Last week Jennifer Aniston stepped out with large round marks on her back. It’s the result of a new holistic treatment that celebrities are all about recently. It’s called cupping and the gossip world is claiming that Jen specifically sought out the treatment to increase fertility.
Well, that’s not entirely true.
Yes, Jen had “cupping” done, but she probably did it for the same reasons that Gwyneth Paltrow does it, which is to “eliminate toxins” or whatever.
We spoke to Dr. Carl Herbert of Pacific Fertility Center in San Francisco who says there is nothing about cupping that would increase fertility.
Dr. Herbert says, cupping is “not likely” to help fertility, “Cupping, like acupuncture, is often referred to as ‘complementary’ treatment for infertility. There are, however, no quality published studies on the benefit of ‘cupping’ for infertility treatment.”
The rumor from yesterday was that Jen was “inspired” by Halle Berry’s recent pregnancy announcement and realized it wasn’t too late for her to have a kid either.
Also, cupping is supposedly great for removing toxins, but Herbert says there isn’t any medical proof that it even does that.
So, sorry JenAn fans. We’re not on baby watch yet. Wedding watch first. One thing at a time, please.
