You are on: Egofelix Magazine - Yoruba names for herbs and plants — Nigerian medicine. The orishas, or gods of the Yoruba, were former ancestors such as Oduduwa, the legendary ancestor of all Yoruba people, and his son Ogun. Respect for family and ancestors is so deep that when Yoruba people die, they are buried under the floor of the family house. Their spirits remain with and protect the family. The Yoruba believe that sickness is a whim or punishment of a specific god or ancestor, who must be identified and placated, or else is caused by witchcraft for which the appropriate countercharm must be employed.
They developed a shamanistic medical tradition utilizing both herbalism practiced by the onishegun, herbal healers and divination practiced by the balabwo, priests of the Ifa cult.
The balabwo uses both psychotherapeutic techniques in discussing the illness with the patient, also casts an oracle reading using the Ifa system revealed to the Yoruba by the trickster god Eshu Elegba.
The oracular reading involves throwing a handful of 16 kola nuts from the right to the left hand, 16 times, after which the right hand is checked to see whether an odd or even number of kola nuts remains. The outcome of each set of 4 throws is marked in a sandtray with a single or double line. At the end of this process, the pattern left in the sand tray corresponds to one of the verses of the Odu, which the balabwo interprets for the patient.
Relevant information might include strained relations with family or neighbors who might have deliberately or unwittingly put a curse on the patient. The psychotherapeutic consultation with the balabwo is one part of the overall treatment. It has the effect of calming the patient and engendering a more positive frame of mind. The balabwo recommended that the patient take specific steps to cure the illness.
By sacrificing to a particular god or ancestor, or procuring a specific charm to protect against a malicious spell. The balabwo also send the patient to the onishegun to purchase herbal remedies.
In treating diseases caused by angry gods, sacrifices may be made to the god in question, but special care must be taken not to make other gods jealous in the process. For example, it is often important to make an extra sacrifice to Eshu Elegba when sacrificing to another god, in recognition of the fact that Eshu Elegba is the messenger and mediator between the Yoruba and the gods, and also to prevent him from becoming jealous which would create further problems for the patient.
The advice of the balabwo is essential to ensure that the correct procedures are followed. The important text of Yoruba medicine is the Odu, a collection of verses which is the oracle consulted for diagnosis and treatment by the Ifa priests. The Odu was revealed to the Yoruba people by the god Eshu Elegba.
It should be noted that the Santeria tradition, which was brought to the Americas by African slaves, is descended from the Yoruba teachings. Just want to thank you for this wonderful information about Yoruba medicine and Some herbs in yoruba language. Nnchanwu is igbo as well as dongoyaro ,I commend ur effort just thought u should know that yoruba borrowed some words from other tribe but its not part of our native language.The acquired one could further be divided into the following.
Developed through austerities, observances of fasts and penance. Based on my definition of ASE I will state the major charms that represent ASE, its process of preparation, how they work and their degree of potency.
We have the:. Mayehun Means "Refuse me not" -- It is used when you want a person to grant your request. It could be used in wooing a lady, request for money from a neighbor, a tight fisted friend or a wealthy man.
Note it must be in a polite manner. There is a simple incantation that goes with some Mayehun formulas. Afose Afose means "Speak and come to pass" or "Speak and happen. It is usually prepared with black soap and put inside an animal horn; it could be a Ram's, Cow's, Antelope etc. There are various formulas and some are quite powerful. However note that it is not a general rule that all Afose be mixed in Black soap and kept in horns.
Whatever is spoken might happen immediately or later in future depending on the potency of the charm or the nature of issue the ASE is addressing. Our forefathers possessed some Afoses that they used to control nature elements like rain, fire etc. I personally had one that I used to stop a car from starting; I have personally seen one that was used to dry up a very big tree in three days. The tree was cursed with that Afose.
With the Afose you could place a curse Epe on any object. A chameleon is usually one of the ingredients that plays a prominent role in its preparation, at times the head of a black cobra is used too. This is more of a hypnotizing charm. The person under the spell doesn't really know what he is doing. It is used in compelling people to do the most impossible things.
Things they would naturally not do or refuse to do. It is somewhat difficult to prepare but there are some simple formulas too, however they also vary in degree of potency. The powerful ones that I know has in it as part of its ingredients is the sand of a grave person. To illustrate its power I would narrate an incident that happened which was manipulated by the use of Gbetugbetu. Our forefathers used it when they were attacked by a gang of thieves; they just commanded them to fight each other or hand over their weapons.
Olugbohun The "sound picker. Even if u mistakenly curse your children out of frustration. Now this is not a genie that will drop things physically in front of you, like food, wine and a flying carpet. However it will create a situation that will cause your request to be met. It is not kept in the house but far away in the bush and its consulted only once in a while.
It is very powerful, and can be used in the arts and practice of black magic, if the owner is a bad person. Ogede wewe pupa, ewe esinsin fun fun, ewe sawerepepe, ewe oyo, ewe rekureku, ao gun papo.

According to a modified list by Paniagua, F. This syndrome is primarily reported in the Nigerian culture. Interestingly, I also found another article by Mark Greener on culture bound syndromes and their possibly of soon being extinct. In other words he summarized a few other syndromes like Dhat, Koro, and of course Ode Ori as not the syndrome becoming extinct but the syndrome name as a whole being instead classified as mental disorder instead of a culture bound syndrome due to there symptoms.
Treatments for Ode Ori include pharmaceuticals that are available for use as inhibitors and anxiety agents. Psychotherapy within support groups and some times interventions are also ways of treatments. The biological dimensions of the illness include its symptoms and how it makes the person feel, cultural would be how it is found to be more prominent within the Yoruba Nigerian culture, and the individual dimensions of the illness would be how the person decides to treat the illness with the available resources they have.
