Mexican Traditional Medicine
If you ask people what is Mexican traditional medicine, most of them will shyly answer …. medicine plants?
Let’s start with this definition:
“Mexican folk healing, or curanderismo, is a practice that blends Mayan, Aztec, and Spanish Catholic traditions. Folk healers, known as curanderos, believe that their healing abilities are a spiritual vocation. They use a variety of treatments and remedies, and their knowledge is often passed down through generations of families”.
Traditional medicine has been around for centuries, but in recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in this area.
