An article in the New York Times from a year ago on Mexican folk healing. Scroll down for an accompanying informative video. Not only does this article show how folk medicine is at times effective, but it also shows that in many places, even in this country, it continues to be necessary. Also, it addresses illness not just from a naturalistic perspective, but brings in the “spiritual” dimension as well.
