Traditional Medicine & Health
According to The World Health Organisation (WHO) :-
Traditional Medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skill and practises based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
