Home remedies are not uncommon in Indian households. From acne to hair loss to stomach ache, we try to rely on traditional ways to solve any problem.

But a Chinese man went a bit too far to treat his constipation and abdominal pain himself at home. The 50-year-old man shoved a 30-cm eggplant up his anus after suffering for two days, Shanghaiist reported.

Needless to say, his unusual way of treating his problem did not relieve him of his agony but caused nausea and vomiting.

When the man finally decided to go to a hospital, his X-ray report showed that the eggplant was shoved so hard that it reached up to his lungs, causing more all the more damage to the organ.

The doctors decided to operate and remove the vegetable from the man’s body.
