In the debut issue of Goop, Paltrow talks about her first cleanse, her approach to health after her father’s terminal cancer and why she tried bee-venom therapy. The publication hits newsstands on Sept. 19.
“I remember standing in a hippie health-food store in Greenwich Village and I saw a little paperback book describing a ‘master cleanse,’ and I was like, What’s that? I remember the next day [after I finished the cleanse] I was like, Oh, wow, I just did this cleanse, and I feel so much better,” she writes in her first editor’s letter. “I can have a beer and a cigarette now, right?”
The star also shares that her lifestyle changed after her father was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
