Track 1: Holistic Medicine

Holistic medicine is form of healing which considers whole person body, mind, spiritual, mental and emotions in the search for optimal health and wellness. According to holistic medicine philosophy, anyone can achieve optimal health the primary goal of holistic medicine practice by obtaining proper balance in life. Holistic medicine practitioners trust that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their all together health. The holistic doctor may use all forms of health care, from conventional medication to alternative therapies, to treat a patient. For example, if a person is suffering from migraine headaches pays a visit to a holistic doctor, instead of walking out simply with medications, the doctor will likely take a look at all the potential factors that may cause the person's headaches, such as other health problems, like diet and sleep habits, stress and personal problems, and preferred spiritual practices. The treatment scheme may involve drugs to relieve symptoms, but also lifestyle modifications to help prevent the headaches from reoccur. It is also based on the belief that unconditional love and support is the most powerful healer and a person is ultimately responsible for his or her own health and well-being.

Track 2: Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese medicine aims to restore the body's balance and harmony between the natural opposing forces of yin and yang, which can block qi and cause disease. Traditional Chinese medicine includes acupuncture, diet, herbal therapy, meditation, physical exercise, and massage.  A Nature editorial described TCM as "fraught with pseudoscience", and said that the most obvious reason why it has not delivered many cures is that the majority of its treatments have no logical mechanism of action. TCM is widely used in the Sinosphere, where it has a long history, and in later years it is also practiced outside of China. One of the basic tenets of TCM is that the body's vital energy is circulating through channels, called meridians, that have branches connected to bodily organs and functions. The concept of vital energy is pseudoscience. Concepts of the body and of disease used in TCM reflect its ancient origins and its emphasis on dynamic processes over material structure, similar to European humoral theory. In more recent years the emerging interdisciplinary science of bioinformatics has provided "biological evidence for the basic understanding of TCM mechanisms, safety and efficacy of TCM treatments".

Track 3: Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Needle therapy or acupuncture means Inserting needles into the peripheral skin, hypodermic tissue, and muscles at specific regions. The acupuncturist must know the capacity of every needle therapy point and its association with other needle therapy focuses. It is the main part of traditional Chinese medicine. This hypothesis balances the flow of energy by various mind and body practices such as qi or chi to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. Acupuncture Entities like Diet and Rehabilitation Techniques, Physical Health, Exercise and Trauma, Biosciences in Rehabilitation, Cancer and Rehabilitation. Acupuncture professionals believe that, By inserting needles into specific points along meridians can make energy flow, which will re-balance. Many Western professionals view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Pharmaceutical Oriental prescription has been set up for more than 2,500 years and incorporates needle treatment, common medication, moxibustin, Oriental back rub and Oriental sustenance. It is a course of action of solution that orders body structures into specific way. Oriental medicine is penetrated in China, Japan, Korea, Viet Nam, Thailand, Tibet and India. One strength is stunned to find that Oriental mending theory and practice has spread to England, Germany, France, Spain and Russia, a lot of Middle and South America, and Africa.

Track 4: Herbs in Cancer Therapy

Cancer is a major public health problem in most developed countries; however, there have been notable improvements in the survival rate of patients over the past three decades owing to early detection and progress in medical treatment. A substantial number of patients with cancer receive chemotherapy or chemo radiotherapy and benefit from treatment with anticancer drugs. There is no reliable scientific evidence that herbal remedies alone can cure or treat cancer. However, some plant extracts have been found to have anti-cancer effects and have been turned into chemotherapy drugs. Accumulating evidence suggests that Japanese herbal medicines, called Kampo, have beneficial effects on cancer chemotherapy-induced side effects. Rikkunshito ameliorates cisplatin-induced anorexia through an antagonistic effect on the 5-HT receptors and by increasing the serum ghrelin levels. Hangeshashinto improves irinotecan-induced diarrhea and chemotherapy-induced mucositis by inhibiting the activity of β-glucuronidase as well as the synthesis of prostaglandin E2. Goshajinkigan prevents oxaliplatin-induced neurotoxicity, possibly through suppressing functional alterations of the transient receptor potential channels.  In this review, we will summarize the currently available literature regarding the clinical efficacy and potential mechanisms of Kampo medicines in the treatment of cancer chemotherapy-induced side effects.

Some Herbs that Cure Cancer:

  • Echinacea
  • Garlic
  • Turmeric
  • Burdock
  • Carotenoids
  • Green tea
  • Ginseng
  • Black cohosh

Track 5: Medicinal Plants and Ayurveda

Medicinal plants, also called medicinal herbs, have been discovered and used in traditional medicine practices since prehistoric times. Plants synthesise hundreds of chemical compounds for functions including defence against insects, fungi, diseases, and herbivorous mammals. Numerous phytochemicals with potential or established biological activity have been identified. However, since a single plant contains widely diverse phytochemicals, the effects of using a whole plant as medicine are uncertain. Further, the phytochemical content

and pharmacological actions, if any, of many plants having medicinal potential remain unassessed by rigorous scientific research to define efficacy and safety.

Cure for Medicinal Plants:

  • Aloe
  • Tulsi
  • Neem
  • Turmeric and
  • Ginger 

Ayurveda is a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. Globalized and modernized practices derived from Ayurveda traditions are a type of alternative medicine. In countries beyond India, Ayurvedic therapies and practices have been integrated in general wellness applications and in some cases in medical use. The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians. Ayurveda therapies have varied and evolved over more than two millennia. Therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances (perhaps under the influence of early Indian alchemy. Ancient Ayurveda texts also taught surgical techniques, including rhinoplasty, kidney stone extractions, sutures, and the extraction of foreign objects.

Benefits of Ayurveda:

  • Weight Loss and Maintenance
  • Healthy and Glowing Skin and Hair
  • Say Goodbye to Stress
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Cleanse the Body
  • Lower Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Symptoms of Illness and Diseases.

Track 6: Naturopathy and Homeopathy

Naturopathy or naturopathic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that employs an array of pseudoscientific practices branded as "natural", "non-invasive", or promoting "self-healing". Both Homeopathy and Naturopathy are same things. In naturopathy, ailment can be dealt with or anticipated without utilizing any medications.  In which professionals are bound to endorse various treatment approaches like enhancements, herbs and dietary changes alternately, homeopathy is a solitary arrangement of prescription in which specialists center absolutely around the utilization of homeopathic meds.  Naturopathy is giving a domain which supports recovery from infection. Though homeopathy is to discover a prescription dependent on the law of comparable, or 'what a substance can cause, it can fix. Most essential contaminations treated by homeopaths are headache, asthma, discouragement, hypochondriac issue, non-particular hypersensitivity, non-specific affectability, joint pain, dermatitis, Allergic rhinitis and hypertension. The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and folk medicine, rather than evidence-based medicine (EBM). Naturopathic practitioners generally recommend against following modern medical practices, including but not limited to medical testing, drugs, vaccinations, and surgery.

Track 7: Arabic and Unani Medicine

The term Yunani means ("Ionian"/"Greek"), as the Perso-Arabic system of medicine was based on the teachings of the Greek physicians Hippocrates and Galen. The Supreme Court of India and Indian Medical Association regard unqualified practitioners of Unani, Ayurveda and Siddha medicine as quackery. Practitioners of alternative medicine, including those practicing Unani medicine, are not authorized to practice medicine in India unless trained at a qualified medical institution, registered with the government, and listed as physicians annually in The Gazette of India. Identifying practitioners of Unani medicine, the Supreme Court of India stated in 2018 that unqualified, untrained quacks are posing a great risk to the entire society and playing with the lives of people without having the requisite training and education in the science from approved institutions. Arab and Persian elaborations upon the Greek system of medicine by figures like Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and al-Razi (Rhazes) influenced the early development of Unani. The medical tradition of medieval Islam was introduced to India by the 13th century with the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate and it took its own course of development during the Mughal Empire,  influenced by Indian medical teachings of Sushruta and Charaka. Alauddin Khalji had several eminent physicians (Hakims) at his royal courts. This royal patronage led to the development of Unani in India, and also the creation of Unani literature.


Track 8: Toxicology Studies of Plant Products

Toxicology is the study of how chemical substances interact with living systems and affect normal processes, and the use of this information to predict safe exposure levels. Toxicological research and testing helps us to live safely and to derive benefit from natural substances while avoiding harm. A brief detailed study of biological, physical, chemical or any miscellaneous factor, that effects any part of the living organism is known as toxicity. Toxicology is the fundamental science of poisons. Toxicological studies help to decide even if a new drug should be accepted for clinical use or not. Depending on the duration of publicity of animals to drug, toxicological studies may be of three types viz. acute, sub-acute and chronic. Toxicity depends not only on the dose of the material but also on the toxic properties of the material. The relationship between these two factors is important in the assessment of therapeutic dosage in pharmacology and herbalism. It is necessary to investigate the herbs scientifically which have been used in traditional medicine to improve the quality of healthcare. Toxicological research involving laboratory animals is necessary to ensure and enhance human and animal health and protection of the environment. The WHO has recognized the contribution and value of the herbal medicines used by a large segment of worlds population. Toxicology also helps us develop the best treatments in accidental over exposure. Toxicologists know that no substance is risk-free.

Track 9: Traditional Use & Safety of Herbal Medicines

About 100 years ago, natural herbs were the main remedy for treating human diseases. It has been estimated that 25% of modern medicines are made from plants first used traditionally, such as aspirin, artemisinin, ephedrine, and paclitaxel. However, there is limited scientific evidence to establish the safety and efficacy of most herbal products. With the wide application of chemical drugs, herbal medicine and other traditional therapies have shown sharp contraction. As a country with rich herbal resource, China is not an exception. In recent decades, spectrum of disease has shifted and the complex chronic diseases have become the main part. The effect of Western medicine treatment is not satisfactory and problems of the adverse drug reaction are also very prominent. The complementary and alternative treatment, especially the herbal medicine, has gained more attention and has also become popular. About 80% of people worldwide rely on herbal medicines for some aspects of their primary health care. In 2008, the global market for herbal remedies was about USD 83 billion, and now it is about 100 billion. Moreover, safety guarantee system comprised rational clinical practice and risk monitoring should be established to improve the safety of herbal medicine and to play more important role in maintaining human health.

Benefits of Herbal Medicine:

  • More affordable than conventional medicine.
  • Easier to obtain than prescription medicine.
  • Stabilizes hormones and metabolism.
  • Natural healing.
  • Strength in immune system.

Track 10: Massage Therapies

Massage therapy is one of the oldest healthcare practices known. References to massage are found in ancient Chinese medical texts written more than 4,000 years ago. Massage has been advocated in Western healthcare practices since the time of Hippocrates, the "father of medicine". Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, consisting primarily of manual (hands-on) techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and moving muscles and body tissues. Massage therapy may also be recommended for its documented clinical benefits such as improving pulmonary function in young asthma patients, reducing psychoemotional distress in individuals who suffer from chronic inflammatory bowel disease, helping with weight gain, improving motor development in premature infants, and enhancing immune system functioning. Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic patterns of muscular tension using slow strokes, direct pressure, or friction directed across the grain of the muscles. It is applied with greater pressure and to deeper layers of muscle than Swedish, which is why it is called deep tissue and is effective for chronic muscular tension. Neuromuscular massage is a form of deep massage that is applied to individual muscles. It is used primarily to release trigger points (intense knots of muscle tension that refer pain to other parts of the body) and also to increase blood flow. It is often used to reduce pain. Trigger point massage and myotherapy are similar forms. Acupressure applies finger or thumb pressure to specific points located on the energy pathways or "meridians" in order to release blocked energy along these meridians that may be causing physical discomfort.

Track 11: Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy

Harvesting and conservation of medicinal plants. Quality controls of plant material. Identity of sample, origin, macro e micromorphologic examination. Drugs containing phenols, coumarins, flavonoids, tannins, carotenoids. The term "pharmacognosy" was used for the first time by the Austrian physician Schmidt in 1811 and 1815 by Crr. Anotheus Seydler in work titled Analecta Pharmacognostica. Originally during the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century "pharmacognosy" was used to define the branch of medicine or commodity sciences which deals with drugs in their crude, or unprepared, form. Crude drugs are the dried, unprepared material of plant, animal or mineral origin, used for medicine. The study of these materials under the name pharmakognosie was first developed in German-speaking areas of Europe, while other language areas often used the older term materia medica taken from the works of Galen and Dioscorides. As late as the beginning of the 20th century, the subject had developed mainly on the botanical side, being particularly concerned with the description and identification of drugs both in their whole state and in powder form.

Drugs containing terpenoids or steroids. Alkaloid-containing drugs. Phytotherapic treatments of respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, urogenital diseases. Phytotherapic treatments for disorders of the central nervous system. Phytotherapic treatments for inflammation. Evaluation of extraneous elements, weight loss at drying.

Track 12: Herbal Cosmetics and Nutraceuticals

Herbal Cosmetics, referred as Products, are formulated, using various permissible cosmetic ingredients to form the base in which one or more herbal ingredients are used to provide defined cosmetic benefits only, shall be called as “Herbal Cosmetics”. The herbal cosmetics are the preparations containing phytochemical from a variety of botanical sources, which influences the functions of skin and provide nutrients necessary for the healthy skin or hair. They are the preparations containing phytochemical from a variety of botanical sources, which influences the functions of skin and provide nutrients. They are formulated using various permissible cosmetic ingredients to form the base in which one or more herbal ingredients are used to provide defined cosmetic benefits. Herbs do not produce instant cures. They offer a way to put the body in proper tune with nature A huge number of cosmetic and toiletry formulations have been designed and developed based u p o n Indian Herbs recently. Other than traditionally documented applications, some modern trials have also been using the utility of Indian herbs in Personal Care products.

The term “nutraceutical” is used to describe these medicinally or nutritionally functional foods. Nutraceuticals, which have also been called medical foods, designer foods, phytochemicals, functional foods and nutritional supplements, include such everyday products as “bio” yoghurts and fortified breakfast cereals, as well as vitamins, herbal remedies and even genetically modified foods and supplements. Nutraceutical is a pharmaceutical-grade and standardized nutrient. They are products derived from food sources that are purported to provide extra health benefits, in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods. Everything from vitamins, supplements to sports drinks, snacks, dairy products, and pre-prepared diet meals could be considered as nutraceuticals.

Non secular treatments, manual strategies and exercises, carried out singularly or in aggregate to deal with, diagnose and save you ailments or keep well-being. inside the ultimate decade conventional medicinal drug has come to be very famous in Cameroon, partly due to the long unsustainable economic scenario in the United States. The excessive fee of drugs and boom in drug resistance to common diseases like Malaria, Microorganism infections and different sexually transmitted sicknesses has prompted the healing method to alternative conventional medicine as an alternative for concerted search for new chemical entities (NCE).Though traditional medicine has come into existence and practice it has some ethical issues which are to be considered for global health recognition. 

  • Regulation of traditional medicine
  • Bioavailability of herbal drug
  • Status of Herbal medicine in India
  • Safety issues
  • Need for clinical trials

Track 14: Modern Medicines

Conventional modern medicine is sometimes called allopathic medicine. It involves the use of drugs or surgery, often supported by counseling and lifestyle measures. Alternative and complementary types of medicine include acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal medicine, art therapy, traditional Chinese medicine, and many more. Modern medicine has done much in the fields of infectious diseases and emergencies to aid cure. In most other fields, it is mostly control that it aims for, which is another name for palliation. Pharmacology, psychopharmacology included, is mostly directed towards such control and palliation too. These days, medicines come from a variety of sources. Many were developed from substances found in nature, and even today many are extracted from plants. Some medicines are made in labs by mixing together a number of chemicals. Others, like penicillin, are byproducts of organisms such as fungus. Hippocrates is considered to be the father of modern medicine because in his books, which are more than 70. He described in a scientific manner, many diseases and their treatment after detailed observation. He lived about 2400 years ago. The advantages of Modern Medicine are chronic diseases, correct disabling physical conditions, and cure molecular deficiencies

Benefits of Modern Medicine:

  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Curing infection
  • Relieving pain.

Track 15: Herbal Drug Procreation & Manufacturing

Herbal procreation means a dosage consisting of one or more herbs or processed herbs in specified quantities to provide nutrition and other benefits use for diagnose as well as mitigate diseases of human beings and animals. Among natural and traditional pharmacological medications, home grown prescription has turned out to be most well-known type of human services. This medication should be tried for proficiency utilizing customary preliminary approach and a few explicit home grown concentrates has been shown to be solid for explicit conditions. Multiplication of Herbal prescription methods a little medication measurement comprising of at least one prepared herbs in evaluated adds up to bear the cost of eating routine and different advantages use for analyze and additionally relieve sicknesses of people and creatures. Because of the large and growing use of natural derived substances in all over the world, it is not wise to rely also on the tradition or supposed millenarian beliefs; explanatory and pragmatic studies are useful and should be considered complementary in the acquisition of reliable data both for health caregiver and patients. Herbs are natural products and their chemical composition varies depending on several factors and therefore varying from people to people, from energetic decoctions to the use of herbal extracts following Western methodologies of mainstream medicine.


  • Stabilizes hormones and metabolism.
  • Natural healing.
  • Strength in immune system.
  • Fewer side effects.
  • Cost effective.

Track 16: Traditional Pharmaceuticals and Biologic Products

A biopharmaceutical, also known as a biological medical product, or biologic, is any pharmaceutical drug product manufactured in, extracted from, or semisynthesized from biological sources. Different from totally synthesized pharmaceuticals, they include vaccines, blood, blood components, allergenics, somatic cells, gene therapies, tissues, recombinant therapeutic protein, and living medicines used in cell therapy. Biologics can be composed of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids or complex combinations of these substances, or may be living cells or tissues. They (or their precursors or components) are isolated from living sources—human, animal, plant, fungal, or microbial. Terminology surrounding biopharmaceuticals varies between groups and entities, with different terms referring to different subsets of therapeutics within the general biopharmaceutical category. Some regulatory agencies use the terms biological medicinal products or therapeutic biological product to refer specifically to engineered macromolecular products like protein- and nucleic acid-based drugs, distinguishing them from products like blood, blood components, or vaccines, which are usually extracted directly from a biological source. Specialty drugs, a recent classification of pharmaceuticals, are high-cost drugs that are often biologic. The European Medicines Agency uses the term advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) for medicines for human use that are "based on genes, cells, or tissue engineering", including gene therapy medicines, somatic-cell therapy medicines, tissue-engineered medicines, and combinations thereof. Within EMA contexts, the term advanced therapies refers specifically to ATMPs, although that term is rather nonspecific outside those contexts.

Track 17: Challenges and Future Directions of Traditional Medicine

Traditional medicine (TM) is defined as “the sum total of knowledge, skills and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures that are used to maintain health, as well as to prevent, diagnose, improve or treat physical and mental illnesses. The other major challenges on traditional medicine and MPs were constraints and include lack of data on seriously threatened and endangered medicinal plant species. Others include inadequate and conflicting guidelines on management and utilization of natural resources, especially medicinal plants. Traditional medicine is the ancient and culture–bound medical practice which existed in human societies before the application of modern science to health. Traditional medicine is now widely used in the Region and practised side by side with modern medicine in most countries. Certain European Countries have been investigating the utilization of herbs and has been by and by since the hundreds of years. The fundamental herbs have no side effects, cures are in a state of harmony with nature which is the greatest in addition to point where no other drug can claim these facts. In Asia, utilization of herbal medicine is maybe more pervasive than western nations. A portion of the cases of Herbal medicines are Echinacea, Kava, Valerian, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng and St. John's Wort.

Track 18: COVID-19 & Alternative Medicine

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, and bats. The new strain of coronavirus identified as the cause of the outbreak of respiratory illness in people first detected in Wuhan, China, has been named COVID-19. (Formerly, it was referred to as 2019-nCoV.) Rarely, animal coronaviruses jump species and infect people, and then possibly spread between people, such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with COVID-19. The media has reported that some people are seeking “alternative” remedies to prevent infection with COVID-19 or to treat the virus. Some of these purported remedies include herbal therapies and teas. There is no scientific evidence that any of these alternative remedies can prevent or cure the illness caused by COVID-19. In fact, some of them may not be safe to consume. While scientists at NIH and elsewhere are evaluating candidate therapies and vaccines to treat and prevent the novel coronavirus, currently there are no treatments or vaccines for COVID-19 infection approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure to this virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of this and other respiratory viruses, including the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, and keep children home from school when they are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Scope and Importance:

Global Herbal Medicine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during Period of 2017 to 2023. Herbal medicines are a kind of dietary supplements extracted from different parts of the plant extracts such as leaves, bark, seeds, berries, and roots. Herbal medicines are available in various dosage forms such as tablets, extracts, dried plants, and other forms. A customary medicinal services routine of indigenous individuals relating to human health is named as Ethnomedicine. The learning of specific herbs, creatures and minerals that have corrective and comforting impacts were transmitted starting with one era then onto the next and it is the result of striking experimentation through experimentation technique over many years. Ethnomedicine is the mother of every other arrangement of prescription, for example, Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Nature cure and even advanced medication. The conventional cultivators are a vital part of the group and are frequently acquainted with the points of interest of every family and its environs, so they are in a superior position to manage their everyday issues. Actually the local healers deal with the normal diseases of the people in their home setting. The traditional healers specialize in particular areas of their profession. Thus we find some medical practitioners are expert in bone setting, wound healing, poisonous bites, neurological disorders, etc. and some others in spiritual healing, especially the use of chants 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. In India, poor peoples of rural and urban area mostly depend on herbal remedies since these are within their reach. In fact in remote areas this is the only source of health care available.
