Difference between healers and sanadores

Many people wonder what is the task that a healer must realize and in which it differs from the sanadores, and in spite of so many people similarities between one and other, we can say that a healer usually sits down to listen to the problems of his patient and precisely the success that assumes to him to his there be driven base in which the healer takes into consideration the psychological aspect of his patient, in addition to helping it with concrete solutions to solve the same ones.

According to a survey that was realized in the year 2007 based on a series of investigations realized on the topic, 66 % of the healers is usually women older than 50 years and most of them (including the men also) belong at a greatly low socioeconomic level, and another very common characteristic in the healer is that half of them has gone so far as to complete only his primary studies while another half is illiterate.

Anyhow it is important to emphasize that the distinctive feature of the healers is the fervent practice and prayer to God, since they believe that the malignant spirits want to take possession of the weak persons and that's why it is necessary to conquer them. Bearing in mind that we can say that the principal difference between the healer and the sanador is that the first one possesses a slightly more magic philosophy because while a healer realizes his works, it usually realizes prayers and canticles so much for God, for the virgin and for the Saints. healer - manExactly what it characterizes to the practice of the folk medicine is the magic extract of the practice, also, the same one understands herself like a subjection of the divine thing to influence during the events.

As for the work that they realize we must say that a very habitual postcard is that of the struggle of the healer with the malignant spirits that persons have taken possession of one; precisely it is here where we will be able to notice the biggest difference between a healer and a sanador, since the first one, frequently, fulfills the roll of an exorcist. On the other hand, it is important that we mention the fact that the works of a healer usually collaborate very much you defraud them, therefore generally, there is created a big controversy that leads to a condemnation on the part of the society. Nevertheless, this fact leaves at sight a duality and the fact is that although different types of declarations exist against the practices of a healer, they are the same persons of these social groups that with his requests and pressures, they favor and help to that all this type of practices keeps on being executed, although these remain in a secret plane. On the other hand, the heyday that has been created concerning the healers during the latter decade, as it seems, he is linked straight to the impoverishment, and to the safety about the future, if we bear in mind the type of the people who appeals a healer.

Healers in the antiquity

The practices carried out by a healer, were usually much practised in the ancient epoch so much by the Greeks as the Romans, who had the conviction that the God of the medicine Ascelpio, was appearing in the sleep that there had the very sick persons who in this epoch usually slept in the temples dedicated to his cult, indicating them which it would be the best treatment for the illness or, straight to treat them. For the opposite side, in the ancient testament we can find small references towards the healer, and more concrete it is that that all that when Elysian I treat leprosy Naaman with a ritual bath that I realize in the river Jordan. On the other hand, many persons consider Jesus's miracles with the patients like a quackery luck, although for the church this idea turns out to be a blasphemy approximately in the IIIrd century A.D.

healer - womanThe belief in the power of the healers began to spread and to be generalized, especially that belief in the curative power. In to the antiquity the powers that a healer was possessing were considered to be magicians in some cultures, while in many one was treating others as a divine gift; independently of which age the origin of this power, in that epoch, the healer of any people or village was usually much visited so much to arrange the problems of the life of the persons, as to expel demons of his body and even to exercise some ritual that treats some illness endured by the patient.

The healer supports the idea that the origin of all evil and of every illness, has a lot to do and resides in the ignorance that has the mind about the authentic reality that surrounds us. Of equal way, many people think to the health as a complex link of the physical factors, the emotional ones and the spiritual ones that they usually have a determinant character, in addition to believing that the most effective remedy to obtain the entire healing of an illness, simply consists of using at the same time all those means that are available, including to the prayer.
