A "Believe It or Not" Episode of Medical Conquests by the Indigenous Peoples of South America and the African Descendants Domiciled Mainly in Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.097
Pages: 
92–3
Synopsis: 
This paper provides insight into medicinal/botanical cures and the management of diabetes mellitus among the ‘Warao’ and ‘Guajiro’ indigenous Indians of Venezuela. Mention is also made of traditional and holistic practices among the East Indian population of Trinidad and Tobago. All of the above is based on age-old customs, traditions, beliefs and practices of these people in the field of traditional/complementary medicine.
INTRODUCTION
 
Except for the professional work conducted by a few adventurous anthropologists such as Roth (1970) and Johannes (1963), little is actually known about the great impact that the Warao of north eastern Venezuela and the Guajiro of Zulia State near to Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela, have made on both allopathic and traditional medicine in the modern world.

Issue:

Synopsis: 
This research paper deals with the body’s built-in mechanisms to ward off cancer. It also attempts to highlight the use of carefully selected foods that will protect against the ravages of cancer.
INTRODUCTION
 
The ‘land and seed’ theory hinges on the principles and practice of Ayurvedic medicine which postulates that, “if you are strong enough, cancer does not stand a chance”. The theory expounds that the human body is the ‘land’ and all the cancer causing pathogens are the ‘seed.’
