About this product
- DescriptionThe practice of curanderismo, or Mexican American folk medicine, is part of a historically and culturally important health care system deeply rooted in native Mexican healing techniques. This is the first book to describe the practice from an insider's point of view, based on the authors' three-year apprenticeships with curanderos (healers).Robert T. Trotter and Juan Antonio Chavira present an intimate view of t only how curanderismo is practiced but also how it is learned and passed on as a healing tradition. By providing a better understanding of why curanderos continue to be in demand despite the lifesaving capabilities of modern medicine, this text will serve as an indispensable resource to health professionals who work within Mexican American communities, to students of transcultural medicine, and to urban ethlogists and medical anthropologists.
- Author BiographyRobert T. Trotter II is Arizona Regents' Professor in the department of anthropology at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Juan Antonio Chavira is Court Master for the Fourth Administrative Judicial Region in San Antonio.
