*note that curanderismo (from the Spanish word curar, to cure/to heal), or the healing practices for mental, emotional, physical and spiritual illnesses through a mix of Amerindian and African practices with Catholic elements, herbalism, is not only found in Mexico but is based largely across Central and South America and some in the United States and Southern Europe. It is not a creation or affiliate of the state.
