Art of the Witch Doctor and Folk Medicine

Psychosomatic medicine, also known as folk magic or the Witch Doctor. An herbalist but much more. The shamen doctor of sorts. These would not only understand but accept consistent variation of talisman’s, verbal charms, and prayers or ritual. Pragmatic in the most natural style.

Any folk doctor would know the psychological view of human with nature applied. The understanding of how to correlate the internal to an external outlet. An alchemy of the mind with natural aspects. This is a traditional healer. Western medicine, or practical man-made material healing is the alchemy of science. Both coexist not to contradict, rather aid. All sides of a Rubik’s cube must be solved for completion. Mystic exists for being unknown, simply this. Potentially dangerous, yes. Only because people fear what is unknown. Lost or not, it’s true and will always exist.
