Detox without Deprivation

Functional nutritionist and author of The Rainbow Diet Deanna Minich, PhD, sees detox in part as a way of letting go of things that don't serve us. It is, she says, probably one of the oldest practices of humankind?to cleanse, to reevaluate what we need in our lives and what we don't. But she also believes that health should be a joy?pleasurable, fun?not deprivation. Which is why her approach to detox focuses on what we can add back in to really nourish the body, the mind, and the spirit. She thinks about well-being in terms of color and chakras, and she outlines her seven systems of health for us, which tie it all together. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Past Episodes

If you think the world is coming to an end, Steven Pinker says, think again. The experimental psychologist, Harvard psychology professor, and bestselling author of Enlightenment Now explains our tendency to look at the past through rose-colored glasses and view the present world much more pessimistically. He shows how our perception is distorted by headlines and gives us the real information that shows just how we're progressing. He makes the case that good news is just as worthy of reporting as bad news. And he makes us feel hopeful. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Longevity researcher Valter Longo is one of the world's leading experts on fasting. He's the director of the USC Longevity Institute and the author of The Longevity Diet. He's known in part for his exploration of intermittent fasting and the five-day Fasting Mimicking Diet that he developed in kit form. Elise Loehnen asks him to break down the phenomenon of intermittent fasting and share the forthcoming science that he's most excited about?the lifestyle interventions that could have massive impacts on how long we live and how healthy we are.

Wim Hof is known as the Ice Man. He's done some wild things. He can hold himself in ice water for nearly two hours with an elevated body temperature. He climbed to an insane height on Mt. Everest, in shorts and no shirt. Hof ran a half-marathon, barefoot, above the Arctic Circle. He also ran a full-marathon, in the desert, without drinking any water. He let a group of scientists shoot him full of endotoxins and didn't have an immune response. Why? Hof believes that our bodies are capable of doing extraordinary things. And he's really curious about just how much control we have over our instincts, our thoughts, our health, and our happiness. He talks to Elise Loehnen about his breathing method and how nearly anyone can apply it to their life, even if they are not running a marathon in a desert. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

GP's new cookbook, The Clean Plate, lands today, and she's sitting down with goop's food editors to talk about cleansing, cooking styles, and the foods she actually eats and enjoys. They cover memorable detoxes, easy clean swaps, beloved ice cream counters, and the most respectable form of French fry. After the chat, they go through the food questions everyone wants GP to answer in a lightning AMA session. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Jeff Hancock spends his days looking at the lies we tell one another online and in real life?and figuring out why, exactly, we do lie, and when it matters. He studies sociopaths, language patterns, deception, and trust. Hancock is the founding director of the Stanford Social Media Lab and a professor at Stanford University; he's also a Canadian and an optimist. Trust, he suggests, may be not declining but, perhaps, evolving. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Geneen Roth?author of This Messy Magnificent Life?has explored our relationship with food, our bodies, weight, the way we eat, and our inner emotional lives for decades. "Losing weight on any program in which you tell yourself that, left to your real impulses, you would devour the universe is like building a skyscraper on sand," says Roth. She believes that most of us sit with this sense that we're always in the waiting room of our life. We'd rather want than have, and we rush through life as if there's a big get at the end. Roth helps people stop, unpack their hang-ups around food, let go of shame and deprivation, and feel something much more pleasurable and long-lasting in their bodies. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Nicole Daedone is a longtime proponent and teacher of a practice called orgasmic meditation, which has been called the yoga of sex. She's also the author of Slow Sex, and she unpacks the complexities surrounding orgasm like no one we know. In today's conversation, she tells us why climax is just like sugar or a drop in the ocean and how to get to the real thing we're looking for. We talk about allowing feeling to take precedence over how things appear. And we see how she's redesigning sexuality and sexual practices that have previously been defined by men but really serve no one today. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

In partnership with our friends at The Outnet. We tend to obsess over how much and how well we focus, but psychiatrist Srini Pillay makes the case that the time we spend unfocused is more important. Pillay is a brain researcher, an assistant professor at Harvard, and the author of Tinker, Dabble, Doodle, Try: Unlock the Power of the Unfocused Mind. He helps people understand how to manage risk, harness creativity, and access the unconscious. He talks to us about brain function (the majority is outside of conscious awareness), strategic ways to unfocus (most of us daydream ineffectively), and the key to possibility thinking (which allows for self-esteem optimization). Pillay thinks that we should all become scientists in our relationships and lives: Intuition, he says, is a hypothesis that needs to explored rather than rejected.

Dr. Dominique Fradin-Read focuses on preventive and anti-aging medicine, helping women through the hormonal changes and symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. (She also works with men on hormonal issues.) In her practice, the aging process feels nearly imperceptible. She takes us through her approach, outlines what we can expect from hormonal shifts, and suggests different options for smoothing out the ride. And there's a lot you can do, says Fradin-Read: "We should not be the victims of our hormones anymore." (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

In partnership with our friends at Prime Video and their new series HomecomingPsychologist Alex Belser is a clinical research fellow at Yale and an adjunct instructor in the Department of Applied Psychology at NYU. While he has a practice, on the research side, he's been involved in some fascinating studies looking at the potential intersection of psychotherapy and psychedelics. He talks with Elise Loehnen about the many different ways psychedelics are being used to treat depression, anxiety, addiction. They explore how the mind works, why the brain can change, and what might transform the way we see the world. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)
