Presents his treatise ‘Fundamentals of Herbal Medicine, Science of Nutrition, Human Anatomy and Body Systems’ Presents his treatise ‘Fundamentals of Herbal Medicine, Science of Nutrition, Human Anatomy and Body Systems’
Fundamentals of Herbal Medicine, Science of Nutrition, Human Anatomy & Body Systems The words ‘Herbal medicine’ do not require any introduction in the twenty-first century despite the most powerful ‘anti-herbalism’ corporate lobbies in the multi-trillion-dollar business of conventional medicines the world over. Though the World Health Organization has time and again been reiterating that about 80% of the world population depends solely upon the Herbal Medicine yet few hundred pharmaceutical companies have so much influence in the international political forces that nobody dares say anything against any of them or favour Herbal medicine. Also known as botanical or phytomedicine, the Herbal Medicine refers to using almost all parts of a plant viz. seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. In fact Herbalism has a long tradition of use outside of conventional medicine and the conventional medicine itself has evolved only from the Herbal Medicine. Each passing day, it is becoming more mainstream as because of emerging interests and funding from the business as well as government bodies, tremendous improvements in analysis and quality control along with advances in clinical research has been establishing further the value of Herbal Medicine in treating and preventing disease. It is a well known fact that while the conventional medicine can only suppress the symptoms of a disease, the Herbal Medicine are capable of curing completely several medical conditions. Yes, no doubt, surgery has touched the greatest of the heights today if it is to be considered part of the conventional medicine. The international Herbal fraternity does need such treatises and it is hoped that many more such works would be seen in the near future by several authorities on the subject.
