Russian folk remedy for meningitis
Everywhere in Russia, healers treat this disease with leeches: they impose a lot of leeches to the nose and the anus of the patient. In a very short time, the patient feels relieved. It is interesting to note that leeches and banks are two favorite means of Russian healers, and abroad, especially in the USA, these two wonderful remedies are almost not audible. In America, leeches treat only black spots under the eyes, usually appearing after a fight.
