The Witch Doctor Will See You Now 有請巫醫
Cow urine! Cow urine! Who wants to try some fresh cow urine?
India has long been known as a place of magic and mystery. To Hindus, the cow is the most sacred of all animals, and anything that comes out of it is holy. Normally, milk from cows is drunk for strong teeth and bones, but in India, the elixir of life is cow urine. While that sounds disgusting, cow pee contains phosphate, nitrogen, and all sorts of ingredients that many people say help their health. In India, belief in the healing power of the cow is so strong that cough medicines, ear drops, shampoos, and soaps composed of cow urine are widely available.
Would you drink a soda if the main ingredient were cow urine? What would you do if you were extremely ill and none of the numerous Western medical treatments that you have tried worked? This is the premise of National Geographic Channel's (NGC's) The Witch Doctor Will See You Now. Author and explorer Piers Gibbon travels to exotic locations to find out if some of the world's ancient and most extreme medical practices have any merit. In each episode, he gets two volunteer patients to try these so-called cure-all remedies to see if they alleviate their problems.
