The Sacred Wisdom of Women's Healing Arts: Wise Women, Witches, Midwives, And Shamans
Women have known natural ways to support the health of our wombs, breasts, bodies, cycles, and sexuality for thousands of years.
The sacred wisdom of women’s healing arts has been passed along from women to women for generations through art, song, stories, apprenticeships, visions, and dreams.
This is the knowledge of the ancestors, grandmothers and the wise women.
In cultures all over the world, there are traditions of women healers, these are the midwives, herbalists, healers, priestesses, shamans, granny healers and medicine women.
Since prehistoric times, women were healers.
In Paleolithic times, humans honored the divine feminine through art, culture, and ceremony, and thus women’s health and spirituality were honored and nurtured.
In cultures that are honoring of the divine feminine, women had powerful roles as medicine women, both as healers and as shamans or priestesses.
This was the way of women healers from North America, to Ancient Europe, to Africa, Asia, and South America.
It is only in the past few thousand years that women’s central role as healers in society has been suppressed, and at times quite violently.
In the Middle Ages, thousands, if not millions of women, were killed throughout Europe, and wisdom of the wise women for healing and midwifery was lost or sent underground.
Throughout the times of the European witch hunts, the healers and midwives were targeted as the worst of the witches, because they provided healing outside of the church’s select group of approved male doctors.
The teachings, songs, and stories of the ancestor midwives, wise women, and grandmothers are encoded within our DNA, we just need to remember how to download this primal wisdom once again into our bodies, hearts, and spirits through the ancient practice of shamanic women’s healing arts.
A Chukchee proverb is “Woman is by nature a shaman” and women is by nature also a healer.

There are many more options available to women than drugs and surgery, the big two choices from Western allopathic medicine, which views women’s reproductive organs as good for two things: making babies or making cancer.
Thus, doctors today are quicker to recommend preventative removal of a women’s breasts, uterus, and ovaries over cleansing, nutrition, acupuncture, massage therapy and plant-based medicine.
Women can take charge of their health and prevent and treat many hormonal, breast, and pelvic health concerns naturally and avoid medical intervention.
