Curanderismo is the practice of traditional or “folk” medicine in Latin American culture. The traditional healers, called Curanderos, believe that their ability to heal others is a spiritual calling and is usually passed down through generations of families. They practice a variety of treatments, such as using herbs and spiritual cleansings, to heal both “folk” illnesses and spiritual ailments common in Mexican culture. Curanderismo is still used by many people today throughout Latin America, even in the United States among Mexican Americans.
