“Refueling with axé”, or religious therapy in the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé

In the article the author stresses the role of the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé in health therapies, showing that, in spite of linking Candomblé mostly with Black Brazilians from lower social strata, successfully applied religious therapies based on the strategy of “refueling with axé” act nowadays as attracting poles for many well-educated, rich, white representatives of the local elites, who find in Candomblé ways of improving their health, but also sense of community and support that sometimes even make these “clients”, in spite of still existing prejudice, take a decision about initiation.
