5 Amazing Things You Won’t Believe Are Medicine
Many people are skeptical of alternative medicine, myself included, but there are people all over the world who believe there is a cure for the most incurable diseases. Even though I practice modern medicine, I am on a mission to uncover the mysticism behind unconventional healers.
I have traveled the world to the actual places where these treatments are being done, I have spoken with experts, I have seen patients being treated and I have gone into the wild to find the source of these “medicines.” You won’t believe what I have found…

The powder is then bottled and can be bought at the local pharmacy without a prescription.
3. Leech therapy
Leeches have been used since the Middle Ages for medical purposes such as blood purification and even hemorrhoids. Today they are most commonly used by plastic surgeons to assist patients in their recovery from reconstructive surgery when there is a back-up of blood in the tissue.
