A Cherokee physician, psychiatrist and psychologist, Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona wasn't satisfied with Western medical explanations about why people couldn't be healed. After all, he had witnessed miraculous recoveries as he grew up around traditional healers. We discover that the various aspects of holistic medicine today were all present early-on in Cherokee practice with such specialties as herbalists, midwives, laying on of hands and setting bones, water cures, storytellers, and ceremonialists.

On the subject of how ceremony works in healing, Dr. Mehl-Madrona jokes that 70% of a patient's healing is his own, 20% is spirit's work, and 10% is the show put on to make people believe they've been healed. Today, Dr. Mehl-Madrona effortlessly integrates Cherokee wisdom with modern training to affect the most beneficial healings.

It wasn't about what I thought it would be MORE ABOUT.. I went into watching this expecting to hear more about COYOTE MEDICINE as in how it works within our lives. This 23 minute talk only touched the mention of it. Otherwise the interview is one of interest in finding out more about this individual and his practice in the cherokee tradition.
