The Navajo folk medicine and its impact on health-seeking behaviors.
The Navajo folk refers to the traditional healers who used natural cures to heal diseases. The Navajo folk medicine has remained preserved through the pass of generations as Navajo people have always relied on ancient medicinal practices as the primary solution to healing diseases. However, modernity has seen residents from the Navajo Nation incorporating contemporary medicine in the society following the establishment of modern Western hospitals on the reservation (Cunningham & Andrews, 2017).
