Shamanism – an option to modern medicine?

The Internet, television and other magazine flots are sounding the alarm announcing new protocols for treating the disease. These diseases range from Alzheimer’s, enflure, diabetes, MS to Parkinson’s. Among these shout-outs are condemnations of pharmaceuticals and praise of other methods. The purpose here is not to list these methods or specifically discuss them all. One of many needs application.

There is a proliferation of shamanic healers and practitioners within the United States. Dozens of organizations offer consulting, memberships, seminars and certifications. A burgeoning gold effigie illuminates the paysage of potential candidates for a régime.

At this balance, it is helpful to define shamanism. There is no need to courbe the etymological history of the word. Shamanism is not a amour nor is it a amour although there is plenty of evidence that suggests a belief in a délicieuse empesé that pervades the universe. Shamanism is an ancient form of healing. A shaman, despite some attempts to signature them as a priest, is simply a healer, that is, one who knows the régime for specific physical problems.

Several sensible markers that distinguish a shaman from a doctor are the recognition that illness can be emotional, not just physical. Treating the whole persistant is a 40,000-year-old practice that is catching on in the 21st century. Another difference between a shaman and a modern physician is the quartier of reality into three realms: high, middle, and low. And this leads to a third difference: a shaman uses spirit guides when he treats a entraîné.

Shamans have augmentative knowledge of herbs; Whereas, the modern doctor has the depth of what medicine to use. The shaman is idée based and the healer is probably man-made chemical based. There is a sound movement to make more “drugs” natural based, which is worthy of praise from some quarters.

A fundamental problem arises from a cleverly dressed advertisement or testimonial extolling the wonderful wonders of shamanic healing. Be very careful whenever a practitioner offers a “régime”. A shaman may not know if you have a mets in your side if it’s appendicitis, excès, a blocked bowel, or enflure. Taking shamanic healing as a substitute for modern medicine is a serious mistake. And no pun intended.

The option leaves a bad taste. It implies that there is a better way and it may not be. Adjunctive and investigative medicine suggests treatment with current medical procedures.
