Plant Medicines for Clinical Trial

Subject

Plant Medicines

Description

Our species has always used plants as medicines, during our 200,000 year existence. This is made
obvious by the plant medicines found in mummy burials, around the world, dating back thousands
of years. Human beings evolved using plant medicines to stay alive. This has resulted in a genetic
selection in which those who were healed by plant medicines and survived were able to pass on their
genes. Modern humans must continue to use plant medicines. When a Traditional Healer is asked how her people learned how to use a specific plant medicine,
the answer is usually that God taught them. Each of us has a spiritual sense that can be used to seek
answers [1]. Finding a new plant medicine involves fasting, praying, and spending as much as four
days with the plant that will become a new medicine [2]. Traditional Healers are still the major or
only source of healthcare for many regions of the world. The loss of Traditional Healers in some areas
has resulted in major changes in healthcare, sometimes to the detriment of the people [3,4]. Since
Traditional Healers may be religious leaders also, they provide moral direction for the community. The displacement of traditional religious beliefs has been detrimental in some regions
