A woman with a love of alternative medicine almost died when her organs started shutting down. Zeng, 51, injected the juice of 20 different fruits into her bloodstream using a homemade IV drip. Her temperature started to rise and she felt itchy all over but didn’t do anything about it.

It was only when her husband asked her what was wrong because she didn’t look very well that Zeng was taken to hospital in Guiyang, China. She was then transferred to an intensive care unit after her condition deteriorated on February 22. Doctor Liu Jianxiu told local media that she had contracted an infection and caused damage to her heart, kidney and liver. She was left fighting for her life after developing sepsis and when her organs started failing. Doctors carried out dialysis to clear her blood of fruit juice and she was given antibiotics. Her condition improved after five days and the woman said she thought fruits were ‘very nutritious and it would not do me harm by injecting them into my body’. The case prompted the hashtag #OldWomanPutsJuiceIntoVeins.
