Curanderismo: Demystifying the Health Beliefs and Practices of Elderly Mexican Americans.
Applewhite, Steven Lozano
Health & Social Work, v20 n4 p247-53 Nov 1995
Elderly Mexican Americans (n=25) participated in ethnographic interviews about folk healing and its influence on health care behaviors. Participants relied on modern medicine to treat serious injuries but still considered folk healing a viable alternative when modern health care was unsatisfactory or ineffective. (JBJ)
