    While browsing images on "Totally Cool Pix" I found a strange topic titled "Crazy Cures" which discusses the strangest cures in the world , I will let you see some of these methods

    I am not sure about effectiveness of these methods but i am sure it looks crazy for people who didn't hear about it.

    10. Garra rufa obtusas, also known as doctor fish, swim around the face of a man as he relaxes in a hot spa pool in Kangal, 105 kilometers (65 miles) south of the central Anatolian city of Sivas August 9, 2009. The treatment is believed to heal Psoriasis, a chronic skin disease which affects the joints and skins. Garra rufa obtusa, also known as doctor fish which live in mineral-rich hot spa pools, is used in the treatment as they nibble away the diseased skin. The mineral-rich water is then believed to aid in the healing process of the lesions. People suffering from psoriasis travel to Kangal to stay at the spa for 21 days and visit the fish pools twice daily for four-hour treatment sessions. Picture taken August 9, 2009.

    Hijama is a way to pull the bad blood, from blood vessels by simple diffusion
    And it's an effective treatment.

    In our country we use vacuum cups ("bubbles", mostly those without fire, only with a syringe ) when we have cold, flu or lungs/airway inflammation. Does it work? I don't know, but a many people feel better after bublles. I hate it ;)

    CUPPING THERAPY i.e. HIJAMA is a part of UNANI MEDICINE.World Health Organization already recognized the the UNANI MEDICINE as a separate system of medicine.so if you are saying that cupping therapy is a crazy cure then you really did not aware about UNANI SYSTEM OF MEDICINE and its REGIMENTAL THERAPIES.First of all try to improve your knowledge regarding Unani SYSTEM of MEDICINE

    My Alergy got cured from Hijama it is really an effective treatment. Even the person who cured me he had cured Diabetes. I was really shocked seeing the curity of this technique, while the world is not accepting it just becoz its an Islamic treatment.
