R. L. Moszabout this book: Curandero is a novel recounting one patient's thought-provoking journey into the realm of mind-body medicine. Terminally ill at only twenty-seven years of age, Stefan Campeau has reached an unsuccessful conclusion with established treatment protocols to fight his disease. He meets enigmatic oncologist Dr. Miguel Calderón and controversial herbalist Dr. Brian Sandler. Working in concurrence with each other, the two doctors' therapies lead to an unexplained healing.
Curandero is a metaphysical story. It relates to things that are thought to exist but cannot be seen. A compilation of true experiences interwoven into a fictitious story, the novel explores the mysterious power behind mind-body medicine and human relationships. The dreams discussed in the story are actual dreams, the healings all fact, and while it's impossible to explain, nevertheless true, because they occurred.
I chose the name "Calderón" for Stefan's primary doctor because it is a Spanish occupation surname and refers to the occupation of "tinker." Tinker: an act of attempting to repair something . . . to set right; repair.
The world abounds with mystery. I hoped to convey this in my novel.
