Summary
From bee sting therapy in Taiwan to the insertion of live maggots into wounds in some parts of the United States, folk therapies often seem mysterious and are frequently portrayed as quackery-but they can also be effective. This program examines that paradox, crossing cultural and national boundaries to examine bizarre forms of medicine. Viewers may come to the realization that, despite the relevance and truthfulness of the term "snake oil salesman," some folk remedies do have actual therapeutic or even curative properties
