Ritual Healing

Ritual healing is a form of traditional or alternative medicine rooted in spiritual or religious practices. Ritual healing can involve a wide range of ceremonies and materials, depending on the culture, and may be used to treat physical, mental, or emotional problems. For example, Sangomas are traditional healers in South Africa who use medicinal herbs, drumming, and animal sacrifice to summon the spirits of the ancestors, treat disease, and address other concerns in the community.
