Would you be brave enough to try maggot medicine?

I have never heard that maggots are used as the remedy somewhere. It sounds quite disgusting for me. =)The only things that spring to my mind when I hear about worms, maggots are dead plants or body.
On the other hand , using maggots is more safely then undergo operation that could be very dangerous.
Anyway, if my life is up to maggots I will agree to use it.

Well, i think that it may be efficient some time but after two days three or four of the maggots may enter in your body so they can grow up and have children in your body! Yuck!

If you have a problem that only maggots can heal you have to use it even if they look disgusting...
