The Chinese woman said that her body temperature started to rise and her body was really itchy after she injected the smoothie in her veins.

The 51-year-old woman, surnamed Zeng, was blindly following a folk remedy to improve her health and thought she could better absorb the nutrients in the fruits this way, Chinese media reported.

Others asked how Zeng had acquired a catheter and drip to conduct the procedure, while one wrote: "She is really someone who knows how to conduct intravenous injection and is fearless enough to do it". The direct injection of juices into her body had caused damage to her liver, kidney and heart. "I am happy she survived".
