Much we see in newspapers every day, notices of different healers, spiritists, as several of them, very famous in Peru. According to specialists, healer listens to the problems of the sick, and the success of their tasks is based on that it considers the psychological aspect and gives concrete solutions to everyday life situations. According to a series of investigations, we can say the following: * the 66 per cent of healers are women. ** The 63 per cent of the total men and women are over age 50. * Almost all belong to a low socio-economic level. ** Approximately 50 percent has fulfilled its primary instruction, while others are illiterate.
But the most significant feature of healers, is the practice of prayer and strong faith in God, they believe that evil spirits want to seize persons if they have weak blood, and so we must overcome them. The question is: does emerges as an alternative to the dehumanization of orthodox medicine, or? simply it is a business that speculates on the sensitivity of people?. Quackery is the practice of curing diseases and spells by healers. The techniques used are not approved by the medicine. Some believe that healers have gifts that are granted by God, although not everyone agrees with this. How is a clinic of a healer? As a place with much mysticism, some friends described me one to which they were announced: the place at which we arrived was a rustic House that stood at the foot of a hill and the interior was lit only by the light of the Moon that entered through a small window. In the center of the room was a wide and long table full of Saints and sacrilegious objects. The host told us the reason for the presence of some objects on it: an image of the Virgin Mary, for which we take care of all evil during the ceremony; the cross of Christ, to remind that the he gave his life to save us from all sin and redeem us; seashells; stones; huacos; swords; sticks wood with male and female figures; florida water; perfumes of all brands and flavours, so spirits feel grateful and tell us what you want to know.
