The Status Of Herbal Medicine In Nigeria

A high population growth rate of 2.8% annually and poverty, coupled with dwindling economic reserves in the country, have lead Nigerians to resort to more affordable health treatment.

As the population increases, the demand for traditional medicine will increase. In order to provide affordable health care, especially to those who cannot afford orthodox medicine, several state governments have sponsored tradomedicine fairs and exhibitions which seek to enlighten the public on the possible cures from this kind of traditional medicine.

Nigeria has established national and state traditional medicine boards for the regulation of herbal medicine practices and to promote cooperation and research. The Federal College of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Lagos, is used by the federal Ministry of Health to train herbalists.

My grandmother was a herbalist. She taught me how to mix herbs to cure ailments. I grew up with her from the age of 15 years old. I was going to school  and at the same time returned to her shop of herbs learning different kinds of mixture of herbs and also their names. I have been involved in herbal mixture and I also used it to cure a lot of people who orthodox medicine could not cure even though a lot of people have abused herbal medicine. Selling herbal mixture, popularly called agbo, has also been a great source of income to me and my family.
