Improving the Perspectives of Safe and effective use of herbs in Health Care

Author: Abdullahi S. Elmi

Medicine and Traditional medicine

The article proposes a new approach to study traditional medicine, in particular herbalism, in developing countries.

The proposed approach is as follows:

  1. Toxicological study in two species of animal for acute and subacute toxicity

  2. Experimental evaluation of the activity for which the plant or combination of plants is used

  3. Clinical evaluation for efficacy in humans

The purpose is to translate traditional practices into scientific application.
