The Anthropology of Medicine: From Culture to Method

By Lola Romanucci-Ross; Daniel E. Moerman et al. | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This research would not have been possible without the collaboration of the numerous healers and other inhabitants of San Juan Guichicovi, who are the traditional keepers of this knowledge. I am particularly grateful to Don Abelardo Ascona and Doña Glafida Figeroa, their family and to Maestro Erasto Gonzalez. I would like to thank H. Rimpler, R. Hertel, and U. Kö hler (all of Freiburg) for their continuous interest and help. The botanical identification at MEXU was performed in collaboration with the numerous specialists of this institution. I would like to thank particularly D. Lorence (now Hawaii), T. Ramamoorthy, R. Torres, and Fr. Ramos.

Financial support by the "Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst" ( Bonn, F.R.G.), the "Secretarfa de Relaciones Exteriores" (México D.F.), the Freiburger Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft (F.R.G.) and the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft" ( Bonn, F.R.G.; through a grant for phytochemical research on Mexican Indian medicinal plants) is gratefully acknowledged. An earlier version of this chapter is Heinrich ( 1994). Permission to reproduce large parts of this publication was granted by the publisher.


NOTES
1.
Note that the Mixe use Spanish loan words for these two recent types of healers.
2.
The sense of the metaphor is to open, uncork, the bottle/body so the illness will leave.
