Indigenous Medicine

 

Written Thoughts by - Kevin ‘He Who Has Know Name’ Towt, President of  Oklevueha Native American Church of Orderville, ONAC of Touquerville and Author of the Book, The Second Genesis Transformation: Passage to Spontaneous Regeneration

 

Indigenous Medicine Ways of healing were and still are,widely held in an oral tradition. Within the past 100 years or so, many North American Indigenous Nations have created an alphabet, put their words into a written language and constructed dictionaries to define the meaning of those words and their pronunciations.

 

Until this point, the Old Way was a communication that could be incredibly complex coming in the forms of body posturing and/or hand-sign language…from smoke signals to symbols in animal forms. We can see today the ‘writings’ etched in rock walls standing for thousands of years. This explanation is hardly a fair description of the many and varied forms of communication that went on in the ancient traditions.

 

It is given here to assist a person in seeing why some parts of the Old Ways of transformation have been ‘rediscovered’ in herbal writing and studies of 18th and 19th century European (American) settlers and their herbal doctors. Many individuals went to the indigenous people to learn of their treatments. As such, our understandings and insights of the indigenous knowledge for herbal and other remedies has come to us today largely in a form of Folk Medicine.

 

Herbal doctors would write and publish texts on their experiences with patients. They have shared how the herbs, salves, poultices, liniments and other therapies would influence certain sicknesses, disease and imbalances.

 

What is being added here are the cutting edge insights that modern medical science has been uncovering as it relates to the inner workings of the human body. Knowledge of the kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, pancreas and other organs adds volumes to the origins of what we are when applied in an ancient way.

 

In addition, the success through direct experience achieved by individuals living today brings even further, more insightful possibilities for an entirely new, yet Old Way for the transformation and restoration of the human condition.
