Síndromes o enfermedades culturales
Do you know what “mollera caída” or “empacho” are?
What are Folk Illnesses or Cultural Syndromes?
These are illnesses that don’t appear in traditional medical books but are believed in by people in certain communities.
They have their own causes, preventions, and cures, which can be very different from what a conventional doctor might think.
But what’s interesting is that these illnesses aren’t just physical. They often come with a mix of religious beliefs and symbolism. So when someone suffers from a folk illness, it’s not just a physical ailment; there’s a whole story behind it.
