There is even a popular belief that, if you have a bad tooth, you should pray and then gnaw with the tooth a piece of the monastery’s chalk.

After that, the monks surrounded it with bricks. Other legends provide evidences too. According to one of them, monks living in ancient monasteries ingested the chalk to boost health improvement.
