Importance of Herbal Medicine

Medicinal plants are important sources for pharmaceutical manufacturing. New researches in the field of traditional healing systems has led to a resurgence of interest in herbal medicines in Europe and North America, where herbal products have been incorporated into so-called alternative, complementary, holistic or integrative medical systems. Reports of consumers showed positive attitudes towards herbal products because they believe them to be of natural rather than synthetic origin, they believe that such products are more likely to be safe than drugs and are considered part of a healthy lifestyle, and they can help to avoid unnecessary contact with conventional western medicine.
