Sastun: My Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer

By Rosita Arvigo, with Nadine Epstein

The compelling drama of American herbologist Rosita Arvigo's quest to preserve the knowledge of Don Elijio Panti, one of the last surviving and most respected traditional healers in the rainforest of Belize.

While learning his secrets during her twelve year apprenticeship, she unearthed her life's work: to preserve Don Elijio's ancient healing knowledge and to bridge the gap between modern science and traditional healers' wisdom. Funded by the National Cancer Institute in Washington, DC, Rosita Arvigo was in a race against time, scouring the tropical rainforests of Central America in search of cures for many deadly diseases like AIDS and cancer before they are wiped out by deforestation.
