It’s becoming more difficult to find fact based information when it particularly pertains to your body. So much information, but is it opinion or fact? Who is the source and do they have an angle? In the world of influencers and celebrities, why are they trusted? I am in the fact camp. Wanting information from credible sources with a background in the field. Our bodies are complicated enough!
I have ordered and received Dr. Jennifer Gunter’s book, The Vagina Bible. It’s a damn good one. If you have a daughter, this book could be a good resource for you.
If you haven’t heard of Dr. Jennifer Gunter then let me share her with you. Dr. Gunter is a OB/GYN and a pain medicine physician. She specializes in women’s health with years of schooling and experience. Most recently, she has come into the headlines for her science based, no nonsense information about women’s health especially around some suggestions that have been made on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop website. Jen attacks the myths and claims with facts. Just for the record, I have nothing against GP. She has built her brand and has a very loyal following. She sells the “perfect life” but I don’t believe she truly connects with the average woman. You need a big bank account to play in her world. But this is just my opinion. She is her own person and with all do respect, we all need to be our own person. I pretty much only stalk Goop for recipes. There are some good ones!
For your reading pleasure, here are two bits written by Dr. Jennifer Gunter. Just google her name and you will see plenty of articles from this rock star (ignore the f bomb that she drops in one of the articles). Draw your own conclusion. Put Away The Jade Egg, An Open Letter
