Cured Pork … The Cure For Nose Bleeds?

DETROIT (WWJ) – The cure for a rare nose bleed? According to Doctors at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan, it could be cured pork.

The odd remedy was suggested when a team of doctors were treating a four-year old girl whose blood condition made her nose bleed life-threatening.

They’d tried everything short of methods that could cause long-term side effects– when one of the more experienced doctors suggested salted pork– a method he’d heard could stop bleeding back when he was a military doctor.

It worked, but one of the doctors says don’t try this at home.

“We are not recommending to people in the public to use pork as a routine treatment for nose bleeds. This was done in a referral center – Children’s Hospital with experts in bleeding and she was kept in a highly monitored setting,” Dr. Ian Humphreys told WWJ.

Humphreys is an ear, nose, and throat physician.
