Celebrity health and beauty fads come and go, and generally, we try our best to steer clear of any holy grail these A-listers irk.
But, one health trend that has caught our attention is the recent downright wacky treatment Katy Perry has put her recent pregnancy down to.
Last week, 35-year-old Katy Perry announced that she’s expecting her first child with her Fiance Orlando Bloom. Speaking on Smallzy Small’s Nova podcast, Katy revealed how she believes she successfully became pregnant, and we’re not sure we’ll be giving it a try in all honesty.
Explaining it in quite frankly the most horrific way possible, Katy said:
“It’s basically Ayurvedic eating and cleansing, you do lots of enemas. You definitely feel more energy, it basically like gets all the c**p out of you, every pun intended.”
While Katy gave it a go, and shortly after became with-child, she did admit that she probably won’t be doing it again, and we can’t say we don’t agree with her.
“We did it, we don’t need to do it again, but we have prepped this temple and the gift has arrived,”
Making babies aside, Katy does say that Panca Karma and other traditional health rituals, she believes is the fountain of eternal youth
“I’m kind of into those type of things, like health and healing places and self-betterment places,” she said.
“Especially as you get older and you have longer hangovers, you realize the cells in my body are dying.”
“There are ancient ways to heal yourself besides just taking a pill, which is something I always love to investigate.”
Hmm, the possibility of shorter hangovers? Maybe we can actually get on born with this Panca buzz.
So, what exactly is Panca Karma?
In simple terms, it’s a treatment that originates from India, which is a five-step cleansing programme which aims to remove all harmful toxins from the body to create optimum healing conditions, reduce health and boost your overall health.
And as Katy so wonderfully described, this ‘cleansing’ process is done through purgation, ie. oil enemas, taking laxatives, and bloodletting.
So not something we’d be lining up to do really, but to each their own we suppose!
