Lets take a poll! 😉 Do you think Fish Therapy is blooming Wellness or WTFness?
(Being an asthmatic, I was especially intrigued by this one.)
Here’s the scoop:
In the city of Hyderabad lives the Goud family, self-proclaimed alternativemedicine practitioners. Thousands of people come to see them for “Fish medicine.” Fish medicine involves a fish, which is first coated by a homemade herbal solution that is then swallowed live by the patient. Fish therapy is claimed to heal respiratory ailments and asthma. The Goud family claims they received the secret “live-fish-herbal therapy” from a Hindu saint 170 years ago.( I’m assuming one of their ancestors received the secret recipe.) Fish therapy is ONLY administered on a day decided by an astrologist, who is also a family friend. Recently, 70,000 people were waiting in line for the Gouds’ magical cure.
What do you think? Does fish therapy sound fishy to you or, given everything you know about western and alternative medicine, would you be willing to give it a try?
