Demi Moore Admits to Leech Therapy

On a recent appearance on David Letterman's Late Show, Demi Moore admitted to undergoing a turpentine bath and leech therapy in order to "thin" and "detoxify" her blood. It occurred at some woman's house in Austria. The leech was placed onto her belly button, where it latched and sucked blood until it was fully engorged and fell off.

Leeches??!! Yuck.

I find it completely amazing that celebrities are comfortable admitting to ridiculous 'treatments' like this, yet still can't admit they've had plastic surgery. It's more appropriate for a Hollywood star to admit they've had high pressure water shot up their rectum (the celebrity colonic) than a facelift. With the slow trickle of stars coming forth and admitting their plastic surgery, maybe things will eventually change.

It's ridiculous, and I think that these celebrities are doing the general public a disservice by encouraging unusual treatments rather than procedures performed by board-certified surgeons.

I think this was later shown to be a joke, along the lines of Ashton Kutcher's new show: "Pop Fiction."

Medical leeches are sterile and effective for removing excess blood from patients who have issues where blood has pooled abnormally under their skin because of injury or whatever. These leeches aren't the same as the ones pulled out of swamps which really would be 'yuck!'

Leeches scare me (a lot) less than plastic surgery.
