A woman in Germany is claiming she has been cured of cancer after using a flame-like incense burn to melt the fat around her abdomen and stomach.
The woman, who goes by the name of Maria, claims that by burning fat in the area she is able to release an endorphin-like effect.
Maria is a German-born woman, and has suffered from various conditions including cancer.
She has been using the incense to burn off fat for about two months, she told the AP news agency.
It has been about five months since she started using the burn and she is now able to feel more confident, happy and able to get out of bed and exercise again, Maria said.
