A Virtual Conversation with Dr. Will Cole & Gwyneth Paltrow

An Evening with Dr. Will Cole & Gwyneth Paltrow
celebrating the release of Gut Feelings

Thursday, April 13, 2023
 7:00 PM ET via Vimeo



Join us as Dr. Will Cole sits down with Gwyneth Paltrow to chat about and celebrate the release of his latest book, Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat & How You Feel. They’ll also be answering your questions about health and wellness in real time during the conversation.

In our diet-crazed culture obsessed with physical transformation, the emotional component of eating often gets overlooked.

After over a decade as a functional medicine expert, Dr. Will Cole discerned that shame can cause gut inflammation and sabotage wellness through what he’s named “Shameflammation.” When you send signals to your brain that you are overwhelmed, overworked, or overtired, your body reacts. Shameflammation can be the cause of chronic health conditions such as autoimmune disorders, depression, IBS, and more.

Throughout Gut Feelings, Dr. Cole illuminates how the relationship between your head and your gut microbiome can be disrupted and even severely damaged—and what you can do to repair it. 

**This is a ticketed event, and advance registration through Eventbrite is required. Tickets include access to the conversation and a copy of Gut Feelings, which will be shipped to attendees starting March 21st. You will receive an email from Eventbrite with a link to tune in to the live event on Vimeo a couple of days prior to the event date.



Dr. Will Cole is a leading functional medicine expert who specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing a functional medicine approach for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, and more. He is the host of The Art of Being Well podcast and author of Ketotarian, The Inflammation Spectrum, and New York Times bestseller Intuitive Fasting.


Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is also a bestselling cookbook author, singer, and entrepreneur. In 2008, Paltrow founded goop from her kitchen table. goop has grown into a lifestyle brand devoted to helping women make their own choices count in the various facets of their lives—from style, travel, work, food, and beauty to physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. goop now has a tightly edited digital shop, a book imprint, permanent and pop-up retail experiences, a live event series, and its own product lines, including skincare, fragrances, apparel, bath and body, and supplements.


It's easy to suffer from frustration and confusion when it comes to nutrition and health. With so much focus on what, when, and how to eat, the emotional component of eating tends to get left behind. Dr. Will Cole sheds light on the relationship between your physical and emotional health, providing a framework for you to better understand the gut-brain connection and influence that connection for the better. He illustrates how stress and shame can cause gut inflammation and sabotage your health in a process called Shameflammation. On the other end, problems with the gut can often present themselves in the form of mood swings, anxiety, and food cravings. True health isn’t just about what you eat, but how you feel.

Shameflammation can be the reason for chronic health conditions such as autoimmune disorders, leaky gut, IBS, and other GI disorders. Thankfully, it’s possible to heal the connection between the physical and mental with good food and somatic practices that support a healthy gut and brain. Dr. Cole offers holistic tools to help you reevaluate your relationship with food and your body, getting you back in touch with your gut feelings. His 21-Day Gut Feeling plan helps you bridge the gap between your emotions and your health, including:

• More than fifty healing recipes, such as Breakfast Fried Rice, Scallop Noodle Bowls, and Honey Grapefruit Sorbet
• Dietary prescriptions founded upon flexibility and awareness
• Mindfulness techniques to strengthen your intuition and discover your priorities

GUT FEELINGS approaches nutrition and wellness from a place of self-love and will help you eliminate stubborn health conditions, on your own terms.
