Despite allopathic and traditional healing systems having a common goal in helping patients, the two systems are fundamentally too divergent in their views for any meaningful integration. Healers might say that their ancestors guide them, that they know all there is to be known, but I believe there is still place for new knowledge that can be accepted by traditional healers.
