Looking for a new prescription for serious illness? Take eight intrepid patients, add a team of indigenous medicine men and shamans, and mix for 30 days in the Peruvian Amazon. Suffering from conditions ranging from Parkinson's to prostate cancer to diabetes, these patients are motivated by a commitment to heal naturally and sheer desperation to end their suffering. Immersed in nature, silence and solitude, shamanic medicine ceremonies open them to the emotional and psychological issues underlying their dis-ease. The experienced shamans mindfully harvest and prepare specific remedies for their patients, with treatments that include healing songs and spiritual counsel. Entering the heart of healing in the heart of the Amazon, we find that saving the rainforest really does mean saving ourselves.

The story is very well filmed and edited. I felt I got to know each person in the small amount of time that they and their maladies were explained.
A diverse set of issues, too. Each person's challenges were conveyed to varying extents...to the degree that the people were able to share their insights into themselves.
The generosity of the healers, the shamans, was so loving, devoted, and each one cared immensely for what they were doing to help.
I am a health care worker and mainstream hospitals are VERY limited in their ability to help a sick person...with quite an inability to help the patient from the inside out. There are exceptions and allopathy has its place.
The road was difficult for all, healers and ill ones.
A very hopeful and inspiring movie. I especially loved the shaman's discussion around death and western society putting such negativity on the inevitable.
This film gets a 10!!
However, perhaps these indigenous healing practices only work in the context of their amazon existence and not in a western cultural setting.
