“I didn’t think about [wellness] a lot until my father was diagnosed with cancer. I started realizing there had to be a connection through what we were eating and what we were being exposed to,” Gwyneth said about her health journey. “And how that was being expressed through disease. And that’s when I started researching whatever I could. Talking to people. Understanding the links between environmental toxins, cancer…what led to the creation of disease in our culture.

“Why do we have so much obesity, depression, type two diabetes,” she pondered. “We all have so much agency, we have autonomy over our bodies. What we put into our bodies…when we have a certain degree of mastery of ourselves, we can really start to change our lives and feel really good.”

While filming Shakespeare in Love in England, Gwyneth first cut foods out of her diet in a macrobiotic diet.

“What I gave up was dairy, gluten, sugar…a lot of processed foods. Sugar,” Gwyneth said of starting her health journey while filming, and even said she mostly gave up coffee.

However, she went off of the diet when she was pregnant with her daughter Apple, saying, “All I wanted was grilled cheese sandwiches and yogurt.”

On the podcast, she was asked to name the weirdest wellness trend she’s ever done, to which she responded, “I have used ozone therapy, rectally. Can I say that? It’s pretty weird. It’s pretty weird, yeah. But it’s been very helpful.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Ozone therapy uses medical-grade ozone created using an ozone generator device. The intent of ozone therapy is to increase the amount of oxygen in your body. A higher oxygen level can boost your immune system while promoting healing. It does that through cell regeneration — the process of replacing or repairing damaged cells.”

Gwyneth once revealed how she views eating and eliminating foods.
