How did centuries of women get by without health tips from witless Hollywood boobs?
Gwyneth Paltrow wants you to steam clean your vagina — but health experts think her latest lifestyle advice full of hot air.
On her GOOP website, the Oscar winner personally endorsed the Mugwort V-Steam procedure at Tikkun Spa in Santa Monica — a bit of TMI that’s also being slammed by experts.
“If you want to feel relaxed get a good massage — if you want to relax your vagina, have an orgasm,” said Dr. Jen Gunter, a California ob-gyn who specializes in vulvovaginal disorders.
“Mugwort or wormwood … can’t possibly balance any reproductive hormones, regulate your menstrual cycle, treat depression, or cure infertility,” Gunter added in a blog post.
Who know, maybe the steamcleaning gets the goop out of her vag.
That part of the service wasn’t on Paltrow’s mind when she praised the procedure, which costs $50 for 30 minutes.
“You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al.,” Paltrow, 42, wrote on GOOP, touting the procedure’s cleansing, “energetic release,” and hormonal balance.
Guys can take part too, except the V-steam for them goes by a different name — the A-steam — and the solution travels up a different orifice.
