People often believe that traditional Andean medicine was backward, and not effective. But in looking into accounts of the past, and by exploring what is at the essence of traditional Inca medicine, we see that that traditional Inca Medicine was actually more advanced than that of most ‘developed’ societies at the time. Embodied within this approach is the recognition that spirituality, connection with nature, and healing are interrelated. The Inca knew well that we heal by connecting ourselves to higher powers, within ourselves, and into the world at large.
