Sample Episode: 5: Traditional Healing
Most of us expect doctors backed by science and technology to treat us, but for many in Africa the preferred choice are Sangoma’s and Inyanga’s or Healers and Herbalists.
We profile Sangoma Michael Imhlongo in his village treatment mud hut. His clientele come to him from ailments ranging from sexual diseases to problems of the ‘heart’- lost or broken love. His remedies range from tars and pastes to special sacrifices to trap evil spirits.

Makose Shez visits our Sangoma. She is a registered hospital nurse and a Sangoma Healer. Makose Shez guides us into the spiritual and herbalist world of the Sangoma.
