My first impression was that someone messed with an old sot who passed out at his delinquent son’s frat party, but sometimes the truth is more bizarre.
JINAN, Sept. 14, 2010 A patient receives treatment of Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion at a hospital in Jinan, capital of east China’s Shandong Province, Sept. 14, 2010.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort to facilitate healing. (Credit Image: © Xinhua/ZUMApress.com)
It’s believed by some that Moxibustion “…stimulates blood-flow in the pelvic area and uterus. It is claimed that moxibustion militates against cold and dampness in the body and can serve to turn breech babies.”
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Mugwort is effective for treating rats with trichinellosis. (Gotta be honest here – I never knew that.)
So if any of you have sick rats or need to turn a breech baby or two, cover your eyes with walnut shells, fire up some mugwort and stick some needles in your forehead.
