Tired of getting no results from medications that claim to sooth a fever or cough, reduce the pain of a headache or backache, or help combat respiratory problems? Maybe some of the following alternative medicinal methods – albeit all a little on the wild side – may make a difference.
1. Sloppy solution for pesky pimples and that raking rheumatoid arthritis
Similar to the famous “Fountain of Youth” in sunny Florida – just take away most of the crystal clear water, promise of immortality and add a bit of mud – is the “Lagoon of Miracles” in Chilca, Peru. Natives swear to its ability to cure anything and everything from acne to rheumatism. In order to get the beneficial effects of the lagoon’s seemingly magical waters, one must immerse him or herself in thick, greenish-black mud. Yummy.
2. Dry sand and dry heat to fight sexual dry spells and joint pain
