These Hindu Saints Believe Eating Live Fish Cures Asthma

Asthma is a condition that affects the airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. When a person with asthma comes into contact with an asthma trigger, the muscle around the walls of the airways tightens. So that the airway becomes narrower. The lining of the airways becomes inflamed and starts to swell. Often sticky mucus or phlegm is produced. All these reactions cause the airways to become narrower and irritated – leading to the symptoms of asthma.

At present 25% of population suffers allergy in our country. 5% of them are suffering from asthma and even in developed countries like USA there is 10% increase in Asthma patients every year.

Cure by Hindu Saint from 1845 :

Asthma is an awful condition, but we’ve got some great news about the cure for this. No place in the experimental writing does it say, notwithstanding, that gulping a live fish will help you with your breathing issues. In spite of that, an expected 100,000 individuals gathered at India’s Hyderabad’s Exhibition Ground prior this month to do just that.

This yearly custom sees those with breathing issues pushed together to swallow live fish loaded down with herbal paste. The paste is made by the Bathini Goud family, and its ingredients are kept secret. As per their claim, they got the formula from a Hindu saint in 1845.

Administers often clamp their hands over their mouths and noses afterwards to force them to swallow, sometimes giving their neck a quick massage afterwards to help ease the discomfort.

We can just hope that these poor kids going through this agony and still suffering from asthma will get access to some real medicine care someday.
