Magical realism as art of the twentieth century and its comparison with the Natural and Traditional Medicine is conceptualized. From the definitions of Natural Medicine, World Health Organization and other international organizations, the presence of the practice and development of the medicine in the world is identified. Mainstream criticisms that were made from the Western allopathic medicine are established. Finally, it refers to the need for an approach to this phenomenon from the public health and some propositions are made.
