We learn something new every day!
We revealed yesterday that Katie Holmes has been wearing gloves and long sleeve shirts to cover her freakily discolored hands.
We thought she was sporting purple hands for her appearance on ABC's Eli Stone.
But, a few insiders in the know informed us that Katie might have taken part in a Scientology purification ritual that caused her hands to go purple.
According to reports, the purification ritual is called the Purification Rundown or Purif.
Peeps going through the process take 'vitamin bombs' to get 'toxins' out of their bodies.
A source says that in almost every single case, Scientology founder Hubbard recommends dosages in his teachings that are well above the safe limits, in some cases as much as 142 times more than the toxic level. The side effects of such huge overdoses range from liver damage, hair loss, brain swelling and nausea up to fatal heart and respiratory failure.
The cleanse also prescribes huge doses of something called niacin. A report says large doses of niacin can cause liver damage, peptic ulcers, and skin rashes. Even normal doses can be associated with skin flushing.
Someone help her!!!
