Shamans are said to treat illness by mending the soul. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans may visit other dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment.
