With every new year, there comes a set of new innovations that slowly make their way into the public eye. While you’ve heard of many, there are still innovations that are being perfected and haven’t been spoken of before.
Crowd-Sourced Data Collection
Crowd-sourced data collection is a way of monitoring pollutants and other allergen levels that are in the air surrounding people. At the moment, it is an application called AirRater and is being used and tested in Australia.
Those that use the application enter the symptoms they may be experiencing, and based on the air levels around them, the app then helps to improve their surrounding air quality.
Live Fish Treatments
This may cause some confusion, but in some places in the world, swallowing fish is used as a means of treatment for certain ailments. In southern India, a duo known as the Bathini Goud helps people swallow live fish.
The swallowing of the fish is rumored to help improve symptoms caused by asthma and other issues plaguing the respiratory system.
Many things have been said to help pregnant women and aid in the development of their unborn child. None of those treatments sound as bizarre as dolphin therapy.
There is a hotel in Lima where pregnant women can spend time beside a large pooling area, and dolphins can swim up and nuzzle their growing bellies. Apparently, the dolphins help to improve the baby’s brain development.
This kind of stimulation may mean that a woman goes into labor at any moment, and she’ll need air ambulance services.
In Tokyo, the use of snails can help to improve the appearance of one’s skin. What happens is the snail is placed on the skin, and the slime that the snail excretes helps to moisturize and soften the skin.
This facial is known to relieve dry patches and can help users that experience things like eczema.
This one may not sound surprisingly new, but it does take people by surprise whenever they hear about it. People all over the world have talked about the benefits of drinking and bathing in their own urine.
