Naysha is an internationally-known Peruvian Curandera. Curandera is the name pertaining to female shamans and healers of the Amazon. There are many different kinds of medicine women depending on their specialty of focus – they all have their own different kinds of tools, techniques, and ways of healing.
Naysha heals through medicinal plants, ceremonies, music, and traditions and is adept in the shamanic world. Her connection with plant medicine started before she was born. Her mother could not have children so she, like many Peruvians, went to the shamans to find healing after the medical system had failed her.
The shamanic treatment was successful and Naysha was conceived. Naysha, later, worked as a lawyer for the Peruvian government. This was when she realized that to change society, the individual must first change from the inside. She felt a calling and thus quit her job to go to the Amazonian jungle. There, she remained for several years, learning different healing techniques from the plants and studying with the shamans on how to work with the plant’s, life then brought her from the jungle to the very north of Sweden, north of the polar circle.
