We all have come across health benefits of fruits and vegetables. But this woman did something ridiculous by injecting fruit smoothie into her veins.
A woman named Zeng, from China, blended 20 different kinds of fruit and deposited the mixture into an intravenous drip. Apparently, she was into ‘unconventional health treatments’, and this is one of the unusual methods she tried – it would be interesting to know what are the other methods she is yet to try.
She started to observe that her arm was getting itchy before coming down with fever. Though, she tried to keep it to herself, her husband noticed she was in distress and convinced her to go to hospital.
The doctors were shocked to see her condition. Doctor Liu Jianxiu told she had developed an infection in the liver, kidney and heart and was at risk of multiple organ failure.
Luckily, the 51-year-old woman was safe after putting her on dialysis, and receiving antibiotics and anti-clotting medicine.
Zeng said: “I had thought fresh fruits were very nutritious and it would not do me harm by injecting them into my body.
“I had no idea that would get me into such trouble.”
Hopefully, she will put an end to her ‘unconventional health treatments’ and stick to the normal routine from now on.
