Length: 00:12:26:382 Speaker talks about natural remedies and faith in god. She went to a place called Campo Anamaría. There was a boy who was severely ill and on the verge of dying. She asked the parents about their faith in god, because of their faith the boy would not die. She then went searching for the remedy and prepared a bath with it for the boy, who later recuperated. Out of gratefullness the boy's parents butcheres a pig for the speaker. She told them to collect some holy water for clearing out the ghosts that still haunt that house and that nearly had taken the boy with them. Faith is very important to her and in fact she doesn't quite know how she cures people, its simply God who does it. The remedies are merely God's tools. So when one's faith is impeded one might not recover.
