Model Bathes in Pig's Blood in an Attempt to Stay Youthful

April 16, 2015 2 min read

Chanel, a 19 year old model from California, has decided to bathe in pig's blood. She justifies the practice by saying that "thousands of years ago people did this and it worked." pig3 Chanel, who is a vegetarian, said, "My greatest fear is getting old and developing wrinkles and extra loose skin, so to prevent that from happening I must do whatever it takes." Despite still being very young, Chanel insists that she is showing signs of aging that she believes will soon end her career. Her family, skeptical of the pig's blood baths, wants proof but Chanel has been unable to offer anything. She also opts for other beauty fixes like a daily shot of garlic powder, balsamic vinaigrette, sage, and olive oil. She claims this helps 'preserve your body.' She has a skin care regimen that involves washing her face 8-10 times a day. Chanel also claims to have eaten placenta, gone on fasts and put her body through a number of detoxes. After picking up the blood from the butcher shop, Chanel stands in the tub in only her underwear and begins to pour it over her body. All of this, by the way, being filmed for MTV's True Life.  pig2 Although she believes the process to have worked, she doesn't feel the need to do it again. Apparently the feedback she received from filming the show was more than enough to buoy her spirits. There are no proven benefits to this practice but the concept may have pretty old origins. Elisabeth Bathory, a Hungarian Countess, is alleged to have murdered hundreds of young virgin women around the turn of the 16th century, bathing in their blood to stay youthful. If you fast forward to 2013, you've got Kim Kardashian getting a 'vampire facial' which involves drawing a person's own blood, separating the platelets and then injecting it back into the patient's face. Did anyone have visions of Sissy Spacek while reading this because I sure had them while writing it. I know when I was 19, the last thing I worried about was looking old. Was this a real attempt to stave off aging or was it an attempt to get on television and create a name for oneself? The latter part worked at least, she got on TV and we are talking about her. What are your thoughts on aging? What would you do (if anything) to fight it? How far is too far?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
