Healers, or Shamans are called in Spanish curanderos or brujos. People think they can cross over to and manipulate the spiritual world, either for good or for evil. It is believed that diseases are caused by a disequilibrium, and that in order to heal them, shamans have to enter into a trance in order to travel to the spiritual world.
Here’s an example of it used in a sentence:
El curandero compró hierbas en el mercado. (The healer purchased herbs in the market.)
