A ritual cleansing of body and spirit
The “limpia” is until today one of the most common practice in curanderismo.
The healer is using plants, chicken eggs, water, mezcal (alcohol) and fire to cleanse spirit and body.
In traditional medicine we believe that each trauma, accident or strong emotional impact brings you out of balance.
An accident for example is never only a physical problem it is always a spiritual problem too.
Being out of balance makes us more vulnerable to physical illness.
