The Melanau traditionally believed that most sickness are caused by supernatural elements. Therefore, they can identify more than 40 main such spirits.
In its early stage, or if it is slight, the sickness is usually dealt with by the Dukun. Thus, an expert in herbal cures and magic charms, who would also prescribe medicine. If the sickness persists, then an expert would be invited to carve image of the responsible spirit in sago pith, called a Blum / Belum or Melanau statue. Scary statue indeed.
