Shamanism comprises a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. It is a prominent term in anthropological research. A practitioner of shamanism is known as a shaman.
There are many variations of shamanism throughout the world, but several common beliefs are shared by all forms of shamanism. Shamans are intermediaries between the human and spirit worlds. They can treat illness and are capable of entering supernatural realms to obtain answers to the problems of their community.
The Shamans act as "mediators" in their culture.

The way shamans get sustenance and take part in everyday life varies among cultures. In many Eskimo groups, they provide services for the community and get a "due payment" (some cultures believe the payment is given to the helping spirits), but these goods are only "welcome addenda."

On of the distinct types of shaman is Don Pedro Guerra Gonzales, he lives in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. Don Pedro is a descendent of an ancient healer family like his father before him (Don Jose Guerra). Pedro is a "Palero", a tree shaman. 
In this blog I wrote 2009 august 3 rd about a project to reforest mediacal plants. On his side you can read, that since old times the people of the Amazon have lived without western medicine. And even today the western medicine is only accessible to a minority. On his website you can read more about the fantastic amazon area and the project, this link will show you the different medical trees. The amazon rainforest - lungs of our planet.
