Traditional Healers

Here are some pictures of traditional healers - Chinese, Indian and Tibetan. Note that they are all taking the patient's pulse. The fourth picture is of an Arabic herbalist. I took the final picture in Sri Lanka last month while visiting the Dalada Maligawa. I have been there many times but never before noticed this sculpture. It appears to be of a man massaging a monk's foot. Most unusual!

Dr. Adams, the spell caster, was truly godsend. First, he cleansed me with UGA oil and cleansing water to take off bad luck, bad spells, and witchcraft. The great traditional healer also used magic and anointing oil for good luck and stopped creditors, bad debts, and loans from haunting me.
