A really old woman has stunned many people with her incredible healing power which she employs in curing people’s poor eyesight.
Hava Celebic, or ‘nana Hava’ as she is known to locals in her village in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is an 80-year-old woman who has supposedly cured 5,000 people of blindness using the unusual technique.
According to Metro UK, the woman claims to be the only person in the world who possess the ability to heal with her tongue, which makes the 10 euros she charges seem something of a bargain.
Hava uses her tongue to remove pieces of lead, iron, coal, sawdust and glass from eyeballs after sterilising her mouth with alcohol.
Patients raise their eyelid so she can begin licking in search of a foreign body.
‘I learned this from a woman who was also called Hava,’ she explained.
‘Unfortunately, I cannot pass this to my descendants, because my children are too disgusted to put their tongue on someone’s eye.
‘I’ve been told that people will cut out my tongue when I die so the village can continue to treat people.’
Her patients are not only restricted to locals with people, from Americans to Russians, travelling in search of her services.
‘There are a lot of those that modern medicine could not help,’ she added. ‘They came to me out of the hospital with swollen eyes, I clean them and remove the speck.
‘I don’t charge licking for those who are not employed and have no money but my service fee normally costs around 10 Euros.’
