Masyarakat Baduy dan pengobatan tradisional berbasis tanaman

R. Cecep Eka Permana

Abstract


A Baduy community in general is still bound by the traditional rules (pikukuh).
One of the pikukuh said lojor teu meunang dipotong, pendek teu meunang disambung,
which means “what is long might not be cut off, what is short might not be
connected”. The implicated meaning pikukuh is that which does not change
something or anything, or does not accept what is available without increasing
or reducing what is available. This also includes not to accept modern goods
or goods made in factories. The inner struggle of Baduy Luar is between on the
one hand trying to preserve the customs of theirs ancestors, but on the other
hand trying to follow the development in modernity and in their environment.
This is reflected in issues related to health. If a Baduy falls ill, the dilemma is to
choose between modern medical treatment that increasingly is easily accessible
with the consequence to violate the local tradition, or to use the traditional herbs
of which the local knowledge is decreasing with the consequence that is more
difficult to get this kind of therapy.
