Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she’s a COVID-19 long-haul with a ‘cure’ yet to be done
This would place the Oscar-winning “Shakespeare In Love” actor among the 10% of coronavirus patients who are long-haul, according to to researchers.
In a recent article titled “Heal my body for longer term detox”On his GOOP lifestyle website, Paltrow casually dropped the revelation after an intro on cleansing his diet.
“A little background: I had COVID-19 early on, and it left me with long tail fatigue and brain fog,” she wrote. “In January, I had tests done which showed very high levels of inflammation in my body.”
Paltrow said she saw a functional medicine practitioner, who told her “the road to recovery is going to be longer than usual” and put her on a keto and herbal diet. The “Iron Man” star spent much of the remainder of his article selling merchandise for sale on his GOOP site.
Long-haul travelers test negative for the disease, but its impact persists. “This condition can affect anyone, old and young, otherwise healthy people and those struggling with other conditions,” according to UC-Davis Health. “This has been observed in those who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 and patients with very mild symptoms. “
