Doctor - Patient Relationship and the Phenomenon of the Wind in Indigenous Medicine

Douglas (Gunasilan). de Becker

In all indigenous traditions, the foundational cosmology is based around unseen energies, an unseen force, or what most call the “wind”. The ability of stress reduction to alleviate many symptoms is from the indigenous medicine view, due to the observed phenomenon associated with calming or balancing the “wind”. The means to accomplish the goal of organizing the disorganized “wind” is multidimensional. Lifestyle, Diet, and what might be classified as magic are the main means used in the indigenous traditions other than actual material medicines - substances made from herbal-mineral-animal sources. Included in the “magic” would be the bedside manner. This relationship with a healer, and the relationship with a patient from the beginning, constitutes a vehicle for deep and far reaching healing to be established through a simple unthreatening relationship of depth.
