Traditional practitioners use a wide variety of treatments ranging from "magic" to traditional methods such as fasting and dieting, herbal consultations, bathing, massage, and spiritual prayers. A large percentage of the people in South Africa also rely on traditional remedies to treat their animals for various diseases. Some healers may employ the use of charms, incantations, and the casting of spells in their treatments. The dualistic nature of traditional African medicine between the body and soul, matter, and spirit and their interactions with one another are also seen as a form of magic. In African cultures, the act of healing is considered a religious act. Therefore, the healing process often attempts to appeal to God because it is ultimately God who can not only inflict sickness, but provide a cure. Africans have a religious world view which makes them aware of the feasibility of divine or spirit intervention in healing with many healers referring to the supreme god as the source of their medical power.
