A three-phase cure for someone who has been conjured was described in an 1898 article for the Southern Workman as reported by Anderson (2005). The process by which a charm was located in the case of a victim whose body was infested by snakes and whose hair was falling out was described thus:
Unless the victim was treated speedily, she would die. The conjurer announced that his female client had an enemy who was in love with her husband, but he remained vague as the person’s identity. Next, he discovered the location of a harmful charm by sprinkling the blood of a chicken into his left hand and then striking it with the forefinger of the other hand. The direction in which the most blood flew was that in which the immediate source of the magic lay. Following the blood, the hoodooist dug in the earth until he uncovered a bottle containing various articles ranging from a dead snake to bent needles. With the source of the malady removed, the conjurer easily cured the symptoms by application of a variety of unidentified home remedies. His last act was to turn the spell back on the one who cast it. (Anderson, 2005, p. 102).
