Nothing compared with John Brinkley's goat-gland therapy. That was NUTS! (http://www.nutsthefilm.com)

I vaguely remember a nonsense song from when I was a wee lad that had as part of the chorus:

I am the travelling faith healer,
I can make the blind to talk,
The deaf to see,
The dumb to walk.

That may not be exact, but it made an impression on me that many people who make such claims as to miraculous cures are probably not worth listening to.
