Madagascar: Ombias Healer, Tibi’s stomach treatment, and Sacred Seeds
The Healing Seekers Team explores Madagascar and spends time with a healer known as an Ombias. An Ombias heals both through information received form the spirits or ancestors and with medicinal plants. His wife, a Tromba, heals through spiritual embodiments. In this segment, the team’s Director of Videography, Esteban Barrera ( “Tibi”) has a stomach issue that the healer agrees to help. Although the treatment is quite uncomfortable, Tibi continues to feel better throughout the day.
