Demi Moore turns to a somewhat unlikely form of natural remedy to keep her body healthy – leeches.

Paltrow is pretty well accustomed to natural medicines and alternative healing practices – some less conventional than others.

This is said to increase blood flow and open pores, allowing toxins to leave the body.
