Limpia
The consultant is treated with traditional cleansing/healing practices by the consultant. The consultant rubbs the collector's body with basil leaves and two farm eggs, which "suck up" the bad substances inside the patient's body. This treatment is accompanyied by prayers to several saints in Spanish, asking for their support to heal the patient. A mouthful of mezcal is blown onto the patient's head. The recording of the speech is virtually unintelligible.
