Thai Remedy

Eastern medicine practices often differ greatly from those in the West. In Thailand, many people still rely on traditional health remedies that have been passed down through many generations. Take, for example, this large leaf in the front seat of this Bangkok taxi which is supposed to cure certain ailments. The driver told me that he'll chew on this leaf to aid in digestion and to help keep him hydrated. In the West, most people would simply pop a few pills and drink Sprite.
