If you are a frequent flyer for business and/or pleasure, then surely you have had the unpleasant experience of jet lag. Over the years, there have been many odd cures for jet lag — everything from LED light therapy to ostrich feathers, have been suggested to battle the malaise that occurs when jetting across time zones.
But, this one really takes the cake, or should I say “muffin.” Celebrity Gwyneth Paltrow, whose controversial “Goop” therapy – which involves steaming of the vagina – is a sure fire cure for jet lag!
The technical term for the procedure which is all the rage in spas in Los Angeles (where else?) is the “Mugworth V-Steam.” According to Paltrow, “You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infra-red and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al.” She went on to say that “It is an energetic release — not just a steam douche — that balances female hormone levels…”
It is that energy release that has woman travelers swearing by the V-steam as jet lag cure. They say it works wonders for hangovers as well.
And guys, you do not have to be left out just because of your lack of lady parts. According to Paltrow, there’s also a version of the steam for men, which they claim “soothes hemorrhoids and assists in anal cleansing.”
Sounds to me like that could be useful not only for jet lag and hangovers – but for cases of alien abduction!
