Demi Moore is 47, but certainly does not look like it. So what are her secrets? Well one of them is Austrian. She admitted to talk show host David Letterman a while back that:
“I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren’t just swamp leeches though – we are talking about highly trained medical leeches. I feel like I’ve always been someone looking for the cutting edge of things that optimize your health and healing.
They have a little enzyme that when they are biting down in you it gets released in your blood and generally you bleed for quite a bit – and your health is optimized.”
Leech therapy which has a long history in ancient Egyptian, doctors there once considered them a cure-all is today sometimes used in plastic and reconstructive surgery to assist reattachment of severed body parts. It is as follows: First, shave your body and then immerse yourself in turpentine. And when the stinging stops, allow leeches to feast on your blood.
