Think you have something in our eye and can’t get it out? You’ve tried everything from water splashes to eye rolling, but the bothersome alien objects refuse to go? Well, you probably need an 80-year-old granny to lick your eyeballs clean. We’re not kidding. This is actually a thing, and this woman in a village in Bosnia and Herzegovina claims to be the only one in the world capable of such a feat.
Hava Celebic, who is popularly known as ‘Nana Hava’ claims that her unusual – and what many would say, gross – method of cleaning the eyes actually works, and has apparently cured around 5,000 people using the bizarre technique. Nana Hava says she’s the only person in the world to possess the ability to heal with her tongue, and the treatment costs just €10.
A video, which seems to be a bit old, showing her licking the eyeball of a man clean is being widely shared online. She sterilises her mouth and tongue with alcohol, before beginning the licking. According to her claims, she uses her tongue to remove pieces of iron, coal, lead, sawdust and even glass from people’s eyeballs.
The video – as fascinating as it seems – is also equally stomach-churning, so make sure you brace yourself before viewing it.
According to Nana Hava, her kids are too disgusted to learn and practise the skill, and we’re honestly not surprised at that.
