People have always been doubting the healing processes of the indigenous people. The modern person trusts science over the ways of their ancestors. This is where a young girl proved everyone wrong by sticking to her traditions.
Mircyla is an 11-year-old healer who uses vapor to treat ailments. She uses the art of Vaporadora. Mircyla Prado Pintallo began to learn this practice when she was only 9 years of age.
The process of Vaporadora starts by steeping a medicinal plant in hot, boiling water. The patient then has to inhale the vapor while standing over the boiling water.

Mircyla, the healer, then takes everything out and reads the leaves to check if the healing process had succeeded. She also prescribes other herbs to help the patient regain good health.
Mircyla is an Ashaninka, an indigenous people who reside in the rain forests of Peru. They are the only tribe, that is known to use vapor in this manner as healers.
A Deeper Look Into The Peruvian Healer Tribes
The Ashaninkas are one of the largest tribes in South America.
Their homeland covers a vast region, from the Upper Juruá River in Brazil to the watersheds of the Peruvian Andes.
Recently, the Simpatia Ashaninka have reported unusual encounters with dozens of uncontacted Indians close to their homes. It is believed that these uncontacted tribes have fled to Brazil from Peru to escape the waves of illegal loggers invading their territory, a situation with which the Ashaninka are familiar.
For over a century, colonists, rubber tappers, loggers, oil companies, and Maoist guerillas have invaded their lands. “Their story of oppression and land theft is echoed in the lives of tribal peoples across the world,” says Stephen Corry, former Director of Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights.
