African Traditional Medicine
African traditional medicine has its origin in the African sub-continent. Initially, it was said to be the primitive method of medication but now it has gained attention among the research scientist. The traditional African treatment mainly focuses on the patient's social environment as the main cause of the disease rather than medical or physical reasons. This medicine is found to be effective and economical for several diseases and so many developing countries show interest in integrating African traditional medicine with the modern health care system. It is also found that this traditional medicine is even capable of treating many dangerous viral diseases like Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and Ebola.
