  • About the Book

    An accessible guide to time-honoured Indigenous wisdom, healing recipes, and wellness rituals for modern life from an experienced curandera. In Earth Medicines, Felicia Cocotzin Ruiz, a curandera (or traditional healer) who is a Xicana with Tewa ancestry, combines Indigenous wisdom from many traditions with the power of Water, Air, Earth and Fire. She reminds us that the natural elements are the origins of everything and can heal not only our bodies, but the mind and spirit as well.

    Be supported on your path to wellness with lifestyle practices and recipes perfected by Ruiz in her twenty-five years of training and working as a curandera. Ruiz teaches readers to be their own healers by discovering their own ancestral practices and cultivating a personal connection to the elements. The chapters are organised by each element, with recipes and advice for example on: . promoting inner harmony through hydrotherapy for headache relief, Mayan tea to calm the mind;  nurturing beauty inside and out with a Tepezcohuite honey mask: Salt of the Earth Deodorant; or taking care of the spirit by creating an ancestral altar, making loose incense, or performing a Mayan Bajo steaming ritual.

    FELICIA COCOTZIN RUIZ (Tewa/Xicana) is a curandera and Indigenous foods activist whose work is deeply rooted in the healing properties of sacred plants. Curanderismo has been practiced throughout the Americas for over five hundred years, with each healer offering a unique skillset applying their natural gifts, training, or cultural practices.
