If you are squea­mish, this doc­u­men­tary may turn your stom­ach.

Bri­tish ad­ven­turer Piers Gib­bon takes two vol­un­teers with health prob­lems to Hong Kong to look at the world of al­ter­na­tive medicine. For­mer marine­turned biker, Rap­ture Barba, has chronic back pain, and Jake Ray has had a lung trans­plant and has no sense of smell.

Cue snake soup, drink­ing snake blood and bile and hav­ing pins stuck in var­i­ous ori­fices, all in the pur­suit of a rem­edy. Fas­ci­nat­ing, but you may have to shut your eyes while watch­ing.
