While walking down the street on Saturday I spotted this sign.
A traditional Inyanga is a herbalist, well trained in the knowledge of useful medicinal plants and their uses. Medicinal plants are used for fevers, pain, headaches, gout, rheumatism and digestive problems, to name but a few. The body cures itself most of the time, but it helps psychologically when someone "treats" the problem. In the isolated rural areas they are usually the only "doctor" available.
In the urban areas it's a totally different story, here charlatans abound. Just the name says it all, (Prof.), never mind the etc. at the end). "You name your problem, we have a cure/solution". Yet people are desperate and very gullible, looking for an easy solution to life's problems.
These charlatans often become very wealthy.
