acids”. He also cut sugar and alcohol and made frequent visits to an infrared sauna.
The scientifically unproven advice of the Hollywood star has caused severe rebuke from Professor Stephen Powys, the NHS’s medical director. Who told the BBC that influential celebrities like Paltrow should stop spreading medical misinformation.
He said: “In the last few days, I saw Gwyneth Paltrow, which unfortunately, suffered the effects of the Kovid-19. We wish him all the best, but some of the solutions he is promoting are not actually recommended by the NHS. “
“Like viruses, disintegration crosses boundaries, mutates and evolves. So I think YouTube and other social media platforms have real responsibilities and opportunities here. We need to take the subject seriously and apply science It is the duty and responsibility of all affected to use social media.
This is not the first time Gwyneth has received criticism from the NHS. Last year, the unit’s chief executive in the UK, Simon Stevens, said Netflix’s Goop series posed a “considerable health risk” to viewers. In the program, a selection of actresses and doctors explore alternative methods of well-being, such as energy ghosts and psychedelic treatments, described by Simon as “questionable procedures”.
