Gwyneth Paltrow's weirdest health tips

From octopus to vagina steaming, these are all the strangest health tips that Gwyneth swears by.

Gwyneth Paltrow has never been one for convention.
First, she blew our collective minds with the concept of 'conscious uncoupling' as she split from her husband of a decade, Chris Martin.
Then she suggested we all go on a week long goat milk cleanse.
Suffice to say, Gwyneth has got some interesting ideas when it comes to health and wellbeing.
And her most recent addition? She won't eat octopus because it's too "smart" to be food.
“They have more neurons in their brains than we do. I had to stop eating them because I was so freaked out by it,” the star admitted.
"They can escape from sea world and s--- by unscrewing drains and going out to sea. #tangent."
But aside from indulging in our tentacled friends, here are the other things Gwyneth has suggested we get on board with over the years.
Vagina steaming
"You sit on what is essentially a mini throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release – not just a steam douche - that balances female hormone levels," she wrote on her website.
Crystals for vaginal weight-lifting
Alternative-health devotee Gwynnie featured the benefits of jade eggs for your sexual and reproductive systems on her website goop.
She also included a link to the shop on her site to purchase them…
Bee stings on the face
Much braver than us, Gwyn is a fan of an ancient anti-inflammatory method called apitherapy: the practice of bees literally stinging your face.
“Generally, I’m open to anything,” she says. “I’ve been stung by bees. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring.”
“It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful.”
Sex dust for breakfast
Sex dust is apparently “a lusty edible formula alchemized to ignite and excite your sexy energy in and out of the bedroom,” according to Moon Juice, the supplement brand that sells it.
And this is what Gwynnie adds to her morning smoothie every morning – whether she’s cleansing on goat’s milk or not.
Of her bizarre smoothie concoction, she says to add: “1 teaspoon moon dust of choice: Action Dust to soothe overworked muscles, Beauty Dust for a glowy complexion and healthy hair, Brain Dust to combat mental fogginess, Goodnight Dust when sleep has been evasive, Sex Dust, for, you know, and Spirit Dust to get that extrasensory perception going.”
