Myth: "I used leeches to detox." Demi Moore told David Letterman in 2008: "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." She went on to say how fantastic she felt, explaining that the leeches had "cleaned her blood." But if you're looking for a new, effective way to cleanse, this probably isn't it. "It's an old Asian remedy, and it's not really detoxing," says Lipman. "It may work on a small part of the detox system, but you need to support the liver and the gut for a true detox." Lipman advocates the Be Well Cleanse, a combination of supplements and probiotic shakes that also incorporates two small meals a day, and ditching the water parasites.
