Medicine Man among the Jivaros
Dr. Wilburn Ferguson is the only white man ever to become an authentic medicine man among the fierce Jivaro head hunters in the jungles of Ecuador and Peru. This is the man whose adventures inspired the movie, Medicine Man, starring Sean Connery, but the real story is far more intriguing than the Hollywood version. Ferguson discovered herbal medicines that could benefit mankind but was betrayed by leaders of modern medicine who suppressed his discoveries. 67 minutes.
