Modern medicine and shamanistic ritual: a case of positive synergistic response in the treatment of a snakebite.

Abstract

There are few cases of ritualistic curing, observed under clinical conditions, described in the literature. This case study documents the shamanistic treatment of a snakebite, in combination with modern medical techniques. The positive response of the patient demonstrates the importance of the ethnopharmacological response, even with present-day medicine.
