Bush medicine is the concept of healing an individual through the natural environment. It treats not only the physical but entwines with the spiritual healing also. Healing required two doctors. There was the spiritual doctor and the ‘medicine man.’ The spiritual doctors were considered the supreme authority and were in charge of curing the ill through correcting spiritual disharmony. They were the ones who would take on the full responsibility of both the diagnosis and the treatment. The spiritual doctor also had the ability to be able to determine the cause of death.
