Locals say taking a sand bath is a natural therapy with powers to cure many medical conditions. Patients relax in the shade before treatment, which includes massages by the feet of health workers after they submerge their patients up to their neck in the desert. Patients drink mint tea in tents following the treatment. REUTERS/Asmaa Waguih PICTURE 17 OF 24 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "THE HOT SAND BATHS OF SIWA". SEARCH "ASMAA SIWA" FOR ALL IMAGES

Traditional medicine doctors attend an anti-government rally in Seoul January 17, 2013. Thousands of traditional medicine doctors closed their clinics across the country and rallied in central Seoul on Thursday to protest against a government project to develop new medicine based on herbal remedies. They demanded the government to annul a policy which classifies herbal remedies as prescription medication, which effectively prohibits traditional medicine doctors from handling the new drugs, according to local media. A sign (C) reads,"Dissolve the Korea Food & Drug Administration which liquidates traditional medicine!".
