Traditional healers in the conditions of persecution
Since the advent of “big government” that occurred in Europe with the Roman invasion, and in North America and Australasia with English colonisation, folk remedies treatment at best suppressed and at worst been persecuted. This is not surprising, since extensive knowledge of traditional healers and their independence, the use of freely available natural resources, generally place them outside the economic and political control of the government. So the government itself for centuries folk healer – a legacy of the past freedoms of tribal life and thus a threat to their autonomy and power. This is why all governments have sought to fragment and control healing practices. Big government usually is only interested in control and power, and very rarely shows real, genuine interest in the health of their citizens. This is confirmed by the fact that the government could authorize and give the patronage of the sorcerer, methods of treatment which were more deadly than useful while he was under their control.
In the past, fear of repression by the government has caused a sharp reduction in nontraditional methods of treatment and has forced most traditional healers do their work very silently, in a circle of trusted supporters. However, there are some oblasti world, where governments have had limited impact. Natural healers have preserved their knowledge and gave them to the ancestors who continue to practice them today. But such regions in the world very little, mostly they are located in Central America, Central Asia and Korea. With the new resurgence of ethnic practices and medicine all over the world, alternative healing is also gradually gaining strength and slowly but surely returns to its former position, although the number of traditional healers around the world are still much less than in former times.
Modern medicine often cannot help a person for one reason or another. And then just the last hope that person remain non-traditional methods of treatment, because where failed medical – it is can help the psychic. and to take this hope is not entirely correct, or even completely wrong. Different kinds of government exist at best in a limited time. While folk medicine is the medicine of the future. It is beyond time.
