Asthmatics queue up for fish therapy in Hyderabad
Thousands of asthma patients from across Andhra Pradesh and other states of India line up for fish ‘prasadam’ (medicine), believed to cure asthma and other breathing disorders. The medicine, which has been offered by the Bathini Goud family for the last 162 years, is placed in the mouth of a live murrel fish and then slipped into the mouth of the patient. The treatment, which is based on a secret herb formula, draws thousands every year.
