ABOUT CONFERENCE

Science Access is pleased to welcome you all for " International Conference on Traditional Medicine” which will be held during July 18-20, 2018 at Edinburgh, Scotland. The theme of the conference is “To Understand the Wisdom of Nature Cures and to Explore the Innovations of Traditional Medicine”

This conference deals with the current research developments in the field of Traditional Medicine and also about the new treatment methods which are devised by scientists to treat various diseases in an easier way. This meeting acts as a best platform for attendees to learn about the recent trends in Traditional research and development.

Traditional Medicine: A traditional health care practice of native people pertaining to human health is termed as Ethnomedicine. The knowledge of certain herbs, animals and minerals that have curative and Palliative effects were transmitted from one generation to another and it is the outcome of bold experimentation through trial and error method over hundreds of years. Ethnomedicine is the mother of all other systems of medicine such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Nature cure and even modern medicine. The traditional herbalists are part and parcel of the community and are often familiar with the details of each family and its environs, so that they are in a better position to deal with their day-to-day problems. In fact, the native healers take care of the common ailments of the folk in their home setting.

The traditional medicinal knowledge is thought to be within every one’s reach and does not require any study or training to practice it. In some families almost all the members are familiarizing with some part or other of herbal remedies. The traditional healers specialize in particular areas of their profession. Thus, we find some medical practitioners are expert in bone setting, wound healing, neurological disorders,poisonous bites etc. and some others in inner healing, especially the use of incantations while others combine both in their treatment. It is important to note that there is no doubt about the efficacy of herbal medicine among its users. Rural and urban poor people in India rely on herbal medicine since these are within their reach. In fact, in remote areas this is the only source of health care available.

 Improvement Market Analysis:

The global herbal medicine market size was valued at USD 71.19 billion in 2016 and is expected to exhibit successful growth over the predicted period. The increase is attributed to the increasing preference of consumers towards Traditional medicines (Ayurveda, Unani and Traditional Medicine) which do not cause overdose toxicity and have fewer side effects. In addition, increasing considerable research investments and funding will support the market growth in near future. 

Increasing preference for cost-effective treatment options for various medical conditions such as cold & cough, kidney disorders, digestive problems and chest congestion is anticipated to enhance the further acceptance of these medicine forms worldwide.

The herbal plants with several medicinal properties are used to treat a variety of disease conditions. Furthermore, a single plant may contain many chemical constituents such as phenols, glycosides, polysacchorides, alkaloids, resins, and terpenoids which demonstrate therapeutic activities in more than one medical conditions.

The global alternative & complementary medicine market was valued at USD 40.32 billion in 2015. Owing to the increasing support by the masses, increased usage of traditional therapeutic methods has a scope for considerable growth in the coming decade. It was estimated that more than 60% of the global population uses some or the other form of traditional medicine as of 2015.

Alternative medicine involves the application of traditional methods of medication such as the use of herbs and other mind and body healing techniques that are mostly based on faith and belief. Many of the governments and regulatory bodies have put up efforts in finding clinical support for the incorporation of alternative treatments to help improve the market and treatment methods.

Most of the alternative therapies include long time medication and are mostly used for chronic pains and ailments. Recent times have seen a surge in the number of studios and outlets in the form of startups and well-established firms offering dietary herbal supplements and many other accessories needed for therapies and this is a trend that is likely to continue and boost market growth throughout the forecast period.
