Treating paralysis with pigeon blood

Q: My question is that I have heard many times that patients with paralysis should opt for treatment with pigeon and also the application of the blood of the pigeon on the affected area. It is a common cure for paralysis and evidently very effective. Can you please tell me whether or not this is allowed in Shar’ia purely for treatment and medicinal purposes?


A: For medical treatment it is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
