Why a good percent of Nigerians despise their traditional medicine

Most times,one may rightly ask: why would people lack in presence of many wealth? Africa, Nigeria, is highly and richly blessed by most effective medical care on earth. It is their traditional herbs that even English and orthodox medicines are produced from. The effectiveness of traditional herbs have been discussed previously.



Have you seen the mixtures of traditional herbal leaves?The look and colour of it isn't a fanciful one. In fact most times,one could not spell the color. So discouraging! Another challenge of traditional medicine which makes it despicable to people is its lack of packaging. It lacks proper, hygienic packing and storage. This makes people who are conscious of hygiene ask if this is truly medication for intake.

Most times when you meet a herbalist to give you some leaves to treat a certain ailment, he simply goes to a nearby bush,cuts one or two leaves, dust it off and ask you to chew it immediately. Some herbalist who care enough, simply rinse it in water without proper washing and give you to eat. Can you imagine that?

It is now obvious why Nigerians despise their traditional medicines. If only African, Nigerian herbalists can engage in careful studies and proper hygiene packaging, traditional types of medicines will continue to be an injurious abuse!!!
