Dr Oz: Gwyneth Paltrow Healing Diet Cures Vitamin B Deficiency
Gwyneth Paltrow told Dr. Oz she thought she was having stroke at one point in her life. She said she was fine one moment but the next moment she felt so strange she couldn’t even put sentences together. She then had a blinding pain on one side of her head and the right side of her body began to go numb. While those symptoms sound like a stroke, it turned out she was actually suffering from a severe migraine headache.
After numerous medical tests, Paltrow learned she was anemic with a vitamin B deficiency along with other issues her doctor told her she could treat by changing her diet. Although she considered herself healthy, Paltrow decided to go on a “healing” diet that required her to get rid of the foods she loves, like bread, cheese, coffee and wine.
After weeks of being on the diet, Paltrow said her blood work came back normal and she was feeling better than ever.
