Gwyneth Paltrow explains why her kids’ holistic dentist encouraged her to deal with the ’emotional trauma’ of divorce
Dr. Sherry Sami’s conversation with Gwyneth Paltrow on the Goop Podcast was recently featured in an MSN article. Continue below for a small snippet or to listen to the podcast episode!
“While her first marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was crumbling, Gwyneth Paltrow explored all kinds of ways to address the pain before they announced their “conscious uncoupling” in 2014.
She was inspired, in part, to work hard to resolve her own issues because she’d learned from her children’s holistic dentist-orthodontist that she could be inflicting that pain on her son and daughter if she didn’t, Gwyneth has revealed in a new Goop podcast.
On the June 2 episode, the Goop founder had a conversation with Dr. Sherry Sami, DDS, about ways to help children heal from pain. The most important way adults can do that, both agreed, is to focus on their own healing.
As first reported by MailOnline, the Oscar winner explained on the podcast titled “Gwyneth Paltrow x Sherry Sami: The Presence Prescription,” that she remembered “the first time I came to see you and I brought Apple and [Moses], gosh, it was a long time ago. And I remember going to talk to you in your office… and sitting down with you and then you’re asking me all these questions about my emotional trauma and my marriage, which was going through a really hard time — and we all know how that ended.”
Gwyneth explained that as they were talking, “I thought, ‘Why is this amazing, lovely dentist-orthodontist asking me about my childhood trauma and what’s going on in my marriage?””
