    Friend of mine is a nurse and they actually keep maggots and leeches at the hospital, so she says, for treatment purposes.

    There are a lot of wild medical treatments out there. I read about people who actually do trepanation to expand their mind. They do it on them selves! Ahh that is pretty freaky to me.

    I am looking into accupuncture for fibromyalgia treatment. I have heard it is a alternative treatment to rx medications. Also reiki massage.

    We still use fire cupping, cept it's not fire.. You have this thing that sucks the air out and it really works.

    I would not have included moxibustion and cupping. They are neither bizzarre nor odd to the millions of users of TCM. A much more 'bizzarre' albeit therapeutically valid inclusion might have been Helminthic Therapy: the treatment of auto-immune disorders via medically-supervised ingestion of intestinal tract parassites such as hook-worm.

    How about the use "medication" to disguise the symptoms that fat @$$e$ suffer because they won't exercise or eat in moderation? That's pretty bizarre.

      so easy to pick on those with a weakness you do not share.
      if it were as simple as choosing very few would be obese by choice. Do you think we enjoy this? Do you know the thousand vows to change, always failing to hold to the promise we make ourselves, our families, our God?
      pray tell where do those how “lack will power” go to acquire will power? How does the undisciplined one become a disciplined person? by discipline is the usual reply , from those who have it -the irony lost on them. So we need to have the very thing we lack in order to acquire it. But our lack of it is clearly or own fault as we should have the will power to have will power, the more scum we. Enjoy your smug superiority, may it bring you happiness to sneer at those who are weaker than you. (by choice, of course)

    Actually ECT is completely legal and widely used in the US. Want to hear the craziest part? It works. Not only that, It is the MOST effective treatment of an acute depressive episode. It has helped many many people that suffer from intractable depression. The side effects are short term memory problems, but that sure does beat suicide. Oh and another thing, when you undergo the treatment, it actually induces a seizure so that's 2/10 that are wrong.

      The author stated ECT was not regulated, she didn't say it was illegal. Not sure what you mean 2/10 are wrong, please elaborate on the second error.
