This post may push the edge of some people’s sensitivities. I add that this was in an email from my neighbor whose wife is from Egypt and, as an eye-witness, confirms that it works.
An Arabic man, Ahkmed, came to Canada from the Middle East, and he was only here a few months when he became very ill. He went to doctor after doctor but none of them could help him.
Finally, he went to an Arabic doctor who said, “Take dees bucket, go into de odder room, poop in de bucket, pee on de poop, and den put your head down over de bucket and breathe in de fumes for ten minutes.”
Ahkmed took the bucket, went into the other room, pooped in the bucket, peed on the poop, bent over and breathed in the fumes for ten minutes.
Coming back to the doctor he said, “It worked. I feel terrific! What was wrong with me?”
The doctor said, “You were homesick.”
