Some esoteric home remedies practiced in Narayanganj district, Bangladesh

Amena Khatun, Khoshnur Jannat, Tanvir Ahamed, Rownak Jahan and Mohammed Rahmatullah

In the possible perpetual quest of human beings for treatment and cure of various diseases, the esoteric or a mixture of the paranormal and the supernatural has always played an important role. Since our human ancestors did not have any knowledge of microbes and other causative factors behind occurrence of diseases, their beliefs in the treatment of sickness centered on propitiating angry gods or evil spirits or demons, which they regarded as the causes for sickness. As a result some of the treatment methods, which persist even in the modern age, borders on the esoteric or are esoteric. The objective of this study was to document some esoteric home remedies used in Narayanganj city of Narayanganj district, Bangladesh. While the actual scientific values of these sorts of treatments are dubious, belief plays a large part in the cure of a patient (placebo effect), and so such treatments also need proper documentation.
