Herbal and Magical Medicine draws on perspectives from folklore, anthropology, psychology, medicine, and botany to describe the traditional medical beliefs and practices among Native, Anglo- and African Americans in eastern North Carolina and Virginia. In documenting the vitality of such seemingly unusual healing traditions as talking the fire out of burns, wart-curing, blood-stopping, herbal healing, and rootwork, the contributors to this volume demonstrate how the region’s folk medical systems operate in tandem with scientific biomedicine. The authors provide illuminating commentary on the major forms of naturopathic and magico-religious medicine practiced in the United States. Other essays explain the persistence of these traditions in our modern technological society and address the bases of folk medical concepts of illness and treatment and the efficacy of particular pratices. The collection suggests a model for collaborative research on traditional medicine that can be replicated in other parts of the country. An extensive bibliography reveals the scope and variety of research in the field. Contributors. Karen Baldwin, Richard Blaustein, Linda Camino, Edward M. Croom Jr., David Hufford, James W. Kirland, Peter Lichstein, Holly F. Mathews, Robert Sammons, C. W. Sullivan III

-- Reveals the sorcerer's apprentice in an entirely new light. -- Includes never before published photos of Carlos Castaneda. -- Describes in detail their marriage. -- His first four books are discussed along with the impact the publications had on the couple's lives. We see young Carlos in the years before his fame, charming but remote and elusive; a drop-out from his anthropology courses at UCLA with no clear sense of direction. Learn of his eight year struggle, marked by many false starts and long periods of uncertainty, before he found the right shape for his message in The Teachings of Don Juan. There is the marriage: a long-distance, on-again off-again affair with its faked Mexican divorce. And then Margaret's second marriage and the birth of a son -- clearly not the biological child of Carlos -- but for whom he developed a long-lasting affection. For the thousands of readers who have longed to meet the author of The Teachings of Don Juan, Margaret Castaneda's intimate portrait of this world famous author will be a long awaited reward. A Magical Journey with Carlos Castaneda takes us behind the almost legendary public image in his rare personal appearances and reveals a fascination and deliberately mysterious man in a light we have never seen before. -- Bernard Shir Cliff, Past Vice President and Editor in Chief, Ballandne Books and Warner Books This highly readable report incorporates the author's extensive first-hand experiences with an enigmatic sorcerer's apprentice and interprets the most crucial years of Castaneda's writing career. This entertaining book will delight Castaneda's supporters and skeptics alike. -- Jay C. Fikes, Author Carlos Castaneda, Academic Opportunism and the Psychedelic Sixtie

Curandero

Part personal pilgrimage, part compendium of medical knowledge, this moving book reveals curanderismo as both a contemplative and a medical practice that can offer new approaches to ancient problems.

Eliseo Torres, known as "Cheo," grew up in the Corpus Christi area of Texas and knew, firsthand, the Mexican folk healing practiced in his home and neighborhood. Later in life, he wanted to know more about the plants and rituals of curanderismo. Torres's story begins with his experiences in the Mexican town of Espinazo, the home of the great curandero El Niño Fidencio (1899-1939), where Torres underwent life-changing spiritual experiences. He introduces us to some of the major figures in the tradition, discusses some of the pitfalls of teaching curanderismo, and concludes with an account of a class he taught in which curanderos from Cuernavaca, Mexico, shared their knowledge with students. Part personal pilgrimage, part compendium of medical knowledge, this moving book reveals curanderismo as both a contemplative and a medical practice that can offer new approaches to ancient problems. From Curandero ". . . for centuries, rattlesnakes were eaten to prevent any number of conditions and illnesses, including arthritis and rheumatism. In Mexico and in other Latin American countries, rattlesnake meat is actually sold in capsule form to treat impotence and even to treat cancer. Rattlesnake meat is also dried and ground and sprinkled into open wounds and body sores to heal them, and a rattlesnake ointment is made that is applied to aches and pains as well."
