Traditional Medicines and Herbal Therapy

Traditional medicine or ethnomedicine refers to the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the speculations, convictions, and experiences indigenous to different cultures used in the maintenance of health and to prevent, diagnose, improve or treatment of physical and mental illness. Herbal treatments are the most popular form of traditional medicine and about 70 to 80 percent of the regions have been using it across the world as a form of primary health care. The traditional medicinal knowledge is thought to be within everyone’s reach and does not require training to practice it. In the present day context contribution made by traditional medicine to modern medicine is enormous. Many well-established drugs such as leptospermone came from phytomedicine research and identification of bioactive molecules of the therapeutic significance of plants used traditionally by tribals and villagers.
