Goop Lab Special
Friday, 24 January
As the Goop Lab TV series lands in Netflix accounts, Greg Foot and guests look at the scientific evidence for the therapies tried out by Goop staff, including Gwyneth Paltrow herself.
Dr James Rucker, lead on the psilocybin trials at King's College, London, talks about psychedelic therapy, and Dr Sarah Davey, Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Science, Oxford Brookes University, discusses the evidence for cold water therapy. To check out if there's any science behind vampire facials and other skin treatments Greg turns to Dr Nisith Sheth, dermatologist at St John’s Institute of Dermatology, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals. Professor Edzard Ernst, Emeritus Professor of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter, is our reviewer of the evidence for the effects of Reiki and other forms of energy healing. And gynaecologist and pain specialist, Dr Jen Gunter, author of The Vagina Bible, is our expert on what the Goop Lab says about how women can have better sex.
