Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The Tarahumara, one of North America s oldest surviving aboriginal groups, call themselves Raramuri, meaning nimble feet and though they live in relative isolation in Chihuahua, Mexico, their agility in long-distance running is famous worldwide. Tarahumara Medicine is the first in-depth look into the culture that sustains the great runners. Having spent a decade in Tarahumara communities, initially as a medical student and eventually as a physician and cultural observer, author Fructuoso Irigoyen-Rascon is uniquely qualified as a guide to the Raramuri s approach to medicine and healing. In developing their healing practices, the Tarahumaras interlaced religious lore, magic, and careful observations of nature. Irigoyen-Rascon thoroughly situates readers in the Raramuri s environment, describing not only their health and nutrition but also the mountains and rivers surrounding them and key aspects of their culture, from long-distance kick-ball races to corn beer celebrations and religious dances. He describes the Tarahumaras curing ceremonies, including their ritual use of peyote, and provides a comprehensive description of Tarahumara traditional herbal remedies, including their botanical characteristics, attributed effects, and uses. To show what these practices and the underlying concepts of health and disease might mean to the Raramuri and to the observer, Irigoyen-Rascon explores his subject from both an outsider and an insider (indigenous) perspective. Through his balanced approach, Irigoyen-Rascon brings to light relationships between the Raramuri healing system and conventional medicine, and adds significantly to our knowledge of indigenous American therapeutic practices. As the most complete account of Tarahumara culture ever written, Tarahumara Medicine grants readers access to a world rarely seen at once richly different from and inextricably connected with the ideas and practices of Western medicine.

Description du livre University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, 2015. Hardcover. État : New. 392 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. MEDICINE. The Tarahumara, one of North America's oldest surviving aboriginal groups, call themselves Rar‡muri, meaning "nimble feet"Ñand though they live in relative isolation in Chihuahua, Mexico, their agility in long-distance running is famous worldwide. Tarahumara Medicine is the first in-depth look into the culture that sustains the "great runners." Having spent a decade in Tarahumara communities, initially as a medical student and eventually as a physician and cultural observer, author Fructuoso Irigoyen-Rasc—n is uniquely qualified as a guide to the Rar‡muri's approach to medicine and healing. In developing their healing practices, the Tarahumaras interlaced religious lore, magic, and careful observations of nature. Irigoyen-Rasc—n thoroughly situates readers in the Rar‡muri's environment, describing not only their health and nutrition but also the mountains and rivers surrounding them and key aspects of their culture, from long-distance kick-ball races to corn beer celebrations and religious dances. He describes the Tarahumaras' curing ceremonies, including their ritual use of peyote, and provides a comprehensive description of Tarahumara traditional herbal remedies, including their botanical characteristics, attributed effects, and uses. To show what these practicesÑand the underlying concepts of health and diseaseÑmight mean to the Rar‡muri and to the observer, Irigoyen-Rasc—n explores his subject from both an outsider and an insider (indigenous) perspective. Through his balanced approach, Irigoyen-Rasc—n brings to light relationships between the Rar‡muri healing system and conventional medicine, and adds significantly to our knowledge of indigenous American therapeutic practices. As the most complete account of Tarahumara culture ever written, Tarahumara Medicine grants readers access to a world rarely seenÑat once richly different from and inextricably connected with the ideas and practices of Western medicine. 22 black-and-white Illustrations, 3 maps, 4 tables. Fructuoso Irigoyen-Rasc—n is a psychiatrist in McAllen, Texas. A former researcher at universities in Mexico and the United States, he has written extensively about Rar‡muri ethnography and medical conditions. Alfonso Paredes is Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California-Los Angeles and author of more than 100 medical papers, including several on the Tarahumara. "In Tarahumara Medicine, Fructuoso Irigoyen-Rascon reveals, for the first time in a single volume, the complex healing system of the Rar‡muri of northwestern Mexico. He provides firsthand information on Rar‡muri concepts of illness, healing, and the soul, and a comprehensive ethnobotanical guide to medicinal plant use. This thorough, readable volume belongs in every library and collection devoted to the Rar‡muri or to the indigenous peoples of Mexico, American Indians, American Indian medicine, or American Indian ethnobotany."ÑEnrique Salm—n, author of Eating the Landscape: American Indian Stories of Food, Identity, and Resilience (Key Words: Tarahumara Medicine, Fructuoso Irigoyen-Rascon, Alfonso Paredes, Latin America, Ethnobotany, Healing, Rar‡muri, Mexico, Chihuahua, Mexico, Long-distance Running). book.
