As an adventurer, Piers Gibbon searched for Amazon headshrinkers and human cannibals. Now, he joins those suffering from chronic back pain, migraines, eczema, panic attacks and claustrophobia to see if enduring remedies from traditional healers can alleviate what ails them. When Western medicine doesn't work, see the extraordinary lengths people will go to in the name of relief and healing. Gibbon travels to ancient cultures to see if traditional practices - such as swallowing the still-beating heart of a freshly killed chicken or slurping broth from a boiled termite nest - can succeed where prescription drugs, surgery and therapy have failed.
