In light of her recent health scare, Demi Moore has sought the help of friend and doctor Deepak Chopra for a physical and mental recovery.

Reports indicate that the actress is receiving treatment for "exhaustion" at an unknown location and seeks aid for both her body and her mind.

Indian medical doctor and author Chopra began his career as an endocrinologist and now focuses on alternative medicine.

Moore and Chopra's friendship goes back 15 years, according to People magazine. The actress spent time with the doctor in his native country in 1996 while serving at his healing center. Also, Moore appeared on his album of songs which were inspired by Rumi, a poet.

Moore has referred to Chopra's book, "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success," as "my Bible."

The 49-year-old actress has been spotted publicly looking especially gaunt in recent months as she has been forced to publicly cope with rumors of Ashton Kutcher's infidelity as well as her divorce from the actor.

Last month, she suffered convulsions after allegedly inhaling nitrous oxide and an "incense"-like substance before emergency medical personnel arrived.

Many reports indicate that the Moore is receiving treatment for anorexia as well as problems from substance abuse.

Neither the actress or Chopra have confirmed working together on Moore's health, but the doctor posted on his Twitter account advice for finding happiness.

"Bliss is natural to life, but once we cover it over, we must search for it in others. Bliss is not a feeling but a state of being," wrote Chopra, who is very active on the social media site.

One of Chopra's main messages is that by ridding oneself of negative emotions and developing intuition by listening to signals from the body, health can be improved, reported Business Week magazine.

He has been referred to as "one of the pre-eminent leaders of the mind-body-spirit movement" by Business Wire and received the Life of Maverick Award ,as well as many other honors for his work.

Chopra was also a friend of Michael Jackson for over 20 years, and received widespread attention in 2009 when he reasoned that the singer's death was due to the "cult of drug-pushing doctors, with their co-dependent relationships with addicted celebrities."

The writer and physician added that he hoped Jackson's death would lead to a change in the prescription drugs are used.
