Feast your eyes on some delightful cures below.  

1. Deep-fried canary 

Once used by the ancient Romans, this cure is meant to boost blood sugar levels and fatty acids in the body. Works wonders after a messy night out.

8. Pickled sheep's eye in tomato juice 

Nothing says good morning like a glass of pickled sheep eye floating around in red thick liquid in Mongolia.
