Placenta-Using Doc Now Wanted By Authorities

When we last heard about Mariana Kovacevic, the Serbian housewife/healer was treating Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie’s (right) injured ankle with a special massage using baby placenta. Today the Serbian health authorities are looking for the one-time pharmacology doctor turned physiotherapist who they say has been operating without a license and may be guilty of tax evasion as well.

The news reports are backtracking from saying the treatment involved babies, now saying that her unusual treatment methods use HORSE placenta instead. Regardless of the source of the placenta, there aren’t any complaints from her clients.

“It’s good, I’m happy. The woman is a miracle,” Van Persie was quoted after being treated at her apartment.

“Mariana is amazing,” said former Serbia player Dusan Petkovic.

“She saved the careers of several Serb and foreign players. All those muscle injuries, including ruptures, she is treating without a mistake.

“She uses a combination of electricity and the miracle gel that is her exclusive product. The electric current goes through a stick holding the gel, which is applied to the injured spot.”

Is There Anything Baby Placenta CAN’T Do?

Following a former teammate’s recommendation, Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie is headed to Belgrade in search of an alternative healing method for his injured ankle.

The Dutchman is, with his coach’s, team’s and doctor’s permission, going to be visiting with Mariana Kovacevic, a Serbian housewife who previously worked on Van Persie’s one-time teammate Danza Lazovic’s injured hamstring. Initially ruled out for 5 weeks, after seeing the Serbian healer Lazovic was back out on the pitch in a week.

“She is vague about her methods but I know that she first massages you for a long time with placenta fluid,” Van Persie said. “I am going to give it a try.

“It can’t do any harm and if it helps, it helps. I’ve been in contact with Arsenal’s chief physio about it. The club has allowed me to have this treatment done.”

Gross. I almost think I’d rather be injured than have baby placenta rubbed on me. Unless there’s stem cells in there, in which case, gimme gimme gimme.
