Housecall for Health: Indonesian Railroad Therapy

Indonesians take unconventional measures to help keep themselves healthy.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon explains in today’s Housecall for Health:

Audio clip:

Desperate patients in Indonesia have resulted to treating themselves with electric therapy by lying on train tracks. Some claim the dangerous waves of electricity sent through their bodies help with high blood pressure, sleeplessness, and even paralysis.  Government officials have tried to put a stop to the electric therapy and medical experts say there’s no evidence lying on the rails do any good.  But with the existing healthcare system, patients say they feel like they have no choice.
