• A frail old woman uses her tongue to cure eye ailments
• Nana Hava claimed she is the only person in the world who heals with her tongue
• Her service fee normally costs around 10 Euros, but she said she don’t charge patients who are unemployed
A Bosnian octogenarian woman claimed she can cure eye ailments just by licking the eyeballs of patients. She said she is the only person in the world who heals with her tongue.
80-year-old Hava Cebic, or “nana Hava” as she is known locally, can remove foreign objects from the eyes like pieces of lead, iron, coal, sawdust and glass with the use of her tongue. A quick dab of her saliva can cure dry eyes, conjunctivitis and other eye allergies, she claimed.
She assured patients that possible infection is avoided because she sterilizes her tongue with a swig of alcohol before every healing session.
According to Mirror, nana Hava said she learned to cure eye ailments from a woman who was also called Hava.
“I learned this from a woman who was also called Hava. Unfortunately, I cannot pass this to my descendants, because my children are too disgusted to put their tongue on someone’s eye,” she said.
She said she does not charge patients who are unemployed or those who do not have money, but her service fee normally costs around 10 Euros.
Nana Hava said she expects people in her village to cut off her tongue when she dies, so it can continue to heal patients with eye problems.
