Demi Moore and Austrian leeches

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.
