The ones that mastered this art, became practitioners of folk medicine. It’s from all of these practitioners that the references to “good” or “white” witches originate from plus the terms “dark”, “black”, or “evil” when their cures didn’t work. Each time a cure failed, it had been considered that the healers “familiar” or “animal guide” have been demonized.

In the time the witch trials across Europe, many healers were in prison for witchcraft. The truth is, over one 50 % of the accused witches in Hungary appear to have been healers of some sort. In France, many healers were also accused of witchcraft.
