When a pain killer or dose of peneciline doesn't work there is always the route of alternative medicine. In the Western world this might involve some acupuncture, but in other parts of the world crazy cures are rife. From bee stings to having a turtle bite you in the face. Nothing is crazy enough if it works. The fun stops, however, when parts of endangered species such as rhinos and tigers, get used because it is believed they can cure anything from baldness to erection problems to aids.
