    Healing Insanity
    A Study of Igbo Medicine in Contemporary Nigeria
    by Patrick E. Iroegbu

    The professionals have spoken! Patrick E. Iroegbu’s Healing Insanity: A Study of Igbo Medicine in Contemporary Nigeria is a comprehensive and essential read!
    This is a book that deserves to be read as it shapes the critical path towards understanding ways of healing insanity in a culture-specific context, crosscutting perspectives for a relationship between indigenous healing and the biomedical sphere. – Prof. René Devisch (Africa Research Centre, University of Leuven)
    This book is written with a clear purpose for everyone to read – to understand and heal insanity – and indeed provides a thick piece of cultural philosophy and vernacular of Igbo medicine in hopes of putting cultural wisdom in pursuit of integral health car
