Blood Sucker Therapy, seriously?
Posted by kid , Reader : 3487 , 20:45:59  

I have to admit, I have problem with beauty surgery and plastic surgery. JUst basicly, I don't like being cut and got something taken out or put into my body unnecessarily. Hollywood starts like Dolly Parton, Pamela Anderson, and many of them who went through ridiculously extreme makeover really scare me.

However, I can understand them, because they have money so they can do whatever they want. Now there is this new beauty procedure that has been practiced in the older days have come to live again when Demi Moore said her latest beauty trick is: detox therapy with blood-sucking leeches.

The other night, I watched David Letterman Show and Demi Moore was his guest, she said the following:

I feel like Ive always been someone looking for the cutting edge of things that optimize your health and healing I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy These arent just swamp leeches though - we are talking about highly trained medical leeches. These are not some low level scavengers - were talking high level blood suckers 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 It detoxifies your blood - Im feeling very detoxified right now. I did it in some womans house laying on her bed. We did a little sampler first, which is in the belly button It crawls in and you feel it bite down on you and you want to go, You bastard. Then you relax and work on your Lemaze breathing just to kind of relax You watch it swell up on your blood, watching it get fatter and fatter - then when its super drunk on your blood it just kind of rolls over like it is stumbling out of the bar.

Ewwww, justhearing about it, it really does makemy skin crawl....ewww ewww

Obey, King Henry I of England died of a surfeit of lampreys, lampreys are larger relatives of leeches and were at one time regarded as a delicacy
Leeches are used in medicine to remove pooled blood from body tissues.

Ian, you are right. Leeches must be good for something. I wonder what they taste like. Perhaps fried like chips/crisps

Obey, it is maggots not leeches that work well for removing gangrene or dead flesh. In fact a maggot will not eat healthy flesh.

Leeches work well for removing gangrene or dead flesh

The detox thing sounds like complete rubbish, except perhaps the placebo effect.

Still, worth a shot rather than eating heathy and exercising (which I guess Demi does)

Kid, it was supposed to draw out bad blood, in fact it just drew out blood.
Please read the link I gave in my comment 5, unfortunately the blog colour scheme you have chosen makes it very difficult to see.

Ian, I suppose you have to ask Demi herself, coz that's exactly what she said in the talk with Letterman, I would have love to study more and even better if I can get to experience it myself, so I can give you more detail of how. My problem is I don't like creepy crawly things... leeches ewwwwww

Tawan, apparently this procedure was used in the ancient medical procedure to draw out bad blood in patients, I am only heard from people who I spoke to about this recently though. Not an expert.

PJ, an "ex" always being called names, it's too bad, don't you think?
I bet she calls your brother some awful names too...lol

My brother likes to describe his ex-wife as a blood sucker. Can't see any noticeable improvement in his health though. Quite the opposite.

Tawan, in surgery leeches are used for dealing with blood clots and pooled blood such as varicose veins. They definitely have no detox properties.

Interesting if supported by science.

Why don't just simply do the blood donation instead? it works also you give away you blood and you body will re-build the new blood plus you can save people's life! May be leech suck out part of the fat or cellulite also? weird way of thinking!

Kid, I don't want to sound cynical but I fail to see how a leech can detoxify the blood. blood detox is similar to dialysis, it involves drawing off blood, cleaning it and returning it to the body. Sure the leech draws it off, but it does not return it.
On the other hand blowfly maggots are increasingly being used to clean necrotic wounds.
