Medicinal plants used in a Totonac community of the Sierra Norte de Puebla: Tuzamapan de Galeana, Puebla, Mexico.

Martinez Alfaro MA.

Totonac Indians, like other aboriginal peoples, use many plants, animals and minerals in treating illness. We collected our information among mountain dwelling Totonacs (totonacos de la Sierra). These Totonacs from the mountain areas are only beginning to be studied from an ethnobotanical viewpoint. Here we report on their herbal remedies and briefly discuss their traditional medicine. Finally, the role of Western medicine in Totonac life is analyzed.
