Wonders shall never end. The extent people will go to seek solutions to medical problems outside of Western medicine is mind boggling.
In Indian, thousands of people swallow live fish in an attempt to treat asthma.
The fish measuring up to 5cm is stuffed in a yellow herbal paste, forced down the mouth of the ‘patient’ and swallowed whole. The rancid fish smell requires noses to be pinched to ensure the mixture is not spat out.
The treatment is administered by the Bathini Gould family who claim to use a secret formula of herbs that was originally passed down by a Hindu sage in 1845.
The procedure takes place once a year over a two-day period, the specific dates of which are determined by astrology.
