The science and art of healing

Lima - Peru - The cuy is a diagnostic tool in which the healer or curandero rubs the animal over the patient's body and then analyzes the body of the guinea pig (or other material) to see what is wrong with the patient. The diagnostic can include anything from mental health to problems with organs to parasites to excessive heat or cold in the body (a traditional Andean health concept). The healer gives suggestions for treatment for his or her patients and can often offer up herbal knowledge for possible solutions.
