Disgustingly Healthy

2 x 43 HD
Broadcaster:  ARTE

Disgustingly Healthy tells the story of the riveting rise, the dramatic fall, and the surprising renaissance of the leech and the maggot in Western medicine.

More and more doctors worldwide are now advising their patients to set their repulsion aside in order to see these creatures for what they really are – a wonder of nature, and the perfect healers.

From diabetes, wounds that will not heal and limbs that are about to wither away to the agonizing pain of arthritis – leeches and maggots have the power to heal and bring relief, and they might even have more in store than we know of today.
