"In Western medicine, the body goes to the hospital, the mind to the psychiatrist, and the spirit to church. In curanderismo, the healing takes place under one roof." So says Elena Avila, a psychiatric nurse and professional curandera who has, for more than 25 years, effectively combined the best of traditional Western medicine with the ancient health care system of curanderismo. In Woman Who Glows in the Dark, Avila takes readers deep into the practice of a modern-day curandera and the fascinating culture of curanderismo to offer a fresh perspective on physical and emotional wellness. Curanderismo, an eclectic health care system with roots in the ancient civilisation of the Aztecs, advocates that true wellness is impossible unless every aspect of a person can be healed. Showing readers how to become not only physically health but creatively and spiritually whole, Woman Who Glows in the Dark presents a truly global vision of how the gifts of indigenous health care, married with contemporary technology, can create a medicine of the future.
