Traditional medicine also is known as indigenous or folk medicine comprises medical aspects of traditional knowledge that developed over generations within various societies before the era of modern medicine. The World Health Organization defines traditional medicine as "the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices 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. In some Asian and African countries, up to 80% of the population relies on traditional medicine for their primary health care needs. When adopted outside of its traditional culture, traditional medicine is often called alternative medicine. Practices known as traditional medicines include Ayurveda, Siddha medicine, Unani, ancient Iranian medicine, Iranian (Persian), Islamic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, traditional Korean medicine, acupuncture, Muti, Ifá, and traditional African medicine. Core disciplines that study traditional medicine include herbalism, ethnomedicine, ethnobotany, and medical anthropology.
In Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, 70-95 percent of the population still use traditional medicine (TM) for primary healthcare. And some 100 million people are believed to use traditional, complementary or herbal medicine in the European Union (EU) alone — as high as 90 percent of the population in some countries. The industry is worth big money. In 2012, global sales of Chinese herbal medicine reached US$83 billion, up more than 20 percent from 2011. The global market for all herbal supplements and remedies could reach US$115 billion by 2020, with Europe the largest and the Asia-Pacific the fastest-growing markets. The demand is driven by women as the main consumers of dietary supplements, by the growing emphasis on healthy living and concerns over the side-effects of mainstream drugs.
