We don’t remember medicine until we are ill. It’s the same with our Yoruba medicine , many don’t remember traditional medicine until Western medicine fails them. To be fair, there are just as many or maybe even more for whom native medicine is the first port of call for the simple reason that they cannot afford the cost of Western medical care . But where there are means, the leaning is more towards Western medicine, until of course a problem is encountered that defies orthodox science.
Reasons why people use/don’t use traditional medicine vary, experiences vary. So many have only praises and some have regrets on using Yoruba herbal science. Why the variations? There’s no published directory of herbal practitioners, or widely acknowledged certification , so that there is no way of ascertaining the qualifications of a practitioner before you decide to place yourself in their care. In the days gone by, presumably word of mouth recommendation was all the certification required, and that’s at the root of the problem experienced by people who would use Yoruba herbal practitioners today. Just how many people who do use traditional medicine will own up to the fact? How do you get a recommendation when visits to Babalawo are seen by the educateratti as hush-hush.

Starting around noon Sundays, practitioners of the Santeria faith dance to rumba rhythms.
