Animal Dung Ointments and Cures
Nothing says medical remedy like animal or human feces. Right? Popularized during ancient Egypt, it was believed that animal dung was a good cure-all as well as the perfect repellent of evil or bad spirits. While some animal dung is found to have a microflora containing antibiotic properties, the use of animal and human excrement will also lead to infections that will likely do more harm than good. Untreated, infections of the flesh can lead to sepsis and, eventually, death. Suddenly, bad spirits don’t seem so bad to have hanging around.
