|English term or phrase: Folk illnesses|
|Folk illnesses are health beliefs and practices shaped by the cultural conventions of a specific group of people. Folk illnesses (sometimes also referred to as lay health beliefs) have specific causes, preventions, and cures based on wider theories of illness (e.g., humoral, Ayurvedic, biomedical), but may also include local health beliefs and values not related to the major theories of illness. Because folk illnesses and remedies are shaped by the way people in specific cultural groups think about the body in health and illness, common practices vary significantly from diagnoses and treatments of the modern Western medical community.|
