Woman Who Glows in the Dark A Curandera Reveals Traditional Aztec Sectrets of Physical and Spiritual Health by Elena Vila with Joy Parker
"An autobiographical account of how a psychiatric nurse specialist became a folk medicine healer; this also explains the origins and practice of one of the oldest forms of medicine in the New World."—Kirkus.
Fascinating and riveting memoir, combines history and practice of curanderismo with Avila's personal journey. Addresses how modern medicine fails to take into account healing the spirit as well as the physical. Spirit and body are one, therefore a holistic approach is needed for an effective cure.
Perfect for anyone interested in traditional Mexican folk healing practices.
