Nick Polizzi and Dan Bailey are really into alternative medicine. So much so, that they traveled to the Amazon jungle for a month to find out how the shamans there use the resources in the environment around them to heal and treat and/or cure chronic and terminal illnesses that Western medicine is still clueless about. Of the eight people who needed medical care thatwent along for the ride, five returned with real improvement or full recovery, two were not cured, and one person did not come back at all. Find out all the details when the film The Sacred Science is screened at the Ridgefield Playhouse this Saturday night, followed by a Q&A with Polizzi and Bailey themselves.
