Ancient Incan Remedies

Volume 6, Issue 11, May 20, 2014


As the Incan tribes fought, sought rest, and took cover away from their captors the Spanish Conquistadors, the French invaders, and the British invasion. The tribes of the Rainforest turned to the mountainous caverns, the Andean mountains, the Amazonian rainforests, the surrounding deserts, and caves to shelter themselves. The rainforest was a formidable shelter that served a very valuable purpose in keeping the invaders at bay.

When they (the invaders) entered the rainforest many began to develop fevers and tropical disease due to the tiny microscopic bugs that took over where the tribes left off in combat. The invaders were not immune to any of the onslaught of different mosquitos that had air-borne viruses and blood carrying viruses that the mosquito carried was something the invading fractions had never encountered before.

The tribes of the Amazon rainforest were immune and used to the viruses and mosquito biting microbes that were injected into the bloodstream to keep their captors at bay and fight them off.

It was a blessing for the tribes of the rainforest because they were to the ones that the invaders sought to capture, when they became the ones to capture the invaders and in turn became the healers and lifesaving hosts of their invading fractions.

The invaders became the captive of the native people, and tribes of the Amazon because they could not fight off the diseases without their hosts (the Amazon tribes) help.
