India Fish Medicine
A member of the Goud family administers “fish medicine” to a young asthma patient in Hyderabad, India, Friday, June 8, 2012. Started by the Bathini Goud family, the therapy is a secret formula of herbs, handed down by generations only to family members. The herbs are inserted in the mouth of a live sardine or, murrel fish and slipped into a patient's throat. (AP Photo/Mahesh Kumar A)
