Abstract:
At one time, virtually all the major forms of naturopathic and magico-healing were known and practiced throughout the Deep Run area, often in lieu of orthodox medical care. People relied on their own ingenuity and on individuals to treat illnesses and provide medications prepared from the herbs, roots, and other substances that grew in abundance on their farms. It is common place in this community for centuries-old traditions to co-exist with modern scientific medical practices, and folk medicine remains vital and meaningful even for passive tradition bearers.
