Bathini Harinath Goud, who is presently in charge of making and administering the fish medicine to asthma patients, in Hyderabad, says that the fish that is swallowed by the patients, cleans the throat region while it slides down the food pipe and is thereby digested. Once the medicine is in the blood stream, it opens up the lungs, which is essentially what is needed for curing asthma. It works like an inhaler, he said. The medicine is effective for a year after that. He gave the example of the parched earth receiving rain water to explain his point.
