This contribution is part of the more recent medical history research into medical markets , “folk medicine” and “alternative” healing methods as well as their agents; its central focus is the marginalization of non-approved persons with healing knowledge and its main question is how one can trace – on the basis of the practice journals of a Swiss lay healer – the changes and consistencies in medical lay-practice against the background of growing medical academization.
