Katie Holmes’ purple hands have recently caused quite a stir. Photos show Katie Holmes hiding her hands, as well as wearing long sleeves and gloves. It seems the mystery has been revealed!
Katie Holmes has been wearing gloves and long sleeve shirts to cover up her strangely discolored hands. Photos of Katie on the set of ABC’s Eli Stone, show her attempting to hide her hands with arms folded.
But, interestingly enough, Perez Hilton reports Katie most likely has taken part in a Scientology purification ritual that caused the discoloration on her hands recently.
The Scientology ritual is called the Purification Rundown or Purif. People going through this ritual take what they refer to as “vitamin bombs” that supposedly rids their bodies of toxins.
Sources report that 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.
This body cleanse also prescribes huge doses of niacin, which can cause liver damage, peptic ulcers, and skin rashes.
Tom Cruise, actor and devout Scientologist, has seemingly become quite an influence on wife, Katie Holmes.
Last year, rumors circulated that Katie was unhappy and leaving the marriage because of Tom’s Scientology beliefs. Obviously Katie has now been “brainwashed” into this cult? To each his own though!
