How do you make a zombie? A real zombified person like in Haiti?

Question by .: How do you make a zombie? A real zombified person like in Haiti?
I’m tired of every day ppl on here asking “are vampires real”?

Let’s talk zombies instead, shall we?! They say that in Haiti Vodou masters can put a curse on some people and they’ll believe it and turn into a zombie. I don’t think they eat brains instead of Count Chocula (Haitian version) for breakfast but for the rest they pretty much become their master’s slave.

Anyone know about this and how they become zombified?

Best answer:

Answer by Goblin g
Unfortunate people are given a start drug which slows their heart down so that for all intensive purposes, give the impression of death.

After a funeral, if the person is dug-up before they suffocate, they are given the antidote and “come back to life”. They are horrifed as to what has happened to them, as well as frightening their families.

The entire “process”, if you will, is basically the same thing which would happen if a person was given a bit too much sedative during surgery. When the Doctors realize this, these people are “brought back” from the brink of death.

Have a lovely rest of the evening.

    A houngan is a Vodun priest, a mambo a priestess and a bokur a Vodun sorcerer believed to be endowed with the power to perform black magic. Powders used by the sorcerers give them power over their victims, with one of those powers being zombification.

    In Haiti, zombification is a punishment for severe crimes. Coupe poudre is the powder used by a bokur to induce zombification. The active ingredient of coupe poudre is tetradotoxin (TTX), produced in the liver and ovaries of some species of puffer fish (e.g. Fugu rubripes). TTX is a neurotoxin 500 times more potent than cyanide. It acts by blocking the sodium ion channels which enable nerve and heart cells to produce electrical impulses. In miniscule doses TTX causes a near-death state in which metabolic functions are depressed, so that breathing and pulse rate are undetectable. Total paralysis follows, although the brain and senses remain intact. The victim is thought to be dead and is buried alive.

    A few days after being buried, the ‘zombie’ is disinterred and given another powder containing atropine and scopolamine. These are toxic and hallucinogenic compounds from the plants Datura metel and Datura stramonium (both known as the ‘zombie cucumber’). This powder, when administered, puts the victim into a permanent state of delirium and disorientation in which they experience delusions and hallucinations. He or she can then be made to do menial work for those against which the crime was committed.

    They’re not actually dead they’re given a poison that paralyses them and mimics signs of death.

    If you inflicted someone with the rabies virus, it is possible that they may exhibit zombie like symptoms if left untreated by medicine ! I don’t suggest you infect yourself, as you would probably die rather quickly !

    Dig up a corpse and say the spell. Zombies like any other monsters don’t exist. They are a figment of imagination.
