World Health OrganizationThe World Health Organization has a really neat definition of Traditional medicine:

Traditional medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness.

May we all be so open to things we do not understand.
